Crazy shit happens sometimes.
Around 1990, I was with 10th Mountian Division at Ft Drum New York.
During a field exercise, we were brought in to a remote area of the post by helicopter (a UH-60).
At night when everyone sleeps there is always a "roving" guard that has the dual duty of keeping in touch with unit headquarters.
This particular night it was overcast and pretty dark.
The guy on roving patrol woke me up (I was the platoon sergeant) and said "there is something out here Sarge"

Here is how the conversation went :
(Me) what is out here
(Soldier) I don't know but it keeps following me
(Me) ok, just keep your eye out and let me know if you see anything
I roll over on the ground and try and go back to sleep.
Not 20 minutes later, all I hear is "Aaaaaaaaaaa"
as the roving guard ran past me.
It took me 5 minutes catch the fucker !
Dude was scared as all get out.
Claimed it struck and bit him !
Then I saw it ! The CREATURE !
Turned out that the radio hand microphone was one of the long curled cord type. The Mic had slipped off and was dragging on the ground behind the guard as he walked (something is following me)
The hand Mic snagged on a root, stretched the cord and them snapped loose hitting the guard in the ass.
This was the "Aaaaaaaaaaa".
Boy we still laugh about that to this day !!!!!!!!

Sorry for the wall of text.....
