10 Stories of Alien Abduction That Could Lead to the Military
Countless subjects of “alien” abductions have been regularly reported to organizations like the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) since their beginnings in 1969. However, according to the Pentagon’s Preliminary Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Assessment delivered to Congress in June 2021, “Limited data and inconsistency in reporting are key challenges to evaluating UAP. No standardized reporting mechanism existed until the Navy established one in March 2019.”. So, what does this mean?
A Gallup poll followed the Pentagon report in July 2021. It recorded 41% of Americans have seen unidentifiable aircraft, 50% consider rational explanations like human activity, while 9% have no opinion whatsoever (Link 3). These purported military abductions (referred to as MILABs) came out in 1996 when Austrian MUFON rep. Dr. Helmut Lammer Ph.D., published, Preliminary Findings of Project MILAB: Evidence for Military Kidnappings of Alleged UFO Abductees. Elaborating further, here is a list of 10 alien abductions that could have been the military.
10 Leah Haley
In 1990, Leah Haley remembered an alien abduction. She recalls her experience as if it were a dream, later seeking hypnosis. Born in 1951 in Decatur, Alabama, Haley had a career as a certified business administrator and author, whose 1993 book Lost Was the Key put her on the map of the UFO community. Her original claims were that extraterrestrials were the culprits. However, it took years to even fathom the idea of military involvement.
Through select Freedom of Information Act, U.S. Patent Office documents, and interviews with abductees in subsequent years, Haley believed she was not chosen at random. She has endured an abduction with her sister and been offered jobs randomly by total strangers for positions at nearby military bases, even recognizing fellow abductees in her conscious life.
9 Col. John Alexander, Ph.D.
“It is clear that MUFON has…become the champion of unsubstantiated, barely tangentially related nonsense” said Col. John Alexander in response to assertions made by an Austrian MUFON representative, Dr. Helmut Lammer, whose suspicions about military kidnappings of alien abductees was published in a series of 1996 MUFON journals. “The list of involved personnel goes on and on…since military personnel rotate on a frequent basis, there would have to be thousands… Where are they?” refutes Col. Alexander to whistleblower testimony on MILABs.
Not an abductee, Alexander is an author academically respected in the UFO community. He ascended through the ranks of the U.S. Army beginning in 1956 before retiring in 1988 after holding key positions in special operations intelligence. Purportedly, Alexander was a member of an elite group of high-ranking individuals using privileged knowledge to manipulate information related to UFOs across the globe. Collectively, they gave themselves aviary code names and infiltrated other occult government groups such as MJ-12. Code name: John “Penguin” Alexander. 
8 Dr. Karla Turner
Dr. Karla Turner was an academic and professional educator but gave it all up to focus on alien abduction research when she and her family regressed unsettling memories. Since her 1996 passing from an aggressive and rare form of breast cancer discovered only after her encounters were made public, Turner’s published works describe her family’s firsthand encounters. They also suggest that you, the abducted, are a targeted individual and not chosen at random.
Turner was convinced the military targeted abductees in response to the reports people had made. In Turner’s second book, Taken, she discusses the idea that some prominent abduction theorists state should be avoided—don’t think of aliens as good and evil. Turner claims, “this cannot be done, nor should it be.” She continues that those who have been abducted have the right to know how their “participation” will be used by their abductors. Under what circumstances and what reason will the abducted be “made a part of this agenda” since they have been “implanted, trained, and programmed to participate in some future scenario.” Don’t abductees have the right to know for what purpose “our minds, bodies, and souls will be used?”
7 Melinda Leslie
A woman with psychic insight who does energy work and conducts vortex and UFO tours, Melinda Leslie has been very transparent about her own alien encounters. In the early 1990s, Leslie and two friends went independently under hypnotherapy after they discovered missing time during a road trip in California. Each remembered similar experiences, including being examined by aliens with someone dressed in what looked like a naval uniform working side by side with extraterrestrials. Leslie said the military personnel “wasn’t another abductee, he was just there, watching…”
Leslie’s testimony alleges black projects are only feasible if classified into above-top-secret special access programs. Is it possible that the Robertson Panel (1953)—a collaboration between Howard Percy Robertson, a mathematical physics professor, and the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence set the tone for intelligence protocols today? Melinda Leslie, like so many others, attempts to pull their experiences into the light, hoping that more testimony can pave the way toward full government disclosure.
6 Myrna Hansen
1980. Cimarron, New Mexico. Myrna Hansen and her then six-year-old son Shawn approached a pasture on route home from Oklahoma. It was nighttime when they witnessed a beam drag cows up into the air (Link 1). Within seconds, Myrna claimed that a small craft had seemingly become aware of their presence, ultimately abducting Hansen and her young son.
