Dear Mr. Vike,

My son sent me a link to the website regarding scars that are
"scoop  marks" and asked me to tell you my story.

I actually have two scars on my thighs. My skin is extremely
white unless I have been in the sun, so the one on the left
thigh is nearly invisible and the one on the right nearly so.
The scar on the left thigh is oval shaped, about the size of a
thumbprint, and full of tiny pinpricks. It is located high up
near my groin and originally was on the inside of my thigh. Over
the years (and as I gained weight), the scar migrated toward the
front of my thigh.

I have a strange memory about receiving this scar. I remember
that I was less than six years old. I was in a doctor's office
and he gave me what I remembered as a "vaccination". I was lying
on a table screaming as he did the procedure, and something or
someone was holding me down. I could see my mother behind the
doctor. She was standing still, almost frozen, staring at us and
not reacting at all - which was extremely strange since she
normally was overly reactive and could not stand to even see me
get an injection. Years later I mentioned the incident to her
and she denied it ever happened, even when I showed her the

The scar on my right thigh is triangular and featureless, about
a quarter inch in length. I have attached a photo of this scar.
I have no memory of receiving this scar, although I can remember
what caused every other scar I have. My son wrote you and told
you about the day we talked about our scars (erroneously stating
that mine was on the right thigh). What I find very odd  is that
he cannot remember that his sister was there when we discussed
our scars. My daughter also showed us a scar on her thigh that
was identical to ours. None of us remember getting these scars,
nor can I remember any injuries my children might have received
that would have resulted in this kind of scarring.

When I lived in El Paso, Texas, I often watched the desert sky
at night hoping to see shooting stars. I don't recall ever
seeing anything that might have been considered a UFO - at least
not at night, but I do remember one incident very vividly - and
it happened in broad daylight. I was driving on what used to be
called War Road in Northeast El Paso in the summer of 1977.

We frequently drove this road to and from our house. My children
were both in the car with me on this occasion. An extension of
the University of Texas at El Paso had recently been built
nearby, but at the time, this road was not as busy as it has
become now that houses have been built all along it and it has
become a major freeway called Gateway North/South.

I had turned onto War Road from Hondo Pass and as I neared the
college I saw a small circular object in the sky. It looked like
an oversized Frisbee at first. As it came closer, I slowed my
vehicle to get a better look at it. I remember yelling to the
children to look at the object, but they couldn't see it from
the back seat. The object was traveling slowly across the road,
like it was hovering, and it was spinning as it went. Small
markings around the edge resembled windows. It appeared to be
about three foot across and less than a foot deep at the center
axis. I had the vivid impression that there was nothing alive
within it, more like it was a remote control device. Suddenly,
as though whatever was controlling it became aware of my
presence, it shot down at an angle into the desert between me
and the college buildings. I stopped the car, intending to go
look at it more closely. Just before I got out of the car,
however, I glanced in the rearview mirror and saw several cars
coming toward me. There was no place to park as there was no
shoulder on the road and I had to drive on to avoid being hit.

The area where this occurred was near several military bases,
including Fort Bliss and MacGregor Range. When I mentioned the
incident to friends, several warned me that I shouldn't tell too
many people about it because it might have been a test flight by
the military of something created using alien technology. I have
no idea what it really was.

My son told you about his dreams and wanted me to tell you of
similar ones I had most of my life. I had dreams many times that
were always the same. I was in a place that was formed of metal
walls. In my dreams I always thought of it as "home" although it
never resembled any place I ever lived. I would decide to go
somewhere and instead of walking I would bend at the waist, lift
my feet and float. I would propel myself by pushing on the walls
or grabbing projections and pull myself onward. These dreams
occurred when I was a child long before the first space flights
and before I ever read any science fiction stories. They
continued until my mid-30's.

My son also wanted me to mention that the extensive medical
records of my son, my daughter and myself were "lost" from the
military hospital in El Paso - Beaumont - within two years of my
husband's retirement.

Mr. Vike, I would prefer that you didn't use my full name if you
decide to have my story posted on the website. Other than that,
you are free to use this information as you wish. I hope you
find this useful.


My deepest thanks to the person for their story.
