THE BELL: PART TWO

The 1965 crash of a supposed UFO at Kecksburg is often referred to in UFO-circles as the “Roswell of Pennsylvania.”

A brief description from ufoevidence.org:

On December 9 1965, hundreds of witnesses in southern Canada, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania observed a UFO crash from the sky. In March 1966, scientist and UFO investigator Ivan Sanderson compiled an account from various eye witness stories.

The object took six minutes to pass the observed trajectory, from which Sanderson calculated a speed of 1,600 km/h, which, if accurate, would rule out a meteor. Several pilots spoke of being buffeted by shock waves as the thing passed them. There were also stories of a sonic boom and vibrations felt on the ground. The smoke trail was so intense that it remained visible for up to twenty minutes. During the final few miles of its flight the object seemed to change course.

After the impact the police set off the forest. They were subsequently chased away by the military. A few hours later the military team told them they had found nothing.

In January 1980 UFO investigator Clark McClelland interviewed the assistant fire chief of Kecksburg, James Mayes, and Melvin Reese, another fireman. They reported that their team had come within sixty meters of the object. They had seen an object on the ground that had smashed its way through the trees. Mayes explained how the military had cordoned off the woods and had established a temporary base, complete with telecom link. Fire chief Robert Bitner later confirmed this story. He also said had seen an object that was 1.8m high, 2m wide and some 5m long, clearly not an aircraft. It was resting at an angle on the ground as if it had impacted nearly horizontally. Another fire officer, ‘Pete’, stated he had seen a ring of bumpers around it into which were described some pictorial symbols. Being of Polish decent he could read Russian and stated that they were not Russian.

Researcher Ray Boeche file a Freedom of Information request for more data on the incident. In 1985 30 pages of data were procured. It was insignificant information, except for a memo that said a three man team had been dispatched to the site to pick up an object. The final conclusion of the file was that the UFO was a meteor.

A theory has been proposed that the object was a crashed Russian satellite (Cosmos 96). However, NASA has released data that say that Cosmos 96 reentered Earth’s orbit on December 9, 3.15 a.m. The crash took place 13 hours later.

After the US TV series Unsolved Mysteries had reported the case two new witnesses came forward. One was a USAF officer at Lockbourne AFB (near Columbus, Ohio). In the early hours of December 10, a truck arrived by the little used back gate of the base and he was ordered to patrol it. It was a flat-bed with a large tarpaulin on the surface covering a conical object. He was told to shoot anyone who tried to get too close. He was advised the truck was bound for Wright Patterson AFB, which is the reputed home of other crashed saucers.

The other witness was a building contractor who was asked two days later to take a load of 6,500 special bricks to a hangar inside Wright Patterson. When he sneaked a look inside the hangar he saw a bell-shaped device, some 4m. high sitting there. Several men wearing white anti-radiation style suits were inspecting the object. After he had been escorted out he was told that he had just seen an object that would become common knowledge in 20 years time.

The object was a bell-shape. Many have taken this as a direct link to the myth surround die glocke, the mythical Nazi experiment (Read Part One of this article HERE)

From abovetopsecret.com, which by the way provides a brilliant and in-depth article on the incident, the bell is described by one witness as “a bronze colored, acorn shaped, and 12 by 25 feet in size object with a raised “blunt” end that had strange markings on it.” When you look at depictions of what the ‘acorn’ looked like, it is easy to conclude that there must be a link of some sort with that and the bell shaped device the Nazi’s were supposedly experimenting with twenty years previous.

You can read the abovetopsecret article HERE

To me, what makes the Kecksburg incident seem like such a genuine cover-up, is what happened to local reporter John Murphy. Go HERE to learn about the role Murphy had to play in the Kecksburg incident.

How strange that after being silenced regarding the crash, or whatever it was, he was killed in a hit and run? Was he targeted by government agents after being deemed a liability?

The Kecksburg doesn’t get as much exposure in the press as Roswell, but it is just as mysterious.

