anniversary of the Roswell Incident is fast approaching. In 1947 a
strange object crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. The first press
release by the Roswell Air Base was that a flying disc had crashed and
it was later recovered by our U.S. Army Air Corps. They
backtracked a few hours later and stated it was only a weather balloon.
It was a description similar to the weather balloon recovered near
Circleville, just a few days earlier. The Circleville story was
carried nationwide by the Associated Press. It is accepted that
this is where the cover story originated. Circleville is mentioned
in some of the Roswell books.
Over the years, I have heard stories of alien bodies
being stored at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. I have
had several second-hand reports from witnesses confirming this.
Some of these were from my good friend Len Stringfield of Cincinnati,
who was our country's top civilian UFO crash researcher at the time.
Bill Richardson, present Governor of New Mexico, states
"the mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained
— not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government."
Dick Chaney, our Vice-President, has publicly stated
that if he is or ever has been briefed about UFOs, it surely would be
classified and therefore he would not be at liberty to discuss it.
Before he passed away, Congressman Steven Schiff from
New Mexico accused the U.S. Air Force of a massive cover up regarding
the Roswell Incident.
In 1993, the Government Accounting Office (GAO)
discovered that all documents covering the Roswell Incident had been
destroyed years before without explanation or apparent authority.
There can be no innocent explanation for this.
New testimony has came out about this 60 year-old
event. A new book titled, "Witness to Roswell," is authored by
Donald Schmitt and Thomas Carey. During the course of Schmitt and
Carey's investigation they amassed a growing roster of more than 600
people directly or indirectly associated with the events of Roswell who
support the initial claim of a flying saucer recovery.
Former Secretary of the Air Force, Sheila E. Widnall,
under President Bill Clinton, issued an order in 1994 freeing a former
servicemen of any secrecy restrictions that may have prevented them from
talking about what they knew about the 1947 Roswell Incident. No
longer would they have to fear recrimination, loss of pension, or even
prison for violating any "oath of secrecy" forced upon them by the
military long ago. This action expanded the potential witness
pool. Schmitt and Carey seized the opportunity and thus have
gained testimony from many older servicemen who had not spoken about
A growing number of military and civilian witnesses are
providing deathbed testimony, all admissible in a court of law,
confessing to direct knowledge about "non-human" bodies recovered at
Roswell in 1947. Some of these witnesses state that there was
indeed a survivor of the crash. Many witnesses never talked
publicly about their part in Roswell. The information from some
was released after their death.
The Personnel Information Officer at the Roswell Air
Base in 1947 was Walter Haut. He had been a greeter at the local
Roswell Museum for years. He is the one who gave the press release
in 1947 about recovering the "flying disc" and then later retracted it.
has since passed away. Upon his death a sealed affidavit was given
for the historic record. In his affidavit he states that he also
saw the wreckage of the object and the bodies in the hangar at the
Roswell Air Base.
Jon Fry, our chief researcher, loaned me this book. His book review will
appear on our website,
highly recommend this book for the ones who are interested in the
Roswell Incident. I intend on getting my own.
We have monthly meetings at the Circleville Library on
the second Thursday of each month, which is open to the public. We
discuss the latest events and past history of ufology.
