Former U.S. Marine Recalls BIGFOOT Encounters at Camp Lejeune, NC

A U.S. Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC recalled encounters with Bigfoot while performing training and night operations in the nearby field and woods.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"While I was in the Marine Corps, we would be stalked by these Bigfoot creatures at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. It didn’t matter how many of us were out there. We were armed with rifles and no ammo and or blanks during field ops. They would pick up whatever trash or snacks we would drop. We sometimes could see their eyes in the treeline and see random glimmers of shadows through our night optics. But, you can see outlines and or someone's figure. I mean like stuff that was used probably during the early 2000s and they were monocular.

We would hear knocks or rustling throughout our nights around Verona Loop training grounds or on Camp Lejeune. Many of us who spent time in the infantry spend about 45-60% of the year in the woods. You could hear them at night.

One night I was doing patrol ops in the woods/hills and we decided to take a pause. It was around 3 am and we were taking a nap break. It was during a wargame and I was on watch with one of my buddies. Holding security we saw an outline in the woods and meanwhile, we were sleep-deprived, not thinking we were seeing real things in the tree line till we talked to each other to confirm what we were seeing through our nods. Pebbles were being thrown at us and we were confused. Thinking we were about to be run up on by Opfor (Opposition Force). So we wake up our guys slowly thinking we’re about to be ambushed. Turns out we were being stalked. We decided to get into defensive positions and the rocks kept coming thinking we were being messed with by the advisors running around overwatching the wargame.

We checked on the radio if there were any nearby. None. None at all. So we thought it was Opfor. We opened up with blanks. But, as we opened up we saw a massive creature and another one about 25-30 meters away. The creatures knocked over a semi-thin tree and gave a deep growl. Something that would shake guys who were de-sensitized and not really scared by anything.

When daylight came we circled back to look and we found huge footprints. We were so confused and shaken. After that situation, we didn’t know how to explain what we saw or experienced. That night I became an actual believer I was always skeptical about Bigfoot or some creature being in the woods. It was about 5 years ago. To this day I struggle to go into the woods." K

WEREWOLVES: DO THEY EXIST? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Werewolves #Shapeshifters

What is a Werewolf? In European folklore, it is a human who turns into a wolf at night and devours animals, people, or corpses but returns to human form by day. It is said that some werewolves change shape at will; others, in whom the condition is hereditary or acquired by having been bitten by a werewolf, change shape involuntarily, and under the influence of a full moon.

In French folklore, the werewolf is called Loup-Garou. France was particularly afflicted with reports of them in the 16th century, and there were many notable convictions and executions of Loups-Garous.

The werewolf phenomenon may have a medical explanation. Take Peter the Wild Boy, for instance. In 1725, he was found wandering naked on all fours through a German forest. Many thought he was a werewolf or at least raised by wolves. Research has shown Peter likely had Pitt-Hopkins syndrome, a condition discovered in 1978 that causes a lack of speech, seizures, distinct facial features, difficulty breathing, and intellectual challenges.

Lycanthropy is a rare psychiatric condition that causes people to believe they’re changing into a wolf or another animal.

Throughout the centuries, people have used werewolves and other mythic beasts to explain the unexplained. In modern times, however, most believe werewolves are nothing more than pop culture horror icons, made famous thanks to Hollywood’s versions of the Wolf Man, portrayed by my namesake Lon Chaney, Jr. Still, werewolves have a cult following. Sightings are reported each year, as evidence of what I am presenting to you.

So, is the Werewolf more than just a legend? What are people reporting? Listen to these accounts and form your opinion.
