The Roswell Incident Confirmed
The extraordinary recovery of fallen airborne objects in the state of New Mexico, between July 4th - 6th 1947: This summary was prepared by Headquarters Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit, Scientific and Technical Branch, Counterintelligence Directorate as requested by the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2 at the expressed order of Chief of Staff. At 11:32 PM MST, 3 July 47, radar stations in east Texas and White Sands Proving Ground (WSPG), New Mexico, tracked two unidentified aircraft until both dropped off radar. Two crash sites have been located close to the WSPG. Landing Zone (LZ) Site LZ-1 was located at a ranch near Corona, approximately 75 miles northwest of the town of Roswell. Site LZ-2 was located approximately 20 miles southeast of the town of Socorro (lat 33-40-31, long 106-28-29) with Oscura Peak being the geographic reference point.
In simple terms: Around July 4th in 1947, two unusual objects fell from the sky were found and collected near a little-known town of Roswell, New Mexico. This summary was created by a special unit that investigates strange phenomena from other planets, under the direction of the military. They were asked to provide this summary by a high-ranking military officer.
The incident is further dramatized by the fact that the location of these crash sites are close to the Trinity Site, where the first atomic bomb test was conducted only two years prior. It’s also interesting to note that near LZ-1 and LZ-2, lies a large volcanic flow which correlates with many UFO incidents and sightings in Oaxaca region in Mexico. Whatever the interest, might the geological or mineral composition of these regions play a role in UFO crashes?
Persons of Interest
The Advanced Survey Team (AST) personnel were mainly interested in LZ-2 as this site contained the majority of structural detail of the craft's airframe, propulsion, and navigation technology. The recovery of five bodies in a damaged escape cylinder, precluded an investigation at LZ-1. On arrival at LZ-2, personnel assessed the finds as not belonging to any aircraft, rocket, weapons, or balloon test that are normally conducted from surrounding bases. First reports indicated that the first crash investigators from Roswell Army Airfield (AAF) the LZ-1 was the remains of a AAF top secret MOGUL balloon project. When scientists from the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory arrived to inspect LZ-2, it became apparent to all concerned that what had crashed in the desert was something out of this world. Interviews with radar operators and officers from the Signal Corps Engineering Laboratories (SCEL), Fort Monmouth, New Jersey who were tracking these objects on-and-off since June 29th from Station 'A', all indicated that these targets had periodically remained stationary for minutes at a time, then would resume their original course, flying from the southeast to northwest. SCEL antennas had locked onto a flight of three objects on July 3rd and lost them around 11:30 PM on July 4th. A V-2 Rocket was scheduled for launch which is why SCEL Station 'A' was able to do a track. It has been learned that at least six radar stations in east Texas (see detailed report in attachment A), and radar stations at Alamogordo AAF and Kirtland AAF, had also picked up these objects on the 4th as well. Using topographical maps and triangularization, a last know position and bearing was calculated which helped search parties to locate the general area. Detachment 3 of the 9393rd Technical Services Unit, assigned to Alamogordo AAF, was responsible for the locating and transportation of the large sections of the craft. A special radiobiological team accompanied by a SED and security detail from Sandia under orders from Colonel Sheridan V. Hasbrouck, Armed Forces Special Weapons Project, secured the immediate area surrounding the crash site. Select scientists from the General Advisory Committee of the Atomic Energy Commission, most notable Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, was identified at LZ-2 as well as other members. Among PAPERCLIP specialists identified at LZ-2 were Dr. Wernher von Braun (Fort Bliss), Dr. Ernst Steinhoff (AMC), and Dr. Hubertus Strughold (Aeromedical Lab, Randolph Field).
In summary, the following people are highly important to get the validity of the story and accurate information. Many of these POIs have already gone on record or shared anecdotes. We should still be diligent as a community to seek out answers and share our findings. We encourage you, reader, to look into these people and also affiliates that you can find on your own related to RAAF, the intelligence community, and even more civilians who may have witnessed aspects of the Roswell events.

