Lecture: Insights from investigating unidentified threats for the U.S. Department of Defense (recorded)

Luis was originally going to join us at the conference, but that will not be possible due to a personal issue. However, Luis still wants to answer questions and speak to the audience of the International UFO Congress. He says: “The UFO community have been ridiculed and marginalized and yet, somehow, doggedly persisted in their pursuit of the truth, despite the naysayers and cynics.” He continued: “It is a fact that part of my inspiration for coming forward after these many years was due to the multitudes of brave men and women who continued to ask the hard questions despite the common consensus of the system.”

Although he can not physically make it to the conference, we will show an interview with Luis recorded exclusively for the International UFO Congress. We will also review the timeline of how Luis’ work with the DoD came to light and made it into headlines around the world. You have time to send in questions you would like Luis to be asked.
