With all the talk in the news of potential tunnel warfare in Gaza, I thought it timely to post a picture of myself in the Cu Chi tunnels during a tour of Vietnam a couple of decades back.
These non-fortified tunnels were carved out the earth by the Viet Cong about 30 feet below the surface. The light you see was from a camera flash otherwise the tunnel was completely black. As a veteran of several night dives in the Indo-Pacific, I thought I could handle claustrophobia quite well, but I was never so glad to finally crawl to the exit and see daylight again!! Not my kind of warfare!!!