See the doc below:

Hopefully these two posts have allowed you to learn a little bit about the mystery surrounding die glocke, and the Kecksburg UFO crash. Whilst there’s nothing new I can write about these, I can link you to some great articles that already been written about them, which is what I’ve done.

Let me know your thoughts below. What do you think about die glocke? What do you think about Kecksburg? Is there a link between the two?

THE BELL: PART ONE

The Bell, or Die Glocke in German, is a kind of world war two myth – one of the wunderwaffe, or wonder weapons, that the Nazi’s developed in secret, rumoured to have superweapon qualities. These wunderwaffe included plans for Nazi ballistic missile submarines, turbo jet dive bombers, sub-orbital antipodal bombers, experiments with nuclear energy, superguns, the ‘Sun Gun’ – a parabolic mirror placed in orbit, used to focus sunlight onto locations on Earth’s surface, even the V2 rocket.

Tested in an underground facility, the bell is rumoured to have been many things; an anti-gravity experiment, a piece of a crashed UFO… even a type of time-travel device. Some accounts speak of the bell creating a window into the past. Most sources state that the bell was indeed an anti-gravity experiment.

From the wikipedia description of the bell:

Claims about the existence of Die Glocke originated in the works of Igor Witkowski. His 2000 Polish language book Prawda O Wunderwaffe (The Truth About The Wonder Weapon, reprinted in German as Die Wahrheit über die Wunderwaffe), refers to it as “The Nazi-Bell”. Witkowski wrote that he first discovered the existence of Die Glocke by reading transcripts from an interrogation of former Nazi SS Officer Jakob Sporrenberg. According to Witkowski, he was shown the supposedly classified transcripts in August 1997 by an unnamed Polish intelligence contact who claimed to have access to Polish government documents regarding Nazi secret weapons. Witkowski maintains that he was only allowed to transcribe the documents and was not allowed to make any copies. Although no evidence of the veracity of Witkowski’s claims have been produced, they reached a wider audience when they were retold by British author Nick Cook, who added his own speculations to Witkowski’s claims in The Hunt for Zero Point.

Allegedly an experiment carried out by Third Reich scientists working for the SS in a German facility known as Der Riese (“The Giant”) near the Wenceslaus mine and close to the Czech border, Die Glocke is described as being a device “made out of a hard, heavy metal” approximately 9 feet wide and 12 to 15 feet high having a shape similar to that of a large bell. According to Cook, this device ostensibly contained two counter-rotating cylinders which would be “filled with a mercury-like substance, violet in color. This metallic liquid was code-named “Xerum 525”” and was otherwise cautiously “stored in a tall thin thermos flask a meter high encased in lead”. Additional substances said to be employed in the experiments, referred to as Leichtmetall (light metal), “included thorium and beryllium peroxides”. Cook describes Die Glocke as emitting strong radiation when activated, an effect that supposedly lead to the death of several unnamed scientists and various plant & animal test subjects. Based upon certain external indications, Witkowski speculates that the ruins of a metal framework in the vicinity of the Wenceslas mine (aesthetically dubbed “The Henge”) may have once served as test rig for an experiment in “anti-gravity propulsion” generated with Die Glocke; others, however, dismiss the derelict structure as simply being a conventional industrial cooling tower.

Witkowski’s claims along with Cook’s speculations prompted further conjecture about the device from American fringe science authors such as Joseph P. Farrell, Jim Marrs, and Henry Stevens. Farrell claims that the device was considered so important to the Nazis that they killed 60 scientists that worked on the project and buried them in a mass grave. In his book, Hitler’s Suppressed and Still-Secret Weapons, Science and Technology (2007), Stevens speculates that Die Glocke contained red mercury and describes stories alleging that a concave mirror on top of the device provided the ability to see “images from the past” during its operation. Witkowski speculated that Die Glocke ended up in a “Nazi-friendly South American country”. Cook speculated that it was moved to the United States as part of a deal made with SS General Hans Kammler.

