Ghost Story: Honey, I'm alright!

by Jerod Blake Lasater

It was 3:30 in the morning. I lay awake in my bed with only the sound of the ceiling fan to keep me company. Ever since my husband enlisted, I've suffered from depression. I just wanted to have him next to me and for him to comfort me. "Jared Blane Lancaster, I hope you stay safe", I prayed. I closed my eyes and tried to go to sleep. Then it began.

I began to hear his voice. At first, I thought it was my imagination, but it grew more intense. I brushed it off and dozed off. I was awakened by a whisper in my ear. I sprung up and looked around and saw only darkness. I laid back down and went to sleep again. I then felt a strong sensation of great relief and comfort beginning to flow through my body. I got up and saw a bright, blinding white light. "What is that?". I asked myself. Then the figure of my husband began to appear. "JARED?" I shouted with astonishment. He sat down on the bed and put his hand around me.

"Catherine, I'm alright". I just stared at his glowing face.

"I'm sorry but I must leave you for a while".

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"I mean I won't be returning to this home".

I burst into tears of sadness and joy. "But don't worry Catherine, we will see each other one day". Then I began to sob as I watched his figure slowly fade away and I never will forget the smile. I went to sleep and awoke the next morning.

"It was only a dream" I told myself.

I was watching the morning news when I heard a knock on the door. I answered it and it was a man about sixty five years of age dressed in a black suit and tie holding an American flag in his hand. "Mrs. Lancaster?", he said with a sad look on his face. "Your husband, Jared and his team we're ambushed during a patrol and Jared was caught off guard and he was fatally wounded".

I fell to my knees and began to cry uncontrollably. It wasn't a dream at all. Jared had come to wish me his final farewell before he went to heaven. I looked into the blue sky and thought I could see his smiling face...

Sorry to say, great story but your facts are a little off. I'm currently Military, first Marines then Air Force and now Army. No one in black attire would ever come to visit with just a flag and especially in a black suit.

Depending on the branch it will be one enlisted usually NCO E-5 or higher and one officer 0-3 or above. They will be in their dress uniform of their respective branch and have documents for you, not a flag. You would only receive that once the soldier was laid to rest, you would receive the flag that accompanied him from the beginning of his trip to the end. Trust me I know this like the back of my hand. It's messed up that you would lie about this.

This must've been very sad for you! I would've cried my eyes out! The fact that he knew he was going to die and came to see you blows my mind! He must've been a good man!

I know how it feels to want somebody so bad right beside of you because my dad is currently serving in Afganistan.
