Or he was fabricating an excuse why he slept overnight in the woods (or
spent it stoning out) when he was supposed to be on duty. If the brass
decides there is a real security threat, then you were simply a victim
of enemy action. If they decide you are just mental, they go easier on
you than if you were just being derilict. Claiming a UFO encounter would
trigger either a paranoid security response, or a section 8 evaluation
before charges of dereliction.
