When Dozens of Korean War GIs Claimed a UFO Made Them Sick

• In May 1951, one year into the Korean War, PFC Francis P. Wall and his regiment found themselves stationed near Chorwon, about 60 miles north of Seoul. Suddenly, as they were preparing to bombard a nearby village with artillery, the soldiers saw an orange-glowing flying craft resembling a “jack-o-lantern” come wafting down across the mountain and into the Korean town they were about to attack.

• As the artillery bursts began, the soldiers could see that the strange craft hovering in the center of the town remained unharmed, according to Wall in a 1987 interview with John P. Timmerman of the Center for UFO Studies.

• Suddenly, the object began to pulsate a brilliant blue-green light. The U.S. soldiers began firing at the object with armor-piercing bullets from an M-I rifle. As the bullets ‘dinged’ off of the craft, it began to swerve from side to side as its lights flashed on and off. The object then strafed the U.S. soldiers with “some form of a ray that was emitted in pulses, in waves that you could visually see only when it was aiming directly at you,” recalled Wall.

• Wall remembered a burning, tingling sensation sweeping over his body. The soldiers rushed into underground bunkers and peeped through the windows, watching as the craft hovered above them and then shot off, at a 45-degree angle. “It was there and was gone,” said Wall.

• Three days after the incident, the entire company of men was evacuated by ambulance. When they received medical treatment, they were found to have dysentery and an extremely high white-blood-cell count, possible symptoms of radiation.

• Before the Korean War ended in July 1953, dozens of soldiers reported seeing UFOs over the battlefields. As many as 42 of these reports were corroborated by additional witness reports.

• At first, the U.S. suspected these mysterious craft belonged to the Soviet Union. But after the war it was learned that the Soviets themselves had reported seeing strange unidentified craft over Korean battlefields.

 

In May 1951, one year into the Korean War, PFC Francis P. Wall and his regiment found themselves stationed near Chorwon, about 60 miles north of Seoul. As they were preparing to bombard a nearby village with artillery, all of a sudden, the soldiers saw a strange sight up in the hills—like “a jack-o-lantern come wafting down across the mountain.”

What happened after—the pulsing, “attacking” light, the lingering debilitating symptoms—would mystify many for decades to come.

As the GIs watched, the craft made its way down into the village, where the artillery air bursts were starting to explode. “We further noticed that this object would get right into…the center of an airburst of artillery and yet remain unharmed,” Wall later told John P. Timmerman of the Center for UFO Studies in a 1987 interview. Suddenly, the object turned, Wall said. And whereas at first, it had glowed orange, now it was a pulsating blue-green brilliant light. He asked his company commander for permission to fire at the object with armor-piercing bullets from an M-I rifle. As the bullets hit the body of the craft, he recalled, they made a metallic “ding.” The object started behaving still more erratically, shunting from side to side as its lights flashed on and off.

Wall’s recollections of what happened next are stranger still. “We were attacked,” he said, “swept by some form of a ray that was emitted in pulses, in waves that you could visually see only when it was aiming directly at you. That is to say, like a searchlight sweeps around and the segments of light…you would see it coming at you.”

He remembered a burning, tingling sensation sweeping over his body, as if he were being penetrated. The men rushed into underground bunkers and peeped through the windows, watching as the craft hovered above them and then shot off, at a 45-degree angle. “It’s that quick,” he said. “It was there and was gone.”
