"Since the early 2000s, we have seen an increasing number of unauthorized and/or unidentified objects in military-controlled training areas and training rangers and other designated airspace. Reports of sightings are frequent and continuing," said Scott Bray, Deputy Director Of Naval Intelligence.

A new office under the Secretary of Defense is dedicated to investigating hundreds of reported UAPs.
