There are so many people over the past 10 years who have contributed to this work that even a partial listing would itself be a book. I would like to thank the thousands of CSETI supporters around the world for their help, networking and dedication, without which this project could never have been created and fulfilled.

I especially wish to thank my wife Emily and our four daughters for their love, dedication and support for these many years. Emily has worked tirelessly behind the scenes for years and always in the most self-effacing and pure-hearted way. There is just no one like her on this planet. Thank you, thank you.

My family has also sacrificed in many other ways – They have foregone several million dollars in income while I have been doing this work and they have, in many ways, sacrificed the most. I started this project, not them. How many doctor’s wives would patiently support such an effort? But knowing what the stakes are for humanity, how could we do otherwise? Without the unconditional love and support of my family this undertaking could not have even been contemplated.

The list that follows can only be a partial one. It reflects the hard work and dedication of so many and we are indebted to them all. Special thanks go to all of the military and government witnesses and to my chief assistants, Linda Willitts on the west coast and Debbie Foch in the DC area.
