Years later, I found out from the Special Services girls who served in CuChi after I left, that the Command built a bunker in the backyard of the hootch. It was located right outside the back door and it was so big that the carpenters built benches along the wall so the girls wouldn’t have to sit on the dirt floor. When it was completed, the girls persuaded the communications guys to install a telephone with a cord long enough to reach into the bunker. Whenever they had mortar attacks, the girls called their in-country friends to give them a real-time description of the action. They also stocked their private bunker with beer, champagne and C-rations! Wish I’d thought of that.
