I could make out that Obergruppenführer Smith's armband said something like "New York Corps" but I can't make out what Oberst-Gruppenführer Heydrich's armband says, maybe it's in German?

What does it say?

This is indeed German, and it says “Großes Reich,” which means “great reich/realm/empire.” The script is Fraktur (blackletter):

  • Damn. You beat me to it while I was editing. A little later you can also see that these are the only two words on the armband, that Reich is followed only by empty space.
