We lived at Fort Hood for a year in McNair village, which I was told was one of the oldest housing areas on post. I am convinced there was another family living there too!
I never saw anything more than vague shadows in the hall…nothing to really freak me out. However I always had the feeling I was being watched in the hallway, and there was one room that had a weird feel to it.
What really convinced me though, was the recurring dreams I had of another family living in my house. They were very vivid! In these dreams I would be able to interact with the other family, and no one else believed they were there.
There was a soldier who was a middle aged man who would sit in an old bentwood rocking chair by the back door, and I think he was who I felt in the hall and stairs. Then there was his wife, pretty but plain middle aged woman, and I think I was feeling her in the room that had the odd feel. There was a little girl, all golden brown curls and giggles, in a white dress. I want to say she was maybe 3 years old, and she had a white Maltese type dog who would come to the bed where I would be sitting, and beg to climb up for attention.
I had these dreams so often, and so vividly, that I came to naturally think of the house as being shared by that family and mine.
There wasn’t anything I found negative about this, other than the creepy feeling of being watched. I would turn off all the lights to go upstairs to bed, and find myself so uneasy I would run up the last few stairs and into my bedroom. It would be interesting to have a history of who lived there, and see if i could find my “room mate” family!

Was starting to do research for a bit of fanfic I was writing (the charactor is going to be in Ft Drum and Benning) and am shocked, surprised, you name it for the number of military bases that are haunted. I was stationed at the Watervliet Arsenal in Watervliet, NY and that place has its share of ghosts too. What surprised me the most were the stories at one site about Fort Benning, page and page of stories,mostly from the housing areas but also the barricks too.
