My Military UFO Experience
Hello ATS! I am a long time fan/ lurker of the site and decided it was finally time for me to come in and chip in my 2 cents. I am going to share my
UFO experience I encountered while I was serving in the Armed Forces. This was the first and only time I have ever seen anything like this & have only
shared this with a handful of people until now.
I served for 8 years (from 2002-2010) in the United States Army as a Military Police Officer. In 2004, I was stationed overseas in South Korea. My
unit was currently in green cycle conducting OP4 missions during our FTX (Field Training Exercize ). My Platoon was camped out north of the Imjin
River within a few kilometers of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). There was nothing really there, not even telephone poles or anything manmade for miles,
but were close enough to hear the North Korean propaganda music (in which they play 24/7 – 365 days a year.)
Between 3:30 to 4:30, I was conducting my shift for Equipment/ Fireguard. I remembered sitting in the humvee by myself with my M-4 by my side, while
my platoon was racked out getting some sleep. Then out of nowhere, I observed a bright red circle in the sky, just above the ridgeline. I stared
almost in shock then immediately started notifying my chain of command because I thought maybe North Korea was launching missiles or something similar
to the sort. When I informed my Platoon Sgt & 2LT (our camp site was maybe 50 feet away from the equipment staging area), they both simply responded
to me saying, “ we know, just watch the object and keep a log of its actions.”
Of coarse, being the military, I did the only thing that I could do and followed my orders. While resuming my duties, I was amazed to see that the
bright red circle didn’t move while I was away (about 2-3 minutes). Within around 5 minutes, 4 additional bright lights appeared, but these were
different. The 4 new bright circles were almost a white color, and they surrounded the red circle like they were in a formation of sorts.
The formation was in the shape of a 5 like it would appear on dice, with the bright red circle in the middle & the 4 white circles on top and bottom
corners. I continued to watch these objects stationary in the air for about another 5 minutes or so, until there was a very bright flash of light in
which the main red light shot straight up into the sky faster than I have seen any aircraft move before, military or civilian, and the 4 white lights
shot out in the direction in which they were located in reference to the red light while in formation.
After my shift, I alerted the next soldier of their shift and hit the rack for some sleep. The next morning I was woken up about an hour earlier than
scheduled by my company commander (Captain) and my First Sergeant (1Sgt). They asked me about what had happened the night before, and wanted as much
information as I knew. After I was finished, they took my patrol report, and gave me a new one already filled out with my name and the hours I was on
duty. They then informed me politely to keep quiet about the situation and to never bring it up again.
Everything I have just posted is 100%, god honest truth. I am wondering if anybody out there has had or heard of a similar experience. Please feel
free to ask me any questions you might have. I am very curious if anyone has heard of anything like this before. I should also add that I am
positively sure, without a doubt that these crafts were not man made. I would also like to add my apology for any grammar or punctuation mistakes I
have made. Thanks for your time for reading my first post, and hopefully I will have another story to tell again here on ATS !
