The Card and the Question

APRO's membership included not only subscribing members, but eventually field investigators as well, chosen to investigate UFO reports on behalf of APRO because of special skills or location. The standard Aerial Phenomena Research Organization letter of field investigator welcome shown here is included particularly because of a reference to military people overseas. APRO depended significantly upon foreign investigators to make the public aware that UFOs are an international scientific mystery.

As I continued to serve in the Air Force in Texas, letters and UFO reports continued to seek me out back in New York. The letter shown here, from northern NY State, is of special interest because an Air Force representative was actually dispatched to speak with the witness and, according to this witness, the Air Force investigator admitted to other sightings.
