Alright so my father was a computer engineer and technician in the airforce for 14 years. He worked in Norad, in Colorado. His job was to repair
computers and fix other technical problems etc. etc.
Now i don\'t have the closest relationship with my father, he use to travel a lot so i only saw him about once a week and even then i try to avoid
him becasue we just don\'t see eye to eye on most things.
But roughly 3 months ago we had to move. Now with his new job he spends a lot more time at home and we have been talking more often. Now he\'s tried
to talk about what he did in the military with me before, but i just wasn\'t interested and i always changed the subject quickly.
So anyway roughly two weeks ago i was doing a report for my modern american history class(it\'s boring as hell) about the cold war and so i asked my
dad what he knew about it.
Note my dad was in the military from 1982 until 1996.
so i just asked if he knew anything about it. This is when he told me what he actually did for the airforce.
Now he was a computer technician, but he had above top secret clearence. He said that he had full security to every level and room in the mountain
except two floors. His badge read \"Top secret clearence with SCI\"
His job was when a computer crashes or some other peice of hardwire breaks in a top secret room my dad was one of the engineers that fixed it. So he
had a higher clearence then a most people that worked there.
He says that when he was first joined and when he became an engineer and was told where he would be stationed. That he was getting all sorts of calls
from family and old high school teachers saying that the FBI was asking questions about him. and they were wondering if he was in trouble, but in
reality they were just checking up on him becuse of the clearence he was about to receive.
Now i have always loved conspiracy theories so i have been hounding my dad for any info. he could give me but unfortunatly he says he can\'t tell me
much. He says he can\'t tell me much about anything he did.
The reason i\'m posting this is because i am wondering, if my dad was givin such a high security clearence would the military pay extra attention to
his immidiate family? Like his son, like me!
For example, would the military watch or moniter my computer and phone lines?
I have always been a little paranoid and now im freaking out a little.
so i was just wondering do you guys think i am overreacting? Am i making to much out of this or should i start looking out for stuff?
