While stationed on Ft. Riley as an M.P. between the years of 1992 to 1996 I was witness to numerous strange goings on mainly on the old post. One of the main things that always happened on the Midnight shift was that during stormy nights the Museum alarms would sound, and the front door would be open. We would have to call the POC to come and reset the alarm, and this would take an hour or two as they lived in JC, plus they are civilians. While waiting we would have to clear the building. This also would take about an hour. The first thing you would see is the old soldier with rifle as you enter. It would scare the crap out of you. Once the building was cleared and nothing found, the civilian would reset the alarm and clear for the night until the alarm would sound again, usually in an hour. Having done some research of the museum, it was told to me by the then-curator that during the cholera epidemic that the ground was frozen solid, so they had to bury the dead under the museum which was once a hospital.
Next at the outdoor chapel which sits off First Division Road there is an old pet cemetery back in the woods to the west of the actually monument. On dead nights you can go up to the area and see strange things moving in the area.
In the days of the Function site while it was still there before it was closed and demolished there was an old theater on the site when it was an old prison according to the older guys that were there when I got there. They told a story of a female nurse during a riot in the old prison was chased by some prisoners and killed at that door to the theater. When the prison was still there you could go to the door, and if there was dew on the door you could still see her hand prints on the door.
Up on Trooper on Ernie Pyle Road we would sit and run radar at night with our head lights facing the guard rails with our headlights off and our markers lights on. Two times this happened at the same time around 0200; the reflectors on the guard rail would disappear and reappear as if someone was walking down the road. The shape of something dark could be seen as it headed south on trooper.
Huebner and Williston Point Road the first curve coming from Huebner. If you walk back from that curve, there is an old range that is over grown with weeds. This is the area supposedly where the soldier shoot the NCO. So while on midnight shift, me and another patrol were sitting on Williston Point Road, one facing east one facing west. As we looked down the road, we observed to be a glowing figure standing near the road. As we set there with only the marker lights on, the figure was getting bigger as it was moving towards us. I asked the other patrol to turn around and see if he saw what I saw, and he acknowledged that he did. The figure seemed to be walking up the road and coming closer. It looked to be floating. I turned to the other patrol, and he looked at me, and I said again ''do you see what I see?'' And he said ''yes. '' We turned on all the lights and overheads and bugged out the opposite way. As I looked in the rearview mirror, the image shot into the air and disappeared.
If you want to know about the weird things that go on on Ft Riley ask an M. P they work the night shifts. I know a lot of other things I have seen, but I would be typing for a while.
Lastly, I do agree that a lot of the hauntings are of old soldiers that did not want to leave. I myself Love Ft. Riley, and the history of the old post. Maybe I would go back and haunt it also as in all my travels with the U.S Army, it was my favorite Post.
