E. Stone, SFC (Sergeant
First Class), U.S.
was born January 2, 1949, in Portsmouth, Ohio. After a
long career in the U.S. Army, he is now retired and employed
by a major security service company. Clifford has been
interested in UFOs since the age of eight when he had
his first UFO sighting in the
summer of 1957.
Stone is unique among those experiencing and investigating
UFO and ET phenomenon. He spent
22 years in the U.S. Army as part of an extremely elite
and secret group that was rapidly dispatched to crash
sites in order to recover UFO or ET craft,
and artifacts. Since his retirement from the
Army, he has devoted his time to a diligent Freedom
of Information Act search of government
archives. He maintains that we have knowledge that intelligent
life is visiting this planet in craft capable of traveling
distances of many light years very quickly; effectively
bypassing acceptably known physics. Further, he stresses
that our recovery of these ET
craft and artifacts have allowed our government to make
staggering scientific gains of great potential benefit
to the world. He maintains, as do many others,
that this information is held
in deeply secret programs beyond Constitutional controls
and that despite the end of the cold war,
those controlling these 'black projects' have continued
to keep these important discoveries to themselves and
for motives known only to them. Sgt. Stone
is coming forward with his story to encourage citizens
and our elected officials open investigations and end
this Constitutional bypass by a powerful and covert organization
operating under our noses and in our skies.
maintains that this secrecy is
unconstitutional and beyond control and knowledge of our
elected officials. Thereby, this represents
a government hidden within our
society with tremendous assets,
This illegal government is operating without oversight,
and the consent of the Executive,
or Legislative branches.
he feels this secrecy has split
large parts of the citizenry into those that have seen
UFO or ET craft/ beings and those that place these observers
in a category as something less than competent.
Much of the malaise and mistrust of government can be
attributed to a remarkable majority of its citizenry seeing
or believing in these objects, while the government and
its officials and representatives deny or lack the courage
to disclose what is now obvious. Also, the considerable
scientific skills and assets of the world are, for the
most part, diverted by this bias from working on projects
generations ahead of current understanding. This continues
to allow important discoveries and advances within the
control of the few.
Stone claims that he led a double life from the late 60's
through his retirement in 1990. While officially assigned
to an "NBC" Team
and Chemical retrieval
and abatement detail), he asserts that he also served
on Top Secret UFO crash retrieval
missions where he had physical
contact with downed ET craft and interactions with captured
non-human life forms. The official NBC
Team assignment allegedly served as a cover
for those highly secretive and compartmentalized operations.
Over a period of nearly 40 years, Stone has amassed one
of the largest private collections of authentic government
documents clearly establishing the hard reality of the
believes the U.S. Government
has chosen to classify information on UFOs and keep this
information from the public for unknown reasons.
For the past 46 years, he has actively engaged several
intelligence agencies within the U.S. Government for the
release of this information, making him a pioneer in this
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
was enacted by Congress in 1976.
he is attempting to obtain the release of all information
related to the government's involvement in any UFO recoveries
that might be in the classified files of Operation
Blue Fly through a project of his own,
known as Operation Blue Fly Research
Project. He continues to correspond with members
of Congress in an attempt to force the release of classified
UFO files to members of Congress and the public in a never-ending
search for the truth - whatever that truth might be.
Stone is a former State Section Director for MUFON
in the Roswell area. He is Director of Research for the
recently established "Outa Limits UFO Enigma Museum"
in Roswell, New Mexico.
Michael E. Salla conducted an
exclusive interview with Sgt. Stone
on July 20, 2005. He described how his specialized training
was done in a way that wasnt recorded in his military
record; how he would be secretly summoned to his classified
assignments without his regular army commander knowing;
and the actual duties he performed when secret teams were
tasked with the retrieval of extraterrestrial vehicles
and recovery of extraterrestrial biological entities,
both dead and alive.
