According to Smith: “I was debriefed by somebody within our command structure on base, and talked to somebody from Operation [Project] Blue Book that came out. I’m not sure when we got back, but we were told that we were not to talk to anybody, not to talk to any of the press especially about this incident — that people would be coming and checking with us. The only people we could talk to were people within our chain of command. So, when the person, I think he was a Lieutenant Colonel [Werlich], that’s what I remembered. For some reason I thought he had come from some other — because I didn’t know him. He interviewed me and from what I understood some people — I was briefed on this — were going to be coming out and setting up campers. Some of our camper crews had told us, and some of our officers had told us, that they had seen lights up at Oscar-2. A lot. So, when I briefed him on that he literally took a camper and went out there for a while. I think he spent some time on some of our sites. We were told that he would be out near our sites, to be aware that he’s there and don’t bother him. We could identify him if we wanted to, but as long as he was not on the property, he was OK. And I think he spent some time up near Oscar-2, because we’d had some sightings up there.” Smith, William E., Jr., 2001b.
