Military begins issuing kevlar underwear

The headline:  Pentagon rushes underwear armor to Afghanistan

The link:  http://www.usatoday.com/news/military/2011-04-18-pentagon-armor-groin-protection.htm

The summary:  The military has begun issuing armored underwear to its troops in Afghanistan in an attempt to protect their lower bodies from the effects of an improvised explosive device.

The reaction:  I suppose the logic behind this makes sense but boy it sure sounds funny when you read it.

I’d hate to be the guy who had to test them out to see if they worked!
