This is a story I was told as I was walking into a fellow Soldier's home a couple of weeks ago.
As I was walking into the home of my friend, I was stopped at the door by another friend of mine for a "briefing" before entry.
"You have to know this before you come in, man."
I was kind of concerned as there has been some turmoil on Army posts' this last month. He told me that this home was haunted and not to speak a word of it inside.
My friends moved in a few months ago and strange happenings followed like things missing, movements out of the corner of their eyes, cuts, doors slamming and flying open. He called his mother to tell her about what was going on and things from there got worse.
He saw a figure moving across the room as he watched TV. He got up to see if his wife needed help and saw, in the kitchen, a woman with a red dress. He went to the drawer that held the silverware to see the drawer was empty and the dish holder was also bare. He was uneasy and went upstairs to check on his wife who was standing against the wall in their bedroom. She told him there was a man in ACUs in their bedroom that she thought was him and when she tried to embrace him he was gone.
He opened the door to the spare bedroom where he keeps his weapon and all the other doors in the home flew open and just as quickly slammed shut. He turned around to see a dark figure (as you would perceive a human in the dark) move into his infant son's bedroom and went after it. The bedroom door wouldn't open when he attempted to open it, so he kicked it in to see the figure coming from the baby's crib toward him and left the room. When he got to his son, he had a cut from his ear to the corner of his mouth.
He then called another Soldier in our company who is an American Indian that practices (I'm not sure what to call it) spiritual cleansing. Upon his arrival he felt the presence of evil unrest. He went through the house with sage and oak leaves while praying and hanging pictures of Christ. When he completed this he returned to them outside and told them that there was evil unrest in their home and the woman of the home wanted harm done to them but the father and children were at peace.
A little over a week later the housing office released information to them stating that the family that lived there before were murdered by the father after he came home from deployment after discovering that his wife was unfaithful and the children were calling the boyfriend "Daddy". He took them into the kitchen, shot them, and killed himself.
