North Carolina’s Fort Bragg is one of the best-known military installations in the United States — in fact, it’s one of the few military installations that most people know by name. But most are familiar with Fort Bragg not because of its military operations but because of its dramatic (and gruesome) headlines. It often seems as though every time there’s a murder, shooting, or disaster, it happens at Fort Bragg.
Fort Bragg is famous for housing migrants amongst other things!
Fort Bragg is home to two of the most important formations in the Pentagon’s sprawling, complex special-operations bureaucracy: the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, or USASOC, which includes the Rangers and the Green Berets; and JSOC, the “black ops” component of the military. Cloaked in secrecy and sloshing with money, JSOC has operational control over the most elite commando units of each of the major service branches, including the Navy’s SEAL Team 6 and the Army’s Delta Force, which it uses to carry out the nation’s most politically risky, no-fail missions, like the killing of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the emir of the Islamic State, in 2019. Over the past 20 years of continuous war, from the snowy passes of the Hindu Kush to the desert scrublands of Somalia, JSOC’s budget and autonomy have continuously grown, and so has the scope of its mission. Based out of a high-security compound inside Fort Bragg, it has become a covert military within the military.
More than 10 percent of the active-duty Army is stationed at Fort Bragg.
But if you count all US Army, including guard and reserve, and I’m also counting the deaths of reservists assigned to Fort Bragg only 5% of the US army is stationed there!
And yet 20% of the murders come from this base!
113 soldiers assigned to Fort Bragg died between Jan 2020 and Jan 2022.
Only 4 of those deaths were in combat. All the rest took place stateside.
These are their names.
The main speculations online which are not confirmed are that mysterious deaths can come from a part of the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, the Psychological Warfare Center was an interesting and unique addition to Fort Bragg — though these psychological operations have since been moved from Fort Bragg to Fort Jackson. According to The Post and Courier, the center teaches “persuasion techniques,” which are meant to psychologically break down enemies. Often, soldiers are also taught psychological warfare so they can better resist it.
Psychological warfare is generally used to make an enemy feel hopeless and afraid. Ideally, psychological warfare can be used in a deterrent capacity. It can prevent actual confrontation, reducing those who would otherwise be injured, maimed, or killed. An example of psychological warfare might be propaganda dropped upon a city that made victory appear impossible. If the city gives up without a fight, neither side loses people.
The darker side of psychological warfare deals with direct mistreatment and torture tactics, such as not allowing a subject to sleep to make them easier to manipulate. Harassing fire is another element of psychological warfare — random, undirected fire meant to traumatize the other side and lower their morale.
We couldn’t find anything to support this theory!
According to Fox News, two infants died under mysterious circumstances in 2009 at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Now, sudden unexplained infant death is tragically not that unusual, but what makes these two cases particularly notable is that they occurred only three months apart and inside the same home. The two infants were from different families, too — the first family vacated the home shortly after their baby died, and then the second one moved in afterward.
After the 2009 deaths, 10 additional infant deaths at Fort Bragg, occurring between 2007 and 2011 came to light, prompting a widening of the investigation, which ultimately found no obvious cause. Now, no one is saying strange and secretive chemicals were definitely the cause of any of the deaths, but it does seem like a rather bizarre and terrifying coincidence.
There are dozens of unexplained cases that come from this military installation!
