Roswell Information continues
after 60 years

The 60th anniversary of the Roswell Incident is now history and was a gigantic improvement over those in recent years, partially due to the number of credible researchers that were in Roswell for the Festival sharing their knowledge not only about the Roswell Incident, but various other topics related to Ufology. The attendance for this year’s 4-day event was comparable to the 50th anniversary in 1997, when 40,000 visitors attended. With the city of Roswell taking over the Festival this year, the Mayor’s desire to have a family oriented celebration along with serious UFO researchers appears to have been a success.

New information about the Roswell Incident was revealed in the form of three new books that were published and made available in conjunction with the event. Perhaps those books will have an impact on the fact that we continue to be lied to by the military and our government about what happened here in 1947, and I believe the pressure is mounting on them to come clean. (Wishful thinking on my part? —probably so, but I remain optimistic.)

Jesse Marcel Jr., who I first met in 1997, remains as one of the most credible first-hand witnesses, still alive that I’ve ever known. His own 30 + year military background, honesty and sincerity in addition to his profession’s as a medical doctor, helicopter pilot, etc., speak volumes about him. Now after all these years, Jesse has decided to go public in book form to fulfill a request by his father, before he passed away, revealing his story about his own involvement in 1947 as the 11 year son of then Intelligence officer of the 509th bomb wing, Major Jesse Marcel. Jesse Jr. not only shares his own thoughts and factual knowledge, but his wife does also, making the book a personal account of a family that has dealt with the Roswell Incident first hand these 60 years. The book entitled “the Roswell Legacy” should be required reading for anyone wanting information about the Roswell Incident from a first-hand account.
