I absolutely have had paranormal experiences at Ft. Knox!!!
I was attending Marine Tanker school there in 2009. The 3 story barracks we stayed in was sandwiched between two Army recruit barracks'. When I
arrived, paranormal experiences and thoughts were the furthest thing from my mind.
I stayed in a receiving platoon for about a month until the new classes picked up in the training schedule. I was the most senior junior Marine in my
platoon (if that makes sense to some of you civvies out there) so the sergeants made me the guide. The Guide billet means you are responsible for the
daily schedule and making sure the platoon arrived where it needed to be on time.
Our class was picking up in a week when I first heard about the 3rd floor being haunted. Having had 2 verynparanormal experiences before in my life,
I tend to be open minded when I hear stories like this. My buddy from Columbus, Ohio who I will refer to as king edward (upon his request), was a
squad leader in my platoon has tons on ghost hunting experience and ghost stories for days. However, at this time, I was more concerned with being
able to handle the guide position as it was my first time actually being in charge of a crew, let alone 16 rowdy Marines every day.
One Saturday night I was broke from partying too much on Friday, so I stayed in. I had to opt for my left at 2am instead of going to Trixies Gold
Room, if you know what I mean, so I headed to the empty bathroom. While I was in the process of *uhem* in a locked stall, the bathroom door opened and
I heard the flip flop of shower shoes, go to the urinals around the corner. I had stopped, as it was awkward, and waited until this guy was done so I
could continue. Only I couldn't, because the urinal never flushed and the flip flop or shuffle of shower shoes never went back out of the bathroom.
I left the stall, looked around the corner, and all I saw were urinals and a brick wall. I ran out of the bathroom immediately, scared ****less.
As I time progressed, classes graduated and we moved up to senior platoon. This put my 3 squad leaders and I in the Guide's room at the far end of
the 3rd floor hall, across from the platoon sergeant's office and the closest proximity you could get to living near the locked rooms at the end of
the hall. I had always ignored these rooms.
There must always be a firewatch on duty in the barracks. One weekend, I had firewatch at 1am. My phone alarm sounded, I got ready, and left my room
into the hall to relief another Marine of his post. This was a BIG dude from Texas and he wasn't scared of anything.
I saw him standing at the opposite end of the hall facing my at the position of attention. At my end of the hall, there is a red light bulb, at
his end, green. When I got closer, I saw he looked horrified and asked why, but before I could finish asking, the door in an empty room on my right
slammed just before I walked past it. He wouldn't walk past that door, instead, he walked down to the first floor, all the way to the other stairs,
and back up, just to get to his room.
I thought some of the guys were screwing with me, but I also had a feeling that going into the room was a bad idea. Now mind you, the A/C in the
barracks was broken and it is the middle of July in Kentucky. It was HOT.
The moment I stepped into that room, it was like I walked into a meat locker. The light wouldn't turn on. I walked up to the open wall locker on the
right and the doors slammed shut and the handles closed down as if someone had forcefully closed it.
I have seen apparitions on atleast five different occasions, and three of those times kingedward saw the SAME thing as me.
This is only my first or 2nd post so I reach 20 I will post tell my afghanistan paranormal encounters, which were plenty.
