For three U.S. Army veterans, “irony” is their account of a UFO sighting in 2014 being told after years of the military suppressing it on the same day as the U.S. Congress holds UFO hearings with the Pentagon in the name of ‘openness’. While the majority of the military UFO sightings getting all of the media attention in the past few years have been made by Navy pilots and personnel flying and floating on American coasts, these three witnesses were Army ground forces stationed on the in the Sinai Desert on the Israel/Egypt border. One way these Army personnel were like their Navy counterparts in the UFO witnessing game – their accounts were suppressed by commanding officers. The Daily Mail has finally given them their chance to tell their stories in an exclusive interview.
Sergeant Travis Bingham, E4 Specialist Vishal Singh, and Private First Class Dovell Engram were part of the 3rd Cavalry serving on a Multinational Force and Observers mission (MFO) deployed to monitor the border for nine months in December 2014. Bingham says he was notified of the UFOs by Engram, who was on watch at Observation Post 3-1 in Sinai near the south end of the Israel-Egypt border. Engram claims the object he saw was bright and spinning – a description which was confirmed by other outposts up to 200 miles away after he made some “Did you see that?” calls. At that point, he notified Bingham, his commanding officer, who gave this description:
“I would describe it as a big object with several smaller objects, which appeared to be communicating, or scuffling, like a dogfight in the air. We knew it wasn’t our military and it was baffling.”
“To this day, I’ve never seen anything like the craft, covering such distance with extreme speeds.”
Singh says he watched the objects with night-vision goggles and determined the biggest one was oval, about the size of a jumbo jet and flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet at an estimated speed of several thousand miles per hour. He described it and the smaller objects as “moving like fireflies, left, right, up and down” and making instantaneous high-speed turns.
