    I can't speak for todays troops or the special forces. But I got rid of my underwear two weeks after arriving in Vietnam. Because it wasn't pratical to wear. It bunched up and collected sweat. You can't carry extra clean ones with you cause that just adds to the weight and takes up space in your pack. In the field we would get a clean set of fatigues about once a week, sometimes longer. Underwear was just an unneeded nicity and in extremely hot climates it just makes you more uncomfortable. An extra pair of socks was more valuable and useful that underwear.

    Same here when I was in Gulf War I, we arrived as part of a rapid deployment contingency in late August of 1990 and went straight out into the desert. Not only did underwear get stale and crusty after a few days of wear'n em, but when you did get a chance to hand wash your clothes, washing skivvies was just extra, unneeded toil!

    After shaving their scrotum do they use the same razor for their face?

    They shave their ass instead of their face, gives a whole new mean to the term assbackwards.

    I wore a t-shirt most of the time over there....more bandage material if needed. In my case it was...a few times...

    Didn't wear the underpants....not worth the effort
