What happened to Guard 2?

Yesterday* I posted some details of my meeting with the other witness to my sighting.

Mike and I speculated on why the guard at Pad 2, between us, claimed he did not see what either Mike or I saw.  Mike saw the bright light emanating from the front quarter panel of a seemingly stationary aircraft.  I saw a full-on spaceship.  There is no mistaking it.  Mike thought Guard 2 might have fallen asleep.  I am not so sure about that.

Sleeping on Guard Duty

Even if you take into account that he might have sat down and nodded off for a second, the benches that were provided for us had no backs.  He would have had to lay down on the ground which was cold hard-packed dirt, in order to get some real z's.

I have always thought that sleeping on guard duty was about the worst thing you could do in the military, short of maybe fragging a commander on the battlefield or deserting.  I am reading now on Reddit and other message boards that maybe it is more prevalent than I had thought.  A lot of people joke about it and the punishments for it may not be that severe, depending on whether or not any harm was caused.

My perception on this may be tainted by the fact that I received an Article 15 for sleeping in Basic Training on a day when I spent most of my time standing up in the back of a classroom in order to stay awake.  I even got down and did push-ups several times to stay awake.  It was a stiff punishment for something I do not think I did and which I definitely tried my hardest not to do.  I was certain I never fell asleep during training that day but one of my drill sergeants said I closed my eyes for a few seconds and he wrote me up for it and put me on restriction.  Since then I have been hyper-vigilant about staying awake when I am supposed to.  But maybe not everyone cares about this as much as I do because they did not have that experience.
Contractor's Bench
A Typical Contractor's Bench

That notwithstanding, my argument against the possibility that Guard 2 fell asleep is that, for one thing, the benches that were provided for us were what I call a Contractor's Bench.  I do not know if Guard 2 even had a bench but if he did it would likely have been just like the one I sat on.  A Contractor's Bench is something you slap together with scrap wood.  It is built so hastily it may not be balanced, so if you do not sit on it the right way it will rock and may even fall over.  It has no back so if you were to fall asleep while sitting on it you would fall off.

Now I have a lot of experience with sleeping in odd places and situations.  I used to sleep on the subway on my way to work.  I have the ability to sleep while sitting without falling over or snapping my neck.  I would not fall over or wake up with my head on a stranger's shoulder and I always woke up just in time to get off at my stop.  But that is on a seat with a back to lean against and other people's shoulders wedging you in place, not by yourself on a rickety bench.

Can you Sleep While Standing?

I also have the experience of having fallen asleep while standing several times in Basic Training.  I fell asleep in the chow line once and dropped my ID card.  Someone in the line picked it up and pocketed it while I was out and I had to get a new card.  I once fell asleep while standing at parade rest during a military parade.  The guy to my right started pushing on me and said, "C'mon Marceau, let's go!"

I looked to my left and the rest of my platoon was marching away.  I caught up and then turned my head to the guy who was now behind me and said, "It's over already?"
He replied, "What are you talking about?  We've been here for two hours."
It seemed like five minutes to me because I was sound asleep the entire time.  Maybe it was not two full hours but it was definitely much longer than five minutes.

So OK, it is possible to fall asleep on a rickety bench.  But the circumstances behind me sleeping while standing were that I was in Basic Training, getting 4 hours of sleep a night, burning thousands of calories per day.  There were good reasons for me to fall asleep while standing.  I have never been able to do that since then, no matter how tired I have been.  Our Annual Training was nothing like Basic Training.  It was more like camping.  It was not that bad.  I cannot see the work we did causing anyone to be unable to keep their eyes open on a short guard duty - and we were only a few minutes into the shift.

A more likely scenario than sleeping while sitting was that maybe Guard 2 purposely laid down on the ground and took a nap.  But the ground was uneven hard-packed dirt.  The cold and the rocks would have been uncomfortable to lay on.  It would also have been a much greater risk, to lay down.  If a senior NCO or Officer came rolling down the road or snuck up on you, you would get a severe reprimand.  It is one thing to be sitting and then nod off.  You could always say you were looking at something on the ground, or something, and maybe even pop up on your feet before anyone noticed you had your head down.  But if you are on the ground it would be harder to cover up what you were doing there, "Oh hey, Sarge.  I was just, uh... checking the treetops for thieves... on my back... with my eyes closed..."

All of that notwithstanding, the bigger issue is that we were warned to be on the lookout for civilians who might sneak on post and try to steal ammo.  Our driver told us that it had in fact happened the last time our unit did Annual Training at that location.  I would not learn the details on this until later on, that my dad was on duty when that happened.  But that is a story for another post.  At any rate, we were on high alert because of the distinct possibility that we would be robbed.  For me, that alone was enough to keep me awake and alert.

With all of that put together, how could Guard 2 NOT have seen what Mike and I saw?  Based on Mike's account of how long he saw the light I estimate there was about a fifteen minute period where the ship was either directly over Pad 2 or between Pads 2 and 3 (my location).  It would have been right over Guard 2, or very nearby, for up to fifteen minutes before gliding over my way.  How do you not see that?

