Product description

Product Description

For half a century, his family and friends never knew he worked on special projects at Area 51 for the CIA. Barnes, an Area 51 and Cold War veteran tells what brought him from a desolate childhood on a remote ranch in the West Texas Panhandle, and through an Army career to Area 51 to serve the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology.
Soaring with the Eagles is a story about how the Central Intelligence Agency selected him during the Cold War while recruiting high achievers into its new Directorate of Science and Technology on station at Area 51.
Only since the CIA recently declassified how it secretly formed Area 51 can renown Area 51 veteran, TD Barnes publish his autobiography, Soaring with the Eagles. Barnes provides an exciting account of his career of secrecy, secrets that his family endured and supported for half a century while not knowing where he worked, what he did, or for whom. Barnes shares the family sacrifices and achievements along the way. All they knew was that with him, they soared with eagles, be it military, with NASA, in his intelligence career, and in private business.

About the Author

Thornton D. "TD" Barnes, author and entrepreneur, grew up on a ranch at Dalhart, Texas. He graduated from Mountain View High School in Oklahoma and embarked on a ten-year military career. He served as an Army intelligence specialist in Korea and then continued his education while in the US Army, attending two and a half years of missile and radar electronics by day and college courses at night. Barnes deployed with the first combat Hawk missile battalion during the Soviet Iron Curtain threat before attending the Artillery Officer Candidate School, where an injury ended his military career. During his extensive professional career, Barnes was a field engineer at the NASA High Range in Nevada for the X-15, XB-70, lifting bodies and lunar landing vehicles; working on the NERVA project at Jackass Flats, Nevada. He was a member of a special projects team at Area 51 for the Central Intelligence Agency. Barnes later formed a family oil and gas exploration company, drilling and producing oil and gas and mining uranium and gold. Barnes is currently the CEO of Startel, Inc., a landowner, and is actively mining a quarry for landscape rock and gold in Nevada. He is the president of Roadrunners Internationale, an association of Area 51 veterans, and is the executive director of the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame. Two National Geographic Channel documentaries feature Barnes: Area 51 Declassified and CIA-Secrets of Area 51. Numerous documentaries on the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel and others also feature him. The Annie Jacobsen book Area 51 Declassified documents his career. Barnes lives in Henderson, Nevada.
