While I was at Fort Sill, we were staying at the old MP barracks, which was built on top of the hospital where Geronimo died.Yeah, neat story and all.
But while I was on fire gaurd during the nights, I would always see some thing out of the corner of my eye. I would check it out, and find no one
there, after several nights of this I mentioned it to the NCOs. Well it seems there is more to the story, evidently every one who is on night fire
gaurd sees this shadowy movement.
Also there is an attic, which is chained shut, and paddlelocked. Not just any ole chain and lock, heavy duty stuff is used, and when I aks the NCOs
about this locked door, they don't talk about it. Seems old relics are stored up there, rumors of the hospital beds and other articles have been
Nothing is confirmed, but that is the word. Oddly enough though, as uncomfortable I was at the CQ desk, being in the basement, alone at night on the
days I wasn't working, didn't bother me a bit.
Strange but it was almost calming being there. others felt the same way, perhaps it was just being away from the CQ desk.
That was some thing I had to share after reading this thread.
In October 1894, Geronimo and 341 Apache prisoners of war went to Fort Sill. They built their own homes at the fort. They grew vegetables and
flowers. Many Apaches lived there till they died. Some of them even joined the United States Army. In 1905 Geronimo rode in Theodore Roosevelt's
parade. Roosevelt had been elected President of the United States. On February 17, 1909, Geronimo grew very ill. He died of pneumonia. He was 83 years
old. He was never able to return home to Arizona. Geronimo was buried in the cemetery at Fort Sill.
