in 1978, my secondary afsc was security police at McGuire. We had to patrol the flightline and were told not to talk about it.

This is a problem. I do not want to think that our servicemen could or would lie about something like this, yet the "government" has supposedly silenced everybody and covered this up all these many years?

This is when I do not know what to believe.

If our servicemen are hallucinating, something needs to be done besides a cover-up.

If they are telling the truth, then the cover-up and disinformation has worked well, and apparently the only thing our government does well.

Which then leads me to feel crappy either way.

WTF?

I was stationed there as an SP in 78. I do remember this incident happening although it's been a long time ago and yes, it WAS hush hush!

I also remember the smell of ammonia that night but we were told it was the army conducting chem warfare exercises.
