Great thread, thanks for bringing this into the open. Makes me want to relate a tale that I have thus far only told one person in my life. It bears
some semblance to yours.
Forgive me if this comes across a bit disjointed, as I have been awake for about sixteen hours on only four hours of sleep and my brain is mush.
All of my life I wanted to be an Infantry soldier, however being raised in a family of doctors who were hippies, my parents discouraged the idea. They
did not object to me joining the Army National Guard when I was 17 years old, however, and said they would sign the parental permission form as long
as it wasn't for the Infantry MOS. I had scored very high on the ASVAB, a 98 or 99 as I recall, and I qualified for MI, however the recruiter
encouraged me to become an MP and join a newly re-formed MP Company nearby. So I did.
Now, my main interest in suppressed knowledge-type topics and visiting ATS, is mainly regarding tangible government activities. I have almost no
interest in the paranormal, UFOs, aliens, etc. However I can not deny what happened to me, and it is truly outside of the normal realm of my usual
interests and research here on ATS. So for all I know, it is something that has happened to others and has been covered elsewhere on ATS, I have just
never found any references to this.
This was just the first of a series of strange events that happened involving my time as an MP (I eventually fulfilled my dream and went Infantry a
few years later), however I believe it is the most significant and the only one I feel comfortable discussing on a public forum.
When I went to MEPS for the first time for my initial processing, I had the first, last, and only missing time experience that I know of in my life.
It haunts me to this day because I have absolutely no idea what happened. I remember that at lunchtime we were given coupons for either free or
discounted lunch at a few local restaurants. I believe we were told to be back in an hour, and I headed toward the elevator (MEPS was on the fifth
floor of a downtown office building, as I recall) with a group of people who said they were going to the nearest restaurant, which was just across the
street. I remember agreeing to go with them (we were all new recruits going through MEPS...or so it appeared...I have no reason to think otherwise)
and walking toward the elevator. For some reason I remember what the two people directly in front of me looked like. And that's it, I have absolutely
no memory of the following few hours, or even making it onto the elevator. The next conscious thought I had was finding myself in the recruiter's
government sedan heading through a rural town on our way back to the highway that evening. Not a word was said and no explanation was ever offered to
me. All of my belongings were in the recruiter's car and it was as if nothing unusual happened. I had no known injuries, marks, or oddities on my
body or clothing.
While I do not feel comfortable sharing other things that happened during the early days of my military service, a combination of other events leads
me to conjecture that someone, somewhere selected me to become proficient at certain skills that were in high demand in the MP Corps. My parents were
both psychologists and I sometimes wonder if they had anything to do with it. A doctor that my father once shared a practice with is a person whose
name appears as being suspected of being connected to some mind control experiments, and I remember playing "games" with him as a child when I went
to visit my father at work, "games" that I now know were possibly testing my reaction to things, like Rorschach ink blots and whatnot. Then again,
it could have been completely innocent childhood curiosity about some of the things in the office, and the doctor was just showing them to me.
Nevertheless, the skills that I believe I was hand-picked to learn, are the skills that have landed me the dream job I have today, and I sometimes
wonder if someone or some agency somewhere had me chosen for this particular path in life from an early age, or possibly only once I joined the
