In 1967 I was a UFO investigator. I was doing sightings in and around the Massachusetts and New Hampshire area.
From Exeter and beyond I was doing UFO investigations for CAPER and APRO. I was also working with Ray Fowler on several other cases locally in the
Northern Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire area.
I was a noted UFO investigator with several local police stations and into New Hampshire as well. So if there was a report they would call me up.
One day I got home from work at my usual time around 4:30 PM. My wife gave me a card from a Colonel from Loring AFB in Maine. I gave him a call and he
was not there. The phone rang and rang but no one answered it. Remember I had his card.
I had called Ray Fowler about it as he lived about 30 minutes from me. He never heard of the man before. So I called the next day. I got a secretary there. I
told her a colonel had called me. She told me there was no one there by that name. I read her the card that this Colonel gave my wife, but she insisted there
was no colonel there by that name.
This was a time that I had some enigmatic happenings around and through my house and area. Mysterious cars and sinister cars would follow me. John Keel
along with Ramona Clark were working with me on these enigmatic happenings and the black Cadillac that was following me.
But the man from Loring AFB, according to the secretary was not there, and had never worked there. I called Ray and asked him if he knew of this Colonel at
Loring, he had not. But the weirdest thing was about to happen.
The next day I called the same number and an Air Force officer answered. He told me the Colonel was not in and I could leave a message. I did not as I thought
this whole thing was very strange. I told the man to have the colonel call me the next day after 4:00 PM, but the call never came.
When I called back, I asked for the colonel and this man said the colonel was out. I asked him what this officer wanted. He left the phone and after about 5-10
minutes he came back to talk to me. This officer asked me what I knew about the craft that hovered and tried to infiltrate Loring AFB!. I asked him why was he
He informed me that my name along with Rays was given to the Colonel. I told him something to the affect that I knew nothing was happening up in Maine. This
man insisted that this colonel never visited me and asked how I got this number. I told him a military man gave my wife a military business card to give to me and
I was told to call him back.
I called Ray and he never heard of this colonel or he never received any call or anybody from the base ever came to his house.
From 1967 to the present I never heard from anybody from Loring. Much later Ray Fowler told me about the Loring sightings and the alert that they, the
military, had that year and some of the details.
But I will never know who came to my door or gave my wife that card. I did see a military car around my city
that I lived in, but even tracing the government license plate was impossible.
Loring AFB said they did not have any plates with that number on it. HMM?
Who or what visited me that warm summer of 1967? I will never know!
