Standing Up To The Past
by Billy Cox

As we close out another year and hope for the best in 2012,
retired Air Force staff sergeant Bill Smith looks forward to
resuming his teaching gig at one of Columbia (Mo.) College's 34
nationwide campuses. Smith, an adjunct professor from Arlington,
Tex., covers topics as diverse as ethics and philosophy,
sociology and criminal justice. But his wide-angle interest is
in social change, due in part to what he calls his "unique

On the early morning of October 24, 1968, following several
weeks of watching strange lights maneuver across the night skies
above a nuclear missile base in Minot, N.D., Smith got an
expanded world view. A mobile "camper team" unit reported UFO
activity near a launch control facility designated Oscar-6.
Smith took a look for himself, saw the reported "large glowing
object," and phoned it in to security control with the 91st
Strategic Missile Wing.

For the next hour or two, Smith and colleagues would watch the
light - or lights - as it changed color, changed direction, and
dipped behind a treeline. Exasperated over his superiors'
ostensible indifference to this blatant incursion into
restricted air space, he tuned in with at least a small measure
of relief to radio chatter from a B-52 crew, which confirmed the
bogey from above as it made a joke of military security. No
culprits were ever held to account, in a complicated case that
would also involve trace effects of radiation, an unlocked inner
perimeter gate, and a wide open - but unmanned - personnel hatch
at an Oscar launch control center. Although Smith filed an AF-
117 report, he was ordered never to discuss the incident outside
the chain of command.
