“There was something about the reptilian ones.
Even though they were dead, he (father in USAF) would talk about
the overwhelming fear when they got near even the dead ones to cart them off. ”

November 24, 2016 Staten Island, New York - On November 14, 2016, I received the following email from a long-time Staten Island, New York, resident, who I will call “Steve.”
You are a tireless journalist and one that I trust. I started watching Art Bell the first year he was broadcasting his show. I think that was 1995? I have been sitting on a major story for decades. This has never been covered — the public has no knowledge of it. I say this because I have been following all these subjects since I was 6 years old, with good reason, and I just turned 50.”
I talked to Steve and asked for permission to do a recorded phone interview for Earthfiles and Coast to Coast AM radio. He gave me permission and began explaining that his father, who we agreed to call “John Smith,” led a double life in the U. S. Air Force from 1947 to 1955, which did not end when his father was honorably discharged. John Smith's public face for several years was in international stock brokerages. However, behind the scenes, according to Steve, his father had an Above Top Secret clearance to retrieve dead extraterrestrial bodies at many different crash sites around the United States beginning with two different locations in July 1947: one between Roswell and Corona, New Mexico. The second below Oscura Peak on the White Sands Proving Ground about fifty air miles southwest of Corona.
The Truman Administration needed military help for ongoing retrieval operations of the mysterious non-humans — both dead and alive — and their advanced craft technologies. But President Truman and his advisers wanted a strict policy of denial about everything deemed “non-human, or extraterrestrial” in the interests of national security in order to prevent public panic. Allegedly President Truman signed a highly classified TOP SECRET Executive Order at that time to formalize some kind of treaty with the living non-humans that military forces were retrieving from Roswell and sites beyond.
If true, that's when the first secret black dollars began to be diverted from Congressional and public oversight to highly classified efforts to communicate with the beings and back-engineer the alien technology. So John Smith's association with stock brokerages around the world was a government front operation to process money for secret dealings with aliens, while Smith was trying to cope with his intense fear of having to physically gather different types of grey, white and reptilian humanoids into body bags from many different crash sites.
Historically, there have been other whistleblowers who have suggested that some or all of the UFO crashes were Trojan Horse events designed to get Some Thing, or Some One, into the human population that had no idea their government was negotiating deals with alien intelligences while at the same time insisting there was nothing to UFOs except weather balloons and swamp gas.
That's how John Smith's double life evolved as a money man in the growing dark underbelly of American military and intel agents underground either working with, or in a secret war against, an alien presence. John Smith had no one to tell about his shocking work assignments except his wife and two sons. The son, Steve, talking to me was born on October 17, 1966, nineteen years after Roswell. Steve says when he was about five years old in 1971, his father began to open up about Roswell, his assignments to pick up dead alien bodies and to participate in what Smith called “an alien war” behind-the-scenes in Greenland and the Aleutian Islands. According to Steve, the secret “alien war” occurred simultaneously with the Korean War that raged in public view from 1950 to 1953. But in Greenland, the United States Air Force at Thule Air Base was allegedly providing secret help to one side of the “alien war.”
Adak Island in the Aleutian Islands ( lower left) is 1,197 miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska.
Adak Island is 3,037 miles from Pituffik Airport, which is also the American Thule Air Base
on the upper northwest corner of Greenland, which is 750 miles from the Arctic Circle.

Base is home to the 21st Space Wing's global network of sensors providing missile warning,
space surveillance and space control to North American Aerospace Defense
Command (NORAD) and Air Force Space Command (AFSPC).In 1943 the Army Air Corp
set up weather stations, Scoresbysund (Bluie East-3) on the east coast around the southern
tip of Greenland, and Thule (Bluie West-6) to be operated by Danish personnel. The weather
stations gave the allies a strategic edge over the Germans in battle planning
and provided a decisive factor in D-Day.
