Basic Training And The Accidental Pink Underwear
by Robert Chapin
March 1966, reported to Fort Dix for basic training. On weekend pass I wore a red bandanna with civvies.
It was my turn to wash white undergarments of three men I included red bandanna.
Underwear pink and me left handed I made mistakes drill sgt picked me out and motioned ordered me to approach podium. As a left hander demanded I drop my drawers - AND... I was wearing pink underwear.
