US Army Major ‘Hid Debris From Roswell UFO Crash in His Water Heater After Government Tried to Cover it Up’

• In July 1947, a “flying disk” crash landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Military troops moved into the area to investigate and recover debris from the crash site. Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Group at the Roswell Army Air Field, was the first military man at the site. Specialist teams were brought in to remove the wreckage. It is claimed by some that several dead alien bodies were also recovered and flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for further study.

• Calvin Parker was 19 years old when he had his own close encounter with a UFO in Pascagoula, Mississippi in October 1973. Parker was fishing on the banks of the Pascagoula River with his pal Charlie Hickson when a UFO landed nearby. Strange creatures with lobster-like claws emerged from the craft, grabbed the two men and dragged them onboard their craft. Being kindred spirits by each having an extraordinary UFO experience, a mutual friend set up three separate meetings between Parker and Marcel in the early 1980s.

• Parker says that Marcel told him “straight up” that a UFO had crashed at Roswell and the US government tried to cover it up. According to Parker, “At first [Marcel] said he was allowed to talk about what had happened but later was told not to say a word in fear that the Russian’s might find out.” “He told me that he was ordered to say that it was just a weather balloon that had crashed, and being a good soldier he carried out those orders.” “He claimed that the government gave out fake information of where the UFO crash site was so that no one would know where it actually happened.”

• At first, the military said that the crashed object was a weather balloon, and later the Air Force claimed it was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, to detect Soviet atomic bomb tests. Marcel said he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to help debunk the UFO crash story. (see featured image above)

• Major Marcel was very sick at the time of the meetings. He told Parker that, being the first to arrive on the scene at Roswell, he recovered three strange pieces of metal from the crash site. The strange material Marcel found was a kind of lightweight metal that would spring back into shape after being crumpled. He told Parker “[I]t wasn’t anything of this world.” He secretly took the three pieces of the pliable metal material home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

• According to UFO investigator Philip Mantle, Major Marcel’s son, Dr Jesse Marcel Jr, remembers handling the alien material in 1947. But he never saw the material again after that night. Parker and another witness who was interviewed by Mantle say that Marcel confided to them that he had hidden the three pieces of alien material in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana. Recalled Parker, “They were hidden in the top of his hot water heater in his house. All you had to do was to undo the top two screws on the water heater and remove the lid.” Unfortunately, Marcel passed away in 1986 before Parker had chance to see him again or check the water heater. “Could the three pieces of UFO debris still be there?” wonders Parker. “Well the house is (still there).”

 

Major Jesse Marcel, who was the first officer on the scene after a “flying disk” crash landed in New Mexico, took material home from the crash site in July 1947 and kept it in his house, according to British investigator Philip Mantle.

Marcel was dispatched by Roswell Army Air Field, where he worked as an intelligence officer for the

509th Bomb Group, to investigate the crash and recovered pieces of the strange material from the desert.

Specialist teams were brought in to clear the wreckage and, it is claimed by some, several dead alien bodies who were flown to Wright Patterson Airforce Base, Ohio, for further study.

tests.

However, before his death in 1986, Major Marcel admitted there had been a cover-up – and that he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to debunk the UFO crash story.

Until now it was not known what happened to the strange material he found at the site – a kind of metal which would spring back into shape after being crumpled – and which he said he took home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

But a witness has told UFO investigator Philip Mantle that the major confided in him that he kept three pieces of the UFO in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana.

Before Roswell: The 1941 UFO Incident at Cape Girardeau

 

Article by Susan Leighton                          February 1, 2020                           (1428elm.com)

• Because of the national attention that the 1947 UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico received, and the extensive government cover-up thereafter, most people believe that Roswell was ground zero for the UFO frenzy that took over the country during the 40’s and 50’s. Not so. In 1941, a UFO crash incident occurred in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

• Officials at the Cape Girardeau crash site called on local Reverend William Huffman to come and give last rites to the crash victims. When Huffman arrived, he found a chaotic scene that included police and firemen emergency personnel, and the FBI. Then he was struck by the sight of the strange craft. It was like nothing he had ever seen before.