Steve Bishop, age 50, father “Sgt. John Smith” retrieved dead non-humans at crash sites from 1947 Roswell and beyond for several years, from Staten Island, New York: “Whenever it comes to anything with the aliens, everything is completely compartmentalized. His job was strictly to go in and grab the bodies and take them out. There were others that would take care of the live ones. And he’d seen them, too.
And then there were other compartments that did the clean up. Other compartments would haul it away. And everything was very compartmentalized. And they weren’t really supposed to talk to each other.
YOU WERE BORN THIRTEEN YEARS AFTER THE END OF THE KOREAN WAR. YOUR FATHER WAS DOING THIS WORK OF RETRIEVAL OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL BODIES DURING THAT WHOLE PERIOD OF TIME, NOT JUST THE KOREAN WAR, CORRECT?
Correct. He told us one of the big stories was Roswell. My dad was at Roswell. And I’ve known about it since the 1970s. Roswell wasn’t even close to the only crash. It used to go on quite a bit and our government is very good at covering this stuff up because he’s (father) has been to multiple sites inside of this country alone. He’s talked about the Greys — different ones, but the ones that always scared him — the Reptilians with their green scales — you could see he would get upset. It scared him! And my dad did not scare. My dad was not a scared person.
HOW DID THEY GATHER THE BODIES?
They were put in body bags and it was only him and a few others that would actually go to the bodies and they had to put them in body bags. He said that they were almost like the size of children. I know there were dozens. He talked about the Greys, different heights.
There was something about the reptilian ones. Even though they were dead, maybe some portion of them still might have been alive somehow because he would talk about the overwhelming fear when they got near — even the dead ones — to cart them off. It was so foreign and alien in nature that it would make him shake.
OK, CAN YOU DESCRIBE WHAT HE WAS SEEING IN THESE REPTOIDS?
The major thing he always talked about was their skin was green, leathery and scaly. Their eyes were black and larger than us (our human eyes).
THEY WERE TALLER AND YOUR FATHER WAS HOW TALL?
5 foot six inches.
DID HE SAY ANYTHING LIKE THEY (REPTILIANS) WERE BETWEEN 6 AND 7 FEET TALL OR 7 AND 8 FEET TALL?
I know he did and I don’t remember the exact. The actual thing that did happen that it was two ships that collided (at Roswell region). He carried off, I think, two or three dead ones. But there was one that was completely alive and one that was dying. And this was maybe the first, or one of the first sites that he was at. He talked about it a great deal.
Roswell UFO Crashing Near Corona, New Mexico,
Ejected Rescue Pod That Came Down Below
Oscura Peak on White Sands Proving Ground
One of the main details was the fact that there were two ships and one hit there (near Corona) and the other landed — I think it was 50 (air) miles away. I don’t know which location he (father) was at because by the time all of it did finally come public, my father was already gone.
IT WAS ALLEGEDLY THE TRIANGULAR-SHAPED CRAFT THAT HIT BETWEEN ROSWELL AND CORONA AND THAT IT RELEASED A POD LIKE A RESCUE POD THAT HAD THE BEINGS IN IT AND IT FLEW OVER OSCURA PEAK AND CAME DOWN ON THE WHITE SANDS PROVING GROUND BELOW OSCURA PEAK. [There was a 3rd crash site on the Mescalero Indian Reservation south of Ruidoso.]
And that’s the location I believe that they had two that survived, but one didn’t survive long. The other one survived.
This map is based on MJ-12 documents (See Websites below) summarizing UFO crash
site information on July 4th weekend, 1947, when one wedge-shaped aerial vehicle of unknown
origin crashed at Site 1 near Corona, New Mexico, northwest of Roswell; an escape pod
took off from there and flew over Oscura Peak before crashing at Site 2 on the White Sands
Proving Ground. A third badly damaged wedge-shaped vehicle was found at Site 3 south of Ruidoso.