According to Patrick Kiger writing in National Geographic, Die Glocke has become a “popular subject of speculation” and a following similar to science fiction fandom exists around it and other alleged Nazi “miracle weapons” of Wunderwaffen.

The consensus does seem to be that the bell was a genuine Nazi experiment into anti-gravity, (although whether the technology originated from crashed extra-terrestrial craft is anyone’s guess) and that after the war the technology was picked-up by scientists in the US – which in itself has far-reaching ramifications. If that is the course of events, then could all of the UFO sightings of the last century in fact be sightings of top secret anti-gravity aircraft? This is not a new question. Indeed it goes hand in hand with the UFO phenomenon… but perhaps die glocke was the very beginnings of it.

Below is a pretty good documentary on die glocke, and related Nazi experiments and tech. At the very end of this post there is also an embedded video of an interview conducted with Igor Witowski, including footage of the ‘water-tower’, said to house either the bell itself, or a large cooling tank used in its experimentation.

MJ-12


Another pointer to a great article. Over at ufoencounters.co.uk there is a page concerning the Majestic 12 – the top secret group of 12 men tasked with dealing with the UFO issue following the Incident at Roswell.

As these sites point out, there is evidence there to say that there is, or was, an organisation called Majestic 12. And there are the documents that seem to show references not only to MJ-12 but also to UFO’s.

Have a read and see what you think. I think it is entirely plausible that there is an organisation covering-up frequent visits by UFO’s, and our own possession of extraterrestrial materials. But how do you prove it…?

There is a very in-depth article relating to the Majestic 12 and their supposed dealings with the ET’s visiting Earth written by John Lear which you can read HERE

I WANT TO BELIEVE

This is a sort of postscript to a previous article, UFO’s IN PHOTOGRAPHS FROM NASA SERVER, which you can read by going HERE

It has proved to be the most popular article on the site. I think it is because a lot of people have a genuine interest, or curiosity, toward the phenomenon of UFO’s. I think it’s because they’re not just here-say. We have pictures of them. We have videos. We have thousands and thousands of people popping up each year claiming to have seen one with their own eyes. Even if you said that 99% of these sightings were fake… what about that 1%? You cannot be 100% sure that UFOs do not exist, so therefore there is always that little tiny probability that a few people have actually seen one.

The pictures that have been found on the NASA server are intriguing. They genuinely look like there is some kind of craft in them – and it is definitely not like anything we have flying in the sky at the moment… that we know of.

As I stated in the article itself, it could very well be a top secret aircraft. But what if it isn’t? There’s something in those pictures though. I had one person respond to the article saying “It’s a sticker on the window.” The proof is there for you to see. There’s something in those pictures, flying. A craft. Alien or Human in origin and design, it is nevertheless a craft. There’s no way it is a reflection, a sticker on the window, a photoshop fake. It’s there. On a NASA server.

This all leads me to a thought I had which you can either agree with or not, it’s your choice. It could explain how these pictures weren’t stopped from ending up on a public NASA server though – what if the governments of the world know that their time is running out on this issue? With modern photography equipment, etc, it is only a matter of time before someone comes up with real hard proof of a UFO visiting Earth. How can they suddenly break their silence after so many decades of lies? Perhaps leaking stuff like this on to the web, gradually, bit by bit, is their way of letting us in on the biggest secret in history.

Think of it as damage control. It’s like breaking the bad news gently.

Julian Assange has stated that future wikileaks will concern UFO’s. Why would the governments of the world not stamp all over this? Perhaps they want him to tell us a bit of what they know. Perhaps, as much as wikileaks is a pain in their backsides, it is also a help in letting go of some of their most highly classified secrets.

There is something in those pictures. NASA allowed them on a public server, for all to see. I think NASA did that on purpose as part of a plan of disclosure to gradually let everyone in on the secret.

Wikileaks will release official documents containing information regarding UFO’s later this year. Eventually we will know the truth. Those of us who want to believe.

