JFK, UFOs & Bigfoot

By Greg May - Do you know the last official act of John F. Kennedy as president of the United States?

The day before he was assassinated in Dallas Kennedy dedicated six new aerospace medical research buildings at Brooks Air Force Base in Texas. There were rumors that JFK may have seen the alien bodies retrieved from the UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. It is said that another former United States president took TV variety star Jackie Gleason – an avid UFO fan – out to Homestead Air Force Base to show him alien bodies ‘on ice’. It makes you wonder just how many of our presidents have viewed these alien cadavers.

While at Brooks Air Force Base President Kennedy met Major General Theodore C. Bedwell, Jr. who had served as Deputy Surgeon and Chief of Industrial Medicine at Wright Field in Ohio – the location where the Roswell cadavers had been taken following their retrieval in 1947.

A colleague of Major General Bedwell, Jr. claims to have read a classified report that included a number of color photographs of a highly unusual humanoid body recovered by NASA security personnel at what it known today as the John H. Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field, Ohio.

This was where liquid hydrogen rocket engines were developed that enabled NASA’s Apollo astronauts to reach the Moon.

Two nights before the body was taken there had been a wave of UFO activity in the woods surrounding the Glenn facility that resembled small, fast-moving balls of blue light darting and zig-zagging around the NASA installation.

Interestingly, this was similar to the UFO activity described to me by Tom Burnette, co-author of ‘Bigfoot: Exploring the Myth & Discovering the Truth’. Burnette had observed similar UFO activity near his home in the Cherokee Mountains of North Carolina. Tom claims Bigfoot-like creatures are all over the Smoky Mountains but, unlike his mountain neighbors who moved after experiencing frightening encounters with these mountain monsters he is determined not to let them run him off his property.

Once, Tom Burnette had rented his mountain cabin to a couple who – only after a couple of nights – called him from a store in town requesting their deposit back after being frightened by the sound of helicopter blades and the sight of bright lights in the woods in the middle of the night.

The creature that had been shot and killed by NASA security near the John H. Glenn Research Center was described as ‘an immense, approximately 9-foot tall, powerfully-muscled monster’ that matches the description of Bigfoot. The beast was allegedly autopsied and found to have 32 teeth like most humans, vocal chords resembling those of humans and, even stranger was the small, metallic device found embedded within its lower left arm that resembled a highly-advanced tracking device or transmitter.

Eventually the remains of the creature – including the transmitter – were taken to the Foreign Technology Division of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

Nothing else is known regarding the incident.

Stan Gordon’s Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook chronicles the flap of Bigfoot/UFO sightings in Pennsylvania during the 70’s but inasmuch as this event occurred in 1963 it may very well be the first record on file with the U.S. government of the enigmatic relationship between UFOs and Bigfoot.
