Reported: 7/8/1998 05:53
Posted: 11/1/1998
Location: Monterey Bay/Fort Ord Rifle Range, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:25 minutes
Just before sun down (sun still shinning) hovering over the bay it was metallic in color,very shiney. It later moved slowly over the rifle range and then a row of colored lites appeared around the bottom of it before it disappeared. There was nothing on TV or papers. With the military base and Language Institute being there, I know a lot of people had to see it. Yes, I've had abduction experiences as a child and adult. I even went to a shrink in the mid 70's just to tell this, and never went back due to being in law enforcement and my need to just tell someone and maybe get an answer.

I believe it was summer 1965-1967, I don't remember having to attend school. We were leaving our house on FT Ord to drive to a store in Seaside, when we observed a large shiney metallic object hovering over MontereyBay. My brothers and I watched it out of the car window until we returned from the store and then sat in the yard watching as other neighbors watched also. After hovering over the bay for awhile, it slowly moved over to the rifle range and I guess it hovered for approx 10 minutes, a row of colored lites appeared around the bottom of it (the sun had not quite set) and then it disappeared. My brother had called the TV station (channel 4 or 8) but they didn't know anything. I know that with the Monterey Airport being nearby, FT Ord and the Navy Language Institute being based on the Monterey Peninsula; some of those people had to see it too. It was not a plane or weather balloon! It stayed in one place to long before moving, and the sun did reflect off of it, the sun moved, it didn't. I'm almost 46yrs old. I can still remember that day, I don't really talk about it. I'm a military brat (my day did 20yrs), I'm an AirForce Vet. I've worked in LawEnforcemnet,Airline Industry, collge educ., teaching, and now I'm in Law Enforcement in Georgia. My husbandjust retired 20yrs Mil. I've tried to explain it all away over the years through religion. No, I don't attend any sort of religious services. I believe in God, but I also know what I've experienced over the course of my life is real too. I always knew when they were coming. They always came in the fall time of the year. I'd get ear ringing an then paralized, but my mind was very much aware. They materialized out of thin air and then I was some place else. I seem to have been the only one in my family who has been abducted. One of my brothers who is now 42, had an experience as a toddler, that I'll never forget. He was standing in his crib screaming that the big eyed dogs were afer him, my parents had to rush him to Walter Reed Army Hosp. in Wash.DC (my dad was stationed in Va.) he was hysterical and couldnt be put down on the floor. I remember getting a sneak peek at him while he was in the Hosp. he had white patches on both eyes, he was never the same again after that. I could go on, but this is not what you want to hear.
