These may very well be the only pair of Engineer Boots ever initiated into the Kingdom of Neptune (from a slimy Pollywog to trusted Shellback) after crossing the equator through a military ceremony known as Crossing the Line - the very last for the USS Peleliu before she is decommissioned.

They endured several hours in and around South Pacific ocean water, to include being submersed a couple of times in small boats filled with fluorescent green water during this time-honored tradition that dates back centuries.
