Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 6:30 pm, Joe Foster Joseph spent the first of his formative years growing up in East Hampton, LI, NY before moving to a farm in New Jersey. He enlisted in the US Coast Guard in 1969 serving thru 1973. During this time he encountered several UFO related events he considered transformational. While in the U.S. Coast Guard he was trained as a Navigator and Signalman (Quartermaster) performing those duties on board a high endurance, Coast Guard cutter, the USCGC Mellon. He served both on Ocean Station patrols (Victor) as well as well as having deployed to the Republic of Vietnam as part of Operation Market Time.
Joseph’s background includes; Project/Program management, IT, Science & Technology, and Communications. He also worked for the FBI in Tech Services, managed a data center for Merrill Lynch. During the time he spent with Merrill Lynch as an AVP (Assistant Vice President), historically, his operation cleared the first government security on behalf of the parent company, ML&Co with the Federal Reserve Bank of NY. His FedWire Data Center cleared $billions in Government Securities and funds transfers on a daily basis. Joe also provided leadership and program direction in the development of new technologies for the Department of Defense and the aerospace industry. Among these new technologies included; an automated gun sight with heads up display, an advanced waste to energy system and the promotion of an innovative data storage technology using a crystal as a high capacity storage medium. Joseph’s presentation will focus primarily on his experiences while in the Coast Guard and information related to the military and UFOs. He will speak specifically of events having taken place at sea dovetailing with interesting information that surfaced, quite by accident during a conversation with a person whom he considered “In the know” about UFO related “events”. He discusses these items from first hand experience including the anecdotal information subsequently acquired. These events are just a part of other incidents having taken place throughout his life, the first at the age three. Other non-military related events to be discussed at a later date.
His experiences represent a personal journey and his effort of trying to understand them. This is what inspired this lecture, created specifically for Main Line MUFON. Joseph believes our lives are connected to the unknown with a “silver” thread and if we accept that which is offered, there is an opportunity to attain valuable insights into not only ourselves but also the universe in which we live. Joe considers some of his experiences awe inspiring, some perhaps frightening. For those who hear this presentation about his journey, each may come away with information to contemplate and perhaps even the opportunity find something that speaks to their own condition.
