TT:Just lights in areas where they shouldn't have been?
TT:Did they do any investigation of them at the time?
JB:Not that I know of and we never got into it—the people that were around the area that saw it beside me said "Well there ain't no reason to say anything about it because nobody is gonna—"
TT:You felt like it you should have reported it is that what you are saying?
JB:Yeah, I think it should have been. The lights were kind of similar to the ones at the Minot incident—it was that type of a thing, I mean, they were there and then they'd move and they'd go to another area, up, sideways you know, and quickly.
TT:These sightings went on over a period of time?

TT:Yeah even in the Minot case Quintanilla wanted to say you guys were seeing stars, the star Sirius.
JB:No. There weren't any stars that low.
TT:Well Sirius was in the southeast.
JB:No. They weren't stars.
TT:So you arrived at Minot in, again in '68 or early '68
JB:Something after that, because when I left Minot I went to the Philippines.
TT:So how long were you at Minot?
JB:More than a year.
TT:So through into '69.
JB:I wouldn't have been there at all if I had my druthers, but—
TT:(Laughs) those were cold times up there. I remember, I grew up in Minnesota and—
