Maybe from boot camp or basic training, maybe from a time out in the field, maybe even in the barracks. What's the military horror story that you can never forget?

OC duty (Sidewinder Team) at the NTC. Late Halloween night in the box during Force on Force IVO Brown Pass. One of our Platoon OCs was seriously troubled by the thought of ghosts and demons. This particular OC was tasked to get his NVGs on and get in front of the BLUFOR by going around and ahead of them on Alpine Pass. However.....another OC had already gone ahead on that one lane trail, got on top of a big rock in the bend of a corner, striped naked and poured chem light juice all over his body. It took half the night to chase "the victim" down and convince him that he hadn't really seen God.

In the spirit of Halloween…
Middle of the night my teammate, Ken, and I were stringing electronic cabling underneath the Auxiliary Launch Control Support Building at 01-Alpha and 01-Bravo Minuteman ICBM Launch Control Facilities. This was in preparation for E&B (equalization and balance) electronic tests between launch control facilities and the launch facilities (silos) at Vandenberg AFB. I’m under the suspended floor laying on a cable rack with perhaps 14” of clearance above me. All I had was a droplight and flashlight. While Ken, my teammate, was fishing a cable down through the tray I looked over and saw two little beady red eyes looking at me perhaps 18” from my face.

In a very low voice I said, "Ken."

What?

There's a rat down here big as a football.

He laughed and asked, "Does he have a name?"

I dunno, but if he comes any closer I'm going to shit my pants, then I'm going to die, then I'm going to come back and haunt you.

Thankfully, the rat scampered off to wherever rats scamper off too and Ken finally stopped laughing.
