Sailor’s Anthology is a fictionalized account of the now famous NIMITZ TIC TAC UFO encounter that happened in November 2004 off the coast of San Diego, California. In 2008 when I wrote the story, many involved were still in active duty.
I chose to fictionalize the historical record in the effort to protect the identities of those still serving. Why did I write the story? After retiring from the United States Navy earlier that year, memories of the encounter continued to trouble me greatly.
When I did try to tell others my story, I could tell that nobody really believed me or they believed there had to be a more prosaic explanation.
Not knowing what else to do, I wrote these short stories and self-published them in the Library of Congress as a way to hide in plain sight what has now become contemporaneous evidence of the actual event.
It was my hope then that if the TIC TAC encounter ever did become public, my book might serve as evidence now.
My plan worked. You now hold in your hands a piece of history itself. About the Author: Kevin M. Day is a 21 year Navy veteran.
