W. McMoneagle was born January
10, 1946, in Miami, Florida. He voluntarily joined the U.S. Army
and was recruited by the Army Security Agency for classified assignments.
He spent mid-1964 through 1978 on various overseas missions within
the countries of The Bahamas, South Vietnam, Germany, Italy, Thailand,
and others, eventually being assigned to the Headquarters of U.S.
Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) in Arlington, Virginia.
As a result of many unusual events
in his life, a near-death experience, a UFO sighting, and numerous
spontaneous out-of-body episodes, he was one of the original Intelligence
Officers recruited for the Army program now known as STAR GATE.
While there, he earned a Legion of Merit award for providing "...critical
intelligence reported at the highest echelons of our military and
government, including such national level agencies as; The Joint
Chiefs of Staff, DIA, NSA, CIA, DEA, and the Secret Service, producing
crucial and vital intelligence unavailable from any other source."
Following his retirement from the
Army in 1984, he maintained his association with the STAR GATE program
through his own company, Intuitive Intelligence Applications, working
as a remote viewing consultant to the Cognitive Sciences Laboratories
at SRI-International and Science Applications International Corporation
until the program was formally closed in November of 1995.
Joe is currently a Research Associate
with the Laboratories for Fundamental Research in Palo Alto, where
he continues to research and explore for more effective answers
to questions concerning the applications of remote viewing, its
underlying mechanisms, and within the field of the paranormal.
He has successfully demonstrated
remote viewing within acceptable protocols, live and on camera,
in numerous network broadcasts shown in America and England; the
most notable being, "Put To The Test" an ABC Special, and for the
"Reader's Digest Mysteries of the Unexplained, Powers of the Paranormal,"
video series. He is now acknowledged as one of the best remote viewers
in the field.