WHAT DID HE (FATHER) SAY ABOUT BOTH THE LIVE ONE AND THE DEAD — OR DYING ONE?
They were definitely under 5 feet — the short ones. He was not allowed near the live ones because that wasn’t his department. So he only saw them from a distance. They were short, sort of greyish. Leathery skin. He said they almost looked like some kind of doll because it was so un-Earthlike with the extremely small elongated neck. It was hard to see that these things can actually walk around and be alive, but he could see one that was walking around and alive!
He didn’t have the same reaction to them that he had towards the reptilians.
WHAT WAS THE RELATIONSHIP FROM HIS POINT OF VIEW BETWEEN THE REPTILIANS AND THESE SMALL GREYS?
He didn’t know. He didn’t have an insight to all the facts.
DID HE EVER SEE THE REPTILIANS AND SMALL GREYS TOGETHER ALIVE OR DEAD AT THE SAME PLACE?
Yes. That’s really what I wanted to talk about because I had never heard anything or anyone report what I’m about to talk about. And hopefully, there are veterans out there that are willing to come forward with this now.”
June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953:
Public Korean War and Secret “Alien War”
in Aleutian Islands and Greenland
On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 North Korean People's Army soldiers deliberately crossed the 38th parallel separating the Soviet-backed North Korea from the pro-Western Republic of South Korea. The United States did not enter the war on South Korea's behalf until July 1950 to July 1953, when fighting ended after some five million soldiers and civilians had died.
What the world did not know, according to Steve's father, Sgt. John Smith, was that during the Korean War, an “alien war” also raged in Greenland and far away to the west in the Aleutian Islands that extend southwest of Anchorage into the Bering Sea. Greenland is a Colony of Denmark. But in 1946, Harry Truman tried to buy Greenland from Denmark. At a U. N. meeting, Danish Foreign Minister Gustav Rasmussen met with U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes to discuss the U. S. purchasing Greenland. Nothing was ever reported publicly and no one knows what happened in the meeting, but the U. S. made no further attempts to acquire Greenland. However, a 1951 NATO treaty allowed American bases to be built there anyway.
The Aleutian Islands are a chain of 14 large volcanic islands and 55 smaller ones
belonging to both the United States and Russia. Google Earth view of Aleutian Islands.
Adak Island at tip of Aleutian Islands is 3,037 miles from Pituffik Airport, which is also the American Thule Air Base on the upper northwest corner of Greenland, which is 750 miles from the Arctic Circle.
Linda: “WE’RE GOING TO THE KOREAN WAR THAT BEGAN JUNE 25, 1950, UNTIL JULY 27TH, 1953. THIS IS THE TIME FRAME AND YOUR FATHER IS INVOLVED.
Steve: He got moved over to Greenland. And I’m not sure if he went to Greenland first or if he went to the Aleutian Islands first. But from the stories I remember him telling my brother and me, the same things happened in both locations — which was an alien war. This went on for months. The aliens that were out there on at least two sides warring with one another all around the (Thule)
base, shooting each other down. Our people tried to shoot at them, too. But we couldn’t hit anything. They just out-maneuvered whatever weapons we had back then.
So, we also had a deal going on with them because when one side — if a ship got injured or damaged, they would land directly on the base and people would come out with supplies, whatever they needed to help them fix the ship and take off again.
OK, BUT THAT ASSUMES THAT THE UNITED STATES WAS TREATING ONE OF THESE BATTLING EXTRATERRESTRIALS AS SOME SORT OF A FRIEND OR ALLY TO HELP?
WHICH ONES WERE FRIENDS?
Don’t know. He talked about the Greys being there and some looked the same on the other side.
YOU MEAN IT LOOKED LIKE GREYS FIGHTING GREYS?
WELL, HOW DO YOU MAKE SENSE OF THAT? WHAT DID YOUR FATHER SAY?
I don’t know and he didn’t know. It was very confusing because that part they were told they were not allowed to ask or talk about. And so whatever they talked about was kind of in their own groups.
