Abstract

In his January 24, 2018 interview with Emily Deinert, Gene Driver discusses his career in the Air Force – he served during the Cold War and the Vietnam War. During the Cold War, he was loaned out to the CIA and worked in Area 51 with an alias doing research with the spy planes. He discusses who else worked in Area 51 with him (he knows only aliases), and why they were chosen to work on this secret project. Driver then talks about when he was sent to Vietnam in 1967, and describes the mortar attacks on the air force base at which he was stationed and how he earned a bronze star with the “V” device.
