They look more comfortable than me in my tent the first time I went camping this last spring. I slept on an incline.

They call these fighting holes "ranger graves". Not because they are Rangers, but because these are the kind of combat graves a man would have been buried in during combat if extraction of the body was unable to be provided. Not to deep, but deep enough to protect the body for when they come back for it. Morbid, but true. Semper Fi.

The VC dug tunnel complexes to avoid shelling and to hide in while villages were being searched.

Digging a hole is something everyone does in war. The guys who don't, die.

they're called "ranger graves".
you dig a coffin-sized hole and you sleep in it to minimize injuries from artillery attacks and explosions.
