US Navy vet, Kevin, called into Coast to Coast (hosted by Jimmy Church) to tell of his bizarre abduction experience in 1982. He was allowed to describe his entire encounter.

“I was abducted by aliens in 1982. I was in the United States Navy at the time. I was aboard a ship, the USS San Bernadino which is a tank landing ship, and its number was 1189 and this guy was aboard the ship with me. I've known him since the first day I came on board the ship and he and I were like best of friends for four years.

One night I was doing some work down in my space because in the medical field. So I was down there catching up on some paperwork and he came down to visit me and he told me that he had been abducted by extraterrestrials since he was eight years old and I took it with a grain of salt. We had a conversation about it. He caught me by surprise when he told me he was abducted. And I'd known him for four years and this was the first time the subject ever came up. Now, this was on a Sunday night. Like I said, I took it with a grain of salt. I was like, 'Yeah, okay, sure.'

Now we were out at sea. We were on a West Pacific cruise which puts us on the other side of the world, you know, like between Japan and Korea, Singapore, Thailand, on the other side of the world. Now we weren't anywhere near California at this time. Our ship was a tank landing ship which is designed to go right up on the beach, the front ends open up and the marines can drive their jeeps and their tanks and all that off into a battle scene. We had been out to sea for a week at this time. And, like I said, this started on a Sunday night. (host Jimmy Church asked for his friend's name) I'll give you his last name, his name was Reich. R-E-I-C-H (spells it out).

Like I said, I don't know exactly where we were because we had been out to sea for a week. All you could see was the ocean everywhere you looked. Now this was on a Sunday night and, like I said, I took it with a grain of salt. Now, Tuesday night, he came back down to my space because I was still doing some paperwork, you know, and he told me that his 'friends' came and got him. I was like, 'Oh really, that's nice.' You know, because we were still out at sea. And I said, 'Where'd they take you?' He said, 'They took me to your house in Kankakee, Illinois' And I was like, 'Oh really, what did you see?'

So he started describing things to me that he saw and the more he was telling me, the more upset I was getting because I knew what he was telling me was absolutely fact. The only trouble was, it wasn't fact in 1982. The first thing he was telling me about was a 1966 Ford Galaxy Fire that we owned and had a lot of detail about it including a chocolate milkshake stain that I had done in the backseat of the car. Well, we went to Dairy Queen, and, stupid me, I spilled my milkshake all over it and it stained the seat. And he's giving me that kind of detail. We bought the car in 1966 but we traded the car in 1973, sometime in 1973. (Church asks him if he mentioned this to him sometime in the past). No, no. That's just it. And then I asked him what else he saw and then he started describing our living-room furniture that we had which we had gotten rid of and gotten new furniture in 1968 or 69. I can't remember exactly what year. I knew the furniture that he was describing but it was not the furniture that we owned in 1982.

I was getting more and more upset. I figured the CIA couldn't even have that much information on me, with that kind of detail. So I asked him, 'Where did you get all this?' And he said, 'I just came from your house like fifteen minutes ago.' And I knew that. The thing is, Jimmy, I knew what he was talking about was true and I also knew that it wasn't today. You know, that day. The particular day that this was happening. So I asked him, 'How did you know this?' And he said, 'My friends.' I said, 'Well, if you're telling me the truth, I want to meet your little green friends.' And he said, 'I don't know for sure if you can or not but I'll talk to them. I'll let you know.'

So, it was a couple of days later, he came back down in the space and he told me, 'Yeah, I talked to them and they said you can meet them.' And I said, 'Really, when?' And he said, 'You'll find out.' And so it was the next day. Well, he told me, 'They're here.' And I said, 'Where?' He said, 'Up on the main deck.' So I go up on the main deck and I see this star. That's the only way I can describe it to you. It was a star. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. It was shining every single color of the rainbow, all the way through it, all around it. And it was star-shaped. And I thought to myself, This could be the star of Bethlehem. I really thought that. It was beautiful. It was as bright as the sun but it didn't hurt my eyes.

Two guys were standing in front of me. They were having a conversation and I was trying to get their attention. It was about the same altitude as a jetliner flies, you know, 30 to 35 thousand feet and it was about, and I'm not exaggerating when I say this, 3 to 3 and a half miles wide, 2 to 2 and a half miles tall. You basically have to be blind not to see it. And these guys are having a conversation next to me and I grabbed this one guy next to me and I start screaming and jumping up and down and yelling. I just want this guy to see it as a witness and I got a death grip on him and I'm shaking him as hard as I can. And he just doesn't even respond to me. (Jimmy asks how many sailors were on the ship and how many guys were on the deck). About 240. This wasn't at night. That was around 11:30 in the morning. I just saw the two. I don't know how many that were on there but neither one of them saw it. They never responded to me. They didn't even respond. I got a death grip on him and I'm shaking him as hard as I can and he doesn't even respond to me and I guarantee you, Jimmy, you're standing in a crowd and somebody grabs you by the shoulder and starts shaking you, you respond.

