[Posted with permission] Subject: Cannon AFB From: "Granger, John" <JGranger@gsioutsourcing.com> To: "'email@example.com'" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thu, 27 Mar 1997 07:47:59 -0500 Glenn, I've been reading the Desert Rat for the past several years and have "lurked" through newsgroups following your escapades and those of the people you've written about. I've kept a little story to myself that I thought would be pretty unbelieveable but not terribly exciting. Having just read a note from an individual that had been stationed at Cannon AFB I decided to commit my comments to email. I was stationed at Cannon AFB from 1965 to 1968 as a computer programmer but I do not remember exactly when the following event took place. I was in the 832nd Combat Support Group. I also worked part time in the nearby town of Clovis New Mexico as a disk jockey for a radio station. One night I was awoken in the middle of the night by the military police and taken to a building I'd never been in on the base. A couple people in civilian clothes asked me "why I did it?" I asked "what do you think I did?". They then repeated the question and this exchange repeated itself for a while. I did not have any idea what they were talking about but finally asked if they would mind calling the lieutenant that ran my section and asking him to come down. Pretty soon he came in the room (without the others) and said "they claim you reported a flying saucer to the radio station you work for". I was stunned... I asked him what flying saucer they were talking about and this is the story: A civilian, near the airbase, spotted a UFO hovering extremely low over a half completed hospital that was being constructed on the base. The civilian called the radio station I worked for and reported it. The disk jockey called the news director for the station and he called the control tower at the base (whose phone number was supposedly not available) for confirmation. He was told by a controller that they not only saw it on radar but had visually confirmed it also. He then reported this to one of the news services who ran the story in the middle of the night. The investigators apparently tried to determine the connection between the airbase and the radio station and came up with me. I knew nothing about any of this except that the new hospital was about a block away from my barracks and I knew nothing about the actual event. Adding to my trouble was that the news director either did not know or would not say who the call came from. He finally swore that it was not me and I was then freed.
