A special patch will be worn at this year's Army/Navy Game--the SEAL Team 3 patch of Brenden Looney.

Looney was one of six Americans killed in a 2010 helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan.

Looney's family just visited Virginia Beach three months ago, to participate in the Travis Manion 9/11 Heroes Run in his honor.

Navy linebacker Brye French will wear the former Navy football player's patch.
