Alabama - 01-11-11

Strange lights were reported to have been seen by many people in the area of Newton, Alabama. Many 911 calls came in.

My husband, who works on Fort Rucker, called me to say that some military operations were shut down because of these lights.

People he works with reported they had seen many black government vehicles rushing to the Newton area where these lights were being reported.

One co-worker said he found his truck had been moved unexplainably to the end of his driveway when he woke up this morning.

My husband also said the military was already trying to keep a lid on this event, and telling people not to talk about it.

There has been nothing in the news at this time. I am still seeking more information.

Information on Fort Rucker

The Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker, Alabama, is located in the southeast corner of lower Alabama. Fort Rucker is approximately 80 miles south of Montgomery and 20 miles northwest of Dothan. Florida's Gulf Coast lies 80 miles to the south.

The communities of Enterprise, Daleville, and Ozark are west, south and east of the post, respectively and serve as our three main gates. Fort Rucker is located in the southeast corner of lower Alabama. It is approximately 40 minutes from the Florida State line and 45 minutes from the Georgia state line.

Ft. Rucker Area

The post covers about 64,500 acres of countryside in an area known as the "Wiregrass", named for a wild grass peculiar to the region. Much of the main post is in Dale County, with the remaining government-owned and leased acreage in Coffee, Geneva and Houston counties. Most of the countryside is rolling and wooded. An abundance of lakes and streams and proximity to Gulf of Mexico make this area a fisherman's paradise.

The current mission of the Army Aviation Center is to develop the aviation force for its worldwide mission. This includes developing concepts, doctrine, organization, training, leader development, materiel, and soldier requirements. Also provide resident and nonresident aviation maintenance, logistics and leadership training in support of the total force and foreign nations for the sustainment of joint and combined aviation operations.
