As I reported in my first submission, I was standing guard, with a Pvt. Rodriguez. And noticed a fireball similar to the one I witnessed in Pittsburgh. And as I reported it to my drill sargent, he thought I was a lunatic. Then, just about 10 meters outside his tent I viewed an object stealthily coming above me. It would stop directly over my head, as if it were observing me, and I would stand there just looking back at it. Originally, it had lights on, and I stood ther just looking and thinking. I was armed and never once did I think of shooting at the object. For me it was all time had stood still for this brief moment. The object turned it's lights off and stayed hovering above the trees and me for a few more seconds and then it just suddenly took off at a speed unimaginable. Then, i didn't understand it, but today I would consider it a blessing, to view these objects. And I would live all these years never forgetting. The siting in Pgh. and in Ga are just two of many I would go on to witness.. My next siting would occur in Texas, some time later, at Lake Belton, in Belton County, TX. This siting was a cigar shaped object and looked like a lit up bus. There was no sound as it passed over head. Then, as with now there was no known technology, that could explain these events. I know, firsthand, because I was in the Military Intelligence community at the time and viewed all known Strategic Initiative Technologies, under the then Jimmy Carter, (Carter) Administration. I would then and now still look to the skies, for more events i have witnessed in my youth.

In Georgia the shape was a fireball at first. And upon my closer encounter, it was rectangular in shape. It had lights brighter than the new halogen lights of today. And when i first haeard of the new stealth bomber, i looked forward to seeing it's shape. i felt it wpould maybe appear to be the rectangular shape I had witnessed earlier in my life, but it wasn't. And I would imagine that the lights that folded into the craft I had witnessed in Georgia, were not there on the stealh bomber. Rodriguez was from America, probably from the western half of it then. Where he might be today is unknown to me. I'm sure he never forgot this night, in GA, either.
