Other Memories
During the Interrogation Phase of Prisoner Camp, we were placed in a wooden box, about three feet by two feet by two feet, one "prisoner" adjacent to me was having problems getting into the "box", due to claustrophobia. I took the opportunity to turn my body around in the small place. when the guard opened the other end, he saw my rear end instead of my head, which he expected to see, and ordered me to get out. Then he made the box about 18" tall, then ordered me back in. "See if you can turn around now, smarta..!" he barked. I couldn't, but I had fun with it.
