While stationed at Ft. Monroe in the early 1970s I met and married a fellow soldier. We both had multiple incidents of what could only be explained as supernatural events. One very late night while sitting in a car with my soon to be husband, in front of what was at that time the WAC (Woman Army Corp. ) Recreation Center, we noticed that the building had been totally dark for hours and it suddenly became totally lit, as if all the lights were turned on. We waited to see if we would recognize some of the girls as they left the building. We both thought that the girls had been watching TV without the lights, and now they were turning on the lights to gather their things to leave. Instead what we saw was a figure of a human come through the door, and it had a bright light all around it as if it was on fire. The entity stood for a second on the steps and then disappeared. Both my future husband and I were so surprised we could not speak for what seemed to be minutes. Finally, I ask him if he saw that, and he said yes he had!
The two of us had another incident about a week later in a building in Ft. Monroe that we called the ''Y''. It was a place where the male and female soldiers came in the evenings to watch TV, play pool, and relax together. We decided to arrive early so that we would have control over the television, and we could select that evening's TV programs. We were very proud of ourselves as we arrived before our friends, and we took our place on a sofa located in the television room. Not long after our arrival we noticed the door knob turning and the door opening. The door opened, but no one entered the room. Instead when the door opened a strong and very chilling gust of wind blew past us, and the door shut. Before we could gather our wits, the door knob turned and the door opened and the cold air disappeared as the door closed again.
My third encounter with the supernatural while stationed at Ft. Monroe happened a few weeks later when I was ask to join one of the post newspaper reporters in my capacity as an army still photographer. We went to investigate paranormal activity that was taking place at what was known as ''Quarter No. 1'', where the new post commander and his family had recently settled. This house dated back to the Civil War and was beautiful. Unfortunately, the wife of the commander and their young children were telling us of events that included items moving around the house on their own, unexplained broken dishes, and other activities that were not explainable. All these were upsetting the children.
I loved my experiences at Ft. Monroe and for ten years after leaving the post my husband who had experienced these events with me would bring them up in conversations with friends and family. He would insist that I tell the stories, and the fear was still so deep I would cry, living the events all over in my mind.
