John Stormm on Peter Parker

This is a note written to me by a first generation MK Ultra Named John Stormm. It is about our mutual acquaintance Peter Parker. I only remember meeting him a hand full of times for short periods but Stormm served with him in the military.

"Parker, in his own way, was a hard character not to like. I think the comic book version, missed a great role example for a young black man. But they were looking for an "anti-hero", and that's what they settled on. The one significant thing I can tell you about Parker, is because we were in the same place, at the same time. We ended up in the Summer of 1970, in the U.S.Navy (me trying to escape MKULTRA), he became the "Squad Leader" for Company 305, and I was about 4-5 bunks down from him, on the same side of the barracks for MOST of that time. Yes, he WAS an exraordinary acrobat/athlete. He could beat my time throught the Concentration Course, EVERY time... and I could power through it like no human could. But he had this deep smile and humble attitude that just won everybody over... He practically fell into being first bunk there. I was getting pulled constantly for a LOT of medical treatments and such. Navy turned out WORSE for all of that than MKULTRA was. Eventually Co.305, 11th Battalion, Great Lakes Naval Base, Fall of 1970, Capt. F.M. Simons, C.O. and I got dropped downstairs to train with UDT 6, as Parker and our guys graduated, carrying a LOT of colors and honors. My record as an ULTRA and all was burned by Richard Helms, in 1973. I don't know where Parker went after then. But I can swear on a dozen Bibles that in REAL life: Johnny Stormm and Peter Parker were hanging together in the same place for a few months together. And we BOTH knew, more or less, how far and above we were, to the hardest case Marine Brig Guard than anyone else was. I was certainly the less likable of the two of us them. I think he's a year or two older than I. I, like ALL the rest of another 80 guys in that company, not only liked, but admired the Peter Parker we met there. Most were probably feeling safer after I left. But Parker spotted me with my sister, doing interviews at a Shrine Circus in New York (I was still an active ULTRA), and remembered me, did a cute kind of kip-up that stuck him on the ceiling over my head, and kicked me a couple times in the face (not hard, a comic "bitch slap") and I spent the next couple hours hanging out and catching up. I knew he had work, and he was playing the costumed Spiderman at this circus (very well), But people like us don't just get used i small time scenarios, but you also learn better than to ever ask too much. But he didn't seem to have a hard time trusting me, and I always felt treated well, even when he disagreed with me, That's my over all impression of Parker, from my own point of view of those times." - John Stormm
