      with me, but only a fraction has been released
      such as this report.


      The McChord UFO Incident '72

      by former AFOSI agent




      This is from the files of AFOSI dated in October 1972. Note that Blue Book
      closed it's doors in December 1969 but yet here almost three years later we
      see that the Air Force is still collecting UFO reports then proceeding to
      classify them. No fictitious names or places were used in this report. The
      names and events are real..........Rmc


      On October 14, 1972, Airman First Class(AIC) Steven Briggs and Airman(AMN)
      Dennis Hillsgeck were instructed to check the tactical air navigational
      (TACAN) facility located eight miles east of McChord Air Force Base. The
      TACAN site was situated on government land maintained by the United State
      Army, Ft. Lewis. Briggs and Hillsgeck drove to the TACAN site at
      approximately 1300 hours. Upon their arrival, they opened the locked fence
      surrounding the TACAN facility and entered the compound. Once inside the
      compound, they opened the TACAN building and began to conduct a systems
      check of the TACAN equipment. At approximately 1400 hours., Briggs heard a
      strange sound outside the building. According to Briggs, it sounded like a
      high pitch engine. Briggs exited the building to investigate the sound.
      Once outside, Briggs observed a saucer shaped object directly above the
      TACAN building. Briggs watched as the object landed just south of the TACAN
      compound. Briggs was startled by the object and entered the TACAN building
      to summoned Hillsgeck. Once Hillsgeck and Briggs exited the building
      together, they observed two �creatures� walking towards the fence. Briggs
      returned to the building and telephoned (555) the base security police. He
      yelled that they needed help at the TACAN site because �intruders� were
      attempting to enter the facility. The phone call was received by Sgt David
      Holmes, the Law Enforcement Desk Sergeant, 62nd Security Police Squadron.
      Sgt Holmes dispatched Sgt Dwight Reid and AIC Michael Tash to the scene. It
      took the security police patrol 17 minutes to travel to the TACAN site.
      Upon their arrival, they observed Briggs and Hillsgeck standing near their
      government vehicle. Both appeared to be in a daze. Neither could speak.
      Sgt Reid summoned an USAF Ambulance to the scene. Hillsgeck appeared to
      have been burnt around the face. AIC Tash walked around the area and found
      marks in the soft Washington state dirt. Then suddenly, Sgt Reid yelled to
      AIC Tash that an object was directly over his head. A saucer shaped object
      was hovering just above the TACAN facility. Sgt Reid attempted to
      communicate to the security police law enforcement office by using his
      Motorola HT-220 portable radio. However the radio did not function. Sgt
      Reid then yelled for AIC Tash to return to the police vehicle. Sgt Reid and
      AIC Tash retrieved Briggs and Hillsgeck and drove from the scene.
      Approximately one mile from the TACAN site, Sgt Reid was able to communicate
      with the security police office, requesting assistance and declaring a
      �Covered Wagon." Four additional security policemen arrived on scene,
      including, Sgt Darren Alexander and his military dog-Champ. Sgt Alexander
      and Champ drove to the scene and started to search the area. Approximately
      400 yards south of the TACAN site, Champ alerted. Sgt Alexander observed
      two �creatures� standing near a remote power station. Sgt Alexander yelled
      for the two �creatures� to stand and raise their hands. Both creatures then
      moved towards Sgt Alexander. Sgt Alexander observed that one of the
      creatures was holding an object, which Sgt Alexander thought was a weapon.
      Sgt Alexander fired six rounds from his military issued Model 15, .38
      Caliber Revolver. After firing the shots, Sgt Alexander returned to his
      vehicle and radioed Sgt Reid that he had fired at the creatures. A Security
      Alert Team (similar to a police SWAT) arrived. They conducted a search of
      the area and observed the saucer shaped object sitting on the ground,
      directly east of the power station. They circled the object and called for
      a supervisor. Captain Henry Stone, Security Police Law Enforcement, arrived
      on scene but the object departed just as Captain Stone walked towards the
      object. The object flew off in an easterly direction and was out of sight
      in a few seconds. Office of Special Investigations agents arrived on scene
      and conducted an investigation. Statements were taken from all involved.
      Evidence was collected from the scene, to include shell casings from the
      rounds fired by Sgt Alexander.

      This incident was classified as Top Secret and remained in the OSI files as