By the way, it was huge.  It was larger than the one acre clearing I sat in.  And it glided slowly right over the treeline.  If you were anywhere near it, it was clearly visible.

How did Guard 2 not see it?  What happened?

What happened?

Alien Contact 

I think they got him.

Maybe he pointed his weapon at the ship and was viewed as a threat.  Or maybe he was spotted watching the ship by the creatures who were flying it and they wanted to make sure he did not report them.  Or maybe they were just curious about him.  But something happened which caused the occupants of the ship to either freeze Guard 2 or maybe they even brought him aboard.  I can only speculate.  Whatever it was, at the end they somehow erased his memory of the incident.

I know it is a stretch.  With our current technology and understanding of medicine it is not possible for humans to do something like that to other humans.  But it is also not possible for us to silently hover right over a tree line and then zip into space in a streak of light.  So we are dealing with a civilization which is thousands, possibly millions of years ahead of us.  It is plausible that if they possess the technology to create a spaceship with those capabilities they also possess the technology and understanding of biology to freeze people and erase parts of their memory.

We will likely never know for sure because neither Mike nor I can remember who Guard 2 was and I doubt anyone in our reserve unit kept records of who did what that night.  It was twenty-six years ago.

Working purely with logic, however, given the fact that intentionally sleeping on the cold dirt during guard duty (when we knew that civilians had raided the ammo in the past) or accidentally nodding off on a rickety bench on what was essentially a camping trip, is so highly unlikely, you have to allow for other options.  What other option could there be than that the spaceship, which the two guys on either side of Guard 2 saw, did something to him?

Radio Ga Ga

Fate has a funny way of finding you just when you need it to - for better or for worse.  Sometimes it's when things can't get any worse, the other shoe drops.  Other times, just when you need a piece of the puzzle to fall in place, it does.  And just like that, now I'm ready to start signing on sponsors for my podcast.  I may begin broadcasting as early as October 23.

Yesterday was one of those fateful days, in a good way.  As I've been preparing this upcoming podcast one of the biggest struggles has been the technical aspect of producing the show.  The first interview last week went great but the sound and video quality was horrible.  Despite the name you can't produce a  high-quality Pod-cast on an i-Pod or other handheld device.  You really need a studio.

I toyed around with the idea of using a local cable channel to host the show at.  My mom volunteers at one and she introduced me to the station manager.  He was willing to train me and a crew to use the equipment, all I needed to do was to put together a crew.  It sounded great.  But after talking to one of my other podcast buddies last week I decided it would be too much work for a small crew of volunteers with day jobs to do.

I was resigned to the inevitability that I would have to produce a low-budget, low-quality show.  Then yesterday I was driving on a familiar route through Westchester and my eye caught something.  I have driven by this radio station dozens of times and wondered what's happening in there.

I have a background in radio from back in college.  I was a DJ on the college radio station and a Newscaster on a Public Radio station.  I would record interviews with politicians and business leaders from around Northern New York and Vermont, produce segments, and read the news on the air.  This was the real deal and the station had pretty high ratings.  I loved that job.  But it was the early days of the Dotcom Boom and I got sucked into IT.  I often think fondly of my days in radio.  So when I see a radio station, I sometimes imagine what's going on in there.

I drive by this station all the time.  Yesterday, as I was about to drive right by it again, at the last second I whipped into the parking lot.  I'm sure the guy behind me must have cursed me out for being a bad driver - I'm not and no laws were broken but in hindsight it was kind of a jerky move, I'll admit.  So I went in and introduced myself to the station manager and found out they actually have an opening on a day and time when I am available.  Are you kidding me!!!

The way it works is I basically rent out the station for an hour and they provide an engineer and all the equipment.  At the end of the show, they'll give me a recording that I can upload to my UFO podcast site so people can download it.  All I have to do is sit down in front of a microphone with my guest and find stuff to talk about for an hour.  I can do that.  What I can't do is fork up the rent money and hope that people find the show and eventually some sponsors will sign on and I'll stop bleeding cash on this project.

So here's where I reach out to my audience for a helping hand.  So far this blog has had over 600 page views, despite having been up for only two weeks.  Yeah, SIX HUNDRED!  In two weeks.

Thank you, everyone.

Some of you must know someone who could sponsor a radio and UFO podcast show about Alien Spaceship Sightings.  Maybe it's a small business owner in the Tri-State New York Area.  Maybe it's someone who works for a large corporation which underwrites things like this, either through a philanthropic arm or just via plain old advertising.

Please put them in touch with me.

ALF Columbus

It is Columbus Day, here in the US.  I thought I would have some fun with today's post and speculate on a few things.

For many Americans, especially Italian Americans, Columbus Day is a day of celebration.  When I was a kid, we were taught that Christopher Columbus "discovered America."  These days, kids are taught there may have been other Europeans like Leif Erikson who came to the Western Hemisphere first but Columbus certainly deserves the credit for kicking off the wave of European exploration which brought all people of the world into contact with each other.

