It has been 10 years since this has happened... so i am unsure of the exact date...<br> I do remember exactly who was with me and all the events that happened that night...<br> <br>

In 2008 i was a 14E Patriot Fire Control Enhanced Operator/maintainer  in the U.S. Army ..<br> <br> I was on the  maintainer side... i fixed the phased array radar and all the other equipment associated with the patrior pac2 and pac3 missle defense system...<br> <br> 2008 we went on a convoy from FT BLISS texas, to holloman AFB in NEW MEXICO...<br> <br> We were scheduled to begin a joing operation with the airforce the day after we were to arrive at holloman ...however this would end up not occuring...<br> <br>

Upon our arrival the first night and emplacing the equipment the radar was not working... <br> I was a pv2 and with my section sgt we began performing maintenance on the radar...<br> <br> It wasnt till around 2am that I was able to fix the radar...it was at this time I moved back into the engagement control station to find my section sgt. Sleeping..<br>  I left him like that while i powered up the system and began radiating ...<br> <br> Shortly after successfully "burning" i began to pick up a track with "jamming" capabilities... meaning whatever this track was ...was able to try and jam radars...the track looks different on the screen when its doing this ... <br> <br> Then i noticed how fast this object was moving and i couldnt believe it... i cant remember exact speeds but they were off  the charts...we are talking 5 digit mph...mach 20+<br> <br> I know the secret speed of patriot pac3 missiles and its supposed to be fastest moving object on earth and this "jamming track" was significantly faster .. not only that ..<br> <br> This track also was going from close to 1000 feet in altitude  to almost outer space in matter of seconds and travelling all over my screen ..<br> <br> i woke up my sgt and told him what i was seeing ...<br> He coulsnt believe his eyes and began printing off a report... not even a minute later there was a knock on the engagement control station ..<br> <br> It was airforce military police ..they removed me and began talking to my sgt.<br> I witnesaed him.burning the report ...and our whole battery was woken up an escorted out of the field and to some barracks on post<br> <br> <br> We stayed there for a day or two before being told to pack up and head back to ft bliss without ever actually participating in the joint force operation ..<br> <br> I never came out with my story as it is very real and i had maintained. A secret security clearance ...also i was nervous for obvious reason .... I no longer have a security clearance and feel its time to share my story ..<br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br>
