I just had my first good scare aboard the old girl. Any good ghost stories from fort Schuyler?
Can’t believe somebody brought this up! I worked on that ol’ gal! I just remember most the cadets saying I was crazy because I would constantly hear this sound, kinda like shaking water or sloshing. I SWEAR that noise would follow me around, but it was only in the lower decks, particularly 5 hold. Had some other weird experiences down there with doors slamming and even heard some strange knocking noises that i couldn’t explain. One night i realized i left my tool belt down there, a minute after heading back up the stairs.When i went back down the lights were off…i had left them on. I just always felt like something was trying to screw with me. Not sure what the history is on deaths or ghosts…but i do know there’s a lot i couldn’t explain.
Why is it that I only hear Kadets and academy grads talk about ghosts? what are they teaching y’all in those places?
Water sloshing in the cadet lounge and reefer flats! Doors with a usual soft close would slam shut. I would be sprinting through the final detex stations!
I always thought that was the fuel bunkers sloshing around under the lounge. Any of you ever stand watch on the USNS Stalwart that they had there for a while. No lights in engine room, plus it was mostly flooded, DETEX rounds were fun.
It is fuel. The day tanks are below the lounge/library area. That’s why it’s always hot as fuck in the cardio room.

Yep, and the huge banging noise that sounds like the ship is going to implode…it’s only the steam heaters in those tanks.
