Frederick Meiwald Source: Frank Warren's UFO Chronicles http://tinyurl.com/98enozd 10-23-12 Wednesday, October 24, 2012 Former Nuke Missile Commander, Colonel Frederick Meiwald (Ret) Passes Away at 70 Editor's Note =96 Colonel Frederick Meiwald (Ret) succumbed to cancer on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012. Amongst his many accolades was a 28-year career in the Air Force, in part as a Missile Combat Crew Commander (MCCC), serving with Bob Salas. We salute his service to our country as well as his courage in corroborating the incident where 10 nuclear missiles under his charge (Oscar Flight, Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana) became inoperative during reported UFO activity over the launch control center (LCC) in March of 1967. -=96FW In Memory Of Col. Frederick Meiwald By Bob Salas www.spiralgalaxy.org Col. Fred Meiwald passed away in early August, 2012 after a battle with cancer. I knew Fred only during brief periods of his life but he is someone I won=92t soon forget. This remembrance is to honor a good friend and a man of character. I first met Fred in 1966. We became linked up as a Minuteman I missile crew in October of that year, passing our evaluation with high scores. In fact, Fred and I were one of the top rated crews in the 341st Strategic Missile Wing, Malmstrom AFB, Montana. =46rom our first meeting, it was clear to me that he was a highly intelligent and dedicated officer. He had already served on missile crew duty with the Atlas I missile; working closely with him for nearly a year, I can attest to the fact that he was a consummate professional when it came to our duties as a missile crew. Fred was with me at Oscar flight during our 1967 encounter with a UFO that disabled all ten of our missiles. I have documented that event in Faded Giant. Later that year, I became a crew commander and Fred was bumped =91upstairs=92 to the Wing Command Post and we sort of lost track of each other.
