- SUMMARY OF INTERVIEW
- From 1992 through 1994, Dan ("D.L")
Sherman claims to have worked with a secret military program to communicate
with aliens. He was a government specialist who received communications
from alien beings and typed them on a computer terminal. His job was analogous
to a communications officer on a ship receiving morse code but with more
depth and greater exchange between the parties. He never saw any aliens,
only communicated with them "intuitively".
- Sherman says he was prepared for this
role by the aliens before his birth. Apparently during an abduction of
his mother in 1963, his genetic structure was slightly altered to allow
him to receive alien communications. He was unaware of this ability until,
years later, he was briefed about it while in the Air Force. He was assigned
to a program called "Project Preserve Destiny" (PPD). He was
told that the purpose of the program was to provide a network of communications
in the future when electromagnetic communications would not work.
- He calls the ability "intuitive
communications" (IC). His abilities were "activated" during
an 8-10 week course at NSA headquarters at Fort Meade in early 1992. It
was a sort of "night school" after his daytime training in another
secret but conventional field.
- After training, Sherman's PPD duties
were veiled by conventional top secret duties at two Air Force bases. While
at work he would receive notification (apparently psychic), that a communication
was about to begin. He would then open a special blank window on the computer
terminal where he was working and would type the communication into it.
He would then close the window, and the information would be sent to an
- The content of the communications ("comms")
were numbers mostly. It was mainly things he did not understand, but some
of the numbers he recognized as the coordinates of locations on earth.
He says he received longer comms right after major space launches such
as Arianne and the Shuttle.
- Sherman says: "During my last few
months I started to receive what I thought to be abduction data. This is
when I started having questions and I began to want out of the whole thing.
This led to the sequence of events resulting in my discharge. I think they
were testing my resolve as well because all of a sudden the comms were
not totally in code anymore. I thought that was quite odd. I'm not sure
what was going on but I didn't like the comms. I would be told locations,
resistance levels, residual pain levels, potentiality for recall and each
case that I reported would be given a code. I had no idea what the codes
were but I didn't like it... bottom line. I felt like I was reporting the
lab results of a bunch of mice experiments."
- Sherman says he left the PPD program
in Dec. 1994 and obtained release from the military in April 1995 because
of his discomfort with what he was learning.
- Sherman says he shows no evidence of
psychic ability apart from communication with these aliens. Since leaving
the military, he has received no further comms and has had no further contact
with his previous government contacts in the program. No government agents
have threatened him to keep quiet, but he fears that any improper disclosures
of his "conventional" top secret work could get him in trouble.
He has been working on a book, but that project has been slowed by his
own concern about "legal issues."
- Sherman says that his communication with
the aliens was two-way. He calls them complex creatures. He says that although
he cannot describe them visually, "mentally, they are rigid, disciplined
and mostly unemotional." He did sense compassion from them, however.
"It was almost like this was their nature but they overrode this characteristic
because they perhaps felt it was a weakness."
- An alien told him that they had been
visiting earth "since the beginning."
- "They had made there presence known
at some time in the past to our ancestors and that the whole thing went
haywire somehow, so they have chosen to remain selective in their revelations
since. They impacted three historical cultures in the past. Which ones
they didn't say, but I have extrapolated since based on other information.
I also learned that there are other alien 'species' besides the ones I
commed with. The whole reason for PPD is to train a certain number of humans
to be able to communicate with the aliens so as to provide a network of
communications in the future when electromagnetic communications will not
work. I was never told what 'event' this would be, but I have my own ideas
based on other information I've learned over the years."
- If anyone would like to ask Mr. Sherman
about his experiences, he has agreed to answer questions by email. His
replies will be saved and added to a new web document, so they are available
to everyone and he does not have to answer the same questions repeatedly.

insider Dan Sherman is now
