Parnormal challenge between commanders as All Hallow’s Eve quickly approaches?

Col. Samuel “Bo” Mahaney
452 AMW commander

Mahaney
“The ghosts of Air Force past are getting restless as All Hallow’s Eve approaches. While those of us who work in the Arnold House have become accustomed to a certain level of strange and unexplainable happenings, a recent experience left me quite puzzled. While working alone in the Arnold House on a Saturday morning, I noticed that a newspaper had fallen to the floor from one of the front office desks. Having placed two papers on that desk just moments before, I felt the occurrence could be easily explained by the top paper slipping off the slick plastic wrap of the bottom paper. Even so, I laughed and said out loud to the ghost that allegedly haunts the house, “Hap, I don’t believe you did that, but if you did let me see you knock the bottom paper off the desk.” I then went about my business. On two occasions during the morning I passed through the front office to see the second paper firmly in place eight inches from the edge of the desk, right where it had been all morning. At about noon, I walked past the desk to find the second paper on the floor lying next to the first. There was no one else with me in the building during that entire morning – or was there? Perhaps it was a ghost of Air Force past trying to put one over on me. I am certain there is a perfectly logical explanation. Even so, things are getting spooky. It must be time for Halloween!”
