UFO Perspectives: Gerald Ford

During 1966, a rash of UFO sightings occurred throughout the state of Michigan. The sightings were reported by upstanding citizens and police. The sightings caught the attention of the national media and were featured in a CBS News Special Report hosted by Walter Cronkite titled "UFO: Friend or Foe." 

Gerald Ford, who would later go on to become vice-president and President of The United States, was then the US Representative for Michigan's 5th Congressional District. He called for a Congressional investigation and sounded quite indignant at what he saw as "flippant" responses to the Michigan sighings from the Air Force.

Here's audio of him being interviewed on a radio show back in 1966.
