USS Edson Website


USS Edson was built by Bath Iron Works in Maine in 1958.  In 1959, she traveled through the Panama Canal where Long Beach, California would be called “home”. She is a veteran of the Vietnam War, being stationed in the Taiwan Strait and off the Vietnam Coast.  For her service, she received awards Armed Forces Commendation, Vietnam Service Ribbon among several others.  The ship was given the nickname “The Destroyer” and held the reputation as a top gun ship.   The USS Edson was decommissioned on December, 15, 1988 in Newport, Rhode Island.

Investigation Notes:

This was an open investigation hosted by Metro Paranormal Investigations as a para-unity investigation with 13 paranormal groups. Due to the amount of people, static devices were not possible and we were limited to only what we could carry. We were able to collect several audible voice phenomenon occurrences and many EVPS, one which told Joe to “Get out”, and responses with equipment that we brought on the investigation. Another group actually recorded a whistle evp (much like a ship style telephone) in the machine shop.

Evidence Review:
No static equipment could be used during this investigation. Audio recordings were once again our primarily source of evidence. Ir photos were inclusive of anything paranormal as proper baselines were impossible on this event. Several audible voice phenomenons were recorded with members hearing it at the time and responding. Spirit box recorded nothing out of the normal.

Due to similar experiences between several of the groups and audio documentation, it is safe to say there is something of the paranormal nature on board the USS Edson. Feelings of being followed, hearing whistling, audible voice phenomenon in several places onboard the ship and intelligent evp responses recorded and interaction with equipment are all signs that there is more that meets the eye.
