Brother sees ship and occupants...maybe more.......

When I was 5 years old I was at home with my mother sitting on the kitchen floor watching her clean up and talking to her about whatever it is 5 yr olds talk about. I remember my mom asking me about my twin brother and if I had seen him and I told her no. It was the beginning of the summer vacation in June, the weather was warm and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. All of a sudden my twin comes busting through the door with a look of terror on his face and screaming so loud and incoherently that we couldn't understand anything he was saying. My mom grabbed ahold of him and held him close to try to calm him down and when he did he told her something that to this day, I will never forget.

He told her that he was playing at the school. Winterstein school in Sacramento, California. He said he was playing in the playground and had looked up to the sky because it got "cloudy" all of a sudden. When he looked up he saw a large silver object that looked like a "school bus" with lights all around the middle part and could see "people" looking out the "windows" at him. But when he looked closer at them, he said they weren't like any "people" but had very large black eyes and were all silver. My mom got him calmed down and he went into his bedroom and slept for the rest of that day into the next day.

My brother finished high school and went into the Air Force as a Radar spec./technician. He served his tour of duty and I hadn't heard from him for nearly the whole 6 years he had served. When he got out, he came home and got in contact with the family and I invited him over. I had a chandelier that needed some work and asked if he would look at it for me. He was happy to do it. He got on the ladder and I started to ask him questions about when we were in kindergarten and when he saw the "school bus" in the sky. He affirmed everything that he had told us at the time and said he didn't know what it was and that he had in fact seen the same exact thing four times. Once again right after he had joined the Air Force while on a training ship, and another time while he was out at sea on his ship coming home from Okinawa and another time after he had bought some property in Bodega Bay, California.

I had, at the time, been reading one of Bud Hopkins books that had drawings and depictions of the "greys". I was being very careful about what I was saying as he was looking and sounding a little nervous about talking about it and I didn't want to make him too uncomfortable, yet my curiosity got the best of me and I picked up my book and showed him one of the drawings in the book of an alien with large black eyes and "dressed" in "silver". When I showed this to him, he climbed down off the ladder and bluntly told me that he didn't want to talk about it anymore and he would never talk to me about it again. He was very angry with me for bringing it up and to this day I regret showing it to him at that time. We have had very little contact since then and I don't know how I can repair the rift that has come between us.
