The ex-marine came forward to share what he and his comrades who were stationed with him at the base experienced, way back between 1968 – 69.
While he cannot remember the specific dates, he does go on to talk about the UFO’s being 50 to 100 feet across. The interview was released on the MUFON website, describing many sightings they had witnessed at the time, and while they openly discussed it on the base, they were forbidden to mention it in public.
‘All of us Marines were amazed at the amount of UFO activity over and around this base,’ the witness said. ‘Virtually every night UFOs were flying overhead with altitudes of less than 300 feet.’
The way the anonymous witness describes the craft though is not the traditional saucer/disc shaped kind, rather ’50 to 100 feet across, but to the naked eye came off as a dull, hazy hull with a small red light trailing behind it’.
‘There were large blue lights moving around after their landing in the ocean and then slowly dimming down as they obviously descended deeper.’
Check out one of the detailed stories:
‘It was approximately 7p.m. (dark) when I stepped out of the guard shack and looked across the fence at the deserted Cuban guard house when something caught my eye,’ the former Marine said.
‘Behind the Cuban guard shack near the ground was a huge white cloud with a blue/white, baby blue pulsating light in the middle of it.’
Bewildered by the sighting, he asked of his comrades what they were seeing as it passed over the shack in their direction.
He remembers seeing the UFO that looked like a ‘big beautiful cloud with a blue and white pulsating light’ quietly hovering over their heads.
A few minutes later the silence was broken by someone yelling ‘get the hell out of there’.
A sergeant was yelling from the observation tower, ordering them to vacate the area.
The Marine and other soldier walked towards the barracks just 200 feet away, which allowed them to observe the action from a safe distance.
They saw Intelligence officers pull up to the scene with what looked like a film crew that recorded the alien vehicle while it hovered for about three hours before shooting off into the west.
‘The UFO traveled about quarter of a mile, stopped for a moment, then like a bullet, shot straight up in the air until it disappeared,’ he said.
What say you? A genuine eyewitness statement or just another hoax?
