Solitary Confinement

  • Sqdn. Ldr. Bob Ankerson
  • Interview by: Ewan Burnett


For the vast majority of my time in captivity,

it was solitary confinement was the challenge.

And certainly for a good three weeks of my imprisonment,

contact with anyone else was limited to

probably three times a day when a guard

would open the access hatch in the solid steel door.

Just look in in the morning.

Around middle of the day, there'd be some food and water.

A piece of pita bread and some water being handed in

with no real communication.

And then towards the end of the day,

just before it got dark,

again the hatch would open and a guard would look in,

and again, no communication.

So that was interesting.
