During basic training, he severely broke his ankle and was going to be discharged. Paul, however, wanted to be a soldier and pleaded to remain in the service. The military agreed to let him stay and do only light duties - with one condition. He had to do anything he was asked without question.

The fact that so many have pounced so quickly on this story to negate it, is in itself suspicious.
I am old enough to know that things were done a lot differently back in the old days. Your judging his story by today's standards holds no weight with me. You are either speculating or deliberately trying to throw cold water on it.
The notion that something appears too ridiculous by normal standards to be true, does not apply to government which we all know has done very unconscionable things during covert operations. Where do you get off trying to pretend that you are not aware of these things? I don't believe you. The things this man described are indeed well within the realm of possibility for the military and government - especially the American one.
That this man is not slick in his presentation adds to the credibility in my mind. He speaks and acts pretty much how you would expect a person of his years who has had a lot of trauma in his life.
I would not necessarily believe his tale 100% but to deride it so vigorously so quickly is definitely something I am more suspicious of.

humanoid aliens equals bull. They were either engineered or simply nonexistent. You can't have humanoids with technology seemingly only about 60 years ahead of today. Statistically humans should be as rare in space as they were in evolving on this planet. You're not going to get anything like humanity within the range of a nation with technology only 60 years ahead of Earth.

No he has no proof but what if he isn't pulling anyones leg? It is a crazy story and nothing the govt or military does would surprise me. I'm not saying I believe his story but you just never know. Many people when they are in their last years feel the need to let stuff off their chest, maybe this is his intention. Who knows, maybe he is full of it, who knows.
All the what-ifs and supposition in the world will not make the story any more true.
