Fort Benning UFO Incident

Fort Benning, Georgia UFO Incident                  Back to: UFO Stories
By Paul Dale Roberts
UFO Fleet versus the United States Army At Fort Benning, GA - Sept. 1977
In September 1977 did something amazing
happen at Fort Benning, Georgia? Did 1300
soldiers witness a UFO fleet over Fort
Benning? Did the US Army go to battle with
these UFOs? Were some of the soldiers
abducted? Is this one of the biggest military
cover-ups of all times? I have been in
telephone contact with John Vasquez, author
of 'Incident at Fort Benning' and John
received an email from another witness to
this incredible event. His name is: Kenneth
Darnell.

Below is an excerpt from his email that he
sent to John Vasquez:
Hello John...I received your e-mail several days ago. Sorry I have not had a chance to reply till now. I
am a training specialist with the Department of Corrections and I spend most days away from the office.
I conduct firearms training on Mondays, Unarmed self defense on Tuesdays, Impact weapons training
on Wednesdays and lecture classes on Thursdays.I read your article many years ago when I did a
search and used the words Ft. Benning and UFO on the search line. I was looking for anyone else who
may have been standing in that laundry line that night in 1977 and witnessed the incident I spoke of on
UFO casebook. I found your article then and that was the only thing I have ever found. Have you ever
had anyone else relate information to you regarding the incident you spoke of? It always seemed to me
that your incident happened a couple months AFTER my incident. I completed jump school around the
middle of May in 1977 and shipped to Bragg right after that.

I'm thinking my incident happened around March or April. I always wondered why that if all of us saw
those lights that night, why did the security at the base not investigate and question us about what we
saw. It's always amazed me that no one ever reported in the news or videotaped the events that I spoke
of. I wish I could remember a few of the other people that were with me then. I have a unit photo form
AIT and jumpschool and I can remember a few first names, but I can't remember last names or home
towns. Somebody else out there still has memories of what we saw that night. It was amazing....and
scary...the speed at which those lights moved from horizon to horizon....and the sudden stops and turns
have always made me a believer that it was extraterrestrial craft, that I saw. Both of our events are close
enough that there could be some correlation. I don't know...But it is good to meet you and have
someone else form that period of my life who remembers that Summer. I wish you well and hope you
have a wonderful Christmas...We stop training on the 18th and don't start back until Jan. 4th, so I will
have a couple of weeks to recharge my batteries.

There was definitely a UFO flap during the
70s on the East Coast and UFOs were being
seen all the time near and around military
bases. What is interesting is that in July 1974
I was in Ft. Jackson, South Carolina and I
was in the town of Columbia with two other
soldiers and the three of us all saw six
glowing blue discs in V-formation flying over
Fort Jackson.  One of the soldiers yelled
"geese?" and I said..."no way are those
geese, those are UFOs!"

As we kept watching, we were astonished to
watch the UFOs erratically dart off in
different directions and simply vanish in front
of our eyes. There was something very
happening on military bases along the East Coast and when I heard the story about Fort Benning, it
definitely caught my attention. Now, we have a Correctional Officer verifying John Vasquez's story.

It's time for CNN News, HLN News, Dateline, 48 Hours to send out some investigative reporters and find
out the truth of probably one of the biggest UFO events in history. I believe the military knows exactly
what happened on September 1977 and I believe the military is covering up one of the greatest
historical UFO conspiracies!