THE REAL BATTLE LOS ANGELES 1942: WHAT WERE WE REALLY FIRING AT?

There is an extensive article at phantoms and monsters about the real battle of Los Angeles – the air raid of 1942.

The army was firing at something in the sky, an object that was apparently ‘glowing’. They were so serious about the incident that they blacked-out the entire city and fired for hours into the sky.

What were they firing at? An enemy blimp? Or a craft of alien design?

If they were firing at an alien craft, then perhaps there is a link to incidents like Roswell. This happened 1942, Roswell was 5 years later.

Connected? Did they find a way to shoot one of these things down?

UFO’s IN PHOTOGRAPHS FROM NASA SERVER

I was sent a link by @ExpeditionNovel and @RaftReload on twitter, referring me to a site, http://ovninews.wordpress.com/2010/12/27/ufo-pictures-from-nasa-server/

I know there has been a lot of posts from myself in the last few days relating to UFO’s – but I couldn’t resist posting something about this one. I would be foolish not to. Official NASA pictures showing an unidentified craft? Of course I’m posting about it.

At the site there is a video, embedded below, analysing some of the pictures on a NASA public server. Having watched the video and viewed the original source images, I do believe that they show something.

However in my opinion, whether they show an alien craft or something very top secret built by humans remains to be seen.

They’re not a smoking gun. But there is definitely a craft in these pictures and I think it is strange that NASA has not responded with a press statement explaining the craft away.

I have cropped and enlarged some from the original picture files below, so that you can see the craft for yourselves. You can go to the onvinews.wordpress.com site to get the links to the source files if you so wish.

Can we cross-reference these pictures with any UFO’s of a similar configuration taken from ground-based observers? As I’ve stated it is either a UFO of an alien design, or it is one of our birds. But I’ve never seen anything like this.

These pictures were taken by astronauts. So they’ve been seen with human eyes. We’ve had former astronauts come out before stating that they’ve seen UFO’s whilst out in space. Is it a common thing? Do they know they’re not alone when they’re working up there?

I don’t know what is more frightening – that we are visited by multiple alien craft all the time, or that our governments know about it and hide the truth from us. It is the fundamental question at the heart of all those who believe in UFO’s, and one that remains as yet unanswered.

Go to onvinews and have a look at all of the images yourselves.

COLD WAR UFO’s?

There is some evidence that we were visited by beings not of this planet, dating back throughout Earth’s history – or rather, the history of homosapiens tenure of this world. These include mysterious hieroglyphics found in Egyptian tombs, to strange (and out of place) scratches on the walls of caves by primitive man… even through to Mayan culture, which may very well have been influenced and nurtured by something from another world.

From the pyramids, to the structures on Easter Island, to the assemblage of oblong stones at Stonehenge. History is replete with questionable findings that do seem to hint at contact with a higher intelligence at early stages in human history. And much like the Easter Island monoliths of stone with faces carved into them, there are signs that visitors to this planet were worshipped like gods, with temples and followers.

And there are artifacts; look at the crystal skulls that have been found over the last few centuries. Some have been created by modern means for sensationalism – but some seem to defy belief. Artifacts like that seem to have come from so long ago, and yet created with more skill
and precision than we could manage today.

How?

You can see why some believe, and possibly rightly so, that we have been influenced at stages in our progression as a species, as a culture, by some form of life ‘not of this Earth’.

There is an opinion that we may have drawn a lot of attention from alien visitors during the cold war, by exhibiting our newly found mastery of the atom.

It was quite a leap to go from spear-throwers, to stone carvers, to working with metals, creating industry, discovering electricity… to splitting the atom. We had proven that we had the skill to create a weapon of awesome power – and one capable of indescribable destruction. Perhaps our unleashing of atomic energy made other civilizations aware of us. We have technologies now capable of detecting a nuclear detonation on the other side of the planet. So it is therefore conceivable that an alien intelligence, far more advanced than we, would have a means of detecting this kind of weapon from light years away.

