Guantanamo Bay Ghost

Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Marine Observation PostThis story comes from my younger brother who was stationed at Guantanamo Bay a few years ago.

“Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, or GTMO, is full of ghost stories. There are stories of refugees losing their lives crossing the mine fields and stories of soldiers who never left their posts. I didn’t think much of the tales until I experienced something strange one night.

I was in a Marine Observation Post, or MOP as we called them. It was MOP #13 (pictured right). Anyway, in this post you had to climb up a long stretch of stairs and enter through a hatch in the floor. This was a popular post because it was impossible for senior Marines to sneak up on you and catch you doing something stupid. This post was really remote and near the mine fields. It was always very dark and required night vision goggles to see anything beyond five feet.

One night, around nine p.m. or so, I was in MOP #13 looking into the darkness when I heard footsteps coming up the metal stairs. I remember thinking how weird it was because I didn’t hear or see my staff sergeant’s vehicle pull up. I just figured he was trying to be sneaky and catch me sleeping. Anyway, I clearly heard the foot steps and a knock on the hatch signaling me to open the door. However, when I opened the hatch nobody was there. Needless to say, I was freaked out. I guess it could have been a dream, but I’m not sure. If it was, it was the most vivid dream I’ve ever had.”

  1. My son is there right now.. He told his father about what is going on. He didn’t want me to know.. One marine got his nose broke.. true .. My husband won’t tell me anything else. I just pray for him and all the Military that has to deal with those spirits. Sad but true.

    • I know this was asked in 2013 but I’m the guy thy told this story and thought I’d chime in on this. The barracks never had any encounters that I’m aware of.

  2. The ghosts guards from battle of Cuzco Wells. We saw them on the FLIR one night near Camp America. In the old guard tower where the Haitian refugees were kept.

  3. We had a Cav Sgt go home on leave. The morning after he left he was seen sleeping in his bed. Later that day when his room mates asked if anyone had seen him they were told, no, he’s on his way home. His bed was supposed to be empty. He was on his way home.

  4. When I was there I was on MOP 37 and heard a loud bang and something running down the stairs but saw nothing. Scared me enough to go condition 1 ha.
