In 1986, on his death bed, retired Major Jesse Marcel told his son; "You must tell the world the truth about Roswell. When the military no longer has a hold over you and your family, please set the record straight!"Major Jesse Marcel was the head of intelligence at an Army Air Field located at Roswell, Nevada. On July 7, 1947 Major Marcel was sent to inspect what was being reported as the crash of an unidentified object on a ranch seventy-five miles northwest of the base.After inspecting the crash site, Marcel stopped by his home to show his family what he had discovered. Jesse Jr. was only eleven years old at the time, but vividly remembers his father's excitement,and seeing and handling a foil-like material that his father said was scattered around the wreckage.
It was shiny
and paper thin, but could not be torn or cut.
It also retained a
memory, mysteriously unfolding each time his father tried to fold it.
And then there was that beam of metal several feet long, which was
covered with hieroglyphic-type writing and markings. It was indeed
something that was not of this world.
Upon return to his Air
base, Major Marcel's superior officer, Col. William "Butch" Blanchard,
ordered him to fly the material to Wright Patterson Air Base in Akron,
OH, first stopping in Fort Worth, TX to show the strange findings to
Gen. Roger Ramey,,the head of the Eighth Air Force. When Ramey learned
that Blanchard had issued a press release stating they had recovered a
"flying disc," and that it was being flown toWright-Pat, Ramey was
livid, and immediately called a press conference. Marcel would be
photographed (see photo right) holding remnants of a weather balloon,
and was forced to tell the media that these were his only findings at
Roswell. From that time on, and despite dozens of collaborating
witnesses at the crash site, Major Marcel was forced to live with that
lie the rest of his life.
His father's words haunted
Jesse Jr. for nearly twenty years. As his retirement finally
approached, while serving his tour of duty in Iraq in 2004, Jesse Jr.
decided to put pen to paper. In a few short months the U.S. Military
could no longer force he and his family to keep the secret any longer.
He remembered how embarrassed his father was when he was forced to tell
the world that the object he inspected was only a weather balloon. The
famous photo of his father (see right), kneeling and......

Aft...Why ET did not retrieve at Roswell
Anthony Bragalia : Many who wonder about the Roswell crash wonder why ET did not retrieve its own craft and crew. How can we fathom that they left their own on the desert floor? This is a question that has an answer, though we have no obligation to provide one. This is because the Alien Intent can never be fully discerned with any certainty. But we can try. There are seven possible scenarios- one of which may well have played out in July of 1947 over the skies of Chaves and Lincoln Counties: 1) ...Was the Roswell evidence switched ?
Kevin Randle: Cruising the blogoshpere the other day, I happened on a site that told me that the Roswell case was basically over and for proof offered the fact that the debris in General Ramey’s (that is Brigadier General Roger Ramey, at the time the commander of the Eighth Air Force) office had not been switched. This was based on an interview that Jaime Shandera had conducted with Colonel Thomas DuBose. For a little background, let’s review. In July 1947, seven pictures were taken in Ramey’s o...Ralph A.

Multer said he and twoother drivers were asked to pick up loads at a railroad yard. Three flatbed trucks, covered withcanvas, carried the loads. . The load on Multer’s truck was the larg...The Roswell concealment
Anthony Bragalia: How can the secret of Roswell be kept? Those doubting the Roswell crash doubt that it could ever be concealed over such a long time. Government is not capable enough to veil such a thing from the governed. They argue that the cover-up would be too vast and too difficult to be effective. And they are wrong. The ability of government -and the private sector- to maintain extreme secrecy over an extended time is well established. This secrecy has been effective on many different le...The final secrets of Roswells memory metal
Anthony Bragalia takes a final look at the secrets behind the "memory metal" material based on the recovery of debris at the alleged UFO crash at Roswell in 1947. What is the true meaning behind this mysterious material ?"Was the Roswellmemory metal secretly "seeded" to industry and to others who could exploit its potential benefits?

Not only is it feasible to build an alien-themed amusement park in Roswell, a city official said, it’s the only city where such a park could work. Zach Montgomery, planning director for the city of Roswell, said New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Business Center did the feasibility study on the possibility of locating an alien theme park in Roswell. Because of the worldwide recognition of Roswell for aliens, he said, it was much more viable in the area. “This is not a guaranteed project, bu...