Many others have recently taken a more negative view of Columbus.  They say he was a tyrannical ruler of The West Indies who maimed, mutilated, and dismembered his subjects.  He brought disease and oppression to the native people whose land and wealth was later stolen by their European conquerors, while all traces of ancient cultures were stamped out.

Myself, I have mixed feelings.  All of the above information is true.  Can and should we both revere and despise Columbus, for his accomplishments and his atrocities?

Regardless of the answer, the subject is relevant to the discussion of alien contact.  I wonder what will the alien Christopher Columbus be like?  What will his "discovery" of Earth do to the people who live here?  What parallels can we draw from Columbus' experience?


If the alien Columbus, let's call him Alf Columbus, were to directly mirror the life and experiences of the real Christopher Columbus, it might look something like this:

Young Alf Columbus is ambitious and hard-working.  He leaves home at an early age to work on various interplanetary trading vessels.  In his free time he learns many languages and studies the astronomy and geography of the known universe.  He is not a scholar but has many ideas on how things work and writes about them extensively.  He fathers children on several planets but provides assurances for their care.

About midway through life, Alf Columbus learns that the main route to a popular and lucrative trading partner in another solar system has been compromised by a war which brought new leadership to a few planets along the path.  The journey along this route is now fraught with danger.  The alternate route is long and has its own challenges.  He hears someone suggest searching for a wormhole to this trading partner but that idea is rejected.  Columbus picks up the idea and is granted audience with the rulers of his adopted planet.  His plan is far-fetched and no ships are available which could carry enough supplies, should the expedition fail to find the wormhole.  However, the planet is running a huge deficit and its rulers are eager to gain a competitive edge over their neighbors in nearby solar systems.  Columbus persuades them to fund a journey to seek out the fabled wormhole to this other system which is rich in items they would like to trade for.

Alien Contact

He quickly traverses many light years through space, utilizing techniques he perfected in his years of over-space trading.  He then more or less bumps into Earth, a then unexplored rock in a remote system.  He believes it to be an outlying planet close to the wormhole he seeks.  Columbus spends a few years on Earth, waiting for the stars to align correctly before beginning his journey back to his own planet.  He observes our vast wealth and is eager to find its sources.  He writes in his diary that the people of Earth are intelligent and hard-working and could make good workers for his people's own purposes.  He makes note of our guns and other weapons, remarking on how primitive they are, and how he could conquer our entire planet with about fifty men and then rule us as he pleased.

He visits several countries.  In each, he abducts humans to bring back with him so they can learn his language and act as interpreters.  In some countries, he leaves crewmen behind, to gain a foothold on the planet.  Most people are peaceful and easy to capture.  Only one country provides any resistance.  One of his men is injured and several humans are killed in the confrontation.

Columbus departs for home and stops at a few known planets along the way.  Word of his discovery of intelligent life on Earth spreads quickly throughout the galaxy.  Soon, others make their own plans to journey here and check us out.  Meanwhile, Alf Columbus arrives home to great fanfare.  Several of his captives have died en route.  The remaining are paraded around the capital as oddities.

Now emboldened, Alf Columbus requests and receives much greater funding, crewmen, and supplies to return to Earth.  He travels with a large fleet of spaceships with the goal of establishing permanent colonies from which to conquer the planet and to use as launch points to conquer primitive peoples like us, in other nearby solar systems.  He also has the goal of converting the people of Earth to a belief system quite foreign to our own and in stark contrast with every major human religion.  As is his people's practice, he will do this without any reservation and we are forced to comply under penalty of death.

While some in Columbus' entourage are performing The Lord's work most others are here for their own personal gain.  They look upon our resources as their own, waiting to be plundered.  They look upon our people as simple animals to be trained like dogs or horses, to perform duties for them and to take us and do as they please.

As with his namesake, Alf Columbus and his men bring with them a host of new diseases which human bodies have no immunity to and which our primitive medical system is not equipped to fight.  Hundreds of millions die each year in widespread epidemics.  Scientists develop vaccines just in time for new diseases to arrive from other planets as the floodgates open to Conquistadors from other planets, each eager to carve out his own foothold on Earth.

Wars are fought between these planets, to gain control over us.  The battles are mostly in deep space, so as not to despoil the planet which they are fighting for and also to preserve their own planets and even those of their opponents.  They have learned through millions of years of battle that life goes on after a war and you will need to leave survivors amongst your adversary, to trade with after the war, and a viable ecosystem for them to live on.

Over time, our conquerors solidify their hold on the planet and eventually break away from their home planet to form a new civilization.  Most humans who were not killed in rebellions or by disease acquiesce to their new alien leaders.  Many interbreed, creating new hybrid races, and pick up the languages and cultures of their leaders.  Those who still resist are packed into reservations where they are permitted to continue their ancient practices of Liberty and Justice for All, as well as many other hokey and outdated principles like monotheism.

Within a few generations, a peace settles in and the new world order is accepted as the right way and the only way.  Life as we know it no longer exists and will never return, though most people consider the new way to be better than our current way.

In the end, Alf Columbus is hailed as a hero by most, though some will only focus on the means by which he took our planet and will drag his name through the mud for all eternity.

Happy Columbus Day!
