Hi, I've been scoping the boards here for a couple weeks now, finally decided to post my story. You might've seen it at another site, posted by
Twin40, that is me, I registered here as that but I put the wrong email addy so I had to re-register, oh well.
I wasn't born at the time, but in the late 60's in Oscoda Michigan there were many sightings of UFO's. Instances where hundreds of people on the
beach of Lake Huron witnessed jets trying to engage these UFO's and the UFO's literally made a mockery of them by zipping around in circles around
them etc. This has been recorded and I'm sure you can search it up and find it. It all happened near Wurthsmith AFB in Oscoda. What wasn't recorded
My Dad, mom, and sister lived in a small house in the woods about 1 mile from the air base. About 400 feet behind their house my uncle lived in and
operated a gunshop. He was a world reknown gunsmith who had many articles in The American Rifleman Magazine. There were a few houses down the road but
other than that they were totally isolated in the woods.
One night as they were all sitting on the couch watching television my dad noticed a strange face in the window behind the tv. He describes it as a
pale gray colored skin, big offset eyes, two slits for a nose and a straight slit mouth.
My dad didn't know what to do, he had a feeling of calmness, as if there was nothing to worry about. To this day he explains it as if he was mentally
being told not to be afraid. Of course at the same time it was a weird face in the window and he wanted to know what the hell was going on.
Not wanting to scare my mom and sister he started to get up to go out the door but my mom stopped him with a nudge and whispered to him "do you see
that in the window". They figured it must be the kids from down the road playing a prank or something so my dad got up and went out the door. He got
outside and nothing was there. My mom said it was just gone when he opened the door. He claims that when he opened the door he didn't see or hear
anything except for something moving real fast through the trees branches in the woods, as if a wind had blown through the trees.
The next day they had put it off as a prank. Things were as usual around the house untill they turned on the tv. Remember this is late 60's in the
woods, they had no cable and for reception all they had was a cheap antennae on top of the roof. Normally they recieved 3 channels on their tv, today
they had a crystal clear station on every channel.
My dad felt really odd about this, he called up a guy he knew that worked at a tv shop and told him he wanted him to come over and look at his tv.
When the guy arrived he started flipping through the stations and the guy said "theres no way your getting those channels with that little antennae,
do you mind if I bring my boss out to look at this". His boss indeed came out and they were astonished and couldn't figure out how he was getting
all the stations like that. He told my dad that he was a lucky guy.
That night after dark they were once again watching tv when they noticed the face in the window again. my dad got up and ran out the door and once
again, nothing was there except for the noise going through the trees.
the next day my dad decided he was going to catch the creep who was doing this so he took a rake, raked all the ground under the window to bare, loose
dirt, so that whoever was doing it would leave tracks. That night he hid behind the door(which led straight out to the window) with a shotgun. He told
my mom to raise her hand when the face appeared in the window. My mom raised her hand, my dad rushed out the door with the gun and what he found was
again, nothing. He took out a flashlight to see if there was footprints and nothing was there. not a single track in the dirt at all.
THis went on for a week straight. The face in the window, no tracks in the dirt, the strange tv reception, untill one night late as they was asleep
they woke up to a very strange high pitched hum, and a blinding light comming through their bedroom window. The light and sound grew more intense as
whatever it was came straight down into the backyard behind their house. Oddly they were both telling each other to look out the window, but different
then before they had a strange sense of fear telling them not to look. Mightve just been primal fear I imagine.
The next day their tv was back to normal. Three channels of fuzzy reception. There was a blackened circle in the backyard and my dad saw my uncle walk
out of the gunshop. My dad walked over to him and asked, "did you see that out here last night?" My uncle turned pale white and looked at him funny
and without a word, turned and walked into his gunshop.
My dad knew what it was by now. With all the UFO sightings that had been occuring during the same time it was clearly obvious. My parents decided to
not say anything to anyone about it because during this time there were many reports of people that had witnessed UFO's and reported it, being
visited by the MIB. They didn't want nothing to do with that so they kept quiet.
This the untold story exactly as I've been told countless times by my father and mother. My sister also remembers seeing it.
I think it's a very important event that people should know about. Even though it was so long ago.
Thanks for reading.
