Under constant mortar and artillery fire, the company command post has the war at the bunker door. The shortest distances that must be covered in the essential jobs of laying communications, bringing in needed supplies and treating the wounded must be covered on the run. When it's incoming, there's no time to think and barely enough time to duck. No home, no hole is more welcome than the inside of a Marine-made bunker.
