     5. (Mil.) A fortified position dug into the ground,
        especially one which is closed on top and has protective
        walls and roof, e. g. of reinforced concrete. For
        defending positions it usually has windows to view the
        surrounding terrain, but as a safe location for planning
        operations or storage, a bunker may be completely
        underground with no direct access to the surface.
