  1. I lived in D barracks on 2nd floor and top floor; I resided at Kemper for 3 yrs from 1996-1999. I never once saw anything haunted the entire time. Though I do know the stories. In fact the rope used by a girl who hung herself near the back soccer/football field is still hanging.

  2. Last month I went walking around the military school peaking in the doors and windows and walking around the paths. We saw some orbs in the building and when peaking into one door hole a white ghost or creature inside. I am planing on making youtube videos on my experiences there. I want to try to go and explore inside.

  3. Was there Fall 97 – December 2000. Saw some wild things the entity on closed floor I saw in 99 and the girl hanging was true . So we’re mess hall shootings all of which happened before I was there. -Old boy James Collins