There are many documented incidents relating to UFO’s throughout the period of the cold war.

In 1982 a saucer-shaped UFO was reportedly spotted above a nuclear missile base outside of Byelokoroviche, in the Ukraine. It hovered and rotated and as it did so, the nuclear missiles in the base began to launch. It took the engineers only seconds to regain control of the launch systems and stop them going off, but for those few frantic seconds it was evident to them all that something else was in control of the missiles – perhaps the UFO hovering in the sky above them. Had they not stopped the launch, the missiles would have flown to the US and detonated, causing a full-scale nuclear war.

Another well-known incident was that which took place at Fort Monmouth, in September of 1951. You can read a very detailed account of the incident, by clicking HERE

There is an endless list of such incidents, as investigated and documented by the UFO investigator Robert Hastings. He documented the experiences of over 120 former and retired US Air Force personnel involved in such incidents since 1973, presenting his findings in 1981. He has since worked to bring to the public’s attention his findings of these events, as he believes from conducting his investigations that there is a real case to be made for UFO monitoring of Nuclear facilities, devices and operations.

You can watch Robert Hastings talking about his work and his findings below:

Yes you could say that all of these witness statements actually refer to top secret aircraft being tested, and spotted by chance. But does it stretch credibility to refute all of the UFO sightings like this? I believe it does. Some of the accounts from witnesses are so outlandish in their descriptions of the technology on display that surely they cannot all be relating to craft designed and built by human hands.

There are enigmas and unanswered mysteries relating to what has been found around the world, but no hard fact that human civilization has been nurtured by an extraterrestrial intelligence in the past. We can only assume.

However that is not to say that we have not been observed and monitored, especially in modern times perhaps as I have stated because our rapid developments of the last century or so have brought us newfound attention.

If there are beings who have visited the Earth and are visiting it today, then who knows what they make of us. Perhaps it is like H. G. Wells described it; like germs studied under a microscope by intelligences far greater than our own. I am not saying we are an experiment to them, but perhaps we are amusing.

If the exposure of official documents containing references to UFO’s by wikileaks does come to pass, and we do learn that in fact the governments of the world have had knowledge of frequent visitations, then perhaps we will get some of the answers we seek. There is a revolution, some would say, and that revolution is one built on information. Wikileaks is pushing this kind of revolution with exposure of information to the public domain. They say they have information about UFO’s. I for one believe them. How revelatory it is, who knows? I hope it is game-changing. I hope we get proof. I cannot wait to hear the responses from the different governments of the world. Surely in such an event, simple denial will no longer be an acceptable response.
Was human civilization influenced by alien beings? Was human history changed and affected by these visitors from the stars? Did the actions and developments by the super powers during the cold war prompt an increase in visitors from other worlds?
There isn’t enough proof… yet. But perhaps in time there will be.

Further reading:

Take a look at what is meant to be real KGB footage of a crashed craft, filmed in March, 1969. Apparently the film has been studied and examined, and there is very little to say that it is a fake.

PROJECT MANNEQUIN

I’ve come across a slightly paranoid yet fantastic site, called educate-yourself.org which details all manner of conspiracy’s. There’s plenty on there to have a look at and I recommend giving it a ten minutes of your time.

Whilst you might think most of it is a bit too much like Mulder’s ravings in X-Files, I found it very interesting and it fed that part of me that likes to engage with a good conspiracy.

One of the pages that stood out to me was the page dealing with Project Mannequin.

It is about a man called James Casbolt who was brain-washed since childhood and who has slowly started to recover his memories of his experiences.

An excerpt:

People simply don’t understand just how technologically advanced the NWO is compared to the civilian sector. We aren’t talking about fifty years ahead, we’re talking about one thousand years ahead. Cloning, total mind control, invisibility, anti-gravity, free energy, age regression, soul transfers, extended life spans, time travel, space portals, ability to cure any disease, time machines, etc. are already in the hands of the NWO and their military lap dogs. We are living in a make-believe world of pretend democracy while being lied to by pretend representatives, pretend media, and pretend leaders, of which a large percentage are working on behalf of the NWO to destroy this country and usher in the satanic One World government.

