I don't diagree with you about "unsupported testimony" -
generally anyway.

But having heard Velez off and on and communicating with Will
Bueche (and seeing him in TV documentaries), I think we have to
give them the benefit of the doubt.

These two guys, as Mrs. Hill before them, strike me as honest
to the point that they make themselves vulnerable to attacks by
persons (not you ) who want to dismiss alien abduction accounts
from the get-go.

Some abductees, like contactees before them, are suspect, but
not Velez, Bueche, or the late Mrs. Hill. And their claims are
intensely unique so how can one ask them to prove something
without normal frames of reference?
