SSPR invited two other teams - WOOPI (Western Oregon Organization of Paranormal Investigators) and P.A.S.T. is Present for a joint paranormal investigation aboard the haunted USS Turner Joy in Bremerton, Washington. 

The USS Turner Joy is a Vietnam-era Forest Sherman-class destroyer that fought in the Vietnam war. The ship is now decommissioned and serves as a museum on the Bremerton waterfront. The ship, which was commissioned in 1959, spent its entire time in the Pacific Ocean, and it played a central role in the escalation of the Vietnam War during the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin Incident. 

Aboard the ship, we broke up into teams and spent time in some of the areas where there is reported activity. Some of the night's most interesting activity people reported occurred in the ship's bow - on the bridge, in the captain's stateroom, and in the at sea room. Our newest member, Megan, was really excited about her first major encounter. Her group heard a disembodied voice say Megan's name twice. Patty and Karen also had some interesting experiences in the bow. Investigating with members from WOOPI, they observed interesting lights and shadows in the captain's stateroom and also noticed a pillow on the captain's berth with an indentation that came and went. This activity was accompanied by big swings in temperature and humidity. Later, the same group was in the forward berthing area when they heard the disembodied voice of a man shouting, "Help!"

It's a bit too early for evidence review, but members of the team did record several hours of audio. If we get any EVPs on analysis, we'll post them in our Audio Evidence section. Stay tuned! 

Thanks to Lori for organizing the investigation. We'll be returning again sometime next year,