YOUR FATHER HAD A JOB WITH THE AIR FORCE TO GATHER UP THE DEAD BODIES OF EXTRATERRESTRIALS THAT INCLUDED THE SMALL GREYS, THE REPTILIANS. DID YOUR FATHER DEAL WITH TALLER GREYS?
He said he saw them in all different sizes.
DID YOUR FATHER GIVE ANY INDICATION THAT HE SAW THE DEAD BODIES OF TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF GREYS IN THE GREENLAND ALIEN BATTLE?
Yes, there was more than just Greys and Reptilians. There were, he said, all types. He knew of maybe close to a dozen different ones back then.
A DOZEN DIFFERENT EXTRATERRESTRIALS?
Of different types that he carried away.
WELL, CAN YOU TRY TO HELP US UNDERSTAND WHAT THOSE DOZEN MIGHT BE LIKE?
The ones that I know for sure, I know he had the reptilians. And I know he, for a fact, had the smaller Greys. And then there were others mixed in.
SINCE THERE IS A DISTINCTION MADE AMONG HUMAN ABDUCTEES AND MILITARY THAT THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS IN THE 7 TO 8 FOOT CATEGORY, ALL WHITE AND THEY ARE REFERRED TO AS ‘TALL WHITES,’ OR TALL HUMANOIDS.
He did talk about really tall aliens. I don’t remember what all the details were. Most of the talking about was taking place with me and my father was probably between 1972 to 1974. And then we started going into it a little bit more in the 1980s when I was in high school.
WHAT DID HE SAY ABOUT THE TALL E.T.S?
They were dead when he got there.
HOW DID THEY COMPARE TO THE OTHER TYPES OF E.T.S?
I remember him talking about green ones, the Greys and some white ones. But I remember him saying they were all different shapes and colors and heights, but he mainly talked about the Greys, the smaller ones.
BECAUSE THEY WERE THE MOST THAT HE GATHERED AS DEAD BODIES?
Yes. Yeah, I think that’s what it was.
DID HE EVER SAY THAT THESE SMALL, DOLL-LIKE GREY BODIES WERE IN FACT ANDROIDS, ORGANIC ROBOTS MADE BY SOMETHING ELSE?
Nope, he never mentioned anything about robots.
WHAT DID HE SAY ABOUT THE BODIES THAT WERE DEAD IN TERMS OF WHAT HAD KILLED THEM? WAS HE LOOKING AT BURNS? WOUNDS? HOLES? WHAT KILLED THEM?
A lot of it were burns, parts blown off from the crash. Sometimes they didn’t see any marks, but they were dead. But they were not always in one piece.
DID HE SAY THAT THERE WAS EVEN A RUMOR AMONG THE AIR FORCE PERSONNEL THAT HE WAS WORKING WITH, OR GOVERNMENT INTEL AGENTS, ABOUT WHAT AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL WAR IN GREENLAND ON EARTH WOULD BE ABOUT?
What he said was that we had some kind of deal with one of the races and it was made with one of the Presidents — I think Truman made the deal with the Greys.
Yes, he always referred to that. He talked about there were even some fights here in the United States on some of the bases. But the main one was in Greenland and the Aleutian Islands. This was a war because it happened all the time, every day. Sometimes with a few ships. Sometimes with hundreds. The skies were filled. There were ships coming down left and right and they were all terrified because our men on the ground could not do anything.
They had to hurry up and either help or haul off. And this has never been made public.
WELL, WHAT DID THEY COME TO UNDERSTAND WAS THE REASON THAT EXTRATERRESTRIALS WOULD BE FIGHTING EACH OTHER IN GREENLAND FOR MONTHS ON EARTH?
The only thing he said was that there were two warring sides of aliens fighting (in Greenland and Aleutian Islands). They were told not to talk about it. This was straight across the base. They were all warned — they would die (if they talked)!”
