| Over the past 46 years I’ve spent countless hours investigating UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites, as revealed in hundreds of declassified U.S. government documents and the testimony of more than 160 U.S. military veterans whom I’ve interviewed. Some of those individuals, including a few retired colonels, say that UFOs have actually tampered with American nuclear missiles, known as ICBMs, rendering them temporarily inoperable.
Significantly, CNN live-streamed my September 27, 2010 press conference in Washington D.C., during which seven of those veterans discussed their personal UFO encounters at ICBM

sites or nukes storage facilities. The full-length video of that event is available online.
While the great majority of the veterans with whom I’ve spoken have described simple sightings of anomalous aerial objects, a few have reported having what seem to be abduction-like encounters involving non-human entities. The most dramatic case involves a former U.S. Air Force Security Policeman, Mario Woods, who has summarized his experience at Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota, in November 1977.
While investigating unauthorized intrusion alarms at one of Ellsworth’s missile silos, Woods and his Security Alert Team partner—who must remain anonymous—saw a huge spherical craft silently hovering over the site, then suddenly became incapacitated, at which point they were confronted by four diminutive beings accompanied by a much taller figure. Both men recall hearing a chorus of voices in their heads, telepathically saying, “Do not fear.”
Based on Woods’ conscious recall, as well as memories secured under hypnosis, the pair were removed from their security vehicle, then taken aboard the hovering craft and physically examined by their abductors. Afterward, they were transported to a location some five miles from the missile site, together with their truck. Eventually, other Air Force security personnel located the men and accompanied them back to the base for interrogation. Although Woods was unaware of it at the time, he and his partner had been missing for four hours.
The next day, at the base hospital, skin samples were taken from Woods’ face, above his right eyebrow and from the back of his right hand. At both sites, the skin appeared sunburned. Further, two identical circular scars were discovered on his body, one below his left armpit and the other on his left ankle.
I possess Woods’ DD214 service record, which confirms his Security Police position at Ellsworth AFB in 1977. Having communicated with him on several occasions over the past 18 months, and having reviewed the video of his October 2017 hypnosis session, my opinion is that he is telling the truth about his experience. Efforts are currently underway to locate his former security partner.
As mentioned earlier, a handful of other Air Force veterans have now come forward and discussed their own abduction encounters, either while on-the-job or at home. The most well-known is former Captain Bob Salas, the ICBM launch officer whose Minuteman ICBMs dropped offline just as a UFO hovered over their launch control facility, at Malmstrom AFB, Montana, in March 1967.
One night in 1985—eighteen years after the incident at Malmstrom—Salas awoke in bed to find a blue light emanating from his living room. He awakened his wife who also saw the light. He was just about to get up and investigate when he suddenly became paralyzed. Then he saw a small figure standing in the doorway, wearing a hood, and other small figures nearer his bed. He then found himself floating toward a closed window, guided by the entities. Salas said, “As impossible as it sounds, they took me right through the closed window!” He was then transported to a room somewhere and placed on something like an operating table. Then he was shown a long needle being held by bony fingers which was inserted into his groin. Afterward, the small beings escorted him to a bench and later took him back to his bed. Many but not all of these details emerged under hypnosis.
Another veteran, a retired Minuteman maintenance technician, whom I will publicly identify in the near future, has told me of suddenly awakening at his home near Malmstrom one night in 1996, only to find his bedroom filled with brilliant blue light. Seconds later, a short non-human entity approached the foot of his bed, at which point the technician became paralyzed. Down the hall, in another bedroom, his roommate—another missile maintenance man—was heard yelling loudly before suddenly becoming silent. The next thing my source knew, it was morning. At breakfast, comparing notes, his roommate confirmed being awakened by an intense blue light but apparently did not see the entity. However, he too had become paralyzed and apparently lost consciousness.
Three other USAF veterans have spoken to me about experiencing similar abduction-like encounters which I will summarize in a new book I am currently writing. In my opinion, these reports suggest a pattern of activity involving a small percentage of military personnel who have had a UFO sighting at a nuclear missile site, who have also been singled-out, sometimes years later, for a face-to-face interaction with the entities who presumably pilot the mysterious aerial craft.
Although the skeptics will scoff, as they always do, I think this finding is significant and requires exhaustive investigation. Consequently, I am asking any military veteran who operated or guarded nuclear weapons—who also had an on-the-job UFO sighting and concurrent or subsequent abduction-like experience—to contact me at [email protected]. While I would prefer to openly discuss any information revealed, I will keep our discussion confidential unless I am given permission to publish it. Be prepared to provide me with your DD214 forms.
