Is There a USO Base Near Catalina Island?

The answer to that question, according to an ex-military contractor, is yes. But we'll get to that in a moment...

Santa Catalina Island
The body of water between Santa Catalina Island and the Long Beach area of southern California have long been a known hotspot for UFO sightings for decades. From the 50's up to present day there have been literally hundreds if not thousands of unexplained sightings. Local researcher Ann Druffel stated, “This body of water lies between the coastlines of Southern California and Santa Catalina Island, 20 miles offshore to the southwest. The area has for at least thirty years been the scene of UFO reports of all kinds." MUFON field investigator Bill Hamilton writes, “For years witnesses have seen many types of UFO cruising off the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California. UFOs have actually been seen to come out of the water in the San Pedro Channel.”

In the 1980's an anonymous gentleman (a senior electronics engineer) sailing on a misty day between Santa Barbara Island and Santa Cruz Island spotted a “fluorescent green colored light” ahead of him. Thinking it was another boat using bright lights to navigate the fog, he stopped and waited for it to pass. As it approached he was unable to distinguish any detail. Within a quarter mile of him and headed directly at his 38 foot sailboat, he recounted: “I finally realized that this dumb thing was underwater...I’m guessing it was maybe 300 feet in diameter, but I couldn’t get any vertical dimension on it because it was under me in the water. It literally passed directly underneath me.” As the object passed beneath him he took several readings from the depth finder and determined that this object was about 100 feet beneath him.

But I don't want to get too deep into the history of these sightings since researchers like Preston Dennett from MUFON have already done a fantastic job of that. His compilation of 50 of the best reports from the area is well worth the read and provides a great timeline of key events. There are also some good resources out there listing the possible locations of underground bases throughout California. But what particularly struck me was his mention of the book "Beyond My Wildest Dreams" by Kim Carlsberg. Her autobiographical account of a series of alien abductions from her Malibu home starting in the early 1990's recounts examination by Gray and Mantid type extraterrestrials.
On August 30, 1992, Carlsberg recalls being taken to what appears to be a vast underground complex where she sees many other abductees and ETs of various types. “…I woke up in a lobby where many humans were milling around. They reminded me of patients waiting to endure their turns in a dentist’s chair.” Carlsberg also recalled sitting in a large “auditorium” with many other abductees where she was told by the ETs that she was being “prepared for something.”
Again, this is one of those times where I remember reading a book about the abduction phenomenon but I never really connected all of the little dots together to form the big picture. Research into this topic is a bit like looking at a stereogram, you have to defocus your eyes and look at a point beyond the noise in order to see the image. Research into the abduction phenomenon, for me, has a been much like that. All of these little synchronous details from Ed Walters abduction account, from Whitley Streiber, from Linda Cortile, Travis Walton... they all start to match up and you begin to see  the big picture.

Hughes Aircraft Corporation - El Segundo, California
So what is this 'confirmation' I originally spoke of? Well, earlier this week one of our operatives in the field reported back with some very interesting information about a woman (we'll call her Martha for the sake of this article) they met a year or so ago. Martha worked for a division of Hughes Aircraft corporation dealing with electronics systems for many years and retired from the company within the last decade. For most of her employment at the company her job was of a classified nature and she was unable to talk to friends and family about what she did. I have her actual name and looked up her personal information in order to verify this as a fact. She wishes to remain anonymous, so we will respect her wishes. Suffice it to say, she is who she claims to be and her employment history checks out. It has only been recently that she can talk about what she did because this was during the first Gulf war and, as she said to our contact, "Everyone knows about this stuff now so it doesn't much matter." Without going into too much detail it involved encrypted point-to-point military transmissions.

But that's not really the interesting part. It's what she said next that struck a chord, she said "There are far more important things the government spends a lot of effort to keep hidden. Do not think for one moment we are alone in this universe, because we aren't." She continued on to state that "the military is directly involved with these aliens and they even have an underwater base in the San Pedro Basin near Catalina Island where they work with the Grays." She asked our contact if they were familiar with the "Grays" and the reply was "of course, how is it that you know this?" Martha went on to explain that she had heard different pieces of information from different sources over the years, but wouldn't elaborate too much further other than to be confident in the validity of this information. She cryptically added, "It's all out there on the internet by now, I'm sure." Our contact stated that eventually the whole alien presence would likely be disclosed to the public. Martha replied, "Oh, I wouldn't be surprised at all. They've been here for a very long time."

So here again we have a highly intelligent professional who was employed in a classified position with a military contractor who supports the theory of a possible USO base near Catalina Island in a very matter-of-fact manner. She's elderly, but still quite tech savvy, and with no apparent reason to make up a story like this, Martha strikes me as further confirmation of something decidedly extraterrestrial lurking in the waters off Long Beach, California.
