I had just gotten off duty and was eating breakfast when my operations officer came searching for me. I by any chance talk to anyone last night about I go into the rest of the conversation. Anyway, I was informed I was not to discuss UFOs with anyone again.

It was made very clear. Of course, I was ribbed about it for some time. When pilots came in to file their flight plans, they would ask, there any UFOs flying around tonight, Airman that I know of, Now, there is more to the story that may help get me rescued. At the same time, maybe the same night, there were sightings over the capital. Now, I imagine it would be this that ev- eryone was talking about and not my deboggle that started the Air Force to launch a prolong investi- gation of UFOs.

It was known as the Blue Book Project. The details were kept secret until 1969 when it was declassified and made public. You can purchase the Blue Book online to see what the Air Force came up with.
