This is an article regarding a U.S. Department of Defense document called “Subject: Suspicious Unknown Air Activity” (classification: CONFIDENTIAL, date: 11 November 1975) and, in addition, discussion on the U.S.government’s involvement in the UFO subject.
The mentioned U.S. Department of Defense document deals with the late 1975 UFO activity over the following military bases: Loring AFB, Maine; Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan; Malmstrom AFB, Montana; Minot AFB, North Dakotaand Canadian Forces Station, Falconbridge, Ontario, Canada.
I also reported on this news article on 22 December 2011.

The book, The UFO Cover-Up (Fawcett, Greenwood) presents evidence (Page 6) that proves that the National Military Command Center (in conjunction with the Air Force Global Weather Central (AFGWC)) investigated the 1975 Northern Tier (U.S.A. and Canada) UFO incidents. The NMCC sent a memorandum (dated 13 November 1975) to the AFGWC requesting temperature inversion data from sensors which were placed in the areas which had experienced UFO activity.
The National Military Command Center is maintained by the Department of the Air Force.

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“The National Military Command Center (NMCC) is a Pentagon command and communications center for the National Command Authority (i.e., the President of the United States and the United States Secretary of Defense). Maintained by the Department of the Air Force as the ‘DoD Executive Agent’ for NMCC logistical, budgetary, facility and systems support; the NMCC operators are in the Joint Staff’s J-3 (Operations) Directorate. ‘The NMCC is responsible for generating Emergency Action Messages (EAMs) to launch control centers, nuclear submarines, recon aircraft and battlefield commanders.’”

The U.S. Department of State document (dated 9 November 2005) read as follows:
“It is critical all embassy staff understand that they are not to discuss under any circumstance concerns DOD [U. S. Department of Defense] has with UFOs entering orbit, once again the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated.”
The document was apparently sent to a diplomat that worked at the U.S. embassy in Kiev, Ukraine.

The article reports on a 17 March 1967 Great Falls, Montana, UFO incident. The UFO was sighted by three sheriff’s deputies and several other people. The UFO hovered north and west of Gore Hill for a while before flying west and disappearing, according to Undersheriff Frank Takala. The UFO was yellow in colour and emitted a red glow from the top and bottom.
Gore Hill is a mountain in Great Falls, Montana.
The article also mentions that UFOs were sighted near Vaughn, Fort Bentonand Choteau on Tuesday (probably 14 March 1967) night.

Ground Saucer Watch (GSW), a Phoenix, Arizona, organisation, used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to get the U.S. government to release UFO documents. GSW managed to get hold of many important UFO documents through the organisation’s lawsuits against the government. The lawsuits were handled by lawyer Peter Gersten, according to the book, The UFO Cover-Up (written by Lawrence A. Fawcett and Barry J. Greenwood).
The brothers William H. and J. A. Spaulding founded Ground Saucer Watch in 1957.

The article reports on two 1896 Oakland, California, UFO sightings. The unknown objects (or the same object) (described by the journalist as “the strange aerial navigator”) was sighted by Case Gilson, Gilson’s friends and Percy Drew.
Quote from the article:
“ ‘The airship was moving very rapidly from the southeast toward Lorin, and not a light was visible,’ said Gilson. ‘It was about 1000 or 1500 feetin the air and looked like a great black cigar with a fish-like tail. If it had side propellers they were revolving so rapidly that I could not see them. The body was at least a hundred feet long, and attached to it was a triangular tail, one apex being attached to the main body. The surface of the airship looked as if it were made of aluminum, which exposure to wind and weather had turned dark. I saw all this distinctly, and I am willing to take any oath to the truth of what I say.’
‘The airship went at a tremendous speed. As it neared Lorin it turned quickly and disappeared in the direction of San Francisco. At half-past 8 we saw it again, when it took about the same direction and disappeared. ‘It was an airship; of that I am convinced.’
Gilson and his friends saw the airship twice during last Thursday (26 November 1896) evening at 8 and 8:30 o’clock. The skies were perfectly clear, and a strong northwest wind was blowing. The airship was moving rapidly from the southeast toward the north in the teeth of the wind. No light was visible, merely the weird, peculiar body silhoueted against the clear skies. Case Gilson, his brother, and the Petan brothers distinctly saw the strange sight, and Gilson describes its appearance very graphically.
Gilson is also an amateur astronomer and declares that he could not mistake a star or a cloud for an airship.
Percy Drew was another individual favored with a glimpse of the airship. He says it visited Oakland Saturday (28 November 1896) night. It then carried a red light and moved with its usual quickness. Both young men agree that the ship was of enormous size, measuring at least 100 feet in length.”
