UFO sightings , 1966, Francis E Warren AFB,

As I type this I am listening to your guest describe
UFO incident at Ellesworth AFB, SD.

At about the same time, I was a in security of a
Minuteman Complex assigned to Francis E Warren
AFB, Cheyenne, Wyoming.

It began one night by our MCCC (Missle Combat
Crew Commander) asking my partner and me to
step outside and look straight up and report back to him.

Above us was a formation of eight objects. Their
altitude was high enough to prevent any real description
but their formation. When I reported back to the MCCC,
he told me our findings were what he expected. He told
me that Cheyenne Mountain had just told him of eight
UFO's over our location.

I might note, that I later was told that Tinker AFB in
Oklahoma City had eight UFO's reported over them
the following night.

The various sightings continued for almost a 30 day
period. At one time, we had a two man security crew
posted at one of our silos. When teams such as that,
were posted, they were equiped with a rather top heavy
vehicle. Usually a 4x4 Dodge Power Wagon with a
camper mounted . Because of this, when they were
parked on the site, they would tie them down with guy
wires to prevent them from being blown over.

It was reported to me, a UFO hovered over the silo and
over the teams vehicle. It seems the vehicle began to
shake as though it was being raised.. The guy wires
prevented any further movement..

During that 30 day period, ranchers were driving the
sheriff of Laramie County a bit crazy. They were
reporting UFO's and missing cattle..

I heard, sometime ago, that a member of my Air
Police squadron had informed Mr. Bell of a landing
site they had tried to preserve but were prevented f
rom doing so.

I just thought I might let you know this was a bit
more wide spread than it seems.

F. E. Warren Air Force Base operates 50 Peacekeeper
Missiles and 150 Minuteman III Missiles as part of the
United States strategic defense. Nearly 4,000 military
personnel and 600 civilians operate and maintain the
base which covers 5,866 acres at the main base near
Cheyenne, Wyoming, and 220 remote missile facilities
spread over 12,600 square miles in Wyoming, Nebraska,
and Colorado. Francis E. Warren AFB near Cheyenne
Wyoming is one of four strategic missile bases in the
United States. The base has the distinction of evolving
from a noteworthy frontier infantry and cavalry post into
the largest, most modern strategic missile facility in the
United States.
On October 15, 1962, Morrison-Knudsen and Associates
won the contract to construct 200 Minuteman silos over
an 8,300-square-mile area of Wyoming, Nebraska, and
Colorado, located north and east of the base.
Morrison-Knudsen subcontracted the task of excavating
the silos to the Meridith Drilling Company of Denver.
Meridith used an innovative technique of equipping
cranes with 6-, lo-, and 15-foot diameter augers. These
“biggest post-hole diggers on earth” allowed the crews
to average drilling out one silo per day between November
1962 to June 1963. The first site, A-6, reached completion
on October 2, 1963.
