Real Warriors wear Pink

The picture below first appeared in the NY Times a few days ago. It was taken while soldiers were responding to an attack on their FOB. This particular soldier was probably sleeping when it happened, and being the professional he is, grabbed his helmet, body armor and weapon and headed to the foxhole. He knew it was more important to get out to his fighting position and help defend his base and his fellow soldiers than worry about taking the time to get dressed.

This is how good our soldiers are, they can still kill bad guys all the while very comfortable in their manhood. You can read more about the story here,

You can buy an identical pair of boxers here,

    I am convinced these were white boxers until they were washed with his red Woorleys custard shirt!

    I love that our heroes are always ready when protecting us and our freedoms.

    All I gotta say is that’s better than going commando, although I doubt the photo would have made the newspaper then. 😉
