Nice job of relating a lot of incidences, and piecing it together. Many of the added comments from other members helped, too, to add more pieces of
the over-all puzzle that were missing. I'm talking about the combinations of various occurrences, like the land-grab and such...but, I digress.
(Because, those events may or may NOT be related to ET, or any such activity. Seems like the Cold War era sort of thing...national defense).
Cutting through so much that is (either) sincere mistakes and mis-identifications of odd occurrences, and/or (willful) DIS-information, from whatever
sources, makes this topic even more complicated to decipher. Your relating the tales is coming from truth as you know and experienced it, so that's
why it resonates, and doesn't smack of deception or simple hysterical ranting. (I'm a bit jealous, as I have often wanted to "see" or
"encounter" something, in order to have my own personal perspective to compare....).
I take great umbrage, at times, with certain others who (in my opinion) sully the seriousness of this phenomenon by "speculating" in a way that
masquerades as "fact-finding", or "assertions"....in other words, some use disparate facts they've collected, and massage them in order to make a
square peg fit into the round whole of reality. Speculating, and even "wild guessing" about some things is fine and dandy, as long as it's made
clear that they are opinions
, and aren't presented in such a way as alleged "facts".
OK...hopefully that is understood (and not misunderstood). I read through the entire thread, and haven't seen one event you related addressed yet,
it seemed compelling and I wondered if there was more info. It is this story:
The year after my Father died while visiting my Sister and Brother In-Law in Pearl City, Hawaii where he was stationed, is the next step in
this story. The first night we were there they started telling us about an odd thing that happened a few nights before. They were watching the Network
News and it was interrupted with a report that a UFO had crashed in Florida and three live Aliens had been found and then the TV went black for nearly
ten minutes. When it came back on they never mentioned it again.
My Brother In-Law called his buddy who would have been the one to receive the report for the Navy the next day and he said it was them who had blacked
out the TV and he could not talk about it. He was never able to get any information beyond it was a person with the military that leaked the story and
it was them who blacked out the TV for a few minutes to clean it up.
Piecing together your personal timeline, this would be in the 1967-1978 range, correct? Is there more on the events in Florida? Is this in any way
related to the (rather famous) "Gulf Breeze" series of sightings? Maybe not, they popped up in later years.
A (relatively quick) online search turned up nothing in Florida for that time-frame...however, what did come up reminded me of the famous Shag Harbor,
Nova Scotia sighting (and "crash") in 1967. Very great deal of focus on that incident, so I wondered why the Florida story has been buried so
effectively (?) since, as you noted, it DID (briefly) make it out onto the airwaves in a TV newscast.......
