Ghost Adventures - Fort Chaffee

Episode Description:
Fort Chaffee is located in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The giant military complex has been home to German POWs, Cuban refugees, and has seen hundreds of deaths during it's long history. For 40 years, soldiers trained for combat within the fort's boundaries. However nobody could have been prepared for the huge influx of Cuban refugees.

Cuba opened its doors for their un-wanted citizens to leave in the 1980s. Thousands of mental patients and criminals from Cuba became permanent residents of Fort Chaffee. There were constant fights and stabbings on the grounds of what became a prison for refugees. The prisoners even threw a full scale riot in response to the conditions at the camp.

The huge complex has been home to a few famous and infamous individuals. Both John Lennon's murderer, and Elvis Presley once called this place home. With over 30,000 acres and a lot of history at the complex, the guys definitely have their work cut out for them.

Ghost Adventures - USS Hornet

Episode Description:

The USS Hornet is called a floating coffin. It was one of the most decorated aircraft carriers in World War II , and it saw numerous battles. The USS Hornet and her crew were responsible for taking down over 1,000 aircraft and sinking 76 ships. War was an awful place, and the Hornet had the unfortunate honor of the highest suicide rate of any ship in the Navy.

Although the ship is now resting peacefully in San Francisco, many people believe the spirits of the crew are still fighting the war. The sick bay is home to countless claims of paranormal happenings. One visitor plays an EVP of someone screaming, "GET OUT!"

Between the pain of war, the cramped quarters, and the length of time these men spent at sea, there is plenty reason for their spirits and energy to linger on the ship. One of the best examples of evidence the boys catch is the voice of a man yelling, "RUN," like he was under attack on the ship.
