David Morehouse's military accomplishments include being selected as the top cadet commissioned into the regular Army in 1979-from over 2,500 cadets. He served as aide-de-camp for two Commanding Generals, commanded the Army's only separate Airborne Rifle Company, as well as an elite Airborne Ranger Company. He was second in command of the 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, and is highly decorated with numerous Defense, Joint, and Army commendations. He is a special operations infantryman whose combat special skills include the Master Parachutist Badge, Underwater Operations, Pathfinder Badge, and the coveted Ranger Tab. He has been awarded jump wings from six foreign nations.
He holds a masters degree in Military Arts and Science from the US Army's Command and General Staff College, and a doctorate in Education from LaSalle University. He writes and lectures on issues of global peace, and is the author of Nonlethal Weapons: War Without Death, published by Praeger Press. He was most recently invited to attend the Mikhail Gorbachev Foundation's 1995 State of the World Forum, where he served as a speaker and panel member for issues surrounding new approaches to conflict resolution in the coming millennium.
About a year ago, the media reported that the Pentagon had been training and using psychic spies, operatives who garnered information through "remote viewing." According to Morehouse, the media reports arose from a disinformation campaign conducted by the CIA in cooperation with the Defense Intelligence Agency. Here, Morehouse, a former highly decorated army officer?and psychic spy in the Star Gate program?purports to tell the real story and his role in it. Morehouse, we learn, became a psychic literally by accident. He was serving with the infantry in Jordan when he was knocked out by a stray bullet that hit his helmet; afterward, he saw strange visions and experienced out-of-body episodes. Instead of recommending psychiatric treatment, the army placed Morehouse in a top secret program in which agents psychically travel to far-flung sites to "view" prisons, airplane-crash locations and the like. Morehouse's descriptions of his psychic trips are the strength of this book. Most combine mystery and suspense so skillfully that he makes perfectly believable the notion that he "visited" a friend who had been killed in an air crash. But some of his "trips," such as the time-warp call at the burial site of the lost Ark of the Covenant, seem less authentic, though they're equally entertaining. For all the detail in his recounting of his remote-viewing incidents, Morehouse's narrative leaves gaps and unanswered questions, including exactly how the viewing process works, and the Star Gate program's exact provenance. Readers may need to do some remote viewing of their own to fill in the blanks, but overall this is a dramatic tale told with flair. Photos not seen by PW.
