Students read a wide range of print and nonprint texts to build an understanding of texts, of themselves, and of the cultures of the United States and the world; to acquire new information; to respond to the needs and demands of society and the workplace; and for personal fulfillment.
Can you tell me what it was like? Let me tell you that When you first found out I've known this for over 40 years. When I first began to get some information of what was involved, that to me was like a drug addict.
You know I've never taken drugs. Well, I smoke a little, and I drink coffee, and I have a little bourbon now and then. But I tell you, I've never taken hard drugs. It was almost like an addict, once I learned, officially, from government documents what was taking place.
My God, I couldn't get enough! I couldn't learn enough. I was voracious to get more and more and more. I became a nuisance to my friends.
It's a wonder I was able to retire honorably without ending up in Fort Leavenworth, which is a disciplinary barracks, by the way. It's a prison, military prison. It's amazing that I've gotten to this point in my life without going to jail.
Would you say that in your career as a military Yes, I had been given a Cosmic Top Secret document. Which was and still is the highest security classification that NATO has.
Did that mean to you that you were going to be able to be let in on the secrets of our extraterrestrial relations with other planets? No, it simply meant that I was given access to a military document, a study that NATO conducted from to I'd had a Top Secret clearance when I arrived, which you had to have to get to that particular assignment.
It was a rather choice assignment, by the way, Paris in those days. I took my family, my kids went to high school in Paris. It was a choice assignment, and not everybody got that assignment.
You were selected and you were analyzed and you had to have so many little pluses in your box to get that. I know but, Top Secret way back then? I mean were you naive? Did you have no idea I had some suspicions, and I was curious about the extraterrestrial issues. So you had some suspicions way back in Well, I went into the Army in I paid attention, and I used to read a lot, and I always had a nagging suspicion that there was something more going on out there than we were being told.
Did you know about underground bases at that point? No, not at that time. It opened my mind to the point that, Oh my God, this is real!
Not only did I see reports and studies and analysis, and photographs, there were autopsy reports that I was able to study. Because there had been crashes and retrievals of bodies, and all the rest of it. So how many pages were in the report? Oh, the study itself was about an inch and a half thick.
Oh, so it was like a book? Well, it was supplemented, supported by about 10 inches of appendices and, what do they call them There were ten of them.
So the study had laid out the problem, as any military study will do. It laid out the problem, purpose and the meaning of the study and some of the conclusions of the study.Lesson 1.
