Blackout: Great Post! S & F to you. I believe your friend is not the only one who wondered/knows about sightings in that area, however it is first
time I have heard yours, so did some digging around and found this post regarding a possible retrieval at Gatesville a guy reported in 2008. Thanks

"Strange Happenings at Gatesville, Texas Fort Hood Military Base
February 15, 2008
Dr. David Harrington
Gatesville Texas is situated close to Fort Hood, one of the largest military bases in the United States.
Helicopters out on training runs are an every day sight. I've seen many of these training convoys, and feel I know when there is something a little
odd about military activity in the area...
" Between 7:00pm and 9:00pm CST on February 14th 2008, I observed first, two AH-64 A/D Apache Longbow gunships fly overhead heading in a east to west
direction. The two helicopters were approximately 600 yards apart, flying one in front of the other. A minute or so later, another Apache Longbow flew
over, this one equipped with a searchlight which was on at the time of its overhead pass, an action unusual in itself. Approximately five minutes
later, a CH-47
(Chinook) helicopter flew over, flying again, in the same direction, with what appeared to be lifting straps attached to the underbelly. Because of
the time of evening, this detail is difficult to prove for certain, but the Chinook is used for transporting large items, and lifting straps are
sometimes used in just such an operation.
Thirty minutes later, one more Apache Longbow helicopter was seen flying in the same direction. At this point, I threw on a jacket, and walked to a
neighbor's house, a neighbor who knows more about military training operations than I do, and asked if it were possible that the heilos were just on
a training run, or if it were something else. The neighbor agreed with me that because of the nature of the convoy and the presence of a Chinook and a
spotlight-equipped gunship, that the convoy MIGHT be involved in a possible recovery operation of some sort, or may have been searching for something.
I stayed at the neighbor's house, visiting until about 9:00pm. As we stood outside, yet another Apache (note that I had yet to see nor hear any of
return) flew over, and after what appeared to be a distance of three to four miles, banked, reduced speed, and flew in a south to north direction.
It seemed as though these military helicopters were involved in some sort of search/recovery operation. Of what sort, I don't know. I felt this
worthy of mention amid the numerous UFO sightings which have taken place in this part of Texas. Gatesville lies about 60 miles from Stephenville."