You can go straight to the page HERE

The topics covered on the site range from Cancer, the New World Order, Water Supply Sabotage and Homeography.

Whatever you think of what is said on the site, I think it’s worth a read. Conspiracy theorists are perceived as paranoid scare-mongers, but I think that actually they just have an opinion on something, a certain outlook that they want to share. They want someone out there to say “You know, you have a point there.” I think that most of them just want you to think about what they’re saying.

Go there, by clicking HERE and have a look about. I did. I may not have bought into the concept of the human race being ruled by alien overlords, but the site made me think at the very least.

INCIDENT IN ROSWELL

In May 1995 a 17 minute black and white film of an autopsy of alien bodies, found in supposed crash in the desert outside Roswell, New Mexico in June/July 1947 was presented by a man called Ray Santilli.

From the Wiki for the incident in Roswell, which provides a quick over-view of what happened:

On July 8, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field public information office in Roswell, New Mexico, issued a press release stating that personnel from the field’s 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed “flying disc” from a ranch near Roswell, sparking intense media interest.

The following day, the press reported that Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force stated that, in fact, a radar-tracking balloon had been recovered by the RAAF personnel, not a “flying disc.”

A subsequent press conference was called, featuring debris from the crashed object, which seemed to confirm the weather balloon description. This case was quickly forgotten and almost completely ignored, even by UFO researchers, for more than 30 years.
Then, in 1978, physicist and ufologist Stanton T. Friedman interviewed Major Jesse Marcel who was involved with the original recovery of the debris in 1947. Marcel expressed his belief that the military had covered up the recovery of an alien spacecraft. His story spread through UFO circles, being featured in some UFO documentaries at the time. In February 1980, The National Enquirer ran its own interview with Marcel, garnering national and worldwide attention for the Roswell incident.

Additional witnesses added significant new details, including claims of a huge military operation dedicated to recovering alien craft and aliens themselves, at as many as 11 crash sites, and alleged witness intimidation.

In 1989, former mortician Glenn Dennis put forth a detailed personal account, wherein he claimed that alien autopsies were carried out at the Roswell base.

Glenn Dennis’s account:

“In July 1947, I was a mortician, working for the Ballard Funeral Home in Roswell, which had a contract to provide mortuary services for the Roswell Army Air Field. One afternoon, around 1:15 or 1:30, I received a call from the base mortuary officer who asked what was the smallest size hermetically sealed casket that we had in stock. He said, ‘We need to know this in case something comes up in the future.’ He asked how long it would take to get one, and I assured him I could get one for him the following day. He said he would call back if they needed one.

“About 45 minutes to an hour later, he called back and asked me to describe the preparation for bodies that had been lying out on the desert for a period of time. Before I could answer, he said he specifically wanted to know what effect the preparation procedures would have on the body’s chemical compounds, blood and tissues… I offered to come out to the base to assist with any problem he might have, but he reiterated that the information was for future use…
“Approximately an hour or an hour and 15 minutes later, I got a call to transport a serviceman who had a laceration on his head and perhaps a fractured nose. I gave him first aid and drove him out to the base. I got there around 5:00 PM.

“Although I was a civilian, I usually had free access on the base because they knew me. I drove the ambulance around to the back of the base infirmary and parked it next to another ambulance. The door was open and inside I saw some wreckage. There were several pieces which looked like the bottom of a canoe, about three feet in length. It resembled stainless steel with a purple hue, as if it had been exposed to high temperature. There was some strange-looking writing on the material resembling Egyptian hieroglyphics. Also there were two MPs present.

