In the late 1930's and early 1940's, Clearwater Beach was home for not only the Coast Guard, but the Military Police Training Barracks. There Army MP's would train for deployment before being sent to points elsewhere during the big one, WWII. There have been some sightings of a young woman running down the beach while wearing an all-white dress. It is said that she was engaged to be married to a soldier who was later shipped overseas and met an unfortunate end. When he died in combat, she disappeared days later and was never seen again, in at least a conventional form. It is said that she is waiting for him to return to her.
