    Oh my God could my ship possibly be used as a Halloween decoration my name is bt3 Robert Stubbs I served on board Edson from 1977 to 1981 I was hoping to come see her for a visit but not like this I just found out you guys are holding scary stuff there and I don’t know what to think yet this is a 1-minute knee-jerk reaction as long as the ship is upright and still people are interested in her God bless you and no matter what it takes long live the USS Edson from a dedicated snipe in the aft fire room boilers 3 and 4

      I promise the group running the Edson Incident takes every possible percaution to protect the ship. The money they donate to us from this event plays a large role in getting our restoration work completed and we are very grateful that they chose the Edson as the setting for their event.

      I believe you can still do the normal ship tour during morning and afternoon hours so you need not attend the evening Halloween functions.

      I think it is so amazing that you served on this ship. I went to the haunted attraction in 2019 and it is by far the most amazing “haunted house” attraction I have ever visited. We love it!! They do an amazing job with the ship and it is cared for in the best manor. God bless the USA

      Scheduled Field Days are set by the Edson Association. You can visit their website HERE. If the dates they have set up don’t work for you, please reach out to us. We always have projects that we need help with and may be able to have you come out at a time that works better for you.

      The Aft Engineering Space is open. We typically do not take people into the Forward Engineering Space due to safety concerns.

    I made a cruise from Newport R.I. on the Edson While serving TAD (Temporary Active Duty) as a sit in for one of their Corpsman . We went to Bay City and back to Newport . Was only one cruise I only spent 41 days on the ship was a great memory I served on the USS Miller FF1091 During that same time period 1981-1983

    I live in Michigan and I’m finally gonna make it too see the USS EDSON. I served on the USS DALE CG-19. My ship could be twins with the EDSON. I was a BT. Ran the boilers in the aft fireroom. I ended up in the oil lab for my last 2 yrs. I served from 78 to 81. I’m pretty excited just to walk around her. I walk with a cane but somehow Im gonna make it down one of those ladders. But if you can make it to see the USS EDSON I’m for sure you won’t be disappointed!

      How did you do with your cane? I have MS and use a cane. For me the decking was hard to keep my balance on but once my son held my arm I was fine. We have been there in the early afternoon and had the ship to ourselves. That was best as we just took our time exploring the ship. I handled the ladders better, I was slow on them but made it up and down just fine. Just take your time and move slow and steady. Helps to have someone with you to help you balance but I bet you were fine,
