I found this video quite interesting, it points to signioficant UFO activity over US and Russian Nuclear sites during the Cold War and beyond. The UFO's were even closing missiles down and seemed to be acctually warning us at the time. Of course it was also covered up at the time, but information has now been released and US Military Personnel have actually come forward to tell of their experiences.

In the fall of 1959, my squad was part of a night, compass training exercise in the Camp Pendleton boonies. Realizing that we were ahead of schedule, we decided to take a break, and all 13 of us assumed a horizontal position, with our eyes fixed upon the clear night sky.

No need to report what we saw, as it is described perfectly in the video at 17:32.

I doubt if there were any nuclear missiles on base, but Fallbrook NWS was right next door. Naval air-launched missiles were stored there; who knows what else, certainly not me.

I have seen NASA aircraft that are shaped just like flying saucers, so maybe they can stop on a dime, too.

Really? I worked for them for over 40 years and never saw an aircraft that was shaped like a flying saucer.

There was something called the Avrocar that was a joint Canadian/American military venture that had a saucer-shaped craft, but it never worked and was shut down. I don't think NASA had anything to do with it. I've seen "pictures" of a large, circular aircraft allegedly from the Air Force but pretty sure those were fakes.

My company had a contract with NASA, and I had access to the hangars. However, I never saw anything in person that didn't look like a normal aircraft, although many were smaller than most other aircraft I saw.

Tomorrow I'll try to find a photo of the NASA flying saucer I was thinking of when I posted. In the meantime, here is one that might fit the bill:

I remember a guy on Art Bell's show giving a detailed rundown of what he experienced and saw being debriefed at Area 51. It was quite laughable.

Totally unrelated, I always find it funny when someone posts a 'serious' answer in threads like this, especially detailing seemingly-ridiculous things they allegedly witnessed. I always picture Mr. Furley sitting there at the laptop typing the story, pausing to snort, puff out his chest, and clutch his belt buckle for a second before thinking up more 'details' to add.

How about the CWAC?

It was an MOS I eventually got out of. I enjoyed other duties like duty driver, mail clerk, etc...
