U.S. defense chief lauds soldier in pink boxers

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Thursday praised an Army soldier in eastern Afghanistan who drew media attention this month after rushing to defend his post from attack while wearing pink boxer shorts and flip-flops.

In fact, Gates said he wants to meet the soldier and shake his hand the next time he visits Afghanistan.

"Any soldier who goes into battle against the Taliban in pink boxers and flip-flops has a special kind of courage," Gates said in remarks prepared for a speech in New York.

"I can only wonder about the impact on the Taliban. Just imagine seeing that: a guy in pink boxers and flip-flops has you in his cross-hairs. What an incredible innovation in psychological warfare," he said.

Army Specialist Zachary Boyd, 19, of Fort Worth, Texas, rushed from his sleeping quarters on May 11 to join fellow platoon members at a base in Afghanistan's Kunar Province after the unit came under fire from Taliban positions.

A news photographer was on hand to record the image of Boyd standing at a makeshift rampart in helmet, body armor, red T-shirt and boxers emblazoned with the message: "I love NY."

When the image wound up on the front page of the New York Times, Boyd told his parents he might lose his job if President Barack Obama saw him out of uniform.

"I can assure you that Specialist Boyd's job is very safe indeed," Gates said in the speech.

The U.S. defense chief was scheduled to deliver the speech at New York's annual Salute to Freedom dinner in Manhattan.

:D

Obviously he washed his boxers with the red t-shirt and the t-shirt bled in the wash. I am sure there is no other way these boxers were pink, right?

Does it really matter? It's just a humorous story.

I couldn’t give a shit if he’s on YouPorn blowing farm animals.
When they sounded the alarm he grabbed his Kevlar, rifle and was ready to fight to the death to defend his post and brothers. THAT’S a ****ing soldier!

Pink is the color of warriors in Vietnam. Don't knock it. Fierce fighters they are.

Besides, in the interview I saw of his mother she said the “I Heart NY” boxers is a kind of flipping of the bird at the Taliban. :thumb:

You have it right. It does not matter what they do as long as they can do their job. This still reminds me of that scene from Brain Candy by the Kids in the Hall where the Sergent tells Wally "You go over there and **** 'em. We'll stay here and masturbate. Go, go, go!" as they watch a suad of dudes showering.
