In early July 1947, something crashed in the high desert
outside of Roswell, New Mexico. Sheep rancher Mac Brazel
discovered some strange metallic debris on his land. Not
knowing what it was he eventually took some of this debris
into Roswell and reported it to the Sheriff's Office. They
in turn contacted Roswell Army Air Force who housed the
509th Bomb Wing, the only atomic bomb wing in the world
at that time. RAAF dispatched two men to Roswell to look
at his strange debris. One of these was base intelligence
officer Major Jesse Marcel.
On October 24th, 2007, Philip Mantle interviewed Dr. Marcel,
son of Major Marcel, about his recollections of the incident
at Roswell in 1947.
