The Case of Valiant Thor

Date: March 16th, 1957
Location: Alexandria, Virginia, USA
Claim: Extraterrestrials Meet with President Eisenhower

The book “Stranger at the Pentagon”, by Frank E. Stranges, claims that on this date, three extraterrestrials from the planet Venus, led by Commander Valiant THOR, landed in a farmer’s field in Alexandria, Virginia. Upon the arrival of Local Police, who were the first to respond, THOR requested to meet with The President, and was whisked away to the Pentagon where he initially met with the Secretary of Defense Neil H. McELROY.

After the meeting with McELROY, THOR was taken to the White House where he met with President EISENHOWER, Vice President Richard NIXON and the Joint Chiefs. It was at this meeting that THOR made it known to the group that he represented an intergalactic High Council, who were worried about the Earth’s nuclear capabilities and the possibility of the destruction of the human race brought about through nuclear warfare. THOR remained on Earth for a period of three years, in what appeared to be an advisory capacity. Although President EISENHOWER wanted to make the arrival and concerns of the extraterrestrials public knowledge, he was persuaded by NIXON and the Joint Chiefs not to do so.

Frank E. STRANGES, who was a federal marshal and chaplain who had top-secret security clearance at the Pentagon, claims he had first hand knowledge of this, and in fact had several meetings with Valiant THOR and his companions. STRANGES’ claims have been supported by Harley Byrd, the nephew of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, who worked for the Department of Defense from 1957 to 1963 and was assigned to Project Blue Book, the secret military program that investigated UFO reports, as well as members of President EISENHOWER’s family.
