  • First off, how cute that they say "i love NY". Secondly, way to hustle to defend your post!!! And manly men wear pink boxers and flip flops ;). I honestly think it's great. But do wonder if the boxers were originally white and got a red sock in the wash or something....lol

  • While DH was over there he slept in shorts and a tshirt regardless of the weather so that he couldn't be called in the middle of the night and have to fight like that. I thought it was funny in the pic, but to me that just shows that there is a job to be done at all times and our men and women will sacrifice anything including dignity to defend our freedom!

  • Told DH about and he laughed and said that it actually can happen alot. They can get called to go out at any time and if you are called as you are without any time to prep other than vest and helmet, it is more than likely something happening to an American. He said when he was over there in 05 his Lt went out in PT's (Luietenent (sp) and the uniform they do physican training in)

  • LOL that's too funny. The lesson here is to always at least wear PT's when sleeping at a firebase or patrol base.

  • That is awesome! Too bad he was hidden behind something. The enemy would have probably started laughing and then become flat footed.
