    was that at random times throughout the deployment, some fucking asshat would BANG on my CHU door and run away. It always happened in the fucking middle of the night (or day, depending on my mission schedule) ALWAYS when I was sound asleep. I'd jump out of the sack and open the door and see nobody. It got to the point where if our mission tempo hadn't been so chaotic I would have started sleeping outside JUST to catch the motherfucker in the act. It was always exactly the same: Three loud knocks BANG BANG BANG on the door.

    fast forward to now... I am still getting woke up in the middle of the fucking night with the exact same three loud knocks on the door. It sounds exactly the same... and I live out in the middle of nowhere, halfway up a mountain. Nobody is here but me and the deer. :nuts:

    THis departure into the world of the mentally insane has been brought to you by the number three. One... hahaha... Two... hahaha... Three! hahaha...

    I only get one loud knock and I always just assumed it was the damn teenagers in the house. Nice to know it is probably just the deer (or ghost of deer past).

    at least I think it's the deer since that is the only commonality

    noises? :run:

    I've been hearing C-RAMs in my sleep since Jan 2007. Makes my heart start pounding every time.:wtc:

    We were standing out in the middle of the FP compound one night and got to witness a C-RAM take out a mortar right over us. Some kid had been hitting the housing area right next to the compound with frightening regularity and that night we just happened to see one get taken out... The sound stuck with me.

    Is that the Phalanx? I got to see a few minutes of the start of a concert at Camp Liberty. A few minutes before the concert got started, the phalanx on top of the hill behind the stage went off. It sounded like somebody was ripping the fucking world apart! I wasn't the only one that hit the dirt. That's a truly rude fucking noise. :o

    One and the same. They went off several times a day, daily for months. It definitely does sound like it is ripping the world apart.:o

    Is it possible that there never was anybody knocking? Maybe it was in your head all the time. Did anyone else ever notice it?

    Don't worry, I'm not sticking it in your ear. It's just a woodpecker pecking at your wall :hsugh:

    Yeah. It's kind of like one of those movies where right at the end of the movie something happens that changes everything. This is one of those things. I always thought my roommate was just a lazy dirtbag for not getting up to see who was at the door. Now I think he didn't wake up and open the door because nobody was there.

    "I hear dead people..." :uh:
