Roswell's "Victims of the Wreck"
That's the subject of a new article from me, at Mysterious Universe. Here's the link and below are the first two paragraphs:
If, like me, you’re fascinated by the seemingly-never-ending soap-opera known as “Roswell,” you surely won’t have missed the recent injection of life given to the so-called “Ramey Memo.” It’s a solitary piece of paper that some Roswell sleuths think is the Holy Grail of Ufology. If you’re not aware of what’s afoot, read on. UFO author/investigator Barry Greenwood says that the Ramey Memo is “…a folded piece of paper held in the hand of Brigadier General Roger Ramey, head of the 8th Army Air Force based at Fort Worth, Texas.” He continues: “On July 8, 1947, photographs were taken of Ramey, his chief of staff, Thomas DuBose and Roswell AAF officer Jesse Marcel Sr…in response to an AAF press release that the debris recovered from the alleged Roswell UFO crash was a weather balloon…” Greenwood adds: “One can see in photo prints that the document being held has lines of text at the edge of visibility.” Greenwood also notes that while the text “…remains at the extreme limit of resolution,” it is a fact that a number of words “…do seem to be visible, asserting the document’s relevance to the Roswell incident, but little else is clear.”
What’s particularly interesting about this small number of visible words is that they appear to refer to what many researchers believe to be the “victims of the wreck.” Now, I’m not going to get into the debate surrounding whether the words are being correctly interpreted or not, as that’s an issue currently being hotly and deeply debated at both Rich Reynolds’ and Kevin Randle’s blogs. Instead, I’m going to focus on something else.
