Not long after graduating from high school, Christopher Bartel joined the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1997.
There, he served on active duty for nine years with the USAF Security Forces. During that time, Bartel was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, NV, with two deployments to Saudi Arabia in 1999 and 2002. Later, he went on to become a cadre instructor for the Ground Combat Training Squadron at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, NV. After being honorably discharged from military service, Bartel was hired as a Security Police Officer by the Nevada National Security Site (also known as the Nevada Test Site). The skills and experiences he acquired in the military made him a valuable asset to the BAASS security team given the nature and scope of their DIA contract.
When he first deployed to Skinwalker Ranch in October 2010, he did not know much about the property, its past history, or the true nature of US government involvement in the site. For Bartel, it was merely an assignment, like many others in the past, and he adhered strictly to the guidelines and protocols set forth by his employer. Interestingly, an unconventional aspect of his job did require him to try and tap into his surroundings and establish contact with “the unknown.”
