Don Ecker Is Back !

DonEcker-01b.png Don Ecker became interested in the UFO question in 1966, when along with several other people he was witness to a sighting of the enigma. “It was unlike anything I had ever seen before, and I realized then that there was much more to this than the authorities were letting on.”

After graduating from high school in 1968, Ecker attended college for one year and then enlisted in the United States Army. He was selected for the elite Army Security Agency, where he volunteered for Special Operations. He served in Southeast Asia for 26 months, was wounded twice, decorated and then returned to the U.S. He returned to college for another year, then applied to his home town police department, where he became an officer.


In 1986, while a member of his department’s SWAT Team, Ecker was wounded, which led to his retirement. While recuperating, he started to research and write on the UFO mystery. As a criminal investigator in 1982, he had been leading an investigation into several cattle mutilations, which Ecker later discovered where somehow connected to the UFO mystery.

As a former law enforcement officer and criminal investigator with over 10 years experience, he brought legitimacy to a field that has for years suffered being painted with a fringe brush. He has written numerous articles for the definitive UFO publication, UFO Magazine, as well as articles for international publications, the United Kingdom’s Fortean Times, Omni, the Compuserve System, and the ParaNet Computer Data Base.
