I was raised in southern Michigan and was 6 years old in 1966. The UFO "flap" lasted for more than a year. Even though I was very young, I
remember my parents (and everyone else in town) discussing the numerous lights in the sky. Even to this day, I remember looking up at them coming
together in formations and then zipping away from each other and out of sight in the blink of an eye.
One time I remember hearing the local radio station break in with a bulletin to announce that jets were being scrambled from Glenview Naval Airstation
(near Chicago) in an attempt to intercept the UFO's over Lake Michigan.
Some people were scared, but I was fascinated and excited by the UFO phenomena..even before age 10. In the late 60's my favorite shows were Star
Trek, Lost in Space and a British TV series entitled "UFO".
It's amazing that Gerald Ford took the time to respond to a single supporter's letter with a real signature...even if it was on a preformatted
letter. How times have changed...
