I was the guard lieutenant cited in the above article. I personally witnessed several of the "flying green fireballs" which were the subject of
several investigations code named "bluebook", "cookstove" and the Atomic Energy Commission designation, "Project Delta. From 1952 through 1955 I
was Director of Security at the Nevada Test Site where I witnessed two fireballs, one of them at 3:00 am which was so bright it illuminated the entire
desert. I attributed these to the CIA project (now known as Area 52) which was actually the U-2 activity being carried on at a CIA site north of the
Nevada Test Site.
I was also present when the aluminized balloons carrying detectors for radioactive fall out resulting from the Soviet Joe 1 test landed at Wagon
Mound, New Mexico, incorrectly described as Almagordo. The balloons were recovered by the Airforce and treated with great secrecy because they
contained classified information relating to the Soviet test. There no little aliens involved.
In 1955 I was transferred to the Washington Headquarters where I eventually became Assistant Director for Policy and Plans.
