This was a UFO sighting by a military formation at Ft Polk, Lousiana in 1967.

I had just ended my advanced infantry training at Fort Polk in November 1967 and was about to be deployed to an infantry unit in Vietnam. Several training companies were in morning formation on our company street just before dawn.

A craft of some sort suddenly appeared at one end of the street above our formations. It was large, more than the width of the 50 foot wide street, but a number of lights on the bottom focused on the troops prevented me from seeing the exact shape of the craft.

It moved like a helicopter slowly down the street about 50-100 feet above us but IT MADE NO SOUND. When it reached the end of the street it just shot away and again made no sound.

No official mention was made of the incident and it was never even discussed.
