Marines Wearing Ballistic Underwear

Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan – U.S. Marines here are protecting their, um, assets with new, state-of-the-art ballistic underwear.

The undergarments, which are similar to spandex shorts, have a special material that helps protect their private parts from shrapnel and debris during a blast.

It sounds funny and there are many jokes that can be made about it – but the gear is a serious piece of equipment that can really make a difference for a wounded soldier or Marine.
