I do wonder what else was in the boxes alongside the one labelled 'Roswell'???

from the link:
It was a vaulted area and not everybody could get in it," Brandon told The Huffington Post. "One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles that were mostly hand-scribbled summations of what was in the boxes. And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: Roswell.
"I took the box down, lifted the lid up, rummaged around inside it, put the box back on the shelf and said, 'My god, it really happened!'"

it kind of bugs me that the folder containing probably the most important information of any lifetime is in a hand written box next to some others....OR were some of the other boxes just as important?

I agree.  Hardly seems likely that Roswell evidence was kept unsecured.

I would have looked in all the other boxes, or at least as many as I could, but I'm nosy.  For all I know they were testing his skills as an intelligence officer, to see if he would take the initiative and gather as much information as he could before getting caught.

Well, seems to me that unless the Government chooses to make all files on Roswell made available to the News-Media, *and* waives the secrecy act for all the personnel who have information, Roswell will continue to remain in the Conspiracy Category.

Hey McG, yeah I would have gone through the lot also. I would have swapped the good stuff with some run of the mill box.....a week later I would have booked out the 'run of the mill' box for research   :)

maybe the boxes next to it had the documents and pictures you were shown from 1950's, this would at least explain why it wasnt on its own as the most important box.

As the largest branch of the military and the senior service, the Army would have insisted on getting its share of all information related to UFOs, particularly if something crashed or was otherwise on the ground for some reason.  From what i saw, there were able to get quite a bit of information in the contacts with the other services and the intelligence agencies, and if something did crash, the Army had to have been notified.  It would have been extremely upset if it had not been made aware of something that important.

I think the world would be surprised at what would happen if the U.S. government waived the secrecy classifications about UFOs, and how many people would come forward with their own documents, pictures and recollections.  It would be quite a lot of information, far more than has been declassified or leaked to the public so far.

As usual, my question would be how the masses would react to this avalanche of information, only part of which has been officially confirmed up until now.

I wonder how much longer they will keep testing the waters?

Exactly. I was really hoping for something profound. What I read made me think this guy is trying to push his silly book.

I guess the Army would be a given, if they had to remove/protect/cordon off a crash site.

I suppose the detail of this information would be a deciding factor...i.e.' we know they come in peace' versus 'we shot one of them down, P****d them off and now  the rest are on their way to kick out butts'

Yeah, I think we did shoot some of them down and they shoot some of ours down as well.  It seemed that was going on quite a lot in the 1940s and 1950s, and perhaps even later than that, with weapons being "tested" in space.

Did you note this part of the article: "

He spent his final 10 years of CIA service on the director's staff as the agency's first official liaison to the entertainment and publication industries."



Of course, I have always thought the the military and intelligence community were running some kind of "public education" program with the entertainment industry concerning UFOs, probably going back to the 1950s.  Maybe that was part of his job as well.

All he said about the box was that it contained:

"Some written material and some photographs, and that's all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box," he said. "But it absolutely, for me, was the single validating moment that everything I had believed, and knew that so many other people believed had happened, truly was what occurred."



All I ever saw about that other UFO crash was some pictures and documents, never any physical evidence, and I have no idea where that would be.
