Retired U.S. Air Force Captain David H. Schuur—whose dramatic testimony about a UFO temporarily activating his nuclear missiles at Minot AFB, North Dakota, in 1966—died on May 31, 2013. This excerpt from my book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, was earlier posted at this website but, to honor Schuur’s candor and courage, it is presented again here.
Remarkable Revelations Undercut By Distressing Disinformation

Although I was repeatedly invited—pestered, actually—by Stephen Bassett to participate in the hearing, I chose not to lend my name and credible research to the event. Over the past 40 years I have interviewed more than 140 U.S. military veterans, regarding their involvement in UFO incidents at nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those individuals participated in my September 27, 2010 "UFOs and Nukes" press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live:

One Incident Involved "Two Little Men" Allegedly Observed Near Nuclear-Armed B-52 Bombers
March 18, 2013
In 1964–65, Airman Third Class Gary L. Ames was an Air Policeman, assigned to the 42nd Combat Defense Squadron, at Loring AFB, Maine. In 2006, he told me,
I have memories of a UFO incident which occurred in late-October to mid-November 1964. At least one other AP also saw the object.
At the time of the sighting, I was posted near the east side of the runway, about 500 yards from the south end of it, which was not typical. Most of my posts were near B-52s or KC-135s on alert. But that night, I was posted along the base perimeter, about 50 yards beyond the edge of the runway, far away from alert aircraft. I was posted there due to a temporary shortage of dog handlers which usually patrolled the area.
UFOs Hovered Over Nuclear Missile Sites
March 12, 2013
The startling story, titled "What Were Those Mysterious Craft?", was published decades ago, on January 19, 1979. Based on declassified U.S. government documents, the objectively-written article by reporters Ward Sinclair and Art Harris—appearing on Page A1—provided a tantalizing peek at long-suppressed information having national security implications.
In contrast, the absurd article the Post ran in response to my September 27, 2010 UFO-Nukes Connection press conference in Washington D.C. basically ridiculed the whole idea of UFOs monitoring our missile sites and instead extolled the virtues of free cookies.
Let me explain.

On January 30, 2013, I issued my latest press release, titled "Researcher Urges U.S. Military Veterans to Divulge Their UFO Sightings at Nuclear Weapons Sites". My hope was/is that persons who had not yet gone on-the-record about their UFO experiences would contact me at [ ufohastings AT aol DOT com ].
The first to do so, Larry Rogers, has provided an unexpected glimpse into UFO activity during the period of French atomic testing in the Sahara desert in the early 1960s. I have twice interviewed Mr. Rogers on the telephone and he has provided his DD214 military service record, which verifies his presence at a U.S. Air Force base in North Africa during that era.
