How much you want to bet they are pink because they got washed with the shirt?
Notice that none of them are wearing Reg Issue Footwear? LOL
You put on what you can when you get attacked! lol
We had numerous occasions where Marines showed up during a mortar attack in their boxers and untied boots with body armor, helmet, and weapon. Always lots of fun.
I got wise before I went over. I did the fireman thing, boots on the floor with pants on around the boots, sleep in the socks and skivvies. Swing out feet in the boots, pull up trousers, grab body armor, helmet, and weapon, fall out to the security positions.
The only problem was you were never sure if there was a scorpion or some other nasty in the boot. Kind of like a much milder game of russian roulette. Made for good pranks though, mashed potatoes in the boots, sand, gravel. I laughed when the potatoes squished up and out the tops of my boots. Man what a mess! lol
