I think the most we can do at this stage is what this thread was set up to do--to collect and present to ATS readers a collection of personal military personnel's experiences and OBSERVATIONS with UFOs/USOs.
That's quite a bit--IF--we could get many dozens of folks to do it.

Oddly, though, other than the Russian spy ball lightning thing, I don't think I ever saw a "UFO" during my years in the military. Grant you, most of the time I was pretty busy and not looking for that sort of thing, and you're more likely to see "UFOs" in the AF or Navy *coff* as Army doesn't get into that.
My late eldest brother was the King o' the Sonar on a missile frigate in the 70s, and yep he had LOTS of stories to tell.
Eldest Bob had all sorts of Navy related sightings but the three Army Bedlams did not. We had several of them as kids and AFTER the Army but not during.
Now, I did see some really oddball military related stuff that was most obviously military of the you-didn't-see-anything-move-along variety. But not UFOs.
As a contractor, now, that's a different story.

I once spoke to a bomber pilot from ww2. I asked him if he believed in UFO's and he said "damn right I do".
He told me ufo's were all over the place. They would pace along side the plane just out of gun shot range. Apparently if you shoot a bullet, it only goes so far and then falls toward the earth.
Once, he radioed the gunner in the bubble on top of the plane and asked if he could see what he see's... Apparently there was a huge cigar shaped mother ship with a bunch of small ships going into it. He said the mother ship was huge, miles long... He said they could tell how large it was by comparing it to the stars...
IHe also said one flew straight at him, at the last minute, zooming just over him, and caused his plane to flip over backwards...
He said when they landed they were debriefed... basically told they did not see what they saw, never to speak of it, etc, etc, the usual stuff you here...
The guy was serious, and I believed what he had to say...
Not my story, so, hope you don't mind. But an undocumented story from a veteran in Canada.
Sorry if my terminology is wrong... I don't know anything about bombers, but I think the basic jest is there.
Awesome stories, thanks, and glad you shared.edit on 1-6-2013 by ByteChanger because: (no reason given)
Nice story but did you really just explained me gravity also works for bullits? I mean really?
high in the sky was an object that looked as if it was made of neon tubing.it was square and blue in the center was a solid red circle. This object zig zagged across the sky.it never disappeared it just sailed over the horizon.
