This is partly based on my own experiences in the army (the parts about sitting for long hours in a tower and cursing the previous guard, not the containment breach obviously).

I rather like. Is this a pre-existing SCP, or one you made up for the tale? I can't remember anything with this particular effect.
Giving bearhugs to the unsuspecting since 1872.
Nice little slice-of-life piece. I like that it didn't end horribly for the guy. I know that things ending horribly for guys is kinda what this place does, but it's nice to have a change of pace once in a while.
Everything I can say has been said, but great job. You get an upvote from me.
I am curious, though; are you considering writing this SCP up for an article?
I'm considering it, though it might not be easy to avoid it just becoming another "thing what makes you go crazy/kill you". If anyone else wants to have a go at it, I wouldn't mind as long as they let me know.
Maybe if it didn't make you just go crazy, rather you ended up thinking that it was a "king" and trying to obey it, acting in a knightly manner in the process with the nightmare fuel coming from some object with an unknown agenda which can control minds, plus, the mix-ups between proper behavior for a knight vrs a foundation agent.
