Subject: Military Retirees & Secrecy

I have been following the recent discussion regarding the
consequences that might occur if a retired military person was
to break their secrecy agreement.

The experience that I have is with my partner's dad, who is a
retired Lt. Colonel, USAF intelligence. In response to questions
about UFO's and the involvement of the Air Force, he will only
say that alot has gone on and to talk about it would put him,
and us, in terrible danger. This doesn't sound like a fear of
loosing his pension, to me. This is a man who started in the
Army and became Air Force in 1947. The Air Force subsequently
paid for him to get a graduate degree in communications at Yale.

My partner describes a childhood of many moves to and from
numerous Air Force bases, and long absences of dad on secret
assignments, when contact could only be made through his CO.
Then there was the discovery of one of dad's notebooks during a
childhood search of his desk. This notebook contained drawings
that at the time, my partner thought were cartoon people, but
now recognizes them as "greys", as well as what seemed to be a
symbol type writing. This occurred in 1956.

We have all found his refusal to tell us anything to be
incredibly frustrating. He is now in his 80's, but insists that
what he knows will go to the grave with him. He is adamant that
it is not safe for him to speak. Fear of lost pension? I don't
think so. This is also a man who was rah, rah military, and now
vehemently hates the military. Curious.

I suspect that those who have spoken, don't have the "real
skinny". Those that do, will probably never reveal what they

In the hope of the revelation of the true story,