“I checked the airman in and went to the staff lounge to have a Coke. I intended to look for a nurse, a 2nd Lieutenant, who had been commissioned about three months earlier right out of college. She was 23 years of age at the time (I was 22). I saw her coming out of one of the examining rooms with a cloth over her mouth. She said, ‘My gosh, get out of here or you’re going to be in a lot of trouble.’ She went into another door where a Captain stood. He asked me who I was and what I was doing here. I told him, and he instructed me to stay there. I said, ‘It looks like you’ve got a crash; would you like me to get ready?’ He told me to stay right there. Then two MPs came up and began to escort me out of the infirmary. They said they had orders to follow me out to the funeral home.

“We got about 10 or 15 feet when I heard a voice say, ‘We’re not through with that SOB. Bring him back.’ There was another Captain, a redhead with the meanest-looking eyes I had ever seen, who said, ‘You did not see anything, there was no crash here, and if you say anything you could get into a lot of trouble.’ I said, ‘Hey look mister, I’m a civilian and you can’t do a damn thing to me.’ He said, ‘Yes we can; somebody will be picking your bones out of the sand.’ There was a black Sergeant with a pad in his hand who said, ‘He would make good dog food for our dogs.’ The Captain said, ‘Get the SOB out.’ The MPs followed me back to the funeral home.
“The next day, I tried to call the nurse to see what was going on. About 11:00 AM, she called the funeral home and said, ‘I need to talk to you.’ We agreed to meet at the officers club. She was very upset. She said, ‘Before I talk to you, you have to give me a sacred oath that you will never mention my name, because I could get into a lot of trouble.’ I agreed.

“She said she had gone to get supplies in a room where two doctors were performing a preliminarily autopsy. The doctors said they needed her to take notes during the procedure. She said she had never smelled anything so horrible in her life, and the sight was the most gruesome she had ever seen. She said, ‘This was something no one has ever seen.’ As she spoke, I was concerned that she might go into shock.

“She drew me a diagram of the bodies, including an arm with a hand that had only four fingers; the doctors noted that on the end of the fingers were little pads resembling suction cups. She said the head was disproportionately large for the body; the eyes were deeply set; the skulls were flexible; the nose was concave with only two orifices; the mouth was a fine slit, and the doctors said there was heavy cartilage instead of teeth. The ears were only small orifices with flaps. They had no hair, and the skin was black—perhaps due to exposure in the sun. She gave me the drawings.

“There were three bodies; two were very mangled and dismembered, as if destroyed by predators; one was fairly intact. They were three-and-a-half to four feet tall. She told me the doctors said: ‘This isn’t anything we’ve ever see before; there’s nothing in the medical textbooks like this.’ She said she and the doctors became ill. They had to turn off the air conditioning and were afraid the smell would go through the hospital. They had to move the operation to an airplane hangar.

“I drove her back to the officers’ barracks. The next day I called the hospital to see how she was, and they said she wasn’t available. I tried to get her for several days, and finally got one of the nurses who said the Lieutenant had been transferred out with some other personnel. About 10 days to two weeks later, I got a letter from her with an APO number. She indicated we could discuss the incident by letter in the future. I wrote back to her and about two weeks later the letter came back marked ‘Return to Sender—DECEASED.’ Later, one of the nurses at the base said the rumor was that she and five other nurses had been on a training mission and had been killed in a plane crash.

“Sheriff George Wilcox and my father were very close friends. The Sheriff went to my folks’ house the morning after the events at the base and said to my father, ‘I don’t know what kind of trouble Glenn’s in, but you tell your son that he doesn’t know anything and hasn’t seen anything at the base.’ He added, ‘They want you and your wife’s name, and they want your and your children’s addresses.’ My father immediately drove to the funeral home and asked me what kind of trouble I was in. He related the conversation with Sheriff Wilcox, and so I told him about the events of the previous day. He is the only person to whom I have told this story until recently.

“I had filed away the sketches the nurse gave me that day. Recently, at the request of a researcher, I tried to locate my personal files at the funeral home, but they had all been destroyed.”
