Blessed are the boxers for wounded troops

July 20, 2008


— Blessed are the boxer shorts.

Members of the St. James United Church of Christ in Casco Township plan to take 150 boxer shorts to the altar today for a blessing. The shorts have been modified for wounded veterans who wear bulky prosthetics or braces on their legs.

About 15 women at St. James replaced the shorts' side seams with a fabric fastener for easy access.

Volunteer Kris Dombrowski says: "If you have the need for special pants, you have the need for special boxer shorts."

The boxers will go to an Ohio distribution center of Sew Much Comfort, a national volunteer group that adapts clothing for wounded troops.
