That's right folks, it's hard to believe it has been quite that long but sixty years has come to pass since the day everything changed when President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Vice President Richard M. Nixon met Valiant Thor shortly after he landed in Alexandria, Virginia on March 16, 1957.
I'll give you an update on what's been going on since the last time I posted. I'm planning a trip to High Bridge, NJ in a couple of months with Roger Larivière to the very spot where August C Robert shot black and white along with a few color photos that will never be forgotten. I've heard that it's off limits and if that's the case, perhaps we will check the surrounding areas or even better, we can scrap the trip to High Bridge, NJ and head down to Alexandria, VA!
Really I would rather first go to High Bridge... Here's a less common shot I took off of Paola Harris's Facebook:
I also wanted to thank Beverly Klatt for getting in touch with me and talking about how when she was growing up in Alexandria, VA during the early 1960's she spoke to a classmate who explained that his father who worked for the government, was in contact with aliens from the planet Venus. This was before the story had broke to the public and so it is very interesting that she would've heard this at that time.
Over the next few months I plan to speak more with Ms. Klatt regarding this encounter; it's one that most certainly is not widely discussed--and this is very exciting!
Last but not least, I'm proud to say I made a fairly large contribution to NICUFO. I called up Julie Ann Stranges, wife of the late, great Dr. Frank E. Stranges, and wired NICUFO the money right over the phone. It was easy and it made me feel a whole lot better... Mrs. Stranges is struggling financially right now and any donations would help.
