"February 20, 1962: John Glenn, piloting his Mercury capsule, saw three objects follow him and then overtake him at varying speeds."
Actually, the above account is authentic but misleading when, as in its publication in  it is not followed by the remainder of Glenn's account of Glenn. He continues  by stating that the objects become very numerous, moved very slowly, resembled fireflies, had the apparent size of stars and are particularly illuminated by the setting sun. NASA suspected later than they are particles coming from the capsule itself. This was later clearly established during following spaceflights, and particularly when Carpenter on board Mercury 7 : accidentally hitting the capsule's wall, he inadvertently started the take-off of the same fireflies. Thereafter other astronauts would do this for fun.

Stuff like this makes me think that 'Little' means Doolittle...
"Gen. Doolittle, Vandenberg's UFO point man during the 1946 European ghost rocket phenomenon and possibly also in charge of the Foo Fighter investigation for Truman during WWII, also showed up on July 9 in a lengthy meeting with Vandenberg and Army Chief of Staff Eisenhower along with AAF Secretary Symington and Gen. Norstad, AAF Director of Plans and Operations. Immediately afterwards was a meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Was this a social gathering or something else?"

Hey guys, in your searches of the Battle of LA did you come up with a name of C. Scott Littleton? He was supposedly a witness of the UFO? that was fired upon in 1941 that crashed supposedly near San Diego.....LINK
He is a Professor Emeritus of Anthropology from Occidental College who got his interest to reasearch the mythological dimensions of the UFO phenomenom after seeing this incident first hand.....
Also, if you use the capital letters from the clue P S L, you get Professor Scott Littleton.......probably just dumb luck.....
I have tried quite a few words with no advance though, mabey someone else will have better luck....
