The Year 2023 Anachronisms
« on: October 16, 2022, 10:50:53 AM »

The Mefford Field Anachronisms cost US Taxpayers tens of millions to transport them from Mefford Field Airport to Lemoore Naval Air Station (NAS) Site 29-B tying up substantial personnel & material resources, anticipating future paranormal physical appearances of other costly to transport objects on US sovereign territory & possessions at 5:00 p.m. Washington D.C. Time Monday, November 14, 2022  The President Of The United States on advice of the Joint Chiefs Of Staff (JCS) signed a “technical amendment” to the Sunday, November 13, 2022 Incident-Specific National Emergency Executive Order establishing The Pentagon Office Of Paranormal Objects Management ("OPOM") tasked with “planning for & cost-effectively securing them” away from public view tapping congressionally approved National Emergency Contingency Funds to finance the office during FY 2022-2023 before the National Emergency expired midnight, Tuesday, November 15th. Barely a day earlier all information concerning removals & relocations of The Mefford Field Anachronisms, forensic examinations, intelligence evaluations, theories & speculations regarding their sudden appearances & restorations were classified Top Secret placed under custodianship of a OF-5 Senior Pentagon Intelligence Officer with two OF-4 alternates directly subordinate to JCS or by The Whitehouse whenever the information needed to be reviewed by The President and/or his national security staff, with OPOM’s creation on the 15th the custodianship staff & information was moved to its Records Unit.

Jokingly called “BH1355” (“Black Hole 1355”) by some Pentagon et. al. government personnel after the Top Secret Pentagon building section OPOM was located OPOM staff were uptight-lipped to point of arrogance, deliberately selected for being romantically unattached, unsocial, uncompromising in guarding records & cost accounting associated with paranormal objects management ala The Mefford FieldAnachronisms they were The Pentagon’s most competent “paper pushers” grudgingly respected by all “doing business” with them, including Lemoore NAS Commander Captain John Dudley Masterson who on Monday, November 21, 2022 formally briefed OPOM staff headed by a United States Space Force Colonel of the tumultuous events of November 13th & 14th. Emphatically recommending that a permanent location for relocating The Mefford Field Anachronisms be selected ASAP, Site 29-B not securable for their long-term storage never mind hampering NAS operations given their international notoriety, Captain Masterson stated two very sophisticated sensor-laden unmarked long-range Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs drones) were shot down by Shore Police guarding Hangar C where Preston’s Pride was stored on November 17th later found to been operated by Mainland Chinese citizens they skipping the country that evening for Shanghai via Mexico City;

“Ain’t no way this can go on, no doubt other drones have flown over we’ve not caught!”

he'd said sarcastically whilst looking OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong straight in the eyes;

“I‘d got your drift Captain…”

she laconically replied,

“…The Whitehouse (via JCS) already has ordered locations be found to move them (The Mefford Field Anachronisms) ASAP, meantime we ask you do whatever’s necessary to discourage UAV flyovers. I’ll personally request JCS ‘up priority’ on whatever material & personnel you need to keep trespassers away from Site 29-B!”

Captain Masterson’s security concerns certainly weren’t unappreciated, since November 13, 2022 Whitehouse National Security staff were deeply troubled unfriendly nation-state intelligence operatives never mind supposed friendly ones were so quickly attempting to gain as much information possible about Site 29-B goings-on despite strict security protocols first of which barring nationals of any country entering the NAS till The Mefford Field Anachronisms could be relocated, flight training of US allied pilots suspended on the 13th till further notice, no time also was wasted deciding where to relocate The Mefford Field Anachronisms JCS on Monday, November 21st charging OPOM responsibility for doing so.

Early on the most promising relocation spot for them was Mountain Home AFB Idaho home of the Air Combat Command 366th Fighter Wing sporting a long runway to accommodate heavy-lift transport aircraft, far from populated areas it also lacked notoriety ala Homey Airport (Area 51) & Wright-Patterson AFB as UFO cultist Meccas. On Wednesday December 14, 2022 The Whitehouse via Presidential Executive Order on JCS’ advice authorized construction of a permanent & expandable Air & Ground Paranormal Objects Management Center ("AGPOM") at Mountain Home AFB code named Site 29-A, “one letter superior” to Lemoore Naval Air Station Paranormal Objects Site 29-B where the Mefford Field Anachronisms were being temporarily stored, under Space, Air Force & Army joint command during FY 2022-2023 to accommodate paranormally appearing aircraft, terrestrial vehicular objects & structures, be ready to receive The Mefford Field Anachronisms no later than Friday, September 1, 2023.

As designed by US Air Force Construction Engineering in December 2022 the 200-acre Site 29-A could cost-effectively accommodate & securely store 10 Lockheed C-5 Galaxy-sized aircraft, very large terrestrial vehicles, limited number of transported and/or unassembled structures, two fully equipped & staffed paranormal objects evaluation centers ala that for Site-29-B till 2030 at which time the US Government must decide whether to indefinitely store any additional objects still not knowing reasons behind their paranormal appearances, until Site 29-A was operational on or before September 1, 2023 any more aircraft any terrestrial vehicles, structures or other objects paranormally appearing on US sovereign territory & possessions were to be seized & temporarily stored at the nearest Air Force Base, Army Camp or US Government compound capable of securely storing them.  The November 14, 2022 Presidential Executive Order creating AGPOMs also included creating Waterborne Paranormal Objects Management Centers ("WPOMs") under US Navy command one each at yet to be designated Atlantic & Pacific US Naval Bases for retrieving waterborne paranormal objects each staging 960-foot long, 80,000-ton Vigorous-class floating dry docks on a Top Priority basis except for urgent lifesaving operations requiring their use on or below US Territorial waters, operations on international waters officially deemed as “Salvage Of Sovereign US Property” per international law.

For intelligence cover reasons AGPOM & WPOMs were not organizationally under OPOM but commanded by individual OF-5 rank or higher officers they acting in concert providing mutual supportive personnel & material for paranormal object seizure, recovery, storage & evaluation based on lessons learned from “managing” The Mefford Field Anachronisms. OPOMs official role was planning, financial & records archival management of paranormal objects unofficially it also managed AGPOM & WPOMCs given it reported to The Whitehouse via JCS, a potential source of frustration whenever center commanders urgently needed personnel & material resources requiring JCS-granted commandeering powers ala to Captain Masterson securing & relocating The Mefford Field Anachronisms. With formal establishment of a command & control bureaucracy for long-term management of The Mefford Field Anachronisms well as any new paranormal objects the US Government did what was reasonable not yet knowing how nor why they’d appeared, whomever toyed with the government like a blind & deaf mouse ala The Mefford Field Anachronisms easily could overwhelm it with slew of new paranormal objects of any size appearing in quick succession, none would appear anywhere else on Earth rest of 2022 the year 2023 however would be altogether different.

The Meeson Farms Anachronism
« Reply #1 on: October 21, 2022, 08:53:17 AM »
Left, B & O Museum's 1851 Cumberland Valley Railroad Wilmarth 2-2-2T "Pioneer" Locomotive - Right, Angle Jay & Millie Meeson Had Of The Near Identical Meeson Farms Anachronism Whilst Materializing

The Meeson Farms Anachronism

For three generations behind them each Jason (“Jay” at all times except formally) Ludwig Meeson & wife of 70 years Mildred (“Millie” at all times except formally) Jean both age 91 and in exceptionally good health together owned four square miles of crop farms five miles west of Miller, South Dakota south of US Route 14 (197th Street) parallel to 355th Avenue. Founded in 1881 by Henry Miller, an entrepreneur from Blairstown, Iowa the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company (“C&N”) line ran through it since 2014 the Rapid City, Pierre and Eastern Railroad  (“RCP&E”) owned & operated by the Genesee & Wyoming Short Line Railroad latter’s orange & black striped locomotives distinctive rolling features across central South Dakota plains between Wyoming & Minnesota. In the 1950s Jay’s father Marvin Leeman Meeson living well to the ripe old age of 105 paid C&N to lay spur tracks north & south of the rail line east of & parallel to 355th Avenue to grain silos adjacent to each, farm equipment & maintenance structures, housing for mechanics & laborers, housing for Meeson family members nearby, including Jay’s‘ & Millie’s sons Marvin ("Marv" at all times except formally) Ludwig & Evans ("Ev" at all times except formally as well) Barclay carrying on traditions of South Dakoda farming. An avid early USA railroad history buff since childhood Jay loved 2-2-2 Whyte Notation locomotives, absolutely no way could he know such love would materialize out of thin air for him mere yards away from where he & Millie slept!

February South Dakota weather is harsh: drab, snowy, miserably cold, overnight 7th & 8th 2023 a fast-moving blizzard left up to 8-inches of snow over central South Dakota, including the Meeson farms, RCP&E tracks & spurs, yards from the south spur buffer stop Jay & Millie’s house was covered in snow though not enough to block window views of it, half-hour before sunrise the 8th he awoke to check on snow depth outside the home bedroom window, glad it wasn’t high as forecasted on the 7th he then sat on the easy chair next to it, whipped out his Android, looked up whether another blizzard was blasting through later that day whilst checking overnight news reporting.

Whilst checking US regional news Jay read reports of fire at Lemoore NAS overnight necessitating a total lockdown of the airbase, odd he’d thought aware of US & international news reporting since November 2022 of the NAS “hosting” The Mefford Field Anachronisms, closure of Mefford Field Airport December 15th due to relentless trespassing by paranormal cultists, publicity seekers, thieves & vandals they stealing much of the US Army Corps Of Engineers fencing sealing off grounds where the AMVETS Phantom & Preston’s Pride had sat for decades. Finished reading at 7:42 a.m. five minutes before sunrise Jay laid the Android down on a nightstand next to the bedroom window when out of nowhere hundreds of tiny dots of ultraviolet light appeared forward of the spur buffer stop accompanied by an irritating high-pitched hissing sound akin to an old fashioned cathode ray television tube, growing in brightness & intensity Jay quickly picked up the Android, commenced video recording them rhythmically churning ala crazed 1970s Studio 54 Disco dancers whist emitting good deal of radiant heat;

“Millie! Get up now! Look at this!”

he’d barked, startled she’d bolted out of bed breathlessly hurrying to the bedroom window next to Jay;

“My God Jay, what is that thing?”

she’d fearfully exclaimed;

“I don’t know; look how fast the ‘dots’ are changing size & shape, marvelous! Look there at the bottom (of the light mass), see those orange-white globe-things ‘crawling up’ (the light mass) ‘sculpting’ it (the mass) from inside out? Damn buggers are alive!

he'd exclaimed with excitement, video recording in awe Jay tried hard to keep the Android camera centered on the rapidly moving light mass Millie meantime whipping out her Android video recording it from other end of the bedroom window zooming in on newly appearing orange-white globe clusters he meantime concentrating on video recording the overall light mass;

“They’re appearing too fast for me to record Jay! Are you still ‘recording big’ what’s going on out there?!”

she'd nervously exclaimed;

“I’m doing my best honey; window panes are getting warm, things throwing out lotta heat, snow ain’t melting, don’t see any heat sheen – why?”

he'd exclaimed with astonishment as more & different-sized ultra violet and now bright blue lights welled up above & below a newly appearing broken horizontal line of small orange-white globes collapsing in on each other couple feet up from the snow. Growing in size forming a long irregular horizontal line the orange-white globes emitted rat-tat-tat firecracker popping noises akin to a Chinese Dragon Street Show, randomly pulsating white lights then appearing at measured locations on it emitting cherry bomb popping noises startling Jay & Millie, perpendicular lines of orange-white globes branching off from them in choreographed manner forming a sketch outline. Something was being created out of thin air Jay & Millie thought, what was it they’d wondered?!

Above the irregular horizontal light line several shorter blue-violet & orange-white vertical ones “peeled” off it forming blue-violet light “tubes” akin to fluorescent lights, a student of steam locomotive technology Jay immediately recognized what they could be;

“Millie! The (light) tubes look like steam engine boiler pipes! Look how regularly they’re positioned! Look at those (just formed) circular ‘mounts’ they’re lying on! If ‘Santa’s elves’ are fabricating a ‘Christmas Loco(motive)’ for us they’re weeks late!”

he’d excitedly exclaimed as three large bright blue-orange-white light disks formed either side of the irregular horizontal light line, radiant heat from them melting snow over the spur rails whilst growing in size emitting sparks & pops touching on them akin to electrical shorts, middle disk expanding near twice size those on either side its interior breaking into 14 segments disks either side 10, outer rims of all thickening forming what appeared to be rear, traction & front engine wheels of an 19th century locomotive, new orange-white globes suddenly appearing forming what appeared to be axels & truck assemblies for them. As these were forming several orange-white light globes on the irregular horizontal light line grew brighter & larger, vertically then horizontally elongating at measured locations outlining what appeared to be an locomotive engine cab & tinder box, latter over the rear wheel truck, oscillating globs of bright blue-orange-white light accompanied by loud buzzing noises akin to angry June Bugs (Phyllophaga beetles) rapidly gelling together forming a now recognizable steam boiler casing meantime.

The mad swirl of bright lights, irritating sounds from the “locomotive” being created 150 feet from Jay & Millie’s bedroom was overwhelming, radiant heat from it warming the bedroom to 75 degrees Fahrenheit despite no snow melting under or around it, braving the discomfort they’d carried on video recording the anomaly now 90 seconds into its initial appearance. Some seconds later new lines of bright blue-orange-white light expanding from inside-out forming what appeared to be steam pistons & chambers, wheel connecting rods well as an intricately rendered cowcatcher, mass of blue-violet light blooming out of top of steam boiler forming a burning wood spark arresting exhaust chimney funnel whilst irregular-shaped light blobs formed other locomotive components, including an oil headlight & enclosure box in front of the chimney in carefully choreographed fashion.

Three minutes into the anomaly the lights changed from bright violets, blues, oranges & white to yellows & reds accompanied by lower heat, less irritating noises, cooler light colorations punctuated by rapid flashes of blue-orange light emanating from the steam boiler firebox accompanied by crackling noises akin to fireworks, green light of several shades & intensities emitting from engine cab, tender, wheel rims & spokes. Gradually fading away five minutes into the anomaly all lights & noises were now gone, sunrise underway Jay & Millie continued video recording beholding in the dull grey morning sky the miraculous sight of a perfectly rendered black & green oil paint & varnished US 2-2-2T Locomotive c.1850, still video recording Jay & Millie couldn’t believe what they’d witnessed nor were looking at;

“This isn’t what I’d thought the thing (locomotive) would be Millie, its ‘beyond Christmas’, damn out of heaven or hell is more like it!”

he'd quietly uttered whilst turning off & lowering his Android Millie video recording meantime;

“I don’t see anything going on, no need to continue recording!”

he'd crisply remarked. Turning off & lowering her Android Millie like Jay was stunned and frightened, aware of the economic, political & societal hell The Mefford Field Anachronisms had visited upon Tulare County, California since November 13, 2022 they absolutely wanted none of it in Hand County, South Dakota never mind on their farms, getting rid of the 2-2-2T locomotive was paramount Jay fortunately knowing somebody who’d help him do so but pronto!

Help In High Places Helps!
« Reply #2 on: October 23, 2022, 08:52:14 AM »
Not wasting a second Jay Meeson contacted via Android his first cousin Montana US Senator Stanley Daniels (“Stan” with relatives & friends, “SD” with others) in Washington DC. Orphaned son of Marvin Meeson’s youngest sister Loretta Daniels who’d died birthing him on May 8, 1968 same day her husband Richard Lee was killed in action during the Vietnam War SD was raised jointly by Marvin & wife Kay Louise, Jay & Millie on the Meeson farms, answering the phone after three rings SD always authoritatively replied even on private phone calls;

“Senator Daniels here! Jay! How’s the weather there?!”

he'd cheerfully asked well knowing how miserable winter weather is in South Dakota;

“Usual grey-crap morning; Stan, I need your help right away!”

Jay replied in a worried tone of voice;

“Jay! Is something wrong? How can I help?!”

SD replied with deep concern in his voice;

“We’re OK Stan, but there’s a 2-2-2T Loco on the south spur that came out of thin air minutes ago just like the ‘Mefford airplanes’ last November! We’ve not gone outside to look at it ‘cause it’s still giving off lots of heat, damn thing could be radioactive! I’ve not called Wally (Hand County Sheriff Wallace Drummond, a Meeson family friend) yet, he’d say I was nuts, can you get ‘Army People’ out here to check out that ‘thing’ today?”

