     One day, we were instructed to complete, in class, a manual and test on Air Force security. Working diligently from page to page of the booklet, dated 1 January 1968 and entitled, “Air Force Standard Communications Security Education Program (Transmission Security),” I at last reached page 56–where I suddenly encountered a strange sight indeed. Under the heading, “Proper communications Security Procedures,” was a drawing depicting two unmistakably saucer-shaped craft, armed and firing no less. Below the drawing a caption read: “Information concerning radically new and extremely important weapons or equipment should be classified Top Secret.

and sabotage-alert forces, occurred at installations in Montana, Michigan and Maine, and led to extensive but unsuccessful Air Force attempts to track and detain the objects.

Air Force and Defense Department records variously describe the objects as helicopters, aircraft, unknown entities and brightly lighted, fast-moving vehicles that hovered over nuclear weapons storage areas and evaded all pursuit efforts.
