UFO SIGHTING REPORT
ISLAND OF VIEQUES
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Island of Vieques, US Navy Base, Ammunition magazine area
Date: In 1965 or 66, after midnight. I really don't remember date.
Approach Direction: Uknown
Departure Direction: Unknown
Witness Direction: Uknown
Description: I was on radio watch at Roosevelt Roads Weapons building. We were responsible for the ammunition area on Vieques. They had a roving patrol who radioed his status once an hour to me. He called me, very excited, saying he was 'buzzed' by something and emptied his .45 at it. I woke up department and base senior staff, who responded.
Color/Shape: Cigar shaped with lights.
Height & Speed: Unknown
TV/Radio/Press: We were interviewed at length by Navy and Air Force officers and instructed to keep silent. I don't think it made the news.
Follow-up from Brian Vike:

Q. Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance, color, texture, sound.
A. Cigar shaped with lights
Q. Can you please tell me what color the lights were on this thing ?
Q. Also would you know the approximate size of the object ?
Q. What I am also interested in is the interview which you had, I would love to hear the detail on this.
A. After I reported the incident to our senior officers, senior base officers, security, etc showed up at our building. There was radio & telephone traffic between Vieques and Roosy Roads requesting details. At first light, the guard was flown back to Roosy. We were questioned by Navy officers who seemed more concerned a weapon was discharged at 'nothing' than it being a UFO. Sometime before noon, USAF officers showed up (we still hadn't had any sleep) and questioned us together and apart. They were reserved, calm, and detailed orientated. They really didn't advance an opinion but requested we not discuss the matter for the time being. Except for some kidding from other sailors, the incident was forgotten.