Jay replied with exasperation in his voice. Always willing to help family members SD, a senior member of the US Senate Select Committee On Intelligence, was privy to classified Pentagon briefings concerning OPOM’s creation & THe Mefford Field Anachronisms Site 29-B intelligence gathering particularly that concerning biohazard & radiation exposures, none uncovered to date he correctly assumed Jay & Millie weren’t in immediate danger though alarmed that the 2-2-2T locomotive 150 feet away was radiating enough heat to warm their bedroom to 75 degrees Fahrenheit;

“Jay! Stay inside till the damn ‘thing’ cools down! When it does have Marv, Ev & kids (sons & daughters) set up a ‘shack’ (enclosure) completely around & over it! Hold off on calling Wally till I get back (with you) in an hour! Whatever you do don’t let anybody touch or ‘film’ (photo or video record) it! Am assuming you & Millie already have with your smartphones, don’t upload it (digital recordings of the locomotive) to ‘The Cloud” or turn them on again after this phone call, will call you on the landline in an hour!”

Marvin Meeson Video Records The Anachronism, Senator Daniels Calls Back
« Reply #3 on: October 29, 2022, 05:10:38 AM »
Left, View of B & O Museum's "Pioneer" Locomotive Firebox & Steam Tower - Right, Head On View Showing Oil Headlight
Both Similar To The Meeson Farms Anachronism, Firebox Door Open Whilst Materializing & Being Video Recorded By Marvin & Mildred Meeson Then Closed Mysteriously Afterwards

Heeding Senator Daniels’ commands following the smartphone call Jay & Millie Meeson turned off their Androids & set them down, Jay then calling his sons Marv & Ev via landline getting both on conference call;

“Boys! Remember me telling you both about the airplanes at Mefford Field Airport California materializing out of nowhere last November? Well outside our bedroom is an 1850s vintage locomotive that materialized on the (south) spur less than 15 minutes ago! I’d just got off the Android with Stan, he wants us to put up a ‘shack’ (enclosure) around it till can get back with me in an hour, can you & the (son’s) kids come down and help me put up a ‘China Tent’ (Chinese-made portable steel frame & plastic fabric enclosure) before Stan calls back on the landline?”

Dumfounded his sons immediately rattled off questions why & how it appeared;

“Don’t know why sons, ‘thing’ just materialized out of thin air & lights over several minutes; super elaborate Star Trek movie transporter scene! ‘Mom’ (Millie) believes it was assembled by locomotive engine factory workers made out of light moving at ‘warp speed’, can believe that even looking at it 150 away! I can’t show you the videos we took of the ‘thing’, Stan told me not to turn on the Androids till gets back with me, could you and the kids get here ASAP so we can get the tent around it?

Always willing to help their folks Marv & Ev said they & kids would be there in 20 minutes to set up the tent. Traveling in Ford F-250 4WD all-weather crew cab pick-up trucks entire families of his sons diligently drove one mile south over frozen snow-covered 355th Avenue, arriving at Jay & Millie’s house at 8:25 a.m., parking 175 feet from the 2-2-2T locomotive everybody disbelieving stared at the locomotive, calling Jay via his Android Marv driving the lead pick-up closest to the locomotive asked Jay what they should do next;

“We’re dumfounded here Dad, should I get out first to ‘check it out’ or wait till you & Mom come out?”

pausing some seconds pondering what to do next Jay asked Marv to open his driver’s side window, feel air for heat;

“Marv, the ‘thing’ threw out lots of heat, do you feel any?”

moving his face around feeling for heat Marv replied;

“I feel some heat coming from it Dad, no heat sheen on snow, really weird, ‘dry’ like it just fallen, shall I get out and walk over to it?”

pausing some seconds again pondering what to do next Jay asked him to get out, walk slowly over to it but not take any videos of it with the Android, everybody else with smartphones for that matter;

“Stan told me to keep our (my & Millie’s) Androids off till he calls back, didn’t say why though am sure when the  ‘(US) government people’ show up they’ll confiscate ours ‘for intelligence gathering’, don’t want yours or anybody else’s also! Keep yours off approaching the loco but be ready to turn it on & record if the damn thing ‘comes alive’ all of a sudden!”

Acknowledging Jay’s concerns Marv said he’d keep his off, hand signaled to those inside their F-250 4WDs to keep theirs off as well. Cautiously walking towards the locomotive breaks in the dull grey morning sky then broke open, light rays dramatically shining upon it worthy of a Western motion picture scene opening, steam mists streaking off the boiler tank, billowing clouds of low ground fog forming in the sunlight behind the locomotive. Walking onwards in still air Marv now was in view of his parent’s bedroom window, Jay & Millie looking at him & locomotive with worried concern, stopping 75 feet from it Marv suddenly turned on his Android, called Jay up via landline;

“Dad, I’m going to video record the locomotive, ‘The Government’ will confiscate my Android but trust me on doing this; the ‘thing’ is ‘bonfire hot’ but think can get 25 feet from it, do running commentary while recording it.”

Marv, a decorated US Army Reserve officer & three-tour Iraq War combat veteran twice wounded in hand-to-hand combat with Iraqi insurgents during his second knew well how to deal with dangerous situations, confident with his video recording plan despite potential confiscation of his Android Jay approvingly replied;

“OK son, get as much video you can while keeping back from it far as you can, soon as your done let me know so we can get the ‘China Tent’ up!”

Proceeding with video recording at 8:33 a.m. Marv three feet from right rail 25 feet from the locomotive audibly remarked for recording steam was wisping out of the burning wood spark arresting exhaust chimney funnel suggesting the boiler was hot water-charged though no wood smoke was coming out of it, slowing walking clockwise around it towards the south he’d remarked that the green-painted & gold trimmed oil headlight & enclosure box in front of the chimney was emitting faint orange light akin to the oil storage tank running out, green-painted wrought iron cowcatcher, black-painted boiler & steam piston chambers former ringed with four narrow gold-painted pressure straps glistening in the sunlight;

“This ‘thing’ is in absolutely pristine condition, whatever, whomever ‘brought’ it here knew about antique locomotives; there’s no railroad company markings on it, no builder’s plates, they could be in the (locomotive) cab, on the boiler out of view, maybe casted on the wheels & axles, can tell from this distance.”

Stopping midway to video record a full right side view of the locomotive in front of & far right of Jay & Millie’s bedroom window Marv audibly noted the pristine condition of the brass warning bell & cream-colored fabric pull cord, green-painted & gold trimmed cylindrical steam dome “brass hat” access hatch was open, reason unknown except maybe for operating inspection, continuing leftwards he’d zoomed in on the engine cab;

“The varnished woodworking is magnificent, glass panes clean as whistle set inside black-painted metal frames, moving now to where can get good views of the firebox & engine controls.”

Moving left some yards Marv stopped again to video record the locomotive cab insides;

“Zooming in tight on it now; firebox door is CLOSED Dad, didn't you say it was open while 'filming' (video recording) it?! Cab’s iron or steel plate ‘steam tower’ above the firebox is polished, absolutely pristine, no heat or soot marks anywhere, iron & brass engine controls look brand new!”

Moving left towards the green & gold trimmed-painted iron plate firewood tender box extension of the locomotive cab Marv zoomed in on the likewise green & gold trimmed-painted wooden tool crib box atop the locomotive cab extension flanking the tender box;

“Nothing is in the tender box; there’s an old-fashioned ward padlock locking the tool crib, even has a key in it, how convenient!”

moving on towards the locomotive’s right rear Marv stopped again to zoom in on the cast iron link-and-pin coupler housing centered & anchored on the cab-tender box extension complete with wrought iron oval link & retaining pin typical of 19th Century locomotives;

“Everything back here also is absolutely pristine; staring to ‘video‘ the loco’s left side now.”

Proceeding on with video recording Marv continued audio commentary noting that the locomotive’s left-side tool crib also had a padlock & key, approaching the engine cab he’d noted the polished brass steam safety valve & whistle with cream-colored pull cord atop the steam tower were also in pristine condition;

“I’d love to pull that cord just to hear the whistle tone; thing’s huge for such a small loco, noise makes up for size here!”

Video recording whilst slowly walking north Marv stopped parallel to tip of the cowcatcher, zooming in on the oil headlight & enclosure box in front of the chimney;

“Time is 8:45 a.m., 12 minutes into video recording, headlight has gone out, no oil presumably; walking (forward) another 25 feet before crossing the (railroad) spur (tracks) just in case this ‘thing goes alive’ on me!"

Diligently walking over the tracks whilst video recording, returning where he’d started, at 8:47 a.m. Marv turned off his Android, signaled to Jay he was done, waving in acknowledgement Jay then signaled him to come over to their bedroom window, forthwith doing so standing outside it Jay then cracked open the northside of two weatherized window transoms;

“Marv, Stan just called from Washington DC, told me Army CH-47s out of Camp Grafton (North Dakota) will be here by noon. I told him you were video recording the loco and that everybody else had their Androids off, not happy about you doing that but told him your Android was going to be confiscated like ours after they arrive. Anyway, bring everybody inside to warm-up so we can plan out erecting the ‘China Tent’ before they arrive.”

The Polymath OPOM Commander Naomi Acheampong
« Reply #4 on: November 03, 2022, 08:24:26 PM »
OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Deladem Acheampong born in New York City March 3, 1972, youngest of six children of wealthy Ghanaian immigrants a year later to the day settling in Grand Junction, Colorado, she was the family’s “Gandhi”; reserved, quiet, rational, principled & judicial, nobody “messed” with her especially when came to winning arguments! An avid gymnast at age 13 she’d placed second in a Colorado state high school gymnastics competition, a polymath she placed first in all grade & high school classes, a gifted pianist she’d won numerous contest awards, bound for glory as a concert pianist she instead wanted to enter the US Air Force Academy after learning how to fly at age 16.

Exceptionally qualified academically Naomi’s politically well-connected father Xoese & uncle Abeeku lobbied long-time Colorado Congressman Louis Daniels, father of Montana Senator Stanley Daniels, to sponsor her appointment, accepted in 1990 at age 18 she’d graduated 10th out of 993 cadets in 1995 receiving her second lieutenant officer commission with honors. Assigned to Air Force Logistics Management Agency Contracting Maxwell AFB Alabama she was a stickler for detail saving millions in materials procurement, gaining attention of Pentagon Air Force Logistics Planning “headhunters”, promoted to Lieutenant, assigned to work in The Pentagon late 1996 as a Junior Logistics Planner, she’d demonstrated exceptional organizational abilities in obtaining & deploying personnel & material resources to wherever the Air Force needed them earning her promotion to Captain in less than a year.

At the Air Force Academy Cadet Acheampong’s piercing analytical abilities in intelligence gathering & interpretation studies earned her merits & awards her dissertations later becoming part of the Academy’s curriculum, desiring to work for the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance Agency (AFISRA) fall 1998 she was reassigned there specializing in Top Secret Intelligence Records Management giving her extraordinary access to senior-level Pentagon staff. The Pentagon’s best paper-pushing “librarian”, nicknamed The Naomi Express for her magical talents in effortlessly sifting through mountains of impossibly complex intelligence data for whatever “customer’s” needs, she was unpopular amongst junior Pentagon staff for her tight-lipped demeanor though admired for her professionalism, Army Military Intelligence Corps Commander Major General Mark Balsam whom she’d worked for “on loan” from AFISRA at Fort Belvoir, Virginia for intelligence records organizational & analysis work in 1997, “greasing the skids” for her promotion to Air Force Major as Records Officer the highly secret “black budget” (not Congressionally itemized) Section L of The Pentagon Foreign Technology Assessment Office in 2000.

Holding Top Secret, Special Access Programs, Sensitive Compartmented Information & Restricted Data clearances by order of the President Of United States & succeeding office holders since 2001, Major Acheampong for years was the only US military officer below Colonel who alone could meet with & present to the President the most highly sensitive foreign technology intelligence information collected by the uniformed military services at his summons, when President Donald Trump signed legislation creating the Space Force in 2019 she’d requested transfer to its Records Unit. Seen as a career demotion by Pentagon peers on December 24, 2020 she was assigned Assistant Commander of black budget Section 3 in Pentagon Building Section 1355 it subsequently becoming OPOM on November 13, 2022.

Commanded by the aforementioned OF-5 Senior Pentagon Intelligence Office records custodian of The Mefford Field Anachronisms Marine Lieutenant Colonel Arnold Heberson, OF-4 alternates Army Major George Amundson & Naomi Acheampong (Records Unit Commander), it gained the well-deserved reputation of total impenetrability essential given less than nine months later they’d be collecting & archiving records regarding The Mefford Field Anachronisms. Reassigned to JCS Staff on December 24, 2022 newly promoted O-6 Colonel Heberson’s OPOM successor newly promoted 0-6 Colonel Acheampong skipping two ranks & Assistant Commander newly promoted Lieutenant Colonel Amundson were insanely busy overseeing activities & records associated with The Mefford Field Anachronisms, after Senator Daniel’s discreet 8:33 a.m. February 8, 2023 landline telephone call informing her of the 2-2-2T locomotive materialization she now had to figure out how to seize & transport it to a nearby US military installation but pronto.

Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules Similar To Those Dispatched From Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A February 8, 2023

Long-time friends of the Acheampongs the Daniels farming family frequently conducted agricultural produce brokering with Xoese & Abeeku, highly respected Ghanaian food produce dealers they & families immigrated to the USA in 1965 wanting their children to receive the best schooling possible Colorado Congressman Louis Daniels living near Grand Junction their very first client. Born on May 8, 1963 in Grand Junction Senator Stanley Daniels was close friends of the Acheampong’s in particular Naomi, the most principled of Xoese’s six children when came to ethical conduct she’d appealed to his Western US notions of right & wrong, she to his forthright honesty when came to “doing the right thing” in ambiguous circumstances, receiving his landline telephone call from the Washington DC Philip A. Hart Building’s Secured Communications Center at 8:41 a.m. Colonel Acheampong knew it was a serious “government matter” as he’d never call her for social conversations whilst was on duty, “green lighted” for secured conversation Senator Daniels spoke first;

“Colonel Acheampong its Stan, we’ve got another ‘paranormal object appearance’ this time on Jay Meeson’s farm, a small early 19th railroad engine on the spur (tracks) next to their bedroom! He & Millie are OK, they’ve got good video recordings of the ‘thing’ materializing out of thin air this morning! I’d told them to turn off their Androids and not upload anything on them to ‘the cloud” (remote data storage via the Internet). Jay told me its giving off lots of heat like the Mefford airplanes, don’t think its radioactive, heat’s dissipating, asked them put up a ‘shack’ around it to keep it out of view, knowing Jay he’ll have it up within the hour!”

At a loss for words, highly uncharacteristic of her, Naomi contemplated on what to tell the Meesons till US military personnel arrived;

““Stan, tell the Meesons not to touch the locomotive whatsoever! The ‘pup tent’ or whatever they erect around & over it must be 5 feet away from all sides more the better! Tell them not to take anymore videos of it! Second I get off the phone will request the JCS Chair to initiate ‘2581’ (Pentagon Emergency Action Protocol 2581, streamlined personnel & material resources procurement & management protocols established in wake of the excessively expensive seizures & relocations of the ‘Mefford airplanes’ in event of future paranormal object appearances) after he does will get back to you!”

As OPOM Commander Colonel Acheampong under Presidential Executive Directive had direct access to JCS to request military personnel & material resources necessary in “managing” paranormal objects, including seizing, transporting & securing newly appearing ones onto military installations, forthwith contacting long-time Pentagon friend & professional development mentor JCS Chair Marine Corps General James Mitchell Harrissey III she’d wasted no time telling him about the 2-2-2T locomotive, gain immediate Whitehouse approval authorizing a “paranormal object recovery operation”, initiate Protocol 2581 to seize & relocate it onto a nearby military instillation before day’s end;

“Sir, the Meesons have video recordings of the locomotive’s ‘materialization’, good ones according to Senator Daniels, hard real-time intel how the ‘objects’ are doing so, break we’d needed in beginning to understand why they’d appeared! I know the Meeson family through Senator Daniels, the locomotive weighs under 15 tons, low enough to fly out on a (Lockheed Martin) C-130 J-Model Super Hercules; unsettled skies 13:30 Central (Time) till sunset I’d read, need a meteorologist there well as Army Engineers checking ground conditions for (landing & taking off) the 'Super Herc'.”

Pondering Colonel Acheampong’s C-130J flyout proposal General Harrissey asked her where the locomotive could be flown to on short notice;

“One of the permanent enclosures (hangars) for the Mefford airplanes is up at Mountain Home (AFB), got that info yesterday, Site 29-B forensics (intelligence evaluations) won’t be done on any of them till end of next month (March 2023), with your permission I’ll contact the Site 29-A commander to make preparations for receiving & storing the locomotive soon as you OK 2581.”

Agreeing with the locomotive flyout proposal & storage plan General Harrissey said he’ll personally brief the President within 10 minutes, ask he’d declare an Incident-Specific National Emergency Executive Order (EO) authorizing a paranormal object recovery operation, gain permission to initiate 2581, meantime you’re granted authority under Pentagon Emergency Action Protocol 2581 section b.3 (JCS-granted immediate action authority) to commence & execute activities for securing (seizing) the locomotive till the EO is signed;

“This totally is against Pentagon (department management) policy for unit heads to personally supervise a field operation but I want you to flyout to the Meeson’s homestead, you know the family, get their cooperation (with military personnel), take command for getting ‘that thing’ (locomotive) to Mountain Home by day’s end, meantime get the “radtechs, biotechs” (radiological & biological warfare specialists) & (Army Corps) engineers there to check it out & get ready to load in the Herc, I’ll deal with the (Mountain Home AFB & regional Army Corps Of Engineers) commanders (providing personnel & material in doing so)!”

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4WD Pickup Similar To Those Of The Meeson Clan

Immediately after telling Marv Senator Daniels had called Jay & Millie Meeson quickly “winter dressed”, hurried outside to help their sons & family members put up the “China Tent” around the 2-2-2T locomotive. Stored in southmost of three prefabricated metal “crib sheds” containing farm operations & maintenance materials, tools & equipment on the “south farm” (Jay & Millie’s farm south of US Route 14 east of 355th Avenue) next to four grain silos, in 2012 Jay had purchased two Chinese-made 2,300 pound portable 26-foot wide, 40-foot long, 21-foot 8-inch high inside-angled semi-circular metal “rib” frame & white polyethylene fabric shelters for storing farm equipment during growing & harvesting season, perfect for erecting over & around the locomotive one could be assembled & carted over it within 20 minutes by the present 17 member Meeson family.

The “China Tent”, quickly retrieved & loaded onto a flatbed tow trailer attached to one of the Ford F-250 pickups by Marv’s & Ev’s high school & college age sons & daughters driven by Marv’s wife Thelma driving an F-250 with daughters Irene & Judy on board, led way to the 2-2-2T over an asphalt snow-covered service road paralleling east side of the railroad spur connecting Jay’s & Millie’s house 1,300 feet south of the crib shed followed by a train F-250s carrying rest of the Meeson clan to a good sized west facing snow-covered asphalt parking lot in front of & full length of their house where they’d be parked. Morning clouds clearing with sunshine peaking though there was no wind, good conditions for erecting the tent over the locomotive, arriving & parking 60 feet from it the clan set to laying metal frame parts out over the spur tracks. Assembling them 10 feet forward of the 2-2-2T’s cowcatcher with power tools taken from the crib shack, plastic rope for pulling the white polyethylene fabric cover over the frame laid inside u-channel rib edges & secured, the work completed in 19 minutes. Jay & Millie meantime spotting locations where the tent frame’s five rib “foots” (bases, two per rib) would sit, measuring out linear paths either side & parallel to the spur tracks other Meeson clan members then removed snow for low-rise pneumatic caster wheeled dollies to wheel the tent frame over the locomotive the work done in 20 minutes.

Lined up along the east side of the tent frame Marv’s & Ev's family members readied to gang-lift the five frame ribs on dollies. Stationed either end of the 40-foot long tent frame Jay & Millie arms raised signaled all to get ready for lifting the ribs, everyone at their lifting stations they’d lowered them, ribs simultaneously lifted up two feet whilst other family members wheeled dollies under the rib foots, hang signaling to Jay & Millie all were dead centered Jay & Millie then signaling all to simultaneously lower the ribs on the dollies. Rib feet now on dollies some family members tied them down rest hustling to west side of tent frame preparing to lift & mount the other rib feet on dollies, repeating the procedure, rib feet tied down on dollies, the tent frame was ready to be wheeled over the 2-2-2-T.

As initially planned two F-250 pickups would tow the tent frame over the locomotive either side of it, easier to manhandle than expected the Meeson clan now would push it over, family members now positioned at each of the ten rib foots & dollies Jay & Millie stationed forward either side guided them onwards along the 60-foot snow cleared-off paths. Taking 15 minutes in doing so, uneven water-puddled ground slowing forward momentum, at 10:03 a.m. the tent frame was in place over the 2-2-2T, unsure whether to take it off or leave on the dollies Jay asked his sons what they’d thought;

“The military might want us to move it off of so can lift the loco off the tracks with cranes, why don’t we just tie down the dollies till they tell us what to do?”

said Ev whilst Marv nodded head in agreement, OK with the suggestion Jay then asked family members to securely tie down the dollies;

“Be sure the tie-downs are strong enough to withstand the blizzard that’s coming in tonight, got no idea whether the military can get the ‘thing’ out of here by sunset!"

Just as Jay spoke their youngest grandchild 9-year old Mildred Jean, Ev's daughter, raced out of Jay & Millie’s house;

“Grandpa! Senator Daniels is on the (landline) phone, wants to speak to you right now!”

Hustling breathlessly into the house Jay answered the phone;

“Jay! Have you got the ‘shack’ up yet?!”

replying forthwith Jay told him the tent frame was up and were ready to pull the polyethylene fabric over it;

“We’ll have it & (fabric) tent doors by 11:00 a.m. our time Stan, anything else we need to do?”

thinking out loud Stan replied;

“Yes, Marv’s Army reserve, knows how to do this, have him mark out landing zones for three CH-47s close as possible to the locomotive. Everybody there is going to be examined for radiological & biological contamination so expected to be detained for some hours at your house, do you have enough room for all there?”

replying again forthwith Jay said they had auto garage & house room space for everybody though if possible for those finishing their examinations be allowed to return home soon as possible;

““They need to tend livestock, another blizzard coming in tonight, ask whosever’s in charge (of military operation on the Meeson farms) to tell his medical people coming here to be quick as possible, really appreciate that!”

Telling Jay he’d “pass that on” Stan then said he’ll contact him later on whatever “government” help the Meesons needed accommodating military personnel, material & equipment on the farm;

“The Government is ‘paying for everything’ Jay, will provide you inventory of all Meeson family real & personal property defaced & damaged while there. Please carefully read it & be sure to make corrections if necessary, you WILL be fully compensated! I must go now, Senate debates & votes in a few minutes; say hello to everybody there. Dad (retired Colorado Congressman Louis Daniels) will call you tonight also, ask how all are doing, any ‘military people’ hassles anybody there, including ‘rubbing them the wrong way’, let him and I know, he’s still got House contacts to ‘come down’ on Whitehouse staff if anybody there is crossed…talk to you tonight, bye for now!”

"China Tent" Now Over The 2-2-2T Locomotive
« Reply #7 on: November 08, 2022, 06:15:21 AM »
ShelterVision 40-Foot Long Portable Shelter Similar To The Meeson's "China Tent"

Ending the telephone call with good-byes to Senator Daniels Jay forthwith returned to “China Tent” erection work, asked by his sons Marv & Ev what Stan said he’d replied with a sigh;

““We’re going to be ‘quarantined’; military medical people will examine us here (i.e. at Jay & Millie’s house). I’d asked Stan they’d be quick as possible so we can get back to livestock tending before sunset. Stan said she wants us to set up three 120-foot square CH-47 landing zones close as possible to the loco, can you do that after we get the ‘tarp’ (polyethylene fabric) over the (tent) frame Marv?”

Nodding head yes Marv replied he’d have to “cheat” retrieving suitable marking materials from his farm Ev afterwards saying he had rolls of black sheet plastic to strip out zones, empty yellow-painted fuel drums as corner markets;

“If the docs (military doctors) ask we’d (Ev been off (your) farm I'll tell them we brought the stuff anticipating the Army would be landing 'helos' (helicopters) here, bet everybody (here) they ain’t gonna find radioactive anything on us never mind biological!”

Impishly smiling Jay hand signaled them to resume erecting work on the “China Tent”;

“Soon as its up I’ll help with setting up the 'helo markers' after Millie and I warm-up a little, damn cold right now!”

Concerned his folks had been out in the cold too long Marv & Ev asked them to go back in the house & warm-up;

“We all can handle the ‘tarp’ & 'markers' Dad, you & Mom need to warm-up now! Soon as its done we’ll come inside to warm-up also after checking on whether the livestock have enough food, water & heat to get them though till tonight, Mae & Jan (Ev’s daughters) will check on yours meantime.”

Ev entreated, nodding heads in agreement Jay & Millie forthwith retreated to inside their house, Marv, Ev, wives, sons & daughters - 15 in all - meantime proceeding work laying the polyethylene fabric cover over the tent frame.

Lifting up & walking the 40-foot long cover wrapped around a 4-inch PVC pipe in a conga line to left side of the tent frame, laying it down parallel to it, five then broke off to hook u-channel ropes on it eight others, Marv’s & Evan’s strongest sons & daughters, hurrying to other side for pulling it over the tent ribs. With Ev supervising the “pull” on the right, Marv supervising cover unfurling the left, niece “Millie” Jean & older brother Clark manning the No.1 Tent Rib facing north, all made sure it freely unwrapped from the PVC pipe spindle.

At the PVC pipe spindle ends adjacent to No.1 & 5 Tent Ribs three foot tall fabricated wood mounts were “plugged” in near Nos.2, 3. 4 foot high u-shaped wood rests for the cover to lay on, as the u-channel ropes pulled it upwards the cover unfurled ala toilet paper off its core, family members lifting it periodically to prevent binding. Flexible & lightweight the cover easily unfurled when dry, taking minutes longer because of morning damp air several times it snagged whilst pulling it over the tent’s semi-circular top & towards the ground.

By 10:35 p.m. the cover was completely over the tent frame, “stretched” (i.e. pulled taught from both sides) & nylon cable-tied on the frame rib foots fabric access doors then were “hung” over the tent ends, work completed at 10:55 a.m. attention now turned on marking out three landing zones for the Army CH-47 Chinooks.

2-2-2T Loco OPOM Recovery Plan C.3f, Colonel Acheampong Flies To Ellsworth AFB
« Reply #8 on: November 11, 2022, 05:47:16 AM »

Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon Similar To That Flown By OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong To Ellsworth AFB South Dakota February 8, 2023

Importantly when Colonel Acheampong convinced & got permission from JCS Chair General Harrissey III to flyout the 2-2-2T locomotive to Mountain View AFB she now could “get balls rolling” locating & transporting personnel, material & equipment doing so. In charge of post-November 14, 2022 Pentagon “management” of The Mefford Field Anachronisms she’d appreciated the herculean single-minded efforts of Lemoore NAS Commander Captain Masterson on-the-fly seizing, isolating, biohazard examining, readying at Mefford Field Airport for flying to & securing at Site 29-B The Mefford Field Anachronisms within 24 hours worthy of an ad hoc high failure risk WWII military operation ala Operating Biting (Bruneval Raid), taking to heart lessons learned “managing” them Acheampong immediately after conferring with Harrissey activated OPOM Object Recovery Plan C.3f transporting single paranormal terrestrial objects weighing under 20 tons by fixed-wing aircraft ala air refueled C-130Js. Prepared for flight & staffed by a wide assortment of personnel at Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A all were laboring at "triple warp speed" loading three aircraft airlifting the following:
  • Biological warfare & medical specialists materials, equipment & tools, including an Air Force Psychiatrist & Clinical Psychologist for assessing the Meeson's reactions to the paranormal appearance of the 2-2-2T locomotive;
  • Paranormal Object site operations personnel including communications & Air Police, support materials & equipment;
  • 20-ton minimum lifting capacity Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC), operating personnel, support materials & equipment.
A fourth C-130J airlifting the 2-2-2T locomotive included loading personnel, materials & equipment, several old 25 lb/yd ASCE (American Society Of Civil Engineers) railroad rails “loaned” from the Army Corps Of Engineers for rolling it onboard, all aircraft loaded & ready for flight by 10:45 a.m. Mountain Time they awaited the GO signal from OPOM Pentagon for taking off to Meeson farms.

Meanwhile to this preparatory activity, Colonel Acheampong quickly made arrangements for flying out to the farms, donning a flight suit & helmet whilst still in The Pentagon at 11:47 a.m. Eastern time she then was helicoptered to Joint Base Andrews where there a Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon piloted by Air Force Captain Marie Alvarez-Masto awaited for flying her to Ellsworth AFB Western South Dakota. Arriving 5 minutes later she hurredly boarded & strapped in the aircraft commander’s seat behind Captain Alvarez-Masto whilst engines were warming up, aircraft canopy down the groundcrew signalman “waved the bird” to proceed north on the Runway 19 Right taxiway, signaled by the Airport Controller for immediate take-off at 11:55 they’d lifted off “hot rodding” full afterburner heading northwest to Ellsworth.

Rapidly climbing to 35,000 feet cruse altitude throttling up 575 knots, Captain Alvarez-Masto piloting the T-38C hung back going supersonic till leaving the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, zipping over Kernstown, Virginia she’d asked Colonel Acheampong whether she’d wanted to pilot the airplane, a qualified pilot of single & multiengine propeller & jet aircraft with 100-plus hours flying T-38s she “took the stick” forthwith climbing to 40,000 “punching Mach 1” at 660.1 mph both now settling in for the two hour 1,398 mile flight to Ellsworth assuming good flying weather & no diversions.

Army JCS Picks "Captain Kid” To Command Advance Teams At Meeson Farms
« Reply #9 on: November 13, 2022, 01:40:56 PM »
Meantime to Colonel Acheampong’s T-38C supersonic transit to Ellsworth AFB ongoing preparations at Mountain Home AFB for flying out C-130Js to the Meeson farms to recover & transport the 2-2-2T locomotive back to Site 29-A at Camp Grafton were well underway. A major North Dakota Army National Guard Training Center, personnel, materials & equipment logistics & medical officers there frenetically cobbled together advance teams for securing the object (locomotive), conducting cursory biohazard medical examinations on Meeson family members till arrival of Air Force Medical Service personnel from Mountain Home, locating, inspecting & preparing farmland areas for the "Super Hercs" to land & take station close as possible to the 2-2-2T. Assigned command responsibility was Army Corps Of Engineers Captain Roland “Kid” Caldwell Mattock nicknamed “Captain Kid” as is youngest in his family, scheduled at 10:00 a.m. Central Time to teach bridge construction technologies & operational deployments under combat conditions but instead personally pulled out of the classroom by Camp Commandant Colonel Wesley “Butch” Nathan seconds before commencing the lecture;

“Kid, you’ve got a ‘hot assignment’ personally from Army JCS (Member) General (Benjamin Duchman “Duke”) Loughlin. Duke wants to assemble & command an advance team of engineers & medics (Army Medical Corpsmen) to a South Dakota farm owned by Jason & Mildred Meeson. The operation’s secret, only details I’m authorized to divulge is you’re to have medics immediately screen the Meeson’s & family members for radiological & biological contamination with whatever testing equipment they’ve got on hand, survey & set up landing zones for four C-130Js on Meeson farms no later than 14:00 (2:00 p.m. Central) their time today!”

Aware Marv Meeson & Kid Mattock served together during Operation Iraqi Freedom March-May 2003 Butch Nathan knew Marv would be cooperative with Army personnel. Marv an experienced infantry Captain mentored Kid, Second Lieutenant fresh out of West Point he'd “cut teeth” under his command conducting dangerous close-order house-to-house searches for Iraqi insurgents, later transferring to the Corps Of Engineers Kid employed hard earned combat experiences whilst in Afghanistan warding off Taliban attacks whilst building temporary vehicular bridges in very rugged terrain. Appreciating the gravity of being personally selected for the assignment by Army JCS General Loughlin Captain Mattock was unaware Colonel Acheampong had made it for him he likewise not knowing she was a long-time family friend of the Meeson’s, unaware of OPOM, its Top Secret existence, the 2-2-2T locomotive on Jay & Millie’s farm, Kid only could trust his selection was necessary for US National Security but he’d wanted to know a bit more about why;

“Sir, I’ll ‘do the job’ but may I ask if its ‘national security’ related?”

eyeing him earnestly Butch replied;

“Kid it is, that’s all I can say. You’ll be receiving written orders from The Pentagon any minute now what the assignment is, read them carefully & act quickly, you must be ‘set up’ by 14:00 for the 'Super Hercs'!"

Captain Mattock Receives Pentagon Orders, ENDER Detail On Way To Meeson Farms
« Reply #10 on: November 14, 2022, 06:46:11 AM »
US Army Boeing CH-47F Chinook Similar To Those Dispatched From Camp Grafton North Dakota February 8, 2023

Just as Colonel Nathan spoke his Senior Adjutant Major Crnčević smartphone messaged him for he & Captain Mattock to immediately come to the camp’s Communications Center, quickly returning to the classroom full of Army Engineers readied for the day’s lecture on bridge construction technologies & operational deployments under combat conditions Mattock perfunctorily dismissed them without saying why he & Colonel Nathan then hurrying over to it. Inside the Communications Command Office was a Secured Communications Channel computer, dismissing the Duty Officer Nathan locked the office door, turned it on, entered passwords, minute later online with The Pentagon’s Army Communications Office. Presented a series of security protocol checks to pass Nathan then was told via computer monitor text to put Mattock on and for him to leave;

“It's yours Kid, signal me when you’re done, got other work to do!”

Departing forthwith Colonel Nathan asked Captain Mattock to lock the office door behind him Nathan then assigning the Communications Office Duty Military Police (MP) Corpsman to guard the room from outside. Presented a series of protocol checks specific to him Mattock then was given his “written” Pentagon orders:

  • (OPOM assigned) Code Name of the Army Camp Grafton detail mission to Meeson farms is ENDER (play on 2-2-2T locomotive located at end of the Meeson farm’s south railroad spur).
  • Transport all personnel, materials, equipment helicoptered in from Camp Grafton by (Boeing) CH-47 F-model Chinooks to prepared helicopter landing zones on Meeson farms.
  • All telecommunications shall be on Army Secure Channel Frequency (as stated in order). The ENDER detail Call Sign is BRISKET, Mountain Home AFB (i.e. direct from Site 29-A) Call Sign is BYRON ALPHA, a list of telecommunications codes appended to this Order (not shown here but extensive each starting with ENDER) shall be employed for the duration of the ENDER detail mission.
  • Upon arriving at Meeson farms the telecommunications code ENDER FORTUNE is to be transmitted to Mountain Home AFB their acknowledgement to it is WELFOR.
  • Secure OBJECT (OPOM’s generic designation of paranormally appearing things) by placing armed MPs around OBJECT (i.e. the “China Tent”) with orders to ‘block’ (i.e. shoot) anyone other than yourself attempting to examine it until further notice personally by you alone.
  • Prepare landing zones on Meeson farms for Air Force C-130Js to land & station four aircraft adjacent to OBJECT by no later than 14:00 (2:00 p.m. Central) local time.
  • Quarantine & confine to their homes all Meeson family members who’d been in proximity to OBJECT, subject them to cursory radiological & biological contamination inspections pending further examination by Air Force Medical Service personnel.
  • All Meeson family members to be instructed personally by you not to discuss anything associated with OBJECT to you or anyone else in the ENDER detail until Air Force Intelligence personnel arrive from Mountain Home AFB.
  • Air Force Major June Harriet Morant (Site 29-A Assistant Commander this not divulged to Captain Mattock) commanding personnel from Mountain Home personally will take command of (military) operations on Meeson farms from you, MPs guarding OBJECT to be relieved by you, Major Morant replacing them with Air Police, you & detail remaining at Meeson farms till relieved by her meantime rendering whatever personnel, materials & equipment assistance she needs for accomplishing her mission.

Finished reading the orders Captain Mattock “papered” them off a “dumb” (i.e. having no electronic data storage capacity) office printer employed for classified communications, deposited them in a sealable file folder, forthwith logging off secured communications & shutting off the computer he then signaled (telephoned) Colonel Nathan that he was departing the Communications Center. Unlocking & the office door & exiting he forthwith relived the MP guarding it, hurried on foot to the camp’s nearby Air Transportation Center, commenced supervising activities associated with ENDER. The farms located 245 miles near due south of Camp Grafton took CH-47Fs 62 minutes to “helo” (helicopter) there, laboring “double warp speed” by 11:00 a.m. Central Time two Chinooks were fully loaded with materials, equipment & tools, ENDER detail personnel piling on board them immediately afterwards at 11:10 a.m. they’d hurriedly took off. Quickly climbing to altitude & cruising speed all aboard settled in heloing through freezing cold broken cloudy skies for the 245 mile 62 minute trip the Meeson farms the family there furiously laboring setting up landing zones for the Chinooks in just as cold ground conditions meantime.

At 11:13 a.m. Central Time Captain Mattock over secured channel communications link signaled Mountain AFB Site 29-A ENDOR RUN off the telecommunications codes list appended to the above mentioned Order No.3 that the CH-47F aerial convoy was now enroute to the Meeson farms, loading-up four Air Force C-130J Super Hercules transports at Site 29-B continuing meantime for flyout at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time to the Meeson farms. At 11:30 a.m. Central Time Senator Stanley Daniels called Jay Meeson asking whether the helicopter landing zones had been marked out;

“The ground either side nearest the 2-2-2T (locomotive) ain't good for them to land on Stan, Marv says it’s too soggy, they’ll have to land 300 north of it & 100 feet east of the rail spur, he’s working out the layout now, is that OK?”

Pausing on replying Stan got back on the secured landline telephone link to General Laughlin;

“Duke, Jay Meeson says the helo landing zones have to be 300 feet north & 100 feet east of “the object” (locomotive), grounds too soggy getting any closer, is that OK with the Army Engineers (being flown in from Camp Grafton)?”

not wasting a split second General Laughlin crisply replied;

“That’s fine Stan, just ask the Meesons to have the (landing) zones ready by noon their time. Once the ‘team’ (ENDER detail) arrives they’ll be running military operations there (on the Meeson farms). Please ask them to follow whatever orders are passed on to them and that US Government officials will immediately follow up on compensating them for whatever costs they’d occurred in ‘hosting’ the military operation on their properties. Please tell them many thanks on behalf of the US Military for their cooperation as well. That’s it for now Stan, everything’s in the ‘team’s’ hands soon as they arrive; thanks for being The Pentagon’s ‘go between’ with the Meesons, bye for now old friend!”

Forthwith relaying Laughlin’s message in its entirety to Jay Stan insured him that the US Military will make good on its compensation pledge and that he’d personally make sure it would be timely;

“Your family has rendered an invaluable service to the country in video recording the locomotive’s materialization well as enclosing it (with the ‘China Tent’) till military personnel arrive. I can’t imagine the stress everybody there is going through dealing with such traumatic events associated with it. I’ll tell you now and you absolutely must keep this to yourself but I understand Colonel Naomi Acheampong is on her way there, please for God's sake don’t let on you knew she was coming, I’ll be in lotta ‘hot water’ if you follow me!”

Stunned & dumfounded hearing she was coming Jay hid that whilst graciously thanking Stan for the complements & “heads-up” of her pending arrival he then offering to host the Daniels family at a Meeson family gathering later in the year, immediately accepting it Stan offered to pay all costs associated for putting it on;

“Your Dad was terrific rendering hospitality, the Daniels are long overdue rendering back; must go now for Senate business, talk to you later, bye for now!”

Zipping supersonic at 40,000 feet the T-38C Talon piloted by Air Force Captain Marie Alvarez-Masto her crewmate OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong “on the stick” at 11:30 a.m. Central Time she’d “passed it back” to Alvarez-Masto Acheampong forthwith “punching in” to OPOM Pentagon on a wire-connected smartphone via secured communications link to await signals concerning the in-transit Army ENDER detail to Meeson farms. Reading other OPOM signals meantime a disturbing one popped-up from Lemoore Naval Air Station Site 29-A that the Heinkel 177 A-5’s central fuselage came dangerously close to collapsing if had remained airborne another 15 minutes suspended underneath the Erickson S-64S Super Skycrane night of November 13, 2022 from inflight aerodynamic wind stresses of Pilot Leslie Sheldon heloing at 65 knots, ten more than safely calculated; “Idiot should had known better overstressing that ‘broken bird’ (airplane)!” she’d silently mused.

Whilst reading another signal at 12:17 p.m. Central Time OPOM signaled that the ENDER detail had taken off from Camp Grafton at 12:10 p.m. she forthwith texting OPOM Assistant Commander Lieutenant Colonel Amundson for him signal the Site 29-A Assistant Commander Major June Harriet Morant the code ENDER AIR GOOD signifying the ENDER detail was on schedule then the GO code HARVEY, the name of the Site 29-B mission of C-130Js to Meeson farms, for securing & relocating the 2-2-2T Locomotive & transporting it back to Site-29. Expeditiously departing Mountain Home AFB Site-29 the line of four "Super Hercs" trained to Runway 30 southeast, taking off in 20 second intervals they’d assembled in formation over Bennett Mountain northeast of Mountain Home, settling in cruising altitude & speed for the 833 mile 2-1/2 hour flight to the Meeson farms HARVEY Formation Commander Air Force Major Winslow Hartley now awaited signals from the ENDER detail where to land his “flock” of transports on the farms.

Chugging at 160 knots (184 mph) though freezing cold cloudy skies heading near due south towards the Meeson farms over Ipswich, South Dakota the Army CH-47F Chinooks of the ENDER detail heloing at 7,000 feet encountered strong westerly winds, lowering altitude & speed to 5,000 feet & 120 knots (138 mph) visibility was rapidly decreasing. At 11:57 a.m. Central Time the lead chopper commanded by Army Captain Kenneth Carpenter radio signaled his follower Army Lieutenant Guy Brooks to head southeast towards Watertown his cockpit Doppler Radar display showing clearing skies south to Tulare on US Highway 281 where there they could swing southwest to Miller then due west over US 14 to Meeson farms. Communicating the course correction via secure telecommunications link to Captain Mattock he’d quickly calculated they’d arrive by 12:30 p.m. assuming no weather delays, concerned the Meesons also might be encountering unfavorable weather at 11:59 a.m. he’d landline telephoned Jay Meeson asking how weather conditions were there;

“Jay! this is Captain Roland Caldwell Mattock, do you remember me?

cheerfully replying Jay laughed;

“Of course I do Kid, Marv’s here with me now, wanna speak to him?

Handing the phone to Marv Captain Mattock spoke first;

Marv! I’d not talk to you since 2017! We can talk pleasantries later! Are the helicopter landing zones ready?! Two Chinooks are due in 30 minutes (from now), how’s the weather there?

Looking outside from Jay & Millie’s bedroom at the “China Tent” housing the 2-2-2T locomotive he’d calmly replied;

“Cloudy but stable Kid. The landing zones are ready, do you want me to ‘baton’ (guide) them in?

Stationed in Camp Grafton’s “Weather Shack” (Weather Center) intently watching the Chinook's flight progress on Doppler Radar since before their 12:10 p.m. departures Captain Mattock replied with concern;

“Marv! There’s a ‘bubble’ (wind disturbance front) quarter-mile west of you & closing fast, I see whole bunch more behind it on Doppler, stay on the phone till it passes over then tell me how strong it is!”

Lifting the phone receiver Marv listened for wind gusts, slapping the bedroom window panes half minute later he’d reported back;

“Kid, it ‘hit’ at around 25 mph, no snow blew up, ‘no biggie’ (no problem) for landing helos in my opinion.”

Relieved at Marv’s report Captain Mattock replied thankfully;

“That’s good news Marv, ‘bubbles’ behind it are half as strong, don’t see anything for miles behind them. OK you ‘baton in’ the helos Marv, nobody I knew better doing that than you in Iraq, will tell the ‘leader’ (Captain Carpenter) that before arriving. Once they’re landed please follow his orders, we don’t know yet if you’d been subjected to harmful radiation or bioagents from whatever’s in that tent on the rail spur.”

Acknowledging his request & concerns Marv thanked him for calling they simultaneously hanging up.

Returning outside to the helicopter landing zones Marv's & Ev's wives Kay Louise & Julie Deanne, stood ready to receive the ENDER detail, hearing the Chinook’s distinctive double-chop rotor sounds from the east at 12:35 p.m. they’d spotted them popping out of low clouds. They now moving in quickly Marv both hands armed with three-foot long scrap sections of black 2-inch PVC pipe stood dead center inside “Landing Zone 1” closest to the “China Tent”, raising them high either side he’d waved to Captain Carpenter his presence, following his signal commands Carpenter lowered altitude & speed whilst Marv moved out of the landing zone, satisfied the Chinook was centered within the zone he’d signaled ‘land’ Carpenter then descending making a perfect four-point wheel landing. Hoofing quickly to “Landing Zone 2” adjacent & north of it Marv repeated the procedure for Lieutenant Guy Brooks he too making a perfect landing at precisely 12:40 p.m. Helicopters landed Marv, Ev & wives - the entire Meeson clan - now awaited ‘orders’ from the ENDER detail’s commander he now having less than hour twenty minutes to survey & set up a landing field for the HARVEY C-130Js on Jay & Millie Meeson’s farmland.

Site 29-A. ENDER & HARVEY Status Cross-Confirmed, Marv Greets Major McCarthy
« Reply #13 on: November 16, 2022, 07:30:47 AM »
Less than ten seconds after landing the ENDER detail’s commander per above mentioned Pentagon orders issued to Army Captain Roland Mattock at Camp Grafton though secured communications link signaled Mountain Home AFB Site 29-B;


Listening five seconds for the confirmation code words from Site 29-B he’d repeated the signal, waiting ten seconds more still no reply, split second before repeating it again Site 29-B finally replied;


acknowledging ENDER detail’s arrival. Monitoring code transmissions also though secured communications link the HARVEY C-130J Formation Commander Major Hartley seconds later received Site 29-B’s confirmation of it;


all confirmations made the ENDER detail could now commence military operations on Meeson farmland, HARVEY's "Super Hercs" continue flying to there & landing at 2:00 p.m. Central Time provided weather conditions held & ENDER detail personnel had farm areas prepared for them to do so.

Briskly walking over to & positioned between the CH-47F’s aft Cargo Ramps Marv, Ev & wives wearing cold weather winter clothing stood in line to receive the ENDER detail’s commander in the lead helicopter. Rotors still turning blowing air from them was freezing cold, not good considering the detail well as the much larger contingent of HARVEY C-130J personnel would be working rest of the day and very likely into the night in it well as high probability of a major snow blizzard rolling in by 8:00 p.m. Central over the Meeson farms. Not wasting a second the ENDER detail’s commander donning a hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuit over winter uniform clothing & gloves rushed out of his Command Helicopter, clipping straight to Marv he’d stood at attention before him & saluted;

“Major Meeson, I’m Major Kevin McCarthy, glad seeing you again!”

Forthwith saluting back Marv, a retired Army National Guard Reserve officer, appreciated Major McCarthy’s acknowledgement of his former rank;

“Thank you Major, glad as well! I knew you in Iraq as a lieutenant Army engineer fresh out of West Point, small world it seems that ‘thing’ in the tent over there bringing together several of my old comrades today!”

Getting straight to the point Major McCarthy requested & expected full cooperation of the entire Meeson clan on farm property since midnight February 8th whilst military operations were being conducted on it, turning left hand signaling four Army MP sergeants donning hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuits armed with shouldered M4 carbines to come over McCarthy explained their duty assignment to Marv;

“Their presence here is specific to Pentagon orders received by Captain Mattock this morning to arm-guard whatever’s in that tent, nothing more, nothing less. You’re still on the “Officer Reserve Emergency Roster” holding Top Secret security clearances so I can tell you they (i.e. the orders) came direct from JCS General Loughlin and my presence here instead of an (Army) engineer of equal rank to Kid (Mattock) is because he’d personally ordered me to lead this detail knowing I’d worked for you before and could gain your family’s complete cooperation; I just so happened to ‘be in the vicinity’ of (Camp) Grafton when he did so this morning by the way!”

Smiling with "laughing eyes" Marv replied with certitude;

“You’ve got it Major! Only requests I have is when the ‘main body’ (i.e. HARVEY personnel) arrives please ask the commander if he/she could expedite medical examinations & intelligence debriefings of our family members so they can go home soon as possible for tending to their farms other is for a medic to checkout Mom & Dad, they’re both 91 and very stressed over what’s been going on here today!”

Replying with equal certitude they’d be granted by “her” Major McCarthy added this;

“Major June Harriet Morant is the best damn Air Force “dirty hands” field engineer I’d ever work with, can’t count how many ‘miracles’ she’d performed in Iraq & Afghanistan. I’ll guarantee my “oak leaves” (Major rank insignia) she’ll do whatever’s necessary accommodating your requests!”

Bowled over what he’d just said Marv glared at him;

“You mean ‘June Gloom Of Kandahar‘ (Afghanistan) who’d pulled of the ‘Panjab Extraction’ (i.e. her single-handedly setting up helicopter landing zones whilst under fire from Taliban insurgents) back in 2006?! If she’d not done that to fly in ‘Jolly Green J’s’ (Sikorski MH-53J Pave Low III Special Operations helicopters) I’d lost all my ‘special ops’ folks that night! What a thrill to see her today! For years I’d wanted to thank her for saving my buddies – wow!”

Appreciative of Marv’s exuberant praise of Major Morant McCarthy said her orders also included that all Meeson family members received "polite though thorough" medical examinations for radiological & biological contamination and they’d be conducted in their homes, not in cold, drafty field tents, very happy hearing that Marv thanked McCarthy then asked what he & family members should do now;

“Stay in your folk’s house, my medics will follow up momentarily, meantime I need you Marv to help out my engineers surveying farmland for a landing field, can you do that?”

Nodding head yes Marv then asked Ev, his wife Julie Deanne & oldest son Dale to help out they knowing Jay & Millie’s farmland terrain better than them, glad hearing that Major McCarthy then asked Mark whether the Meesons had “cats” (caterpillar-tracked general-purpose vehicles) for towing equipment over snow-covered farm fields;

“Camp Grafton’s (vehicular motor) pool didn’t have any for my engineers, was ordered to commandeer yours not knowing at all if you'd had any but didn't want to be brash about that, anything you’ve got that’ll “troll” (i.e. tow equipment) over your farmland is welcome!"

Forthwith replying Marv said they had number of “big wheeled” John Deere farm tractors well as trailers suitable for over-snow towing stored next to the grain silos up road of the “China Tent”, happy to hear that McCarthy then asked if his engineers could drive the Meeson’s Ford F-250s to them;

“No problem, need to get the (vehicle) keys if you’d ‘dismiss me!”

saluting with a smile McCarthy then ‘dismissed’ Marv;

“Let's get to work, time’s short, ‘June Gloom’s’ gonna kick my ass with her ‘fat heels’ if I don’t get the landing field ready in time for her ‘Super Hercs’ (C-130J transports)!”

Meeson Family Radiation & Biohazard Medical Examinations Commence
« Reply #14 on: November 18, 2022, 11:01:32 AM »
Obsolete US Military HDER-G01 Dual-Probe Geiger Counter Radiation Detection Kit Concept Similar To State-Of-Art Technology Ones Used By Air Force Radtechs

Whilst Marvin Meeson & Major Kevin McCarthy were conversing two MPs hoofed it to the “China Tent”, assuming post positions 5 feet in front of its north & south fabric doors nobody other than McCarthy & their reliefs were allowed anywhere near them - for now. Exiting in two columns from Major McCarthy’s Command Helicopter piloted by Captain Kenneth Carpenter on Landing Zone 1 twenty-two Army engineers donning hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuits as were all others in the ENDER detail lined up in two rows to receive commands from him.

Waiting on Marv & wife Kay Louise to retrieve Dale Meeson & key sets for the family’s six Ford F-250s several engineers glanced right watching the MPs take up stations next to the “China Tent”, told by McCarthy not to ask what was in the tent they’d nevertheless speculated amongst themselves what it could be. Before departing Camp Grafton a couple had heard rumors it was an “extraterrestrial artifact” another, a corporal fresh from the Sacramento District who’d heard rumors about The Mefford Field Anachronisms, rightly guessed it had something to do with them, until HARVEY personnel arrived only the Meesons knew and they weren’t talking – for now!

Signaling Major McCarthy from where the F-250s were parked next to Jay & Millie’s house Marv again signaled for the engineers to come over, get the keys, drive them to the helicopters & Major McCarthy he forthwith ordering them to hustle over & drive them to the helicopters, load in materials, equipment & tools for setting up the C-130J landing field, drive off, get on with work at hand but pronto! At exactly the same time ten Army Medical Corpsmen lead by 26-year old First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie (“Mae”) Louise Whitman out on her very first "active situation" field assignment only having arrived at Camp Grafton nine hours earlier hustled out of Lieutenant Guy Brook’s chopper on Landing Zone 2 with their materials, equipment & tools he then signaling her & team to head direct to Jay & Millie’s house,  meet up with Marv for medically inspecting the Meesons.

The ENDER detail was ordered to remain on the Meeson farms till relieved by HARVEY Commander Major June Morant. Employing his CH-47F Command Helicopter as the detail’s Command Center Major McCarthy retreated onboard & pulled up the Cargo Ramp to warm up the fuselage with him two MPs relieving those guarding the “China Tent”, pilot Captain Carpenter acting as McCarthy’s Assistant Commander of the Command Center his co-pilot & loadmaster “chefs” of the Meals Ready To Eat (MRE) station well as portable latrine janitors. Similar to McCarthy’s Command Center Chinook Lieutenant Guy Brooks pulled up his chopper’s Cargo Ramp to warm up his co-pilot & loadmaster likewise “chefs” of the Meals Ready To Eat (MRE) station well as portable latrine janitors. A Medical Corps Orderly on board in radio contact with Doctor Whitman was instructed to bring her whatever on-board medical equipment, supplies & tools needed for examining and/or tending to the Meesons; personnel entry into both helicopters was via starboard & port front doors aft of the cockpits.

Scions of an illustrious South Dakota farming family dynasty Jay & Millie Meeson were much respected for their business acumen & generosity. A wounded in action Korean War veteran Jay even in his 90s was an intimidating figure, so was his matriarchal wife Millie who most unusually held Master’s degrees in Farm Medicine & Business Administration from the University Of South Dakota.  Much loved by their children & grandchildren they like the Acheampongs whom they’ve known since the late 1960s though the Daniels family were God-fearing Christians well as remarkably good judges of people’s character. Marvin Meeson, presumed heir patriarch of the Meeson family, had all his parents attributes, including well-placed friendships through his US Army service amongst them Army JCS General Benjamin Loughlin whom he’d served as one of his Adjutants for then “Brigadier Duke” in 1999 partially explaining why he’d taken personal interest in ensuring the Meesons received prompt medical examinations by Army & Air Force personnel for ASAP release even if meant overruling Major June Morant’s orders quarantine & confining them to their homes.

Jay & Millie Meeson’s 6,325 square foot house on their 1-1/2 square mile homestead was the largest farmhouse in in Hand County, largest of three structures on two acres adjacent to the south rail spur where the 2-2-2T locomotive appeared main entry was through large west-facing double front doors into a palatial Reception Room dual employed as a family gathering & farm business center. Entering though it with Doctor Whitman Marv offered it well as an adjacent east-facing dormitory for seasonal farm labor for conducting medical examinations of Meeson family members, accommodated 25 seated & standing persons, roomy, warm & comfortable it was the perfect for conducting radiological & biological contamination triage screenings. Forthwith thanking him she’d signaled her medics waiting outside to enter & “set up shop”, marveling at the Reception Room’s plush accommodations they’d exercised considerable care spotting locations for & off-loading medical gear.

Entering it from a right side hallway Jay & Millie warmly greeted Doctor Whitman & her medics Jay spoke first;

“You’re all very welcome here, we’ll accommodate whatever needs you’ve got, feel free to ask any time!”

Smiling back Doctor Whitman thanked them asking if they could use the dormitory for conducing private in-person screenings;

“Yes, absolutely! It’s ready for use now, has ten rooms, two stalls for removing dirty clothes with floor drains, two showers, two toilets, laundry center & break room. We also have a large kitchen & dining Room for use by all ‘military people’ here at any time, coffee’s on now for anyone who wants it!”

exclaimed Millie, smiling back even brighter Doctor Whitman said she & Jay could call her "Mae" & she'd tell Captain McCarthy about the coffee following Marv's biohazard medical examination & return to her following it as McCarthy's liasion with the Meeson family regarding the examinations. Whilst they were speaking two medics has set up an inspection station to “wand” the Meesons for radiation exposure, having just one Geiger Counter to wand all 17 family members Doctor Whitman asked Marv who’d had longest close-in exposure to whatever’s in the “China Tent”;

“Me, Doctor; Mom & Dad were in their bedroom longer, can they be checked first?”

shaking head “no” she then hand signaled the medics to wand him first. Slowly & carefully wanding him all over head to toe no radiation whatsoever was detected, procedure complete Doctor Whitman then asked Marv to escort other medics to a dormitory room for him to be inspected for biohazards, shaking head yes she’d hand signaled them pick their materials, equipment & tools, follow him to it, before ‘dismissing’ him she’d asked were the other Meesons were;

“They’re in the kitchen & dining room warming up & having lunch, my brother Evans, his wife Julie & son Dale are helping out the (Army) engineers now…”

“Leave them to their work!” she’d interjected, …we’ll ‘inspect’ them & those (military personnel) in close proximity to them later, soon as you’re ‘cleared’ (i.e. pass biohazard exposure inspections) I need you to be my ‘traffic conductor’ directing them here and to the dormitory rooms…do you have another room here to ‘lounge’ after they’d been cleared?”

shaking head yes Marv said they could ‘lounge’ in the game room & den next to the kitchen;

“Great! You’re ‘dismissed’, thank you sir!”

Army Engineers Get On With Setting Up Landing Field For The HARVEY C-130s
« Reply #15 on: November 19, 2022, 11:02:54 AM »
John Deere 7R 270 Row Crop Tractor Similar To Those Used By The Meeson Family

Coming up 12:50 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2022 a five Ford F-250 pickup convoy crammed with ENDER detail US Army Corps Of Engineers personnel commanded by Captain Roland McCarthy’s assistant Lieutenant Mark Bedell (“Beetle” after the famous WWII General Walter Bedell Smith) Grondin lead by Ev Meeson, his wife Julie & son Dale in a sixth also crammed with Army engineers arrived at middlemost of three prefabricated metal “crib sheds” on Jay & Millie Meeson’s “south farm” adjacent to grain silos. Rushing out of their F-250 into bitterly cold air Ev, Julie & Dale quickly unlocked the shed’s southmost of three doors revealing six all-weather enclosed cabin John Deere farm tractors of different models, middlemost door revealing several tow trailers of different sizes & kinds, northernmost revealing fuel, oil & water drums, wheeled portable pumps for them, standing some yards behind from them Lieutenant Grondin yelled at Ev;

"They’ll do just fine sir!” then asking whether any were fueled to run now Marv forthwith replied;

“Three of them are for ‘winter operations’ Lieutenant, take them now while Julie, Dale and I fuel the others, should take us 15 minutes.”

Forthwith signaling most of his engineering detail to off-load materials, equipment & tools from the F-150 flatbeds others hustled to the tractors & trailers, rig them for towing, Lieutenant Grondin meantime asking Ev whether two of his engineers could help with fueling freeing-up himself, Julie or Dale to assist other engineers surveying & mapping farmland for landing the C-130s;

“OK Lieutenant, Julie & Dale will help out, they know the terrain out there better than I.”

Signaling OK back to Ev Lieutenant Grondin, Julie & Dale in tow, moved inside Ev’ heated F-250 to review Global Positional Mapping (GPS) images of the Meeson farms he’d called up & studied before leaving Camp Grafton on a military laptop computer. Pointing out several GPS-indicated terrain zones spanning hundreds of yards east of the railroad spur harboring potential obstacles he’d asked which were most problematic for landing C-130s, forthwith replying Julie said there were undulating north-south lowlands 600 feet from the rail spur but none deep enough to prevent these aircraft from landing over them Dale adding all land 4,000 feet east of the spur south of the grain silos were fallowed till 2024, firm enough to accommodate them landing at their maximum weight;

“Snow’s rock hard mostly, not deep enough to prevent C-130s landing on. If anything I’d worry about ‘slip-sliding’ 2,000 feet out from here, ‘black ice’ sections towards the northeast. The C-130s may be restricted to a 700-foot wide x  4,000-foot long rectangular box south of the (crib) sheds, your engineers should check on whether it can be widened, that’s my recommendation!”

Nodding head agreeing Lieutenant Grondin asked if he & Julie would go with engineers marking them out whilst in transit on the tractors;

“Sure! Let us drive them!” Julie forthwith replied, “There’s walkie-talkie sets in each to keep in contact with engineers being towed (on the trailers).”

Stating everyone in the ENDER detail had secure closed-channel radio communication equipment Grondin asked Ev & Julie to “drive point” with an engineer on tractors 100 feet apart in parallel 500 feet north of “China Tent” sweeping (i.e. surveying) grounds up to 5,000 feet east checking local field conditions on way back halting 100 from the rail spur other three tractors currently being fueled sweeping & checking on grounds north of them soon as possible. Saving on precious time whilst wheeling east at predetermined locations engineers were to alight & remove materials, equipment & tools for setting up landing field markers & runway markings, pick them, unused materials, equipment & tools up whilst returning.

Commencing the “tractor runs” at 1:05 p.m. Central Time Dale Meeson’s at center led off closely followed by Julie’s left & north Army Corps Of Engineers Sergeant Josh Morgan right & south. Wheeling slowly snow ground conditions were OK, 1/4th way “downrange” an engineer, materials, equipment & tools setting up landing field markers & runway markings from each of the three tractor-trailer units were dropped offed. Proceeding onwards 2,500 feet downrange all the tractors hit soft, slushy ground several yards east where Julie said there was undulating lowlands, halting her tractor she’d walkie-talkied Sergeant Morris Wilson commanding his engineering section on the tow trailer to get off & check ground conditions, he & other engineers doing so forthwith. Slowly walking some yards around the tractor-trailer poking ground with mud depth measuring sticks they’d yelled out differing “mush” readings all coming in under 6-inches, walkie-talking to Julie Sergeant Wilson told her two engineers, materials, equipment & tools would be dropped off here;

“Ground conditions soggy here but sure the C-130s can handle them, hold till am back on the trailer!”

Climbing back onboard Wilson hand signaled Julie to proceed followed some minutes later by Dale’s & Sergeant Wilson’s tractor-trailer units. Stopping 3/4ths way downrange more engineers, materials, equipment & tools were dropped off, proceeding on to 4,350 feet downrange Dale & Sergeant Morgan hit “black ice”, Julie minutes later at 4,725 feet all gingerly traversing it for several yards till back on hard snow. At 5,000 feet half-hour downrange all tractor-trail units reached the eastern limit of the C-130 landing field, remaining engineers, materials, equipment & tools off-loaded from the trailers for setting up  landing field markers & runway markings, now realizing the 14:00 (2:00 p.m. Central Time) deadline getting the landing field operational was not going to be met Lieutenant Grondin signaled Major Kevin McCarthy stationed in the CH-47F Command Helicopter the bad and good news;

“Sir, several slushy mud spots & ‘black ice’ sheets out here, none deep or long enough to keep the C-130s from landing & taking off but its slow going. Three tractor-trailer units now are on the 5,000 foot (landing field) marker, other three the Meeson’s fueled up now 2/3rds downrange, should be at 5,000 feet in 15 minutes, slow going for them also. All the ‘up range’ (towards the railroad spur) engineers have installed & laid on (landing field) markers & ‘stripes’ (landing field markings), are checking local ground conditions as I speak, no adverse reports so far, keeping finger’s crossed! We’re not going to get all the work done till 14:30 sir, recommend relaying that to HARVEY.”

Pausing some seconds Major McCarthy replied;

“Beetle! That’s OK! Ten minutes ago HARVEY signaled they won’t arrive till 15:00, very bad weather over eastern Wyoming, press on!”

Grateful hearing this Lieutenant Grondin replied the entire line of six tractor-trailer units in 20 minutes were going to sweep the landing field simultaneously up range & be done by 14:40 at the west end of it 100 feet from the railroad spur then rig-up for ground signaling duty before the C-130s arrive, appreciative McCarthy replied back;

“The Meesons are bringing up hot coffee & snacks for everybody there in a few minutes, good work Beetle!”

Army Medics Commence Radiation & Biohazard Exams & Tests On Meesons
« Reply #16 on: November 21, 2022, 05:27:18 AM »
As mentioned earlier, Mavin Meeson was Geiger counter “wanded” first for radiation contamination by Army Medical Corpsmen, uncovering none at 1:08 p.m. February 8, 2023 Army Medical Corps First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie Whitman dismissed him and per her request escorted other medics carrying medical materials, equipment & tools to a dormitory for seasonal farm labor adjacent to Jay & Millie’s house for conducting medical examinations of Meeson family members for biohazards. Escorting two teams of three medics commanded by a Master Sergeant Marv entered the dormitory from the south into a spacious service area with showers, toilets & laundry center, adjoining it a break room then the dormitory proper: ten numbered two-bunk rooms lined in a north-pointing row. Pausing at Room 1 he’d told Master Sergeant Sean O’Malley Rooms 7 to 10 at the north end were available, Meeson family members would be entering & leaving them via the north dormitory door adjacent to Jay & Millie Meeson’s spacious house Dining Room it accommodating up to 30 people, pointing to Room 7 Sergeant O’Malley asked if he (Marv) could be examined inside it whilst his teammates “set up shop” in Rooms 8 to 10;

“The medical examinations for biohazards will take 15 minutes sir. Some tests won’t be comfortable, ‘good news’ is you & everybody else (in the Meeson family) won’t have to endure anymore, so was told by Doctor Whitman. Before we’d arrived (by helicopter) word came from Camp Grafton (i.e. from Captain Roland Mattock) Air Force (Medical Service) medics told him ‘our’ tests were good as theirs and they’re just going to test Air Force personnel here.”

Relieved at hearing this news Marv whilst walking with Sergeant O’Malley & his medics thanked him, entering Room 7 O’Malley said he’d wanted Marv to complete his tests first for establishing biohazard exposure baselines;

“Am told you’d had the longest & closest exposure to whatever’s in the tent, your baselines will be compared to those of your family members, theirs should be lower but could be higher for any number of reasons, what’s desired is nobody exposed to radiation & biohazards, keeping fingers crossed sir!”

Asked to strip off his clothes Marv braced himself for a series of unpleasant & potentially painful examinations & tests, methodically administered by two medics electronically recording their results on a military laptop computer Sergeant O’Malley assured Marv his discomfort was vitally important for “red flagging” chemical pathogens & molecular compounds found in biological weapons, all examinations & tests completed within 13 minutes O’Malley then asked Marv to dress-up whilst he was summarizing examination & test results for establishing the baselines;

“You’ve ‘passed’ them all Major, please return to your folk’s house & escort two family members at a time to the ‘radiation examination station’ in the Reception Room then afterwards to here & Room 8.”

Forthwith returning to Jay & Millie Meeson's house Dining Room where except for Ev, Julie & Dale all the clan, including those who’d bought coffee & snacks for Army personnel working outside in bitter cold, were having lunch, walking in at precisely 1:30 p.m. Marv walked in Jay & Millie finished eating theirs forthwith quizzing him how his “exams” went;

“Were they painful Marv? Doctor Whitman told us about them after you’d left the Reception Room.”

Tightening his mouth Marv replied some were but if everybody cooperated they’d go really fast;

“All mine were negative, pretty sure all of yours will be too. Did Doctor Whitman tell you all that we won’t be tested again by Air Force medics after they get here?”

All nodding heads yes Millie then said she’d left 15 minutes ago to retrieve more medical equipment from “her” helicopter, said you were our “traffic conductor”, start escorting two of us at a time to medics in the Reception Room for radiation “wanding” then to the dorms & game room afterwards where she’d instructed us to remain till the Air Force medics arrive;

“She was very nice about it but was firm that we remain there, soon as Ev, Julie & Dale come back they’ll be 'tested' also, seems 'the military' doesn’t want any of us back outside!”

Millie said sarcastically, replying with certainty Marv said “the military” is working quickly as possible to fly out the 2-2-2T locomotive with as little inconvenience to the us (Meesons) as possible;

“I’d cut them some slack Mom, they’re soon gonna manhandle dozen tons of locomotive not knowing whether it’ll blow up or disappear back into thin air, besides I can say this now to everybody here, Ev, Julie & Dale later, that Colonel Naomi Acheampong’s coming here and she’s got something to do with flying out the loco! Meantime, let's get on with the ‘testing’, Dad, Mom, follow me to the medics (in the Reception Room), you’re next!”

Meeson Farms Landing Zones Ready, HARVEY C-130J Command Ship Arrives OK
« Reply #17 on: November 21, 2022, 11:32:03 AM »
Meantime hundreds yards north of Jay & Millie’s house ENDER detail Army Corps Of Engineers personnel assisted by Ev, Julie, Dale Meeson riding family-owned John Deere tractors-trailer units trekked on surveying & marking out four landing zones for the HARVEY C-130Js. Wheeling in a six tractor-trailer parallel line westwards up range towards the railroad spur everyone checked local grounds conditions 50 feet out either side looking for tell-tale signs of low ground underneath, again encountering mushy soil on undulating lowlands 3,500 feet up range the line slowed. Armed with mud depth measuring sticks majority of engineers on the trailers alighted forming a parallel line methodically marching westwards for several yards poking them through the snow into the ground yelling out “mush” readings meantime, all coming in under 6-inches none were deep enough to preclude them from landing or taxing over it, encountering no other ground anomalies at 2:32 p.m. Central Time the “sweep line” of tractor-trailer units arrived back at their starting points 100 feet east of the railroad spur.

Done with assisting the engineers Ev, Julie & Dale asked Lieutenant Mark Grondin whether they or the tractor-trailers were still needed;

““We need the ‘John Deers’ for collecting landing zone 'stuff' (markers & markings), plan is as each ‘bird’ (C-130J) flies out two tractor-trailers (with engineers) go out at a time retrieving them then straight to the (CH-47F) Chinooks (off-loading them) then back here. If you want we’ll clean & park them back in the sheds exactly as they came out, lock the doors & give you the keys if that’s alright.”

Smiling at the offer Ev said it was acceptable provided he, Julie & Dale could be released now, drive back to Jay & Millie’s house in their Ford F-250 pickup to have a late lunch;

“Yes, you’re dismissed! Don’t worry about ‘feeding’ us again sir, coffee & ‘munchies’ your family brought earlier was just fine! Glad you’d helped us, couldn’t have gotten the ‘airfield’ ready in time otherwise!”

Saying their goodbyes to Lieutenant Grondin & the engineers they’d assisted Ev, Julie & Dale piled into their F-250 forthwith driving south to Jay & Millie’s house to be ‘tested’ for radiological & biological contamination & have chow. Just as they were driving off far off in the cloudy western sky the distinctive rumble of C-130J engines could be heard by Grondin & the engineers, beep-paging his radio set he got on with ENDER detail Commander Major Kevin McCarthy;

“Beetle! HARVEY’s (C-130Js are) four minutes out west, get your men set up for (airfield) ground control duty! First in is the ‘lead ship’ (C-130J commanded by Major June Morant assigned to transporting the 2-2-2T locomotive) landing (airfield) ‘Strip One’ (of four, each aircraft assigned a specific one avoiding landing & take-off delays), be sure your ‘wavers’ (engineers with signaling batons) know where the ‘Super Hercs’ can ‘360’ (make 360 degree powered turns facing east for take offs) close possible to Meeson ‘asphalt’ (roadway parallel to the railroad spur between the grain silos and Jay & Millie Meeson’s house), final (landing) approach signals (from them) in 8 minutes!”

Forthwith acknowledging Major McCarthy’s orders Lieutenant Grondin forthwith barked out his own orders for his engineers to grab batons aircraft ground management equipment, hustle south on foot over the slushy snow covered asphalt to their assigned airfield control stations. Now coming up on 2:37 p.m. HARVEY’s lead C-130J carrying Major Morant suddenly & dramatically popped out of late afternoon cloud rumbling 500 feet directly over its assigned landing zone 400 feet north of Jay & Millie’s home startling its residents, outside the adjacent dormitory for seasonal farm labor with two Meeson family members who’d just finished their biological contamination “tests” Marv reflexively looked up at it whilst screaming by;

“Damn woman (Major Morant) just can’t resist making a ‘grand appearance’ just like she’d done at Panjab (Afghanistan)!”

Looking strangely at him his daughters Edith & Kelly asked what that meant;

“Something to do with the Afghan war ladies, tell you about that later!”

he'd sarcastically replied. Looping 360 degrees near mile distant east the C-130 then descended to 350 feet for final approach radio signaling the three-man Army engineer team assigned to “manage” her after landing she was coming in, standing far west end of the assigned landing zone at its center a Chief Airfield Signalman engineer visually checked her wing attitude & altitude alignments whilst descending with landing lights on, satisfied they were good at 100 foot altitude with a battery-operated green lensed signaling light he’d flashed a steady “A-OK” signal for her to land. Powering in at 120 knots over the 5,000-foot downrange eastern landing zone markers she’d quickly lost speed & altitude, touching down hard at 3,750 feet the pilot reversed-pitched propellers quickly lowering her speed to 40 knots for taxing up to the 200-foot downrange landing zone markers.

Arriving & halting at the markers several seconds later two Airfield Signalman engineer “wavers” standing 50 feet either side of the Chief Airfield Signalman each holding bright LED-orange light airfield signaling batons forthwith guided her into a 200 x 200 foot marked-off box where inside she could rotate 360 degrees in place without having to reverse-thrust back-up to the snow covered Meeson asphalt road parallel to the railroad spur leading to the 2-2-2T locomotive. Slowly proceeding into the box & centering within it the C-130 the Co-Pilot white-lamp signaled the wavers for confirmation they were, simultaneously walking to far ends of the landing zone whilst checking clearances they'd batoned back “OK” back at which point the Pilot executed a 360-degree clockwise nose wheel & engine turn over mushy snow, propellers blowing it towards the signalmen whilst turning. Halting at precisely 2:43 p.m. after the turn all the signalmen rushed up to airplane checking aft ground condition as they went, satisfied it was OK the wavers then signaled the Pilot & Co-Pilot to power down, promptly doing so they’d cleared the Cargo Ramp Door waiting for it to come down three other "Super Hercs" meantime thundering over their respective landing zones taking up landing approach positions for other engineers to guide them in as well.

Colonel Acheampong Arrives At Ellsworth AFB, Now In Transit To The Meeson Farms
« Reply #18 on: November 23, 2022, 09:09:44 AM »
Cruising 500 knots high above cloudy northwestern Iowa the T-38C Talon piloted by Air Force Captain Marie Alvarez-Masto enroute to Ellsworth AFB South Dakota was running late due to strong turbulence forcing her to drop out of supersonic flight her VIP passenger OPOM Commander Colonel Acheampong meantime reading signals between Camp Grafton & the ENDER detail, Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A & HARVEY C-130s over secured channel communications links. Rereading an hours-old three-way conversation between Camp Grafton Commander Colonel Wesley Nathan, Army Corps Of Engineers Captain Roland Mattock, Site 29-A Assistant Commander Major June Morant debating the merits of Air Force Medical Service biological warfare & medical specialists re-examining & testing the Meesons after Army Medical Corps personnel had done so she’d logged mental notes of the exchanges for “consultive discussions” with Morant at the Meeson farms later in the day.

Stating that several Army’s Medical Corps personnel, including First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie Whitman, were now at Camp Grafton teaching refresher courses to their National Guard counterparts Nathan persuasively argued she was the best Army radiological & biological warfare specialist on par with the best Air Force Medical Service personnel anywhere close to the Meesons he entreating Morant to allow her to examine & test them rather than Air Force personnel despite not having field experience. Reluctantly acknowledging Nathan’s arguments Morant signaled the conversations to Colonel Acheampong for her “blessing” she readily doing so on condition Morant release the Meesons soon as possible following their intelligence debriefings so they can get on with overnight & morning farm chores. Replying forthwith Morant said  she’d ask the Site 29-A Intelligence Officers to expedite debriefings of the Meeson family members but was up to them on how long they’d needed to detain them.

Passing back into stable air over Parkston, South Dakota at 12:53 p.m. Central Time Captain Alvarez-Masto gunned the T-38C supersonic again, on course though running 15 minutes late for landing at Ellsworth Colonel Acheampong signaled via secured channel communications an awaiting Air Force Sikorski MH-60G Pave Hawk Special Operations Helicopter equipped with long-range fuel tanks & air-to-air refueling capability awaiting her arrival on the former SAC (Strategic Air Command) Alert Area concrete tarmac “pump handle” for transport to the Meeson farms to “stand ready” for her arrival at 13:15 (1:15 p.m.). Dropping back subsonic over Badlands National Park approaching Ellsworth from the southeast at 300 knots Captain Alvarez-Masto 15 miles out from the airbase signaled the Air Controllers requesting immediate clearance to land on Runway 13 Northwest, forthwith granting it Alvarez-Masto then swung the T-38C wide northeast of the airbase lining up three miles out for a “chute” (landing parachute deployment) landing.

Screaming past the Runway 13 Marker at 160 knots 120 feet up Alvarez-Masto “touched down smooth” 1,500-feet downfield, deploying the parachute second later the airplane quickly lost speed, engine power-rolling on at 60 knots 1,000-feet out from the “handle” she’d dropped the parachute adjacent to an airfield service vehicle dispatched to retrieve it. Rolling on several hundred feet more at reduced speed Alvarez-Masto turned right into the former SAC Alert Area towards the MH-60G Pave Hawk next to it three airfield crewmen one carrying Air Force-issue cold weather jacket & slip-on pants for US Space Force Colonel Acheampong, baton-waved in by another Alvarez-Masto was signaled halt 200 feet from the helicopter Acheampong forthwith popping her aircraft canopy open the third crewman hustling over & hooking on a hanging ladder over the fuselage for her to climb out on. Briskly climbing out on the tarmac she’s hurried to the crewman holding cold weather clothing & hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuit, slipping on the pants she groaned about the cold air;

““Damn! I’d forgotten how cold it gets here (this time of year); thanks for helping Airman!”

Donning the jacket & jumpsuit she’d thanked the Airman again for helping. Walking briskly to the helicopter still donning her flight helmet she’d climbed in, sat down, strapped in the helicopter’s “VIP seat” set up for simultaneous secure channel communications with Site 29-A, ENDOR detail, HARVEY, OPOM Pentagon, latter exclusively between her & OPOM Night Watch Staff for Joint Chiefs Of Staff & Whitehouse communications purposes, doors closed the chopper’s commander Captain Whittaker Lorins forthwith lifting off at 1:19 p.m. Central Time turning east-north-east commencing the 207 mile, hour twenty-minute transit through dense clouds & bone-chilling cold air to the Meeson farms.

HARVEY At Meesons, APs To Jay & Millie's House, Col. Acheampong's On The Way!
« Reply #19 on: November 26, 2022, 07:48:39 AM »
Standing yards south in line with three Army Corps Of Engineers Airfield Signalmen, two baton waving in the HARVEY C-130J Command Ship, ENDER detail Commander Major Kevin McCarthy Jr slowly walked towards its portside. Turning around 360 degrees clockwise within a 200 x 200 foot marked-off box with both arms & hands he’d covered his face from blowing snow thrown up by the aircraft’s four 4-blade Allison T56 turboprop propellers, quickening the walking pace he’d dropped them to see where the Cargo Ramp Door was going to drop. Hustling up to the door with Signalmen in tow just it as was dropping they then stood at attention to greet the HARVEY Commander & staff onboard.

Standing in line at the edge of the aircraft’s Cargo Floor next to the door hinge Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A Assistant Commander Major June Harriet Morant wearing hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuit over winter uniform clothing & gloves as were all HARVEY personnel was flanked by four Pentagon Intelligence Officers & their equipment in briefcases, bags & hard plastic containers of various shapes & sizes from Lemoore NAS Site 29-B recently assigned to 29-A in advance of relocating The Mefford Field Anachronisms there later that year. All Captains, two each Air & Space Force, they like Major Morant since November 14, 2021 were deeply involved “managing” whatever secrets they’d held till could be revealed - if ever - not wasting time Morant saluted McCarthy forthwith asking him to transport the Air Policemen (APs) to the “China Tent”;

“I understand the Meesons have allowed us (military personnel) to use their (Ford) F-250s & tractors & trailers, my APs have orders to relieve your MPs so if you could drive them to ‘the tent’ & relieve your MPs.”

Saluting back Major McCarthy asked her which C-130J had the APs, forthwith replying she’d said it was now landing on ‘Strip 3’ two up from ‘her’ airplane;

“The (four man AP) detail is commanded by Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica, she knows you’re coming. After you’d relieved your MPs I want to meet with you & all your non-medical personnel here inside ‘my ‘Super Herc’ regarding whatever support you can lend us getting ‘that thing in the tent’ in here for takeoff by sundown.”

Reminding Major Morant he’d ‘sat in’ on by order of Camp Grafton Commander Colonel Wesley Nathan of the morning’s discussion between him, her & Army Corps Of Engineers Captain Roland Mattock before the ENDER detail departed that her medical personnel weren’t going to subject the Meesons to additional radiological & biological contamination examinations & testing Major McCarthy asked her when they’d be allowed to return home as they’d needed to tend livestock as another blizzard was coming in that night;

“There’s 14 ‘radtechs & biotechs’ (radiological & biological warfare medical specialists) 'shrink' & 'psycho' (Air Force Psychiatrist & Clinical Psychologist) & assistants in the fourth ‘Super Herc’, no suitable over-snow personnel transport vehicles & tow trailers were at Mountain Home (AFB), really need transportation for them & their equipment to the Meeson’s (i.e. Jay & Millie’s house); they can ride on the (Meesons) ‘John Deers’ (tractors & trailers) you’d used setting up the landing zones (for the C-130Js). Your medical personnel need to brief mine first on whatever they’d uncovered examining & testing the Meesons, if none of them were contaminated you may relieve your medical personnel and I’ll allow the Meesons to return home following their intelligence debriefings.”

Saluting back Major McCarthy said all his non-medical personnel would be signaled to assemble in “her Super Herc” soon as all the C-130Js had landed & positioned to off-load personal, vehicles, materials, equipment & tools in them;

“There six (Meeson) F-250s here, I’ll take one to pick up the APs rest ‘your people’ can use as transports to ‘the tent’, try not to ‘bang them up’ they’re not ours you know!”

he’d said to her with a wink, half-cracking a smile whist winking back to him Major Morant said she’d make absolute sure “her people” gave them “TLC” (Tender Loving Care);

“I know ‘Major’ Marvin Meeson’s here, years ‘senior’ to me he’d not be happy if I’d didn’t do otherwise!”

