Soldiers Worldwide Strip In Support of Prince Harry (Slightly NSFW)
By now you've been exposed, over and over, to the naked Vegas-capades of Britain's Prince Harry. Apparently what happens there no longer stays there, thanks to social media. Many of us have shared, had our snicker, and have shaken our heads over the whole thing.
Whether in or out of battle, however, it is the credo of many a military man (and woman) to stand by their fellow soldier, especially in times of personal crisis. Those that are willing to bleed for each other, are there when they need one another. Personal experience has told me that this credo extends even into the most embarrassing of times.
So what's a soldier to do, in this time of social over-sharing, to show their hands-down support for their clothes-fallen comrade? By taking their own (almost) naked photos and sharing them! Facebook has been commissioned into the battle, via a new group called Support Prince Harry with a Naked Salute which anyone can join to help uphold the naked honor of the royal who has placed himself in harm's way again and again for the country he loves.
Since its inception, the group has swelled (no pun intended) to over 25,000 members, filled not only with narrowly inappropriate photos of men and women both in and out of the military, but also with an ongoing flow of encouraging words of support.
Soldiers from Israel (photo at the top of the story) to Australia, Germany, Brazil, Korea and all over have taken to the group and shared what it means to be a military member.
If the call to go commando hits you too, I'd suggest using Instagram's Pop Rocket filter. It has a certain warm glow about it, and hides the wrinkles well.
