Sorry to here about your Mum. Want to hear a hauntingly familiar story!
-Background- I'm the oops kid, my nearest sibling is 10 years older than I. My oldest sister is 10 years older then him, with one in the
middle.(Sorry it sounds like a word problem.) My dad was an officer in the Air Force intel and traveled a lot. He joined in the early 50's, was
stationed in Libya for a while, Pakistan, Omaha, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico. He met my mom in the early 60's which leads me to believe my
sister is only my half sister. When I was born they were living in Maine and my dad had retired in the early 70's when he was working near
Weired part-My mom died when I was three, and when I was eighteen my sister sat me down for a long talk. Mind you I had the most normal and serene
childhood one could ask for. I was really into U.F.O.'s and my dad really pushed that fascination, with books, magazine, articles, and newspaper
clippings( this was before the interweb) I digress...My sister told me about my mom and more about my dad, with whom she had a strained relationship
with since my mom had died. She asked if he and I had ever talked about U.F.O.'s? I said we had and that he seemed fairly knowledgeable about them.
She asked if he had said anything strange or shown me any pictures. I said he told me that 90% of the "sightings" were weather ballons and such, but
the other 10% we didn't need to know about and "they" didn"t think we could handle the truth.
Also in the late 80's when the B-2 went public, my dad dug through some old photos. He showed me a picture he had taken in Libya in the late 50's of
a large flying wing that was silver. It looked like it was made of stainless steel. Mind you it wasn't a direct picture of the craft, it was over
someones shoulder. It looked about 3/4 of the size of the B-2. He told me that the U.S. had planes like that for some time, just not as advanced.
She told me that he had a Top Secret clearance and that my mom told her he had worked on Project Blue Book. She reminded me of all those visits by
guys in suits driving the stereotypical sedans with gov't plates to talk with my dad. At the time he was Plant Manager of a Factory here in Maine,
so looking back it was a little odd. At the time he used to just say "They were from daddy's old work checking to make sure we were O.K.," so as a
kid I never thought any more of it.
-About my dad- He could type like the keys were on fire, was fluent in Russian and Farsi. Told me he was present for some of the building of Cheyenne
mountain, and he said he knew Gary Powers.
I have since asked him point blank if he knows if U.F.O.'s are real, and he just laughs and say what do you think. I have even asked him during a
diabetic reaction (wrong I know) and he would just say " I can't talk about what I did," which leads me to believe he knows something!
Googleing his name brings no results, which is odd, NO digital footprint.
So needless to say, I found your story most intriguing!
