What type of under shorts do our services give to new recruits? In 1967 I was given cotton boxers. Still prefer them today. Hard to find them with snaps.

In '70 USN was selling us white cotton boxers. They never "issued" anything, every item was deducted from our pay. (Dang Peacoat was almost a months pay and I wore it three times in four years.)(6-8 months or pay deductions, iirc)
Them drawers came down almost to the knee and wadded up in the back door, actually they wadded up about every where with tight crackerjack trousers we had. Pleats and twists around the thigh and before the day was over they rode up to where everything was hanging out, or choked off. Hateful garment.
Ruins my day just to think about all that.

What tjm said X 2. Hated them thangs and burnt em upon graduation.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

Tighty whities... But ours were tan drab instead of white.

Army gave me some awful tan briefs, that was just a few years ago, first thing I did when I pcs’d from basic was buy some real underwear. Good grief those were terrible

Tan briefs or olive boxers.
Our Drill Sergeant was a ranger, he said if you were going to be a ranger to grab the brown briefs because in Ranger training you would be in the field like 20 something straight days. He said the brown briefs would blend in with the other brown stuff in your underwear.

I got white boxers. we weren't charged for anything in basic except haircuts and cigarettes. got a clothing allowance after basic. no more free fatigues etc. got new boots free every 6 months. got issued some cold weather gear after basic I had to return when discharged or pay for.


Ban private vehicles now. They are killing too much wildlife and too many children.

Raw wool. Of course if the fur market continues it's trajectory, could easily be coon!

That's what we got in 1995 as well. Never heard of anyone getting boxers.
