...The night after hearing the laugh, Painter and Jackson were back in the tower - weary and a little jumpy. A few hours into the shift, the "ghost'' was back.

Both paratroopers said they could feel something moving behind them, and every once in a while it sounded like someone stepped on the trap door leading to the tower's middle level. The temperature in the tower dropped a few degrees, they said. Both men said they were huddled in the corner next to the radio.

"Are you movin'?'' Painter would ask when he heard something.

"No. You?'' Jackson would reply.

Then another tower called. The soldiers there said they were detecting a 3-foot-tall "form'' walking around the bottom of the tower that Jackson and Painter were in. The soldiers told Painter and Jackson that it looked like it was waving.

Reluctantly, Jackson said, he went to investigate.

"I walked around the whole balcony and didn't see anything,'' he said. [continued]

I ain't 'fraid of no ghost!
I've seen enough odd things{that shouldn't autta been there} to make this tale believable. It dosen't mean I believe in spirts that roam the earth, just that there are some things you can't explain. Things that raise the little hairs on the back of your neck.

I'll put my money on this being exactly what the two guys are sure it wasn't: a prank by the fellow marines.

The rumor of a ghost was already in place to set them up. The laugh that "No grown man could have made..." came over the radio. The infrared "image" was reported to them from another tower, they didn't see it.

The sounds were probably lucky odd noises made by the tower itself, that fit accidently with the prank. The "feeling" of a presence is just the result of them being spooked to begin with.