Immediately following the Hansens’ experience, Myrna was referred to an Albuquerque MUFON researcher, Paul Bennewitz. Enlisting the help of hypnotherapist Leo Sprinkle, they would go on to regress Hansen. She and her son were taken to a deep underground military base. Her precise description of the location attracted the attention of members from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, who have allegedly monitored Myrna and Shawn since that time.
5 Linda Napolitano (aka Linda Cortile)
The story describes Linda suddenly awake above her bed to see strange figures in the process of levitation. Once on board a craft, she was subject to medical analysis and alien experimentation by different beings, some human in appearance. As her account later gained attention, two men came forward as “witnesses” who ultimately went on to kidnap and interrogate her multiple times, leading Napolitano to believe it was a cover-up.
Linda’s recollection of events, like many before and after her, had deployed critics. In subsequent years since her experiences, medical professionals associated with the case have found that she is of sound mind. Walter H. Andrus, founder and then director of MUFON, considered Napolitano’s story as, “definitely authentic case of human abductions by aliens.”
4 Betty & Barney Hill
Betty and Barney Hill were not an ordinary couple for the time—interracial, yet both respected in their community as rights activists. In September 1961, the Hills were driving home through remote New Hampshire when Barney became acutely aware that a light was trailing their every movement. When they finally arrived home, the couple felt there was some missing time. Their case is one of the first highly publicized alien abductions in modern history. To this day, a lengthy measure of evidence in this case exists and cannot easily be refuted. Just before events took place, the couple pulled the car over to determine what was stationary above them.
When Betty & Barney finally underwent hypnosis, the initial recorded sessions (which are widely available today for free) reveal when Barney first peered through binoculars, he “could almost feel this figure’s intense concentration to carry out a plan—to capture the witness.” Barney recalls “a red-headed Irishmen” and what “looks like a German Nazi” during regression (Link 3). Once on board the craft, the Hills were subjects of separate analysis. Consequently, Barney’s faith and humanity had been irreversibly shaken while Betty embraced her curiosities after a being displayed a distant star map of where they had come from.
3 Katharina Wilson
A lifetime of abduction experiences stretching back to when she was just a child, Katharina Wilson believes black operations are more common than we think. “I have to admit that I do not understand why I am remembering these scenarios, or abductions or whatever we choose to call them. I have even wondered if someone may be ‘importing’ these events or memories into my consciousness through a mechanism.” Wilson thinks that as each new year passes, another whistleblower comes forward.
Untrained ears would assume her firsthand accounts are frightfully imaginative works of fiction. Deep-sea submersible experiences, surfacing and being transferred to U.S. Navy vessels, behavior modification trials like those of MK-ULTRA. Anyone caught by UFOlogy’s gravity has heard of the likeliness of alien abductions persisting throughout the generations of family members. Moreover, one thing is for certain, Wilson believes that what abductees are revealing only scratches the surface of remote viewing and “screen memories.”
2 Niara Isley
Previously registered as an airman in the U.S. Air Force, Niara Isley’s efforts to shine a light on ETs have revealed yet another layer of what she calls “shadow government.” Isley has been on a spiritual journey for most of her life, but once she had discovered a missing three-month chunk of time in 1980, she sought hypnosis. “What I discovered was staggering and life-altering, turning life upside down for me for a good many years.”
While employed with the government, Isley worked with radar technology and provided research and development support near the Tonopah Test Range, 30 miles southeast of Tonopah, NV. Over time she has revealed being held against her will on the moon in a joint “Reptilian-Gray-Human secret base.” “I was scared. I knew I had to get back to my daughter, so I was pretty compliant. I just didn’t want to do anything that would get me killed.”
1 Corey Goode
Recognized at a young age as possessing empathic abilities, Corey Goode was trained to fill support roles and several other militarized black operations (Intruder Intercept Interrogation Program, Auxiliary Specialized Space Research, etc.) starting in the mid-to-late-1980s when he was just six years old. It was a 20-year post in various secret space programs, after which he would undergo age regression and return to his original timeline. However, recalled on multiple occasions, Goode has persistently maintained that his experiences of direct physical contact with non-terrestrial beings are very real and that he was chosen as an acting liaison between multiple ET federations and councils.
Although on the flip side of every coin lies additional context. Particularly when you are considered a compromised individual by the UFO community at large. A society of like thinkers with open minds that do not typically earn money for their lectures and appearances, Goode was earning tens of thousands of dollars in speaking fees. He first captured audiences around the world on David Wilcock’s Gaia program, Cosmic Disclosure. Which must have opened old wounds because it was revealed that he actively doxed any and all opponents. What made a real stink of things, however, was when Gaia proposed in dueling lawsuits that Wilcock’s decision to leave the network was wholly fabricated by Goode love-bombing him with the promise to one day join the “alliance” and put to rest any Luciferian doubts.
