“Our job was to protect that ammo dump and Davis raised his weapon. I said, ‘Davis, don’t do it!’ But of course, we had orders and he let off the first shot and dropped one of the Grey beings.”
- Gary Connor, former U. S. Army Private, Fort Dix, NJ
Return to Part 1.
November 6, 2010 Albuquerque, New Mexico - Two years after Gary Connor's encounter with the large disc that contained at least the two, tall, blond-haired beings and the small, grey-skinned entity that telepathically placed the formula in Gary's mind, he left Gaithersburg for the U. S. Army at Fort Dix, New Jersey, about 45 minutes east of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His induction was on February 2, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland.
First known as Camp Dix and later Fort Dix, its construction began in June 1917 for the United States War Department. It was named for Major General John Adams Dix, a veteran of the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Twenty years later in 1937, Fort Dix Airport was built and first opened to military aircraft on January 9, 1941. On January 13, 1948, the United States Air Force renamed the facility McGuire Air Force Base in honor of Major Thomas Buchanan McGuire, Jr, (1920–1945), who was a Medal of Honor recipient and the second highest scoring American ace during World War II.