I blink and now I'm on their ship and I'm looking down and I can see my ship and then we did a flyby and I saw myself on the ship shaking this guy, jumping up and down. And now, I don't know if they... as soon as I got on the ship, my first thought was, 'My god, this can't be happening!' And as soon as I thought about it, a voice came into my head and said: 'Yes it is Kevin. This is what you wanted.' And my second thought was, as we were doing this flyby of the ship and I saw myself, I said to myself, 'I'm AWOL.' So then, as soon as I thought, I was AWOL, a second voice came into my head and said: 'They don't even know you're gone.' That's exactly what they said. And then it just went from there. (he goes on to say about how he actually wrote the entire event down, about 30 pages, describing each detail and sent it to George Noory back in 2010).'

They took me to the future and they took me to the past and everything was telepathically. They told me, that some of what you see is yet to be. Some of what you see has already happened. And they took me back to Kankakee. I saw myself walking out of my house, talking to my grandmother who died in 1972. And then, at the end of it, it was 20 or 25 minutes, they were showing me different things. They were showing me Armageddon-type things. Things that I didn't want to know. Things that I don't even want to know. (Church asks what year was this) I have no idea. They didn't tell me what year they were taking me. The last thing I saw was, that I was riding a motorcycle and I got hit broadside by a car and I was lying next to the bike.

Now everything they showed me only lasted about 7 to 10 seconds, just enough time for me to realize what I was looking at and now I'm looking at something different. And this lasted about a half an hour. And then, the very last thing they showed me was the motorcycle accident and I'm laying next to it and I'm not moving or anything and I thought they showed me how I'm going to die. And that motorcycle accident happened on my 2003 Harley Davidson and for 15 days I was knocked out. Of course, I didn't know I was knocked out when I saw it, I thought I had died. So for 21 years, I thought I knew how I was going to die. (Church asks him to describe the ship, the beings, etc.) The first thing I saw when I got on board everywhere I saw was light light-screens. I could see the things that they were showing me and stuff like I was looking through a window. It didn't matter, like in my peripheral vision all I could see was solid and it was white on the inside of the wall but if I turned my head, I was looking right out through that area. See but in my peripheral vision, it was solid.

And when this all ended, I realized that I was standing down a metal grate. You know, like a fire escape grate. And it was grey, like battleship grey. And I was standing above another level. And I was with them for about 40 minutes before I finally got to look at them. (Church asks how long he was with them for) for about 45 minutes to an hour. I mean, you know. I thought I could handle it. And when I was with them, I asked them, 'Are you gonna eat me?' And they told me, 'You watch too many horror movies.' which really isn't true because I haven't seen that many. I didn't ask them to define that. That was their response when I asked them if they were gonna eat me. They said, 'No, you watch too many horror movies.' And then I asked them what they looked like and they said, 'We're not little and we're not green.' and you want to talk about an understatement, when I finally got the courage up to turn around and look at them, they were 12 to 15 feet tall.

(Church asks what happened when he got back) When I came back I was lying on my rack. I sit up in my bed and something is off. My uniform, my dungaree uniform was just soaked to the skin with sweat. And I was hyperventilating. And I thought, 'Oh god, this has just been a dream' and then I turned to get out of my rack and my friend was standing there. He's got this ear-to-ear grin and he goes (mocking up a sinister-sounding voice), 'Tell me about your ride, Kevin.' I never talked to him after that. I avoided him like the plague. I thought he was one of them.”

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - cryptid & unexplained accounts directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monster Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.

Featured in this edition:

Over time, there have been numerous accounts of extraterrestrials or alien beings assisting and healing afflicted humans. Many of these accounts are hard to fathom, but there are a few that make one wonder about the authenticity of the claim. I suppose it may be a matter of 'faith.' Religious people would believe that a divine spirit interceded and performed a miracle. Folks who reject traditional organized religion, including many who refer to themselves as spiritual, would state that divine healing is extraterrestrial intervention. 

I realize that the examples I'm about to detail are just a small sample of the claims available, though I have had direct contact with each of these experiencers.

So, relax, listen, and contemplate the accounts. I will present the reports in detail and, afterward, I will attempt to answer your questions from the chat room.
