Subject: NICAP'S The Year Of The UFO On Blog

Dear List Readers,

Since beginning a UFO-related blog in April, I've tried to add a
mix of UFO history and my now, mostly, past-tense relationship
with the subject. However, this week I've also begun posting an
old gem of great historical and reference significance. From my
files as a NICAP member I've extracted and scanned "The Year of
the UFO," NICAP's 1972 monthly offering listing significant UFO-
related events in calender format. After 35 years in a box, all
six pages (with a calender month on each side) survived well,
and by the end of June I expect to post all 12 months. January's
page is already posted.

I discovered this week that The J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO
Studies also features this series on a NICAP-related compact
disc, a mammoth collection drawn from an extensive NICAP
document file currently in the possession of CUFOS, and I also
mentioned this in an entry just prior to the January calender.

I suggest you print the pages and keep them at your fingertips.
Then, when you conveniently find a bit of UFO history of
interest to you, just consult your favorite search engine (in
this case, the NICAP site search engine - linked on my blog -
may be the best source) and type in the date and key words.

But wait, there's a bonus! When you stop by my UFO blog, be sure
to check the link for my other blog, Robert Barrow's Air
Force, where you can both see some old photos of me when I
looked like A Classic Geek, and you can read a little about my
four Air Force years, too. Was I a dashing pilot, protecting the
world from both friend and foe? Was I a general at the Pentagon,
arming the world for international battles? Was I a leader among
men, building an Air Force the likes of which every military
unit in the world envied?

Heck no, I was an enlistee working in the medical corps. That's
right, I was part of the U.S. Air Force medical corps, just
like... just like... (Hold on, I need to have a little talk with
myself... say it, just say it! I can't, the words won't... Say
it! Say it! No, please, I don't want the world to know. It's not
my fault... You Must! Say it! Just get it out, you'll feel
better! Oh god, alright... ).

I was a member of the U.S. Air Force medical corps... just...
like... Art Bell. There, I've said it, and may neither history,
Satan, nor Royce Myers judge me harshly!
