Kevin D Randle Returns

USI Calgary

J. Randall Murphy
Staff member
KDR-01a.png Kevin D. Randle served in the United States Army during both the Vietnam War and the Second Gulf War. In Vietnam, he piloted UH-1 helicopters while assigned to the 116th Assault Helicopter Company based at Cu Chi, and later with the 187th Assault Helicopter Company stationed at Tay Ninh.

Between the Vietnam War and the War in Iraq, Randle was in the United States Air Force, both on active duty and in the active reserves. In the Air Force, Randle pulled duty as a public affairs officer, a general’s aide, and an intelligence officer. He was promoted several times and completed his Air Force Reserve duty as a captain and the director of intelligence for an airlift group.

After the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Randle joined the Iowa National Guard as an intelligence officer. His unit, the 234th Signal Battalion, deployed in Iraq in June 2003, to the Baghdad International Airport, returning in May 2004. Randle was awarded a Combat Action Badge for his participation in several firefights in Iraq. Randle retired from the Iowa National Guard as a lieutenant colonel in 2009.

Kevin is also a top notch ufologist who is considered the foremost living expert on the Roswell incident. He is well known for his debates with the late ufologist and nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, and is the author of Project Moondust, Conspiracy of Silence, A History of UFO Crashes, Roswell in the 21st Century, and the co-author of UFO Crash at Roswell - The Truth About the UFO Crash at Roswell, plus several sci-fi novels.

In addition to Roswell, Kevin's depth of research on other cases is unparalleled. His book Invasion Washington: UFOs Over the Capitol covers one of the most underrated UFO waves in US history. He is also working on a new book and will be giving us an insider's view on this week's episode.

Hello Kevin. I wondered if you have any thoughts or comments on SAPs [special access programs] or black-budget programs, especially since Richard Dolan has been reporting on what he considers “The UFO Leak of the Century.”

"This concerned the fifteen pages of notes taken by Dr. Eric Davis following his 2002 meeting with retired Vice Admiral Thomas R. Wilson [Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency July 1999 – July 2002] concerning Wilson’s failed attempt to gain access to deeply secret and mostly privatized black-budget programs to reverse-engineer alien technology. Technology, in the words of the notes, 'not made by man – not by human hands.'”​

Any thoughts on how far the military space program goes? Do you think there have been non-NASA, military astronauts, for example?

What are your thoughts about the Nimitz case and the whole UFO scene getting a bit of a boost in the mainstream, especially in light of the recent appearance of Cmdr. David Fravor on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast talking about the case and walking everyone though the tic-tac video, currently hitting around 2.3 million views on YouTube?

As a former military pilot, what are your thoughts about that and other TTSA promoted videos (e.g. Gimbal and Go Fast)? Are they legit representations of US military aircraft footage?

Just a side note, in case someone's not acquainted: Joe Rogan is a comedian/actor and MMA commentator who runs a very popular podcast with a pretty large audience, especially among younger people. David Fravor appeared on the October 5th episode, I'd recommend people check it out. Believe it or not, Rogan recently also had Bob Lazar on.
