TM SECURITY POLICE SQUADRON (PACAF)
APO SAN FRANCISCO 96239
In a January of 1978, I was station at McGuire AFB, N.J.. One
evening , during the time frame of 0300 hrs. and
O500 hrs., there were a number of UFO sightins in
the area over the air field and Ft. DIX Army camp. I
am a security policeman and was on routine patrol at
the time. N.J. State Police, and Ft. Dix MP's were
running code in the direction of Brownsville, N.J..
A state trooper then entered Gate #5 at the rear of
the base requesting assistance and permission
to enter. I was dispatched and the trooper wanted
access to the runway area which led to the very back
of the air field and connected with a heavily wooded
area which is part of the Dix training area.
He informed me that a Ft. Dix MP was pursuing a low
flying object which then hovered over his car. He
described it as oval shaped, with no details, and
glowing with a blueish green color. His radio
transmission was cut off. At that time in front of
his police car, appeared a thing, about 4 ft. tall,
greyish, brown, fat head, long arms, and slender
body. The MP panicked and fired five rounds from his
.45 Cal into the thing, and one round into the
object above. The object then fled straight up and
joined with eleven others high in the sky. This we
all saw but didn't know the details at the time.
Anyway, The ting ran into the woods towards our
fenceline and they wanted to look for it. By this
time several patrols were involved.
found the body of the thing near the runway. It had
apparently climbed the fence and died while running.
It was all of a sudden hush-hush and no one was
allowed near the erea. We roped off the area and
AF OSI came out and took over. That was the last I
saw of it. There was a bad stench coming from it
too. Like ammonia smelling but it wasn't constent in
the air. That day, a team from Wright-Patterson AFB
came in a C-141 and went to the area. They crated it
in a wooden box, sprayed something over it, and then
put it into a bigger metal container. They loaded it
in the plane and took off. That was it, nothing more
said, no report made and we were all told not to
have anything to say about it or we would be court
