Pop By those at the base walker was well Respected A 31 year old senior navigator who by December 1943 Had just finished his tour of 30 Operations and as such was to become an Instructor on thursday the 16th of December Benteen was granted a 48-hour pass and Spoke to his friend before leaving Wishing him well for the day later when Benteen returned He saw walker as he made his way back to His nissan hut barracks Police to see him benting cried out hi Pop According to bentin’s account walker was About 35 feet away from him And after giving a sign of Acknowledgement made his way to his own Hut The next morning benteen was devastated To discover that walker had lost his Life On returning from a raid on berlin in Which he volunteered to help a new Bomber crew All on board perished what benteen had Seen the previous Evening was thus impossible unless his Beloved friend Had despite death found a way to return To base

To say good night to him one final time The uss hornet cv12 is a legendary ship An aircraft carrier launched in 1943 The hornet participated in attacks in The pacific theater Until being badly damaged by a typhoon And returning to the united states for Repairs After the war the carrier continued to Serve returning to the pacific for the Vietnam war Twice later the ship was even chosen to Recover the apollo 11 and apollo 12 Astronauts As they returned from the moon Eventually decommissioned in 1970 The hornet was opened to the public in 1998 as a museum in california And so the uss hornet’s legendary status Was preserved not merely as a highly Decorated aircraft carrier but also as Quite possibly the most haunted military Ship In the world in 27 years of active Service More than 300 people lost their lives Aboard The majority perished in combat with Others being lost due to horrendous Shipboard accidents For decades those who have served on the Ship and indeed those who have visited In the times since it has become a Museum

Have whispered that the dead remain on Board continuing their duties In spectral form a story of one such Ghostly encounter comes from a man named Dan brisker who claims to have been Aboard the hornet from 1965 Through march of 1969 according to his Testimony Shared to a webpage dedicated to the uss Hornet He came aboard as a machinist mate Striker but was soon assigned to number Three Fire room there the machinery was loud With those who served in such spaces Quickly becoming accustomed to the Constant noise Cold iron when the machinery was shut Down Was according to brisker the time that Was the strangest It was during this downtime when no Machinery is running that you hear all The squeaks Creaks bumps studs moans groans And assorted sounds in that space whilst The sounds may have been scary to an Outsider they were normal to brisker the Machinery space when shut down was Undeniably eerie with it being normal To occasionally have the feeling that You were being watched Hear muffled voices or even out of the Corner of your

Eye get a glimpse of someone walking to The back of the boiler Only to find no one there brisker knew It was all normal Regardless in order to make it through The watch it was often necessary for him To remind himself That it was just his mind playing tricks Even so there was one experience when Brisker had a cold iron watch in a Different fire room from his usual Domain that he could not Explain away according to his testimony Repairs were being made in number two Fire room and the space was in disarray With deck plates up and the boiler front Open and so he started his lonely watch Passing the time the best he was able a Little reading A little singing a dance move or two Anything to get through The watch eventually the hunger pain Started and brisker hurried to retrieve Some snacks he had stashed in his locker He was away for no more than five Minutes and when he returned he was Surprised to find That someone was working in the boiler Firebox sitting at the bottom of the Ladder eating his snacks He explained that he could hear them Inside of the firebox After about 10 to 15 minutes they had Not emerged and so brisker walked over

To let them know he was outside Within about two feet of the boiler he Heard the sound of a paint scraper Dropped to the firebox floor Believing that whoever was inside had Heard him approach He said that he stuck his face through The opening Supposedly there in the middle of the Firebox floor Was the paint scraper but missing was The person Who was using it there was no one there Brisker was convinced that only seconds Before he had heard someone Working inside he had no explanation for What he had experienced Ending his testimony all he could say Was this From that day on the explanation it must Be by mind playing tricks Just didn’t work for me anymore and so If brisker’s tale is to be believed It seems that someone who once worked on The ship was continuing to do so even Beyond the grave Similar is a story from a u.s coast Guardsman Who volunteered on the hornet in February 2009. Whilst helping to paint one of the Ship’s compartments He and his fellow volunteers were Dressed in white paper suits

In need of more paint he left the room In which they were working and went off In search of the hornet worker who was Supplying our paint He soon got lost in the labyrinthian Ship wandering the passageways until he Spotted one of his co-workers Some 25 feet ahead of him dressed in Their white paper suit He called out to them but they kept Walking stepping Into a side passageway supposedly when The coast guardsmen caught up with them Turning into the passageway he was Surprised to see no Sign of his co-worker not only that There was a chain Blocking the entrance to the passageway With it only leading to an empty Compartment when he eventually found his Way back to his original compartment he Approached the co-worker he had seen And asked them what had happened why had They not turned when he had called Where did they disappear to the Co-worker was Confused they claimed that they had not Left the room for about an hour What he thought he had seen was not Possible Later when the coast guardsmen mentioned His experience to the hornet’s employees One lady supposedly told him that he had Seen the dress

The staff sergeant shared images of this Standing order as part of their original Post Revealing the genuine concern that Military command At the base had regarding the mystery And fear that the boards had created They were contrary to good order and Discipline and as such Anyone found using one would be subject To administrative Action the marine who shared this Unusual story Did not elaborate to state whether or Not the strange happenings at the camp Ebbed away after this However they are far from alone in their Assertion of strange reports being made By Soldiers at camp lejeune another Testimony shared by someone who lived on The base with their family Described how plenty of weird stuff was Happening in their house Within a week of moving in they Supposedly experienced doors opening and Closing by themselves Electrical malfunctions including the Washing machine turning on randomly And even terrifying pounding noises on Their walls Most horrifying however was their claim That their young son Was able to see something they could not
