Fairchild AFB Military Security Man Sees Black Figure

From the Vike Factor archives (Brian Vike)

I was reading your articles on "Visitors" at AF Bases. I was stationed at Fairchild AFB in Spokane, WA. I was one of many Security Policemen assigned there. Yea, a "Ramp Rat" only I know we were the best of the bunch (LOL) Anyway, we also had a visitor, however we attributed it to a "Lost Soul" I know because I've seen it twice. I had been on site for roughly three weeks, and I was working in the Nuclear Storage Area on "Bravo 4" a two man patrol. At about 1:30 a.m. I could swear I saw someone running at our vehicle. It was nothing from the ordinary, we would have "area exercises" from time to time with a "Security Team Member" playing the roll of a "enemy combatant”

I saw this and reported the event to my team leader Sgt. Jim. I reported what I was seeing to the area tower. I was new and I had never seen nor heard of these events at all. Jim was convinced I was really seeing what I was reporting to him, and in my subsequent radio conversations, so were others.

They responded the entire area of Security Policemen to our location, including turning on all the area lighting, in an effort to assist us in finding this individual. We never did, and we search everything and everywhere for the next two hours. I was kidded about what I saw, but I was never doubted. I was told it was the base "Goat Man" or the resident ghost, and many have seen it before and since I did.

Sure, Gladly

I was with the 92nd SPS from June 1985 through July 1987. Our visitor who was called the "Goat Man" was quite a ghost. The Nuclear Storage area has several sensors outside the secure fence, just inside the 30' clear zone. On a few occasions I was in the Tower with the Tower Operator.

The sensors started to activate in an "Entry" Pattern. When they do that a camera activates and shows a B and W picture of the area, when the camera activated, we (There were 3 of us in the Tower at the time) saw a black figure starting to climb the fence. My team member and I hauled ass from the tower and raced to the area.

A Nuclear Storage Area or (Weapons Storage Area) "WSA" as we called it because we could not officially say "nukes is a big patch of land, normally with a Conventional Storage Area or CSA located right next to it. As we got to the intrusion area, the tower operator immediately notified us that he received an "Exit" activation in a direct line from the entry point. Right straight across the entire WSA.

I saw the thing, as it started to climb the fence. I swear it turned and looked right at us, not just the camera, but right at us. It was always a running joke with us, "The Goat Man, but those who have seen it, or been around someone who has seen it knows better. Needless to say this thing scared the hell out of me. The first time I saw it, it was raining, and I was on a Midnight Shift. Jim and I were parked next to a "Nuke Structure Barn Door.

Our vehicle was parked as close to the door as we could be, my side (The Passenger Side) was just inches from the door so I could not exit the vehicle. If you can imagine that. And to see this thing between two bunkers, inside the WSA running towards me, I was scared and I,m sure it showed, because like I said they activated every light in the area, calling all team members out to conduct a search.

If Jim was not there right beside me when I saw it, I don,t think anyone would have thought too much of it. But when he told CSC, I was new and this was my first night in the area. They made sure there were no exercises being conducted, and then called for radio silence while the entire fire team searched the area. Grid pattern; top to bottom, and side to side, it took the better part of two hours to do too.

Thank you to the person for the report. I would like to ask all service men and woman from the past to the present if they have encountered anything like this, or have been witnessed to an object over or around a base that they please contact me.
