This is my sighting non sighting: I was stationed and NAS Monterey. I was a crash Fireman there for around two years: One day after we had gone to eat the evening meal and were back playing volley ball in the hanger one of the guys sighted this UFO directly over the runway 28 and every one went out to watch it and they were all pointing at the object and describing it in great detail. I could see NOTHING AT ALL. The dispatcher wanted to see and he was calling me so I relived him and he went and saw the object. While I was on the desk I called the tower (Aircraft Controller) he told me that he could not see the object with his eyes but that it was on the GCA radar. I also called the radio station and the ask all the people to go out and look and see fi they could see it. There was one other fireman who was unable to see the object. That night after the sighting the firehouse was a buzz with talk and speculation but when the next day came none of these witnesses could remember it, only me and the other man who did not see the Object could remember the incident. The next day when we went back on duty (we were on 24 and 24 off) Naval intelligence officers were there in the rec. room and they interviewing the other man who did not see the object and he was in there about an hour then it was my turn. I went in and the man ask me what did you see? So I started describing what all the other men had described and after I got all through he said again, Now what did you see? After about the third time, "DU" I got the message and said, "I didn't see anything Sir" and he said to me, "that's right now don't forget it". He did say to me, "you didn't call the radio station from here did you"? I said, "I didn't see anything", He said, "that's right; carry on Sailor".
The following hours that day I and the other man who did not see the UFO, we were transferred out of the fire department and on to the flight line. (This is very unusual for trained Firefighters to be transferred) I got orders to Pacific Missal Range (The Naval Air Weapons Station, Point Mugu) I was a crash Firefighter again on St. Nicolas Island in the Channel Islands of California.
