The Pentagon’s UFO investigation unit wants anyone who has been employed by the United States to report first-hand knowledge of government projects related to alien activity on their new website, according to Vice Wednesday. A submission form on the unit’s website allows former government employees to report UFO sightings dating back to 1945, said Director Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick at an off-camera press conference on Halloween.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to strongly encourage any current or former U.S. government employees, military or civilian, or contractors who believe that they have firsthand knowledge of a U.S. government UAP program or activity to please come forward using this new secure reporting mechanism,” said Kirkpatrick. “We want to hear from you.”
The investigation came after a declassified Pentagon report on military research into alien activity surfaced in 2021. Following declassification, over 400 Navy pilots came forward to report UAP sightings to the Pentagon. The new website hopes to capture more of these first-hand encounters.
