Boyd was home on leave last March, but his return flight was delayed in New York City. A buddy’s sister took him on a whirlwind tour and that’s when he bought the pink shorts, his mother said.
He no doubt selected pink boxers as a joke to share with his fellow soldiers, Sheree Boyd said.
"They like to have a good time," she explained about the soldiers, "to deal with the tension."
There has been plenty of that; just read the news. His mother said he has been in at least 200 firefights.
"They have something going on just about every day, and some times all day long," Sheree Boyd said. "As a mother, it really turns your stomach up."
