We know every base has it’s own lore and horror stories. We asked you to share any horror stories have you heard and did a little googling of our own! Here are some of our favorite ghost stories from different bases!

Pearl Harbor Poltergeists:
We are stationed in Pearl Harbor but live in Pearl City Peninsula which is off post housing 10 miles from base. We relocated here in Feb. 2012. We live in a home that was built in the 70’s with a couple upgrades I guess.
I never researched this island before we moved here so I didn’t know too much. 6 days into our move in house, one night I was upstairs, hubby downstairs and baby in bed. I was at the top of the stairs about to come down and, well, I came down quicker then expected.
I fell all the way down the stairs, like 12 steps. I told my hubby ” I’m ok, but it felt like someone shoved me”. We brushed it off thinking I just tripped.
After that once a week for months I was waking up and finding at least one of our pictures on the floor broken. I’ve had to replace so many frames!
My husband has seen items flying off the counters when he’s alone ( he’s never been a believer but is now).
There’s so much going on in the house that I’m totally used to it now. It doesn’t scare me. anymore.
Ghosts of American History at Fort Riley:
There were many accounts where soldiers were out on Indian raids and the women and children that were left behind were hit with flu epidemics. They said the first flu symptoms would show up by noon… and by dinner time nearly the whole post was dead.
Because these souls were waiting for their loved ones return, legend says they have not been put to rest. “
Put it on your adventure list! the Historical and Archeological Society of Fort Riley host yearly ghost tours.
The Silent Staring Soldier at Fort Lewis:
I woke up in the middle of the night and a soldier in full uniform was standing at the foot of the bed looking at me . I started screaming and my husband woke up, saw the same thing I did and charged at it.
The ghost moved back and stopped in the doorway, and my husband went to punch him and punched through the apparition and it disappeared.
