>> A Discussion With Col. Jesse Marcel Jr.
>> by Thomas Horn
>> Editors note: This is the second in a special series of Raiders
>> NewsNetwork.com interviews focusing on the 60th Anniversary of the
>> 1947 Roswell, New Mexico UFO Incident. Tom Horn is joined by Col.
>> Jesse Marcel Jr., whose highly anticipated new book "The Roswell
>> Legacy," is being released at the Roswell Festival this year (July
>> 5-8 http://www.roswellufofestival.com/
>> <http://www.roswellufofestival.com/>). Col. Marcel's book claims that
>> the famous UFO event near the city actually occurred, including the
>> recovery of an extraterrestrial craft. Col. Marcel's father, Maj.
>> Jesse Marcel Sr. was the lead military investigator into the crash of
>> 1947 and is finally vindicated according to this book.
>> HORN: Col. Marcel, it is so good to speak with you again. Thank you
>> for taking time to talk to us about Roswell and your new book. You
>> will be speaking and on some panels at Roswell this year. One
>> question or correction. I note in the past we had the title of your
>> book as "Roswell: It Really Happened", but I see it advertised
>> elsewhere now as "The Roswell Legacy". Has the book title been changed?
>> MARCEL: The book has evolved with time. As I was writing it, I
>> realized that Legacy was more appropriate than what really happened.
>> The title of the book is "The Roswell Legacy."
>> HORN: This is the 60th anniversary. Does it feel that long ago to you?
>> MARCEL: It is hard to believe that 60 years have passed on the
>> calendar. It seems like yesterday to me to use a cliché'.
>> HORN: As the only man alive who the government admits handled
>> material from the debris field in 1947, material your dad let you and
>> your mother see as he stopped off at home on his way back to the
>> base, how did that night effect you. It changed the course of UFOlogy
>> and put Roswell and your family on the map.
>> MARCEL: It was then that I realized that our civilization was not
>> alone certainly in the galaxy and that we were in fact being visited
>> by others more advanced because they could get here from where ever
>> they come from. I took it to mean that we were being studied from a
>> scientifically curious race just as we would be curious about other
>> life forms on our planet.
>> HORN: Col. Blanchard authorized a press release saying the military
>> had recovered a flying disc. I assume he had some facts about what
>> was recovered before he allowed the press release.
>> MARCEL: Certainly he had been briefed by my dad as to the true nature
>> of the debris and that it represented an artifact from elsewhere
>> which went along with all of the unusual sightings seen in the skies
>> at that time.
>> HORN: Your father was ordered to load the debris onto a B-29 which
>> was then flown to Wright Field and that is where General Roger Ramey
>> took over. Correct.
>> MARCEL: He took a small representative portion of the debris for
>> General Ramey's inspection and I am convinced that he realized that
>> this was too big of a story to be unleashed on the public at that time.
>> HORN: What happened then?
>> MARCEL: My dad was told to participate in the cover story. And when
>> he came home he sat my mother and myself down and said in no
>> uncertain terms that we were never to discuss what we had seen. I
>> later recalled him stating that he was part of the cover up.
>> HORN: Let me ask something more personal. What was your dad's
>> qualifications to evaluate a crash site?
>> MARCEL: He was the intelligence officer for the 509th and had
>> training in aircraft accident investigation and in addition he had
>> gone to radar school so he was familiar with the types of radar
>> targets used on weather balloons etc. He was a natural to have been
>> sent out on the initial investigation of the debris.
>> HORN: The material your dad brought home. Tell us what you saw.
>> MARCEL: He had pre-positioned the debris on the kitchen floor so my
>> mother and I could realize the unusual nature of the debris. What we
>> saw was something certainly different from mundane material. I have
>> described the debris itself many times so I don't know if you want
>> that repeated here.
>> [EDITOR'S NOTE: Jesse Marcel Jr.?s first published recollections of
>> the debris was that they were composed of: "...foil-like stuff, very
>> thin, metallic-like but not metal, and very tough. There was also
>> some structural-like material too - beams and so on. Also a quantity
>> of black plastic material which looked organic in nature...Imprinted
>> along the edge of some of the beam remnants there were
>> hieroglyphic-type characters. I recently questioned my father about
>> this, and he recalled seeing these characters also and even described
>> them as being a pink or purplish-pink color. Egyptian hieroglyphics
>> would be a close visual description of the characters seen, except I
>> don't think there were any animal figures present as there are in
>> true Egyptian hieroglyphics," (Berlitz, Charles and William Moore.
