I am a US Army combat veteran with a family of four children, and I submitted a UFO report concerning a sighting in Gladwin, MI over the 4th of July weekend.
The purpose of this letter is to ask for help. I am a huge skeptic as I have seen most types of military vehicles, rockets, planes, helicopters, and weather balloons. Friends tell me that I am overly skeptical about anything that can be classified as paranormal and I believe that to be true. However, I have no clue as to what was in the sky the other night. I am the only one in the group that did not see the entire event as I only saw the object as it neared the horizon, just above the tree line. It was larger than anything I have ever seen in the sky, from Patriot Missles to Stealth Bombers. It moved slower than anything I have ever seen, and while I have seen numerous meteorites and in my life from the ground in countries like Saudi Arabia, Brazil, and India, nothing has ever come close to looking like what we all saw.
Friends of ours saw the exact same thing the night before us over two hundred miles south of our location. The only difference was the color. Ours was a bright orange, theirs was red. Everything else about it was identical.
Please post my entry from the other day, or feel free to contact me regarding what we all saw. Between our two groups that saw these things in the sky, we have a total of about 30 eye witnesses and we are just desperate to hear if anyone else saw what we did.
We are spooked.
Thank you for your time and attention.
P.S. yes, I did look at your section with the UFO balloons, and no, those balloons do not look like anything that we saw.
