Bless the officer for his act of kindness and generosity.
It's a shame; most people don't understand that losing a few toes to frostbite is better than losing your life hanging on to a pair of boots.
( He probably gave the socks away to homeless kids too)

By 'hidden' he probably meant 'traded them for a few sips of Ripple'.

Actor George Hamilton reportedly never wore socks more than once. He'd wear them once and throw them away.

Reason being... Ole 'George' was noted to have NEVER , EVER,, trim his toenails.. So every time he would put on a pair he would rip holes in them. People who make SOCK PUPPETS loved him... lol..
