  1. I found a very strange object inside what I believe is a rock. About four months ago I was metal detecting in an area just south west of downtown Calgary. I got a signal and dug down about 7 or 8 inches down. When I used my pin pointer detector to look for the source of the signal, I soon figured out it was coming from a large rock. My vibra probe was vibrating all over this rock, and it was pretty heavy for its size. So I took it home and set it on my dresser, where it sat for the last 4 months. A few days ago I decided to show my friends the rock. When I picked it up and turned it over, I noticed what looks like something made of metal. But only a small amount was exposed, and I believe there’s much more inside. A couple of my friends think the rock is cement. I’m hoping it’s a rock with a great secret inside. PS can I send you pictures of the rock.

  2. Great interview, it is great to see veteran private investigators on the hunt for UFO’s. One day I am hoping to have enough time to dedicate to some serious research.

  3. Bill, My name is Rick Carter. I am 62 years old. I remember a little about the incident at the Hawk missile base in Key West. I was in the the 4th grade at Sigsbee Park Elementary on the military base in Key West in 1967. My Dad, 1st SGT Ralph F. Carter was stationed at the Hawk missile base at the time. I remember two significant incidents that occurred while we were there in 1967. One incident was a soldier shooting another soldier on base that involved an affair between the other soldier’s wife. The soldier who did the shooting got a very light sentence because of testimony from a Chaplain Southerland at the trial. The other incident was when my Dad was called to the missile site and stayed there for about a week. He called home several times but this was unusual because the missile site was only about 15 minutes from our housing.He never talked very much about work until after he retired. He did state on a few occasions that a MiG21 had been shot down. I read your story a few weeks ago and it all made sense and explained a lot of things. My Dad, now 86 years old has been sick recently so I went to see him in Anderson, SC.yesterday (Sunday, March 10, 2016. I asked him if he knew about the UFO on radar and he did not. He did re state that a MiG 21 had been shot down and there was a lot of friction between us and the Cubans. He said he knew it wasn’t our HAWK missiles that shot it down but didn’t know who else was responsible. The only other big news back in the day was when a Cuban pilot defected and flew a MiG15 Fagot to Homestead but that was a different year. I think that particular MiG is on display at Wright Patterson AFB. Dad did say that a lot of RADAR operators saw and heard things that were not explainable. Dad was shipped off to Cu Chi Vietnam in the fall of 1967. He made it back home after a 1 year tour and was then shipped to Ft. Bliss, TX to another HAWK site. He retired an E-8 in 1969. We were still in El Paso when they landed on the Moon .My Dad is a devoutly religious Southern Baptist Minister and in fact was already in the ministry in 1967. He was Pastor at Big Coppitt Baptist church at the same time he was 1st SGT at the HAWK missile base. He is very skeptical to a lot of BS but is very reluctant to voice doubt about your testimony. I believe you 100%. please feel free to contact me any time if it would be helpful to you. I can set you up with my Dad as well.