The Cover Up
Because of the stringent security measures that were in place at both crash sites, the team was not able to gain access to the several locations where wreckage and bodies were being held. Counterintelligence Corp (CIC) member of the team was able to learn that several bodies were taken to the hospital at Roswell AAF and others to either Los Alamos, Wright Field, Patterson AAF, and Randolph Field for security reasons. It is believed that this dispersion was on the orders of General Thomas Handy, Fourth Army Headquarters. Remains of the power-plant were taken to Alamogordo AAF and Kirtland AAF. Structural debris and assorted parts were taken to AMC, Wright Field. Other remains were transported across the WSPG to the storage facilities of the National Research Laboratory. All of this was accomplished by 5:30 PM MST on July 7th, 1947. On July 7th, Lt General Nathan Twining arrived at Alamogordo AAF for a secret meeting with AAF Chief of Staff Spaatz and to view recovered remains of craft from LZ-2. On July 8th, Twining visited Kirtland AAF to inspect parts recovered from power-plant. On July 9th, Twining and staff flew to WSPG to inspect pieces of craft being stored there and on July 10th, made inspection of R&D facilities at Alamogordo and then returned to Wright Field. It is believed that Twining and staff is preparing a detailed report of both incidents and briefings later to follow. It is also the belief of CIC that General Eisenhower will see a showing of recoveries sometime in late August this year. The President was given a limited briefing at the Pentagon by AC/S AAF General Hoyt Vandenburg on July 10th. FBI interest was curtailed and access to stored craft at Los Alamos was denied upon request of Deputy COS Lt. General Collins. Inquiries to bases involved was restricted by General Vandenberg during the duration of recovery efforts. All teletype, telephone, and radio transmissions were monitored for any disclosures of the finds. To maintain secrecy of the site LZ-2, the CO of Roswell AAF was authorized to give a brief press release to local paper in which 8th AF Headquarters promptly denied rumors that the Army had flying saucers in their possession which effectively killed press interest. Civilians who might have seen or handled some of the wreckage, or viewed bodies, were detained under the McNab law until all remaining evidence was secured in restricted bases. Witnesses were debriefed by CIC and warned of the consequences of talking to the press. So far, secrecy seems to be working. All civilian and military personnel involved with the recovery operations had "need to know" access with proper security clearances. Though several MPs suffered nervous breakdowns resulting in one committing suicide, MP details from Alamogordo and Kirtland performed security functions very well. Ground personnel from Sandia experienced some form of contamination resulting in the deaths of three technicians. The status of the fourth fourth technician is unknown. Autopsies are scheduled to determine the cause of death. CIC has made appropriate security file entries into dossiers with cross references for future reviews. With the pending approval of James Forrestal as new Secretary of Defense, it is certain that he will be briefed on certain aspects of the discoveries. The only Cabinet member to date that may know of the details is Secretary of State Marshall. It has become known to CIC that some of the recovery option was shared with Representative John F. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat elected to Congress in 1946. Son of Joseph P. Kennedy, Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government. Kennedy had limited duty as a naval officer assigned to Naval Intelligence during war. It is believed that information was obtained from source in Congress who is close to Secretary for Air Force.
The text suggests that bodies and wreckage were taken to various locations for security reasons. This decision seems to be one of the primary reasons that the incident leaked despite all of the efforts for secrecy. So why were the assets moved to so many various locations? Some theorize that they were sent to areas that had the highest specialties. Others feel like it was an intentional move to expose as many military personnel to the incident as possible. What do you think?
As to the bodies recovered at LZ-2, it appeared that none of the five crew members survived entry into our atmosphere due to unknown causes. Dr Detlev Bronk has been asked to assist in the autopsy of one well preserved cadaver to be done by Major Charles B. Rex. From what descriptions the team was able to learn and from photographs taken by G-2 intelligence photographers, the occupants appear in most respects human with some anatomical differences in the head, eyes, hands, and feet. The have a slight build about five feet tall, with grayish-pink skin color. The have no hair on their bodies and clothed with a tight fitting flight suit that appears to be fire proof (some of the bodies looked as if they had been burned on head and hands). Their overall stature reminds one of young children. It is believed that there were male and female genders present, but was hard to distinguish. The most disturbing aspect of this investigation was—there were other bodies found not far from LZ-1 that looked as if they had been dissected as you would a frog. It is not known if army field surgeons had performed exploratory surgery on these bodies. Animal parts were reportedly discovered inside the craft at LZ-2 but this cannot be confirmed. The team has reserved judgement on this issue. Our assessment of this investigation rests on two assumptions: 1) Either this discovery was an elaborate and well orchestrated hoax (maybe by the Russians), or 2) Our country has played host to beings form another planet. Until more data can be acquired from other intelligence sources, it is the opinion of the team, that the investigation be expanded to include sources that might elucidate other possibilities not found by contemporary science. It is also recommended that appropriate budgets be allocated to facilitate future assignments that the unit may be called upon to perform. Until further orders, this investigation will continue.
