I was inspired to start this thread by the following:
The Montauk Project is one of the first things, if not the very catalyst, that sparked my interest in suppressed knowledge and technology.
In short, I believe that government and/or military-sanctioned activities of a secret nature, occurred and/or are still happening, at the Montauk
AFS/Camp Hero. What those things were (or are), I do not know.
I have read all of the Montauk books as well as everything I can find online about the topic. I have been an amateur radio “nerd” since I was old
enough to spin the analog dials on shortwave receiver, so the entire concept is interesting to me on a hobby/science level as well as a darn good
story of a possible cover-up.
To save space from extensive cutting-and-pasting, please reference my post on the following thread, at the bottom of this page:
The stories in that thread were told to me back in the mid-1990s. Since then I have had two other encounters with people who have reinforced my
suspicions that something unusual took place at Montauk. I chose my words carefully; I am fairly certain that something
strange happened there,
however I have not heard nor seen anything to convince me that it involved time travel, alien beings, or any of the other myths surrounding the base.
I have never told anyone the following two stories but I figure the ATS crowd is the best audience I will ever get, and that perhaps some intelligent
questions and ideas will come from these stories.
The first story I want to relate is not much, and I choose to leave some details vague just in case someone reading this recognizes something and is
able to figure out my identity (as with everything I post on ATS). My parents lived on Long Island during the time of some of the alleged Montauk
activity. My mother had a relative who had something to do with the base; all I remember is that he was a WWII veteran and after leaving the military
he worked as a civilian for some defense contractor on Long Island . He died when I was young, but I met his wife at a family gathering about ten
years ago. She was discussing her husband and I steered the conversation around to his military service and civilian career (purposefully fishing for
details or mentions of the base). She never mentioned the base, so I decided to come right out and ask her point-blank, something to the effect of:
“Wasn’t there some sort of military base at the tip of Long Island , where they did all kinds of strange experiments?” I will never forget her
response, it was simple but sent chills down my spine. She said, “oh yes, he had many sleepless nights about things he saw (note: she may have even
said things he DID at the base, I do not recall exactly) at that base, I know what you are talking about. But he never told me a word about what it
was that bothered him.”
The second story is more interesting but could amount to nothing. I worked for a small town police department in Massachusetts and one of the older
members of the town’s fire department was a former career USAF radar person. I do not know exactly what he did, I just know that he had an
impressive education (at least two Master’s degrees in things related to radar or RF science) and allegedly refused a commission because he liked
doing hands-on things as an enlisted man and did not want to become a desk jockey. He used to sit and talk with me for hours at the VFW after work,
telling me all kinds of places he went and systems he worked on. Interestingly enough he mentioned Thule , Greenland , a lot, and I know that name is
tied in with the Montauk project stories and the Vril, etc. I don’t recall exactly how it fits into the puzzle, but I digress—those who have read
the books know what I mean. Anyhow, he loved talking about radar and RF, and it was easy to get him to discuss the SAGE system among many others that
he worked on. However when I tried to approach a discussion of Montauk, something interesting happened.
I have to sidetrack for a moment here. I read somewhere about a General in the first Gulf War (1991) who was asked about psychological warfare by a
news reporter, and instead of a direct reply the General completely shifted topics as if programmed to do so, and began discussing Maxwell House
Back to my story about the ex-USAF gentleman. One day I moved the conversation toward SAGE radar sites and listened as he talked about the sites and
the system in general. We had been talking about radar and RF for hours, as usual, so I asked him about the SAGE facilities that had been in the
northeast, as if it was just part of the conversation. He made a general reference to New York and just kept talking like always. I brought him back
to the subject of SAGE radar in NY, and asked him if he had heard about a base where unusual experiments were conducted and strange things were
rumored to have occurred. He thought for a couple seconds, then suddenly his face and physical demeanor changed. I swear it sounded as if he was
programmed, in fact “programmed” is the perfect term for his reaction; his body shifted and he stared kind of blankly with a poker face, and began
talking about how his son was supposed to change the windshield wipers on his car that evening. I remember it as vividly as if it happened yesterday.
It was the only time I had ever heard this man, to whom the subject of radar was near and dear to his heart, change the subject away from a discussion
of radar or RF science. This guy lived and breathed radar and amateur radio, and to see him want to change the subject so drastically left me
speechless. I never attempted to approach the topic with him again.
