Hello, I do not know how to start this account, but here it goes.Back in 1972 I had just return from Vietnam and was station with the 3rd Cav at Ft Lewis,WA.I arrived in Oct 27,1971. About a month later the D.B.Cooper case happen (you know the guy that jump from the airplane with some $200,000).
Well in February of 1972 we were(3rd Cav, 3rd Squadrom) assign to the FBI and we were taken to the mountains in southern Washington state along the Columbia river. We spend a little over a month searching those mountains for this guy(D. Cooper aka D.B.Cooper).
Well during the 3rd week we were around the 6500ft to 7000ft altitude searching, during our search we had found some some dead bodies in different state of dis composition at different location in our search area. During the 3rd week my squad was assign to the far left side of the line we were about 4 to 5 meters apart it was foggy that day. We had started to search around 8 AM and had been transported to an area around 7000 ft, I was the squad leader and during our search that day I found some strange structures in the forrest, weird logs that had been place in very strange position some broken small trees about 4 to 7 in in diameter which had been broken at about the 7 or 8 ft high.I did not mention anything because it was not relevant to our search.
Now we continue searching and moving west along the top of a cliff which was running almost parallel to the Columbia river. It was close to 11 am and it was very cold. The fog had gotten a bit heavier and there was a lot of brush and small trees from a few ft high to around 12 to 16 ft. Then there was a moment that I had to walk thru some heavy brushes and we got kind of separated to about 5 to 6 meters apart from the next man to my right. As I fought my way thru the brush and small trees I came to a small opening about 20ft wide I could not see my right hand man but we could talk to each other as I cross the opening
I notice to my front left a dark section on the vegetation in front of me, but with the fog I could not tell what it was and I just continue, as I approach the dark area I started to smell something rotten and nasty, I thought it was probably a dead body and move closer to take a look, the closer I got the stronger the smell became. I mover to the left some and started to approach the dark spot when suddenly I notice it move and step in front of me.
I look and that thing was huge I could see dark brown hair but did not see the head until I look up I mean up. This thing was about 11 to 12 ft tall and had a human face, I froze in place and tried to call for my companions but I could not utter a sound. This thing suddenly move with such speed forward and hit me with one arm and send me stumbling about 10 or 12 ft to the left, I try to get control of my body but I was to close to the cliff and fall down some 30 or 40 meters. I scream as I fell and was lucky that the rest of my squad heard me. It took them some 2 hrs to get me up from the lower section I was hurt, damage my back and left leg, and was send to Ft Lewis, military hospital.
Now what I saw I never told a soul, this thing was no animal that I ever seen, it look so human like, but so so big and muscular. It had hair all over its body except for part of its face and hand, as I can recall his arms had less hair than the rest of his body. What I remember the most was how huge and muscular this thing was. A couple of days back I was watching a video on youtube when I saw the same face and I realize that what I had seen was a Bigfoot. I have been in combat and been in ambush but I have never been as scare as I was when I encounter this thing that morning back in Feb 1972. Just needed to tell someone. I have never ever mention this to anyone. I thought I had seen a bear but I know what a bear looks like, and was afraid to mention anything for been ridicule and probably be force out of the service. Thank you for this opportunity to tell someone. Pls do not mention my name.PS. I send and earlier msgf but could not finish it so this is part 2 of my story.

Our team web designer Derek Wright forwarded me your Bigfoot sighting report.
I am excited to hear from you & will keep you anonymous as you requested.
We feel these reports are an important tool in learning more about these elusive giants.
I know it was a long time ago & so if you dont recall some of the stuff I ask then I completely understand.
What color was the face & hands?.. What did the face look like? How about the eyes?
Did it make any kind of a vocalization as it knocked you over and retreated?
Did anyone else see or hear anything unusual on your patrol?
Appreciate you taking the time to send us your report.
