GENERAL GEORGE S. BROWN AND BATTLING THE UFO’S
“I don’t know whether this story has ever been told or not. They weren’t called UFOs. They were called enemy helicopters. And they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ [demilitarized zone] in the early summer of ’68. And this resulted in quite a little battle. And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer took a hit and we never found any enemy, we only found ourselves when this had all been sorted out. And this caused some shooting there, and there was no enemy at all involved but we always reacted. Always after dark.” The same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in ’69.”
General Brown, as USAF Chief of Staff, addressing the appearance of UFOs during the Vietnam War at press conference in Illinois, October 16, 1973
GEORGE FILERS Note: As an Intelligence officer, I briefed General Brown in Saigon, Vietnam almost every morning at 7th Air Force Headquarters during 1968. He treated all ranks with respect, and was always friendly even when I was just a Captain. He became Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1978 to 1982 and was well aware of UFOs.
