From strange occurrences including unusual spikes in radiation and evidence of mysterious underground structures to inexplicable equipment failures and numerous UAP sightings caught on camera, this 512-acre property located in Utah’s Uinta Basin personifies why truth is often much stranger than fiction.

WATM: Good afternoon, sir. Welcome back to We Are the Mighty. We are very excited to have you back with us!

BRANDON: A lot has transpired since we last talked. It’s a privilege to reconnect with you and bring you up to speed and just answer any questions you have and brief you on what we have planned to a degree. So, thank you for catching in.

WATM: Outstanding! Thank you so much, let’s dive right in. You employ veterans on your staff. How has their military background aided you in your search for the truth?

BRANDON: The role of our team members has proven to be an invaluable and strengthening aspect of our investigation. For example, a retired marine, Kayla Bech, helps direct all security efforts, has often reflected on his military experience as a guiding force. With respect to how he conducts himself and responds to potential threats and challenging situations on the ranch.

WATM: This season looks like it’s gonna be more intense than the last. Everyday you’re making progress at the the ranch. What is the biggest difference you’ve felt since season 1?

BRANDON: The addition of more surveillance systems and scientific devices deployed than ever before. For example, surveillance cameras with night-vision capability and audio sensors positioned strategically across the property. In addition, we have calibrated clear cameras that has been utilized to help us understand changes in the environment that may accompany events and strange phenomenon. We have also been utilizing military grade drone technology and other systems to better document the air space on the ranch.

WATM: Okay, outstanding. In past and present seasons, the government has been looking into the ranch. How has the government’s continued interest in the ranch affected your teams’ operations?

BRANDON: Good question. There’s strong evidence that the government maintains a very high level of interest in the ranch. Even monitoring our day-to-day investigations. We look forward to the first episode of the new season. We look forward to this season. Entrusting, I would say we look forward to entrusting a common interest. Yeah, that’s a more dynamic way.

WATM: Logistics are the cornerstone of military operation on the battlefield. However, logistics on the civilian side are just as complex. What are some things the audience doesn’t consider when embarking on the path you have gone down. 

BRANDON: In maintaining a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach with our investigation that involves former active military and even some law enforcement in logistics involved requires these sources have a wide range of skills in order to best engage the phenomenon. 

WATM: Is there anything you would like to say to the military audience?

BRANDON: Yeah. We honor and support you and appreciate your service. Having those who have served involved with our program and investigation has been a great benefit and continues to advance our investigation.

We believe that our program can change to present the most compelling evidence that we are not alone, that our airspace is been monitored, and that our reality is much more complex than is seen.  Using scientific rigor and discipline to better complement and monitor this activity is hallmark of our investigation. Get ready for more to be revealed and discovered in the weeks ahead.

WATM: Okay, great! Thank you so much, Brandon. I appreciate your time and thank you for speaking with us at We Are The Mighty and we look forward to all the next seasons that are gonna come out.

BRANDON: Thank you for your service and thank you for protecting our way of life. We don’t take it lightly and I truly believe we live in the greatest country in history of the world.

I mean there is so much going on. We are using my helicopter, putting my helicopter in service to better document what is happening and all sort of new technology, rockets…. you name it, drones that are been deployed. I think we are truly conducting the greatest scientific investigation of our time. We have utilized our new airbus 8130 helicopter more than ever before which includes military grade night vision and the most advanced avionics system in a civilian helicopter setting. In addition, the drone technologies utilized and showcased on our program represents some of the most advanced available today.

We sometime receive a little bit of criticism for this but we also believe in being at the ready at all times. Being at the ready no matter what the potential threat may be does require that our security professionals have licensed arms and security licenses. I think its important to note that our security team is properly armed in order to protect the participants even though they acknowledge that they are dealing with unusual and unknown forces.

WATM: Absolutely, and I think almost every veteran will agree that being properly armed in the wilderness especially where there is a real potential of danger is paramount.

BRANDON: Yeah. Being prepared armed and at the ready given the risks and the history involved in this property is critical and you can insert that into our write up if you wish. Not only is it 100% true but I think your audience will appreciate our level of focus and priority on those types of details.