>> The Roswell Incident. New York: Berkley, 1988, pgs 78-80]
>> HORN: You are a military man too. Have you ever saw anything that
>> matches those materials?
>> MARCEL: As a flight surgeon, I was trained myself in aircraft
>> accident investigations and have never seen anything that would match
>> the debris.
>> HORN: What about the theory that this was a Mogul balloon?
>> MARCEL: A balloon is a balloon and the Mogul balloon had a classified
>> mission, but it used off the shelf materials that was not unique.
>> HORN: Did you ever see the movie "Roswell"? Were you and the other
>> events portrayed accurately in it?
>> MARCEL: For the most part it reflected what happened, there was of
>> course some poetic license in depicting the event.
>> HORN: Last year in McMinnville you told me an interesting story about
>> a trip to Washington where you wound up in the dungeons of the
>> Capital building talking to somebody I believe was later identified
>> as Dick D'Amato, an aide to Sen. Robert Byrd, who wanted to know
>> where the Roswell UFO debris were. Tell us that story.
>> MARCEL: It was there that I was told that the event was not fiction.
>> I don't know if you want me to go into the story again as I have
>> related it many times. I am sorry that Mr. D'Amato's name came out
>> because hopefully this would not cause any difficulties for him.
>> [EDITOR'S NOTE: To this day Jesse Marcel doesn't know how the
>> participants in DC knew where he would be at that particular time.
>> When he arrived at his motel, there was a message waiting for him on
>> the phone in his room. It was from Dick D'Amato. He wanted to meet
>> with Marcel the following day at 1:PM in a certain room at the
>> Capital building. Marcel felt uneasy, but agreed to go to the
>> meeting. On arrival, he was ushered into D'Amato's office, who got
>> right down to business. He wanted to talk to Marcel about Roswell,
>> and he asked if Jess would be more comfortable "in a secure room."
>> When Marcel explained that he wouldn't be saying anything he hadn't
>> said before, D'Amato pressed the idea of the alternate meeting area,
>> explaining, "Well, maybe I want to tell you something you don't
>> already know."
>> Leaving the office, they proceeded to the secure room where no
>> listening devices existed, in an area Jess described as "the dungeons
>> of the Capital building." They sat at a table where Marcel noticed a
>> book about Alien Abductions, UFO technology and Roswell. D'Amato
>> tapped on the book with his finger and said outright, "This is not
>> fiction." He continued talking for a while and then asked Marcel if
>> he knew where the material recovered from the Roswell ranch was being
>> kept. Jesse found the question curious and said, "No. Don't you?"
>> D'Amato's answer was as enigmatic as the question, so Marcel
>> responded with a inquiry of his own: "If extraterrestrial activity is
>> real, and you guys know it, when is the government planning Official
>> Disclosure of what really happened at Roswell?" D'Amato said, "If it
>> was up to me, we'd be doing it now" (as told to Tom Horn by Jesse
>> Marcel Jr. in a 2006 interview. At that time, Jesse did not use Mr.
>> D'Amato's name)].
>> HORN: I know that you are a spiritual man. How do you reconcile the
>> idea of intelligent life somewhere else in the universe with your
>> personal faith?
>> MARCEL: It strengthened my faith in God because His Creation is
>> greater than anyone realized by populating the Universe with many
>> different civilizations.
>> HORN: A lot of people are saying we are getting close to an official
>> disclosure event from either the US Government or maybe the United
>> Nations concerning some evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence.
>> Other people point to the discovery of extra solar planets like
>> Gliese 581 that was found recently that might be able to sustain
>> life. What can you tell us, or what do you suspect, with regard to
>> official disclosure?
>> MARCEL: It just confirms what I already new. It is only a question of
>> time before a radio signal will be picked up by the SETI team and
>> that will probably be the catalyst for our government to make the big
>> HORN: Any surprises in this new book?
>> MARCEL: It confirms the qualifications of my dad and proves he was
>> who he was and that he knew what he was talking about.
>> HORN Where can people get a copy of your new book?
>> MARCEL: We plan on releasing it at Roswell for the 60th anniversary
>> of the event.
>> HORN: Thanks Jess for talking to us again. I'll be in Roswell this
>> year and hope to see you again.
