Wow, that is a very good story. I really enjoyed it and it was a little scary too. My dad did his airborne training at Fort Bragg. Can you get more info on the house and its former occupants? Good story..

Every time I read a story about a ghost and a horrible smell, it takes me back to a house that I used to live in.
Possums, squirrels, and all other kinds of small furry things would crawl either under our house or in our walls and die. That is not a smell you forget, and finding the source can be a b****. The smells can migrate and turn up in places far from the source. We never found the source of quite a few of them, and we had to wait it out.
I'm not saying there isn't something paranormal going on, but I go by the law of parsimony. The simplest explanation is usually the correct one, and, at the very least, it needs to be completely ruled out before going any further.
Gah, I just realized what a buzzkill I can be. . .how depressing. . .