Getting on with their respective mission command tasks Major McCarthy hustled over the slushy snow covered asphalt parallel to the railroad spur southbound to his CH-47F Command Helicopter south of Major Morant’s C-130J to drive up an F-250 for fetching the APs, all armed with M4 carbines, she with The Pentagon intelligence officers meantime hustling northbound over it towards “Landing Zone 3”. Passing the “Super Herc” next to hers in “Landing Zone 2” carrying the 20-ton RTCC then rotating in position within a 200 x 200 foot marked-off box to off-load it on the road they’d hustled on. Halting at Zone 3 Major McCarthy’s Airfield Signalmen were batoning in the C-130J carrying HARVEY Paranormal Object site operations personnel including communications & APs, support materials & equipment, all glancing north to “Landing Zone 4” closest to grain silos up road of the “China Tent” the C-130J carrying Biological warfare & medical specialists materials, equipment & tools, including an Air Force Psychiatrist & Clinical Psychologist for assessing the Meeson's reactions to the paranormal appearance of the 2-2-2T locomotive they saw, it was still on landing approach. Backtracking & halting again at Zone 3 Morant & the Intelligence Officers looked on as McCarthy & two other F-250s driven by engineer signalmen cautiously headed towards them over the slushy asphalt, halting yards south of them just as the “Super Herc” completed its 360 degree turn McCarthy got out & stood next to Morant yards forward from where the Cargo Ramp Door was going to drop. After what seemed to be an interminably long time waiting the door finally dropped, standing behind Paranormal Object Site Operations Commander (POSOC) Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell right of him AP Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica & four APs, hand signaling to LaMonica & AP detail to get in Major McCarthy’s F-250 Major Morant reminded her & AP shift reliefs were to “take station” in Jay & Millie’s house Reception Room;

“Your orders ‘taking station’ there include not in any way interfering with Meeson family members other than not allowing them to be near the 'Object' (2-2-2T locomotive), they’re OUR guests, treat them with upmost respect. Remember as well, retired Army Major Marvin Meeson is on the Officer Reserve Emergency Roster, show him military courtesy at all times. I don’t expect him to ‘make a fuss’ over your detail taking up station in the Reception Room but if he does contact me immediately and I’ll decide where else you can be stationed!”

Whilst Major Morant was speaking out in the distant east Colonel Naomi Acheampong’s MH-60G Pave Hawk outbound from Ellsworth AFB Western North Dakota was heloing fast towards Jay & Millie’s house, signaling Morant over secured channel communications link via her Command Ship “HARVEY 1” (first C-130J it assigned to airlift the 2-2-2T) forthwith she’d switched on her secure closed-channel radio set;

“Marvel 1 (Acheampong’s code name for the 2-2-2T locomotive ‘recovery’ mission) HARVEY, ETA (Estimated Time Of Arrival) 3 minutes ‘Helo Landing Zone 3’ (set up by the Meesons hours earlier), are ‘batoners’ in place?”

Glancing at Major McCarthy he wondering who “Marvel 1” was nevertheless got on his secured channel communications radio set, signaled Captain Carpenter in the CH-47F Command Helicopter asking if he’d overheard Marvel 1’s message, forthwith confirming he had and two Signalmen on way there now McCarthy then passing on the news to Morant;

“Marvel 1 HARVEY (Morant’s code name), two on way now, OK to land when they’re in sight. Still waiting HARVEY C4 (fourth C-130J it carrying Biological warfare & medical specialists etc.), will meet you ASAP. Out!”

Naomi Arrives, "China Tent" MPs Relieved, HARVEY Medicals To Meeson's House
« Reply #20 on: November 27, 2022, 07:09:18 AM »
Immediately following Colonel Acheampong’s radio communication with HARVEY Commander Major Morant Major McCarthy’s Ford F-250, lent by the Meesons for use by his ENDER detail now with 5 others sub-lent to Morant’s HARVEY operation, loaded with APs commanded by Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica “sped off’ over the slushy snow covered asphalt parallel to the railroad spur to the “China Tent” around the 2-2-2T locomotive southbound of C-130J Landing Zone 4. Approaching helicopter “Landing Zone 3” set up hours earlier by Marvin & Evans Meeson, wives Kay Louise & Julie Deanne many yards north of Jay & Millie Meeson’s housed Acheampong’s MH-60G Pave Hawk continuously forced to helicopter around heavy clouds & snow blizzard cells enroute was spotted it landing precisely at 3:00 p.m. Central Time 21 minutes late she forthwith bolting out portside still wearing a flight helmet straight for the Meeson’s house front door & Reception Room out of McCarthy’s sight. Driving onwards to the “China Tent” McCarthy forthwith signaled his MPs to “stand down”, pulling up to it Master Sergeant LaMonica & her APs piled out. All lining up in front of the F-250 McCarthy’s two MP now standing in front of the tent stood at attention;

“You both are dismissed, Master Sergeant LaMonica’s now in security command here. I’ll drive you both to the command chopper (i.e. McCarthy’s CH-47F Command Helicopter)”

Saluting McCarthy the MPs silently piled into the F-250 he then driving them several yards north to the Command Helicopter occupying Landing Zone 1, ordering the MPs to stay inside he then radio signaled his assistant Lieutenant Mark Grondin then inside monitoring C-130J Army engineers’ signaling operations for all non-medical personnel inside it to: “…secure & vacate it, get inside the F-250, sit on its flatbed (for transport) or hustle (by foot) to Major Morant’s Command Ship (adjacent to helicopter Landing Zone 3) on the double…” immediately afterwards signaling Lieutenant Guy Brooks pilot of the Chinook transporting Army medical personnel to remain on station until further notice.

Meantime up north at C-130J Landing Zone 4, the HARVEY 4 “Super Herc” had landed, rotating 360 degrees within a 200 x 200 foot marked-off box in position to off-load Biological warfare & medical specialists materials, equipment & tools, including an Air Force Psychiatrist & Clinical Psychologist for assessing the Meeson's reactions to the paranormal appearance of the 2-2-2T locomotive, HARVEY Commander Major June Morant, POSOC Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell, four Pentagon Intelligence Officers, McCarthy’s three Airfield Signalmen assigned to Landing Zone 4, standing in line on the slushy snow covered asphalt roadway to the “China Tent” looked on as McCarthy’s Airfield Signalmen batoned it in, signaling halt Morant & company briskly walked up to where the Cargo Ramp Door was supposed to drop just as the Signalmen batoned the aircraft pilot to halt. Emitting a whiny sound whilst lowering the door end landed bare three inches from Morant’s boots, so fixated she was wanting to “talk at” the medical personnel on board she’d not noticed how dangerously close it was, standing in line at the edge of the aircraft’s Cargo Floor next to the door hinge Air Force Medical Service Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim commanding the 13 radtechs & biotechs, Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan, Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their non-commissioned officer (i.e. Sergeant Medical Specialist) assistants  stood at attention whilst Morant saluted them, not wasting time she’d spoke;

“All you were briefed at (Mountain Home AFB) Site 29-A about the ‘Object’ (2-2-2T locomotive) well as the need to airlift it out before sundown if all possible. Those here assigned to ‘inspect the Object’ now should load their gear (materials, equipment, tools etc.) on the (three Meeson’s John Deere farm) tractors-trailers lined up to the right (on the slushy snow covered asphalt roadway) & head off, Major Ranganathan & Captain Bullard bring your assistants & gear with us to the (two) F-250s behind us for the Meeson’s (i.e. Jay & Millie’s) house, (OPOM Commander) Colonel Acheampong’s there now with them (i.e. the Meeson family).”

Moving quickly Doctor Kim, his 13 radtechs & biotechs, C-13OJ loadmaster & cockpit crews well as the Army Airfield Signalmen helping them fetched their gear stacked high on the “Super Herc’s” crowded cargo floor, carting & hand carrying it to the tractor-trailers with alacritous speed, the first train of gear-toting biotecs stepping off the Cargo Ramp Door as Major Morant & Pentagon Intelligence Officers, Doctor Ranganathan & Captain Bullard with one assistant each closely followed by POSOC Captain Maxwell were driving off, Morant back to her C-130J Command Ship parked on Landing Zone 1, Maxwell to POSOC’s Operations Center inside the C-130J parked on Landing Zone 3, loaded in less than three minutes the three tractor-trailers packed high with biotecs & their gear trained south towards the “China Tent” in freezing cold air, snowflakes now billowing from cloudy & increasingly darkening skies.

Naomi & Marvin Meet, Evans Transports Her To Morant's C-130J As Her APs Arrive
« Reply #21 on: November 29, 2022, 05:52:08 AM »
Since before 1:00 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2023 most of the Meeson 17 member clan later joined by Ev, wife Julie & oldest sone Dale had been ensconced within Jay & Millie Meeson’s palatial house for radiological & biological contamination examinations & tests by Army Medical Corpsmen Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie Whitman, they going much slower than anticipated because of numerous false positive biological test readings, very aware of the flurry of “military activity” occurring north of the house meantime much of it could be seen through kitchen, dining room, game room & den well as from Jay & Millie’s bedroom, bathroom. Seconds before the last two clam members Jonathan & Mildred Meeson, Ev’s youngest son & daughter, were to commence being Geiger counter “wanded” first for radiation contamination by Doctor Whitman’s “radspecs” (radiation specialists) Sergeants Lothar Mandel & Loraine Ziegler, Ev’ oldest daughter Margaret (“Maggie” at all times except formally) Calhoun with her son Roy wintering with him & Julie whilst husband Richard was elsewhere on commercial business standing next to the open south game room & den door into the west facing house hallway saw though a line of windows Colonel Acheampong. Wearing a hazmat jumpsuit & aircraft flight helmet hustling towards the Reception Room front door, startled she’d not seen her since before graduating from the US Air Force Academy decades ago, hurrying to the right side Reception Room double door she’d opened just as Acheampong landed on the top door step;

“Naomi! uh, I mean COLONEL Acheampong! Do you remember me?!”

Smiling at her she’d replied with a purposeful combination of delight & seriousness in her voice;

“Of course I do Maggie! I haven’t much time, can you fetch Marv please, I must see him - now!”

Forthwith saying she would Margaret quickly stepped to the right & push-button activated the house & Dormitory intercom system on the wall next to the door;

“Marv! Colonel Acheampong’s at the ‘front door’ (of the Reception Room), she wants to see you now!”

Hearing the message outside of Dormitory Room 8 where a Meeson family member was undergoing biological contamination examinations & tests Marv hustled to the Reception Room via the kitchen, whizzing past from the left Johnathan, Mildred, radspecs Sergeants Lothar Mandel & Loraine Ziegler they still unaware of Acheampong’s presence half out of breath halting at the quarter-opened door next to Margaret Colonel Acheampong spoke first;

“Major Meeson - Marv! Am pleased seeing you again, way too long it’s been!”

Thrilled to see her but remembering Senator Stan Daniel’s admonishment not to let on that he knew she was coming Marv had sadness in his eyes Acheampong forthwith sparing him the greater shame of deceiving her outright;

“Marv, please, don’t pretend you didn’t know I was coming. Stan knew that I was coming here but what he doesn’t know is that you still have ‘Pentagon contacts’ so best we set aside outing who’d leaked about my being here & get on with ‘the mission at hand’ before tonight’s blizzard arrives if you follow me!"

Smiling broadly Marv quietly said “thank you” back forthwith asking if she’d wanted to come in & stay;

“No, I need to meet with Major Morant first. Major Morant has four Pentagon Intelligence Officers with her to ‘examine’ Jay & Millie’s smartphone video recordings of the (2-2-2T) locomotive. I must assume despite Stan’s admonishments not to take anymore of it you or other members of your families did so, these must ‘examined’ also. I’m ‘asking’ that the (Meeson) family remain here (in this house) and that all their smartphones or other video recording equipment & media ‘be at the ready’ for them to ‘examine’ but meantime can you drive me to her ‘Super Herc’ - now?”

Replying that he needed to stay with the family till all had been examined & tested for radiological & biological contamination Marv said Ev would drive her to Morant’s C-130J;

“There’s a two-seat ‘hooded-up’ (for winter operations American SportsWorks) Landmaster (LM500) out back next to the Dormitory ready to go, if that’s OK.”

Replying affirmatively she’s asked him to fetch Ev & meet him at the Landmaster;

“I still remember how to get there (next to the Dormitory), thanks for helping out Marv!”

Maggie stepping aside whilst Marv open the door he forthwith escorting Colonel Acheampong inside the Reception Room Army radspecs Sergeants Mandel & Ziegler startled at seeing a Space Force Colonel showing up unannounced abruptly stopped wanding Johnathan & Mildred Meeson she forthwith telling them to “carry on” & proceeding to the kitchen for exiting the house to the Dormitory Marv meantime fetching Ev. Quickly donning his winter clothing Ev sped from the game room & den though the kitchen outside to the Landmaster, Acheampong already seated & strapped in Ev speechless not having seen her in decades got in, sat down, strapped in, fired up the Landmaster, sped off north to Major Morant’s C-130J parked on Landing Zone 1.

Meantime to Colonel Acheampong’s dramatic appearance at Jay & Millie’s house, Major McCarthy driving the Meeson F-250 had pulled up next to the “China Tent” he & five APs forthwith bailing out. Witnessing McCarthy relieving his MPs, Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica directing two of her APs take station her & other two walk towards the Reception Room front door, McCarthy driving off with his MP, Maggie Calhoun still in the Reception Room again signaled Marv who’d returned to Dormitory Room 8 intercom for him to hurry back to the Reception Room;

“We’ve got more company Marv, three Air Police are walking to the Reception Room front door, think it best you’d ‘greet’ them!”

Yet again hustling out of Dormitory Room 8 where another Meeson family member was undergoing biological contamination examinations & tests by Lieutenant Whitman’s “biospecs” (biological contamination specialists) to the Reception Room he’d arrived just as Master Sergeant LaMonica was ringing the doorbell. Opening the right double door with Army courtesy for benefit of Sergeants Mandel & Ziegler Marv stood at attention in front of LaMonica standing on the door step behind her either side on the ground level walkway Sergeants Jackson Palmer & LaToya Taylor armed with M4 carbines, Palmer taking & right-side ground stationing LaMonica’s before she’d pushed the doorbell, they also standing at attention. Forthwith saluting Marv in Air Force courtesy out of respect for his senior rank LaMonica spoke first;

“Major Marvin Meeson, I’m Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica of the HARVEY security detail. My orders from HARVEY Commander Major Morant is for us and two APs now guarding ‘the tent’ to ‘take station’ in your Reception Room until further notice. We are instructed by Major Morant to extend every courtesy to you and others in this house. You may move about as you please without restriction but we ask that all of you stay clear of ‘the tent’. May we come inside, sir?”

Saluting back Marv said they absolutely could;

“We’d been ‘stationing’ Major McCarthy’s MPs in here (Reception Room) even though they were supposed to be stationed inside his (CH-47F) Chinook. McCarthy’s detail has been out there ‘freezing solid’ for hours, we’d (the Meeson’s) sent them coffee & snacks earlier today, they dropping in to ‘warm up’ in here instead of the Chinooks time to time giving them more coffee & hot food, your detail is welcome to it also!”

Smiling back in gratitude LaMonica said they’d be happy to partake of the Meeson’s generosity;

“Major Meeson, I understand Major Morant knew you while in Afghanistan, sad you were ‘the best’ looking after your (Army) engineers well as her Air Force comrades, it’s a pleasure being here and knowing you sir!”

Forthwith waking in the Reception Room & taking up station at the far east end LaMonica, Mandel & Ziegler each checked their hazmat jumpsuits for clinging snow before sitting down on a long sofa behind a just as long coffee table ladened with food & drinks, including hot coffee;

“Mind if we have the coffee sir?”

Sergeant Taylor politely asked Marv;

“Absolutely Sergeant, Army Lieutenant Doctor Whitman’s ‘medics’ been partaking of the coffee & food along with McCarthy’s MPs as well, those two ‘wanding’ (for radiation) my brother’s kids can’t wait to ‘descend’ on it, they’ve been working near non-stop since arriving here!”

Marv said smilingly whilst walking past them on way back to Dormitory Room 8 they unsmilingly winking back whilst wanding Jonathan & Mildred.

