Sandy MacGregor – first ‘tunnel rat’ in Vietnam

This conversation with Vietnam veteran Sandy MacGregor.

Sandy was the first anti-communist soldier – out of all the Australian, American and other troops in Vietnam – to explore the underground tunnels used extensively by the Viet Cong.

Sandy returned to the podcast in the episode Panel – The Vietnam War.

    As one of Sandy McGregors original tunnel rats I can verify the fact that he was indeed the first Engineer in Vietnam to enter the tunnels and he always led from the front.
    It was his leadership that inspired his men to accomplish any task given them.
    To this day I am very proud of the fact that I was an original Tunnel Rat.

    Sandy, I have a special brand of respect for you Tunnel Rats. My now late friend was one of you and sadly, he suffered until he passed. Thank you all for keeping us safe
