As promised, I spent the majority of my weekend preparing the following submission. I spent a great deal of time browsing through other members
contributions, as I felt with the controversial behavior my introduction thread received, I had better make sure I’m going about this the right way.
I had my grandchildren attempt to explain how to post pictures and references, but I’m still struggling to understand how to use these features.
I’d like to briefly explain that the following information comes from my many years spent working in the aerospace industry for various companies
and government entities. Not every project I was involved with was classified; some were merely your run of the mill, every day aircraft. While others
were kept under an extreme manner of secrecy. It was not uncommon to be randomly taken, interrogated, and given poly graph tests.
It is my understanding now that the members of this site have developed fairly lofty expectations of those who choose to submit any information, and
the bar is set high indeed regarding “proof.” Once again, I do not possess any photographs of any of the top secret craft I was involved with. I
wish I did, however anyone who works in sensitive areas will agree taking pictures, or even attempting to bring in a camera is tantamount to treason.
If caught, you would be lucky if all they did was terminate your position and adversely affect your reputation. The only so called “proof” I can
offer, lies buried deep in my mind and has not been freely shared for some time now.
Of course, I have photographs of myself with various employers and dignitaries, and even some of my military days. I do not plan to submit these
photographs, simply because the main reason I came to this website was so I could propose some ideas, offer my experiences with some sort of
anonymity. If I were to do something like black out my face or alter the photos in any way, not only would I be destroying my own property, but I have
no doubt some here would see that as a form of deception and would not believe it anyways. I have no idea how to edit photographs using a personal
computer, although I know the computers of today are very capable of such tasks.
I would also like to reference my introductory post, I mentioned the firsthand experience of seeing craft, and technology which I could only explain
as being “otherworldly.” As a pilot, I had occasions where myself and a colleague noticed an abnormal craft of some sort. I also heard many
interesting stories from other pilots and servicemen during the WWII, and especially while working as a consultant for aerospace companies. I would
like to reiterate, I have never seen what most would call an “extraterrestrial,” and although I am a firm believer in the distinct possibility of
our planet experiencing visitations, I cannot and will not offer any evidence or stories that claim anything of this nature. I will start from the
beginning and as I give details of various points in my life, I will attempt to incorporate the more interesting details into the timeline.
I was stationed on a “Yorktown” class carrier throughout much of the War. I was assigned as a radio operator on B-25’s and flew on many
successful missions. At this time, many of us had witnessed strange lights at night, both in the sky, and in the sea. We would whisper about these
things, but it was a subject the military did not want us to pay much heed to. It was discovered very early on, any pilot or operator who officially
reported on such things was risking their rank, and reputation. We knew of the German’s producing advanced craft, in some cases surpassing our own
US craft at the time. But, the Japanese were not as advanced. We began speculating that the things we had seen, as well as the objects reported by
other squadrons must be some new German technology that they had given to the Japanese. One case that remains the most poignant in my mind from that
period involved what some call “cigar shaped UFO’s.”
We had been flying for hours. Our task was a routine bombing run, and our payload had already been dropped. Without warning, we noticed a greenish
blue glow, coming from the rear of our aircraft. We initially thought it had to be some strange atmospheric phenomenon, because all of our gauges were
showing normal function, fuel levels, ruling out some issue with our aircraft. The glow persisted in color and intensity for roughly twenty minutes
before we suddenly saw a gigantic black “cigar shaped” craft with what appeared to be some sort of blue/green propulsion system, and no visible
windows or doors. This object proceeded to pass us faster than any known craft of the time, and once a great distance in front of us, proceeded to
make a ninety degree nose-dive, straight into the ocean! We had no clue what this thing could have been, some rocket powered stealth blimp of some
sort? We were all a little shaken up, but as we passed over the general area where the craft descended into the water, we saw no wreckage, or signs
that anything for that matter had occurred. We agreed that we would keep this one to ourselves, for if this truly was some top secret US craft, we
didn’t want to risk asking questions. We had all deduced that it couldn’t have been a malevolent foreign craft, because it did us no harm despite
having all the time in the world and clearly being far more advanced than the B-25 we were in.
We had more than enough things to worry about in those days, dodging Japanese artillery as our chief concern. It wasn’t until years later, I would
think back to those events with more wonder and speculation.
Stories persisted of strange objects. From what I gathered from the German’s (I came to know after the War through my work and travel) both sides of
the War had experienced odd craft or atmospheric anomaly’s, both believing at the time it to be the new secret weapon of the enemy. I heard
personally from men who were fighter pilots in the Luftwaffe that on multiple occasions, they encountered strange glowing orbs that would tail them,
circle their craft and eventually leave them alone. These were described to me as being sort of ball lightning, with no definite physical body, but
their actions gave off the sense that they were intelligent.
Right from the start, there was secrecy surrounding the flying saucer subject that seemed to be orchestrated by the government overseen by
President Truman. Truman was in fact the President who setup structure of the present intelligence system, and made it a tool for use by future
Presidents. In 1946 he set up the Central Intelligence Group, which became the Central Intelligence Agency in 1947. He was the first President in
history to get a daily intelligence report (now know as the President Daily Briefing) to bring him up to date on the latest intelligence developments.
In 1951, Truman created the Office of Current Intelligence, and in 1952 the National Security Agency.
After the War, I found it hard to find work. With so many GI’s returning at the same time, the work force was flooded with applicants. Keep in mind,
the whole country had restructured to support the war effort, and every machine shop, auto manufacturer, ship builder, furniture factory, had been
outfitted to crank out high volumes of munitions, weapons, armored vehicles and the like. I used what is commonly referred to as the GI Bill, to
attend two universities. It was around this time that President Truman publically stated the existence of unidentified craft, and that his belief was
they were not constructed by any power on Earth. This surprising and little known or talked about statement, coming directly from the most powerful
office of the most powerful nation, reminded me of that night in the B-25, and led to many sleepless nights of pondering the notion and possibilities
of beings from outer space.
Please make sure all long posts are broken up into readable paragraphs.