Evans Drives Naomi To June's C-130J, Army Engineers Told About The 2-2-2T
« Reply #22 on: November 29, 2022, 02:23:43 PM »
American SportsWorks Landmaster LM500 With Snowplow Similar To That Evans Meeson Drove Colonel Naomi Acheampong To Major June Morant's C-130J Command Ship

Charging north from Jay & Millie Meeson’s Dormitory for seasonal farm labor adjacent to their house in a snow plow-equipped American SportWorks Landmaster LM500 driven by Evans Meeson up to Army Corps Of Engineers Major Kevin McCarthy’s ENDER detail CH-47F Command Helicopter in Landing Zone 1 OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong his passenger “directed” him to turn left starboard of her Air Force Sikorski MH-60G Pave Hawk Special Operations Helicopter & stop, forthwith doing so seconds later she’d bolted out over to & inside the helicopter. Relieving herself of the flight helmet she’d pulled out a Space Force-issue Colonel’s knit winter cap tucked in her hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuit & donned it meantime instructing the Pave Hawk’s aircrew to remain on station till further notice, rushing back inside the Landmaster she “directed” Ev to drive up to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship Cargo Ramp Door via the slushy snow covered asphalt road north towards Jay & Millie’s grain silos. Crowded with vehicles & walking personnel from other HARVEY C-130Js streaming south towards the “China Tent” Ev tracked several yards parallel right of it whilst being gawked at by incredulous Air Force personnel & Army Corps Of Engineers the latter hoofing north to the Command Ship, halting short of the C-130J’s Cargo Ramp Door Acheampong politely “dismissed” him requesting he’d returning to Jay & Millie’s house the way they'd came;

“If you would Ev, please tell Marv that I’ll be back soon as possible. Also ask him if Jay’s study next to his bedroom (Jay’s & Millie’s) can be used for meeting with him, Jay & Millie well as my Intelligence Officers, we’re going to be in there ‘for a while’ and I still do remember it being the most ‘secure’ room in the house.”

Assuring her that he would Ev said he was glad to see her again, she smiled back thanking him for the transportation;

“Any other time I’d be ‘talking up a storm’ with you & the (Meeson) family, maybe later this year! Captain (John Ellis) Maves commanding ‘my’ chopper may have a crewman standing outside ‘thumbing’ you for a ride to the house, they’re ‘on station’ till further notice and I’d allowed them to ‘warm up’ in it if you-all don’t mind.”

Replying that all military personal on the farm were welcomed to do so & he’d be looking for him. Briskly walking around & on C-130J’s Cargo Ramp Door Colonel Acheampong marched up it to halting short of the Cargo Floor standing perpendicular to the left of HARVEY Commander Major June Morant & four Pentagon Intelligence Officers two each standing either side of her, right ENDER detail Major Kevin McCarthy in front of two lines of officers, non-commissioned (i.e. Sergeants) & enlisted Army Engineers well as flight crews of the detail’s CH-47Fs. Gingerly walking left around Acheampong three more engineers moved right in line with the second row, forthwith standing at attention Sergeant Mark Lamond the last in shouted out;

“Senior Officer Present! AH TENN HUT!”

the formations promptly standing to attention as Acheampong stepped on the Cargo Floor, Morant forthwith turning head right & saluting, Acheampong saluting her back she’d ordered:

“Carry on with your mission Major!”

back whilst walking left & standing next to Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan at Morant’s far left. Not wasting a second Morant addressed the ENDER detail personnel present;

“Your detail section was assigned here to set up landing zones for the “Super Hercs” on very short notice, you’d done that magnificently, I thank you. Your all are still needed for assisting HARVEY personnel load what’s in ‘the tent’ into this airplane well as seeing it off to Mountain Home (AFB), that’s absolute top priority of my mission here, flying it out by sundown if possible but flying it out!”

“Right now I’ve got ‘radspecs’ & ‘biospecs’ checking ‘that thing inside the tent’ for radiation & biowarfare contamination, hopefully they’ll find neither, neither is right for all of you not to know what ‘that thing’ is besides us on ‘this side’ (i.e. her, Acheampong & Intelligence Officers), Major McCarthy ‘on your side’ & his ‘medical people’ in the Meeson’s house, you’re going to be ‘working around it’ so I’ll tell you now what it is and how vitally important it is to fly it out of here!”

“That ‘thing’ is a 12-ton 19th Century 2-2-2T Whyte Classification Locomotive similar to the Wilmarth ‘Pioneer’ at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, it ‘materialized’ literally out of thin air this morning. We have no idea where it came from, we don’t know who or what brought it here, we do know its presence represents a serious National Security Threat and therefore it absolutely must be relocated to a secure location before the next blizzard sweeps in tonight!”

“By law all of you must observe all secrecy protocols concerning the locomotive’s presence & move to Mountain Home (AFB), I do trust that you all will! The Meesons also are aware of its presence & move and likewise will be subjected to security protocols. Retired Army Major Marvin Meeson as all of you I understand have met still holds Top Secret clearances, he’ll assure us that his family members will observe them as well!”

“Just before we’d assembled here Lieutenant Doctor Louise Whitman in charge of the Army radspecs & biospecs signaled Major McCarthy that her team will momentarily complete their exams & tests on the Meesons & review them with my Air Force counterparts, assuming none were contaminated Major McCarthy is authorized to release them for returning (helicoptering) to Camp Grafton, you here are authorized to return once our (HARVEY’s) mission is complete meaning flying out the locomotive.”

““We know that you’d had a long, cold day here, we ask that you help out just with ‘loading the loco’ in this airplane, once done you’re authorized to ‘pack up & go home’, we’ll handle collecting your airfield materials, equipment & tools, transport them to Camp Grafton later. Bad weather’s coming in tonight so you’ll need to leave soon as possible, ‘my Super Hercs’ won’t have problems flying through it than the helos (helicopters).”

Standing silently whilst Morant spoke Acheampong added this;

“The blizzard coming in tonight is a real doozy! I’d already ordered my (MH-60) ‘Pave Hawk’ commander now ‘standing station’ until further orders to be on alert to my releasing them for returning to Ellsworth (AFB) without me, I’ll be flying with the air flotilla to Mountain Home tonight.”

Morant shaking her head in agreement considering they’d jointly planned for this possibility Colonel Acheampong added this;

“I was ordered by the JCS Chair (Joint Chiefs Of Staff Chair Marine Corps General James Harrissey III) to ‘take command’ here, true given I’ll be ‘supervising activities’ hereon but Major Morant’s in charge of them. The Pentagon’s concern that’s also mine is obtaining intelligence regarding the locomotive, Morant ‘calls the shots’ with everything else, she’s got my complete confidence!”

Forthwith saluting Morant Acheampong asked if she could drive one of the Meeson’s F-250s with Morant’s Intelligence Officers back to Jay & Millie’s house to commence the intelligence gathering work with Meeson family members;

“One’s outside (next to the airplane) loaded up with the Intelligence Officer’s gear (i.e. their equipment in briefcases, bags & hard plastic containers of various shapes & sizes) to the Meeson’s house ma’am.”

Morant forthwith replied, appreciative Acheampong said thanks back she then hand signaling the officers to follow her over to it, approaching it first she’d directed them to climb in as passengers;

“I’ll do the driving Captains, farm vehicle driving over slushy snow was my forte growing up in Colorado, could be bumpy get’n to the house, strap in y’all!”

HARVEY Medical Personnel Arrive At "China Tent", "Shrink & Psycho" With Meesons
« Reply #23 on: November 30, 2022, 12:05:55 PM »
Riding uncomfortably on three sets of John Deere tractors-trailers from HARVEY C-130J Landing Zone 4 through billowing snowflakes from cloudy & increasingly darkening skies with their gear (materials, equipment & tools) over the slushy snow covered asphalt road south towards the “China Tent”, HARVEY POSOC Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell, Air Force Major Doctor Kim commanding 13 radtechs & biotechs, Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan & Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their assistants passively watched the frenetic activity associated with moving personnel, materials, equipment & tools towards it.  Briefly halting at Maxwell’s “Super Herc” on Landing Zone 3 he forthwith alighted & hustled into it, passing the 20-ton RTCC being driven off the C-130J on Landing Zone 2 they came upon & passed Major Morant’s “Super Herc” Command Ship on Landing Zone 1 just as Colonel Acheampong & two of Army Corps Of Engineers Major Kevin McCarthy’s ENDER detail engineers were entering it seconds before Morant commenced addressing his engineers about the 2-2-2T locomotive inside the tent.

Motoring on past Colonel Acheampong’s MH-60G Pave Hawk Helicopter over Landing Zone 3, McCarthy’s ENDER detail CH-47F Chinooks over Landing Zones 2 & 1 onto the snow covered asphalt parking lot next to Jay & Millie’s house the caravan halted in front & 60 feet from the “China Tent” just as HARVEY Air Force Police Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica & two relief APs walked out of the Reception Room front door. Hustling straight to Doctor Kim he uncomfortably sitting on the lead tractor-trailer flatbed they’d saluted him;

“Sir! We have orders to allow your detail (of 13 radtechs & biotechs) access to the tent, you now may proceed unhindered. We also have orders to stand guard around your areas of operations you granted authority by Major Morant to control who goes & comes from them.”

Now standing on the snow-covered parking lot Doctor Kim forthwith saluted back asking that one of her APs escort a radtech & two biotechs, all Sergeants, he’d assigned to confer with Major McCarthy’s counterparts in Jay & Millie’s house, Doctor Ranganathan, Captain Bullard & assistants to “Major Marvin Meeson” for commencing psychological evaluations of Meeson family members, Sergeant LaMonica saying she’d do that after “planting” her AP detail around Doctor Kim's areas of operations, forthwith replying they’d need to go now LaMonica ordered Sergeant Jackson Palmer to conduct the escorting.

Expeditiously unloading their gear (materials, equipment & tools) off the tractor-trailer flatbed the radtechs & biotechs, Doctor Ranganathan, Captain Bullard, their assistants & Sergeant Jackson briskly walked to Jay & Millie Meeson’s Reception Room front door, ringing the bell Jay hustled over to it from the kitchen, forthwith opening it up he’d spoke first;

“Major (Ranganathan)! My son Marvin, Major Meeson, had been expecting you (et. al.), I’ll take you & those here seeing ‘my family’ (the Meeson clan), Sergeant Palmer can take ‘the others’ to the Dormitory where the Army ‘medical people’ are.”

Replying with thanks Doctor Ranganathan, Captain Bullard & their assistants & gear followed Jay to the kitchen then game room & den, ‘his family’ congregating in groups he’d asked those in the kitchen to assemble in the game room it being the most spacious. Inside it with the entire Meeson clan Jay stood next to Millie, Marv, Ev & their wives either side in front of Doctor Ranganathan, Bullard & assistants, asking whether they could leave their gear in the kitchen Jay said “of course” Doctor Ranganathan & Bullard’s assistants forthwith relieving them of their gear moving it to the kitchen. Speaking first Doctor Ranganathan said he & Captain Bullard were here “…to assess your reactions to the paranormal appearance of the locomotive on the spur track earlier in the day...” from a clinical standpoint;

“Frankly we’re here to determine if any or all of you had suffered psychological and/or physical distress over the locomotive’s paranormal appearance, nothing more. I already see that you all are ‘taking things in stride’ quite well considering the shock of the thing materializing out of thin air. I also see you’re a tight knit family with good psychological & physical mutual supporting, do you agree Captain Bullard?”

Shaking head yes Bullard added that if any family member believed that the locomotive’s presence presented a mortal threat they’d wouldn’t had wanted to be anywhere near it much less ‘tent’ it over;

“I rarely see such strong ‘cohesion’ in the presence of totally unpredictable mortal danger. Tightly knit extended farm families like yours exhibit that best in my opinion me being a member of one know that well! I think we can conduct the psychological evaluations as a group, Doctor Ranganathan, do you agree?”

Forthwith replying yes he’d added that whilst they were being conducted he’d be watching for physiological stresses addressing those individually with each family member;

“Hopefully we won’t detect anxieties posing potential long-term psychological & physical harm, if all goes well we’ll be done in a half-hour afterwards Major Morant’s intelligence team (i.e. The Pentagon Captains) will be conducting interviews with some or possibly all of you. If OK with you all let’s get on with the evaluations now!”

PORBOF "Tent Farm" Goes Up On Jay & Millie Meeson's House Parking Lot
« Reply #24 on: December 03, 2022, 09:19:15 AM »
Meantime outside & adjacent to Jay & Millie Meeson’s house 60 feet east of the “China Tent”,  Air Force Major Doctor Kim, his remaining 10 radtechs & biotechs, several Air Force & Army Engineers, good number of the latter, just arriving on scene led by ENDOR detail Commander Kevin McCarthy marching them double-time over slushy snow covered asphalt from Major Morant’s C-130J Command Ship hundreds feet up road, were expeditiously unloading their medical gear off the Meeson’s three John Deere tractor-trailer units well as materials, equipment & tools for setting up operations tents, gas engine-powered floodlight units, steel & plastic ropes & ties, ladders, sit-down stools, many other kinds of equipment, including a 5-gallon tub of biodegradable grease & brooms for “sliding” the 2-2-2T locomotive over its rails in event any of its wheels were locked-up. The Mountain View AFB Site 29-A HARVEY mission planners knowing from satellite photographs Jay & Millie’s house was fronted by an asphalt vehicle parking lot recommended placing Paranormal Object Radiological & Biological Warfare Operations Facilities (PORBOFs, i.e. tents, Facilities or “Fs” by ENDER detail & HARVEY personnel),  problem was it was covered with four inches of snow, brooms & shovels brought with the other equipment inadequate for removing it, remembering the Meesons had an American SportWorks Landmaster fitted with a snow plow Army Corps Of Engineers Corporal Matthew Doud Jr who’d seen Colonel Acheampong riding in it forthwith speaking up to McCarthy about it;

“Sir! The Meesons have a ‘Landmaster’ with a snowplow on it…”

Cutting him off mid-sentence McCarthy forthwith radio signaled Air Force Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan in-house with the Meeson clan conducting psychological evaluations of them asking if he could speak with Jay, signaling Jay snacking in the kitchen to come into the game room he’d asked him to speak with Major McCarthy latter speaking first;

“Jay, Sir! Can we use your Landmaster for plowing snow off the parking lot - now?!”

Glad to oblige Jay replied he’d get it driven over there forthwith;

“Evans will bring it over, he’s getting ready to go now, should be there in a minute!”

Flying outside the east kitchen door “wintered-up” with jacket & cap on Ev piling into the Landmaster & cranking it up turned on headlights as was getting dark, motoring south parallel to the Dormitory he’d turned west around them just as distant western clouds were slit-parting bathing everything in glorious golden late afternoon sunlight;

“Maybe God’s with us now getting that loco outta here!”

he'd mused, motoring around the house’s south end & right onto the parking lot Major McCarthy coming towards him signaled HALT! in front of Jay & Millie’s bedroom. Opening the Landmaster’s left fabric cab door Evans asked McCarthy if any of his engineers knew how to operate it;

“Not sure who does but YOU do Evans, follow my engineer’s signals where to plow if you would!”

Signaling two of them to come over & direct Evans McCarthy forthwith hustled back to the tractor-trailer train to direct his other engineers unloading “stuff” on it, including ladders for removing the “China Tent’s” fabric end covers & doors, until all F-Tents associated with radiological & biological contamination examinations & tests of the locomotive were up, personnel, materials, equipment & tools in them, no one was allowed to physically touch it. Working expeditiously with Army engineers directing him within 8 minutes Evans had cleared off snow over most of the parking lot to spot F-Tents of differing foot sizes;

•   F-1 (8x10) Object Site (i.e. 2-2-2T locomotive) Radiological & Biological Medical Operations Command Center
•   F-2 (6x8) Radiological Contamination Evaluation Unit
•   F-3 (10x12) Radiological Contamination Hazmat Garments & Materials Disposal, Radiological Specialist Medical First Aid
•   F-4 (6x8) Biological Warfare Evaluation Unit
•   F-5 (10x12) Biological Contamination Hazmat Garments & Materials Disposal, Biological Specialist Medical First Aid
•   F-6 (10x12) Materials, Equipment & Tools Storage
•   F-7 (10x12) General Medical First Aid Station, Latrine, Sanitation & Rest Area

Setting them up according to site arrangement plans drafted at Site 29-A earlier that day, materials, equipment & tools assigned to each were laid in place within marked-out spaces on wet asphalt by Air Force engineers, tents placed over them. Descending upon them & tents piled high on the three tractor-trailers like hungry vultures Air Force & Army engineers feverishly offloaded & “spotted” materials, equipment & tools assigned to the marked-out spaces. Up & operational first Tent F-1 closely was followed by F-6 & F-7 the rest up & operational minutes thereafter, portable gas powered electric generators & associated distribution systems, wiring, etc. powering equipment, tools, electric lamps & floodlighting etc. for the “tent farm”, lamps & floodlights surrounding the “China Tent” in place as well. By 3:45 p.m. Central Time bright late afternoon sun was bathing the Meeson farmlands, “China Tent”  well as ongoing military operations, radiological & biological examinations & tests of the 2-2-2T locomotive by Air Force radtechs & biotechs could now commence.
