Journal: How did you come to join MUFON?
Uriarte: I was very motivated to join MUFON after reading two significant books, Communion by Whitley Strieber and Missing Time by Budd Hopkins. The authors mentioned MUFON throughout their books and this intrigued me to attend a local MUFON meeting in the San Jose area in Northern California. I had met a number of interesting people that inspired me to become a MUFON member. I have been a member of MUFON since 1989 as a Field Investigator, and currently am also on the International Team with David MacDonald, Director of International Development and Chuck Reever, MUFON International Director of Investigations.
