    A slightly different question is, does he want to be recognised as the marine who wears pink boxers. My guess is no.

    When you gotta roll, you gotta roll...I'm thinkin' it's a dang good thing he at least had his shorts on...otherwise the Taliban would have thought they were tangling with a re-incarnated Spartan and I doubt the photo would have made it into the media :lol:

    I was thinking the same thing but I couldn't come up with a quite so forum friendly way of saying it.

    For some reason that reminds of my our last night in Iraq. In the middle of the night we came under a rocket attack, after it was over everyone came running out of the tents in boxer shorts, flip flops, Kevlar and body armor to make sure everyone was okay. It really was a sight to see! :lol:

    Heh. First of all, he'll be recognized as a Marine. Once that fact is established...I don't think anybody will question further. Marines are Marines, tough mofo's no matter what color their skivvies!

    Those aren't pink hearts - those are red kill markings!

    Y'know, you could have bluffed the Talibs by saying that the guy was actually a girl, and that even girl soldiers could kick their ass all the way to Jehannum...

    *Jehannum = Arabic for Hell

    Why he was only doing his job as a soldier? This is not a Hollywood Jean-Claude Van Damme movie.