• Huffman was escorted to the interior of the disc-shaped craft. Inside, he first noticed weird lettering which in Huffman’s mind was similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics. Then he saw the bodies of the victims. They looked alien in origin with huge heads, big almond shaped eyes, slits for their mouths and ears, and no hair whatsoever on their bodies. After Huffman performed his rites, military personnel accosted him and told him to keep quiet about this incident.

• But Reverend Huffman was so disturbed by what he encountered that night that he shared his experience with his wife and sons. The secret remained within the family until his granddaughter, Charlette Mann, learned the truth from her grandmother on her deathbed. Charlette learned that her grandfather had photographic evidence of the alien creatures. Charlette found images of the scene that night, including one of a deceased extraterrestrial being propped up between two men who are posing for the camera.

UFO sightings came into our collective consciousness in the U.S. starting in 1947 with the famous incident in Roswell, New Mexico. Everyone knows that story. At first, the Air Force reported that a flying saucer had crashed on rancher Mac Brazel’s property.

Soon afterward, they recanted and suddenly, the weather balloon response was born. Years later, it was reported that the debris found in Lincoln County was actually from the top-secret project, “Mogul,” which was armed with recording equipment so that we could detect when Russia was performing nuclear tests.

Because of all of the national attention, this is why most people believe that Roswell was ground zero for the UFO

frenzy that took over the country during the 40’s and 50’s. However, that isn’t entirely the case. In 1941, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, another event occurred.

According to Liveabout.com, the saga began when Reverend William Huffman was asked to pray over victims in a crash. Thinking nothing of this request because he had done last rites many times in the past, he set out for the location.

When he arrived, there were all sorts of emergency personnel there from firemen to policemen and the FBI. Making his way through the chaotic scene, he was struck by the sight of a strange craft. It was like nothing he had ever seen before.

Declassified UFO Report Documents ‘Green Circular Object’ Over Soviet Missile Range

 

Article by Andrew Whalen                         January 10, 2020                      (newsweek.com)

• In the summer of 1973, a Soviet source was working at the Soviet Union’s Sary Shagan Weapons Testing Range in present-day Kazakhstan. Also known as “Site 7”, the base was the headquarters for the “warhead checkout unit” with a garrison of Soviet Air Force personnel stationed there. That evening, the source stepped outside “for some air”, looked up and saw a “green circular object or mass in the sky.” The sky was clear with no clouds, and there was no sound. In a matter of minutes, the green circle widened and several green concentric circles formed around the center mass. Then the green mass disappeared.

• The CIA made note of this Cold War-era intelligence at the time. In 1978 the CIA released a heavily redacted, one paragraph version of the full intelligence report detailing the UFO sighting. Recently, John Greenewald of The Black Vault requested a Mandatory Declassification Review of the document and received a more detailed declassified CIA intelligence report on the incident, including rough maps of the facilities, the command hierarchy and personnel estimates. Weapons tested at the facility included experimental missiles, possible laser weapons, and warheads with cartridges loaded with hundreds of metal balls.

• Greenewald drew a parallel between Cold War-era sightings and modern UAP encounters documented by the U.S. Department of Defense. “This is very much similar to the context we see today, with threats on military facilities,” Greenewald told Newsweek in a telephone interview. A May 2019 Newsweek article (see here), first reported by Politico and The Washington Post, revealed that UAPs intrude upon military airspace as often as several times per month.

 

An intelligence report newly declassified by the CIA sheds new light on a nearly 50-year-old UFO mystery, revealing details gathered from an experimental missile range in present-day Kazakhstan.

The report not only includes unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), but rumored Cold War “laser weapons.”

The UFO sighting took place in 1973 and was first revealed to the public in an “Intelligence Information Report” released by the CIA in 1978. Heavily redacted, the declassified version of the document contains only a single paragraph, detailing an encounter with a UFO at a location called “Site 7.”

The UFO encounter took place in the summer, when the sighting’s source “stepped outside for some air,” taking a break from watching a Canada vs. USSR sports match on TV. It was evening, and the source saw above “an unidentified sharp (bright) green circular object or mass in the sky.”

The UFO spotter believed the object was hovering above the cloud level, though it was a clear sky at the time of the sighting. The source was not, however, able to estimate the object’s diameter.

The sighting got weirder from there: “Within 10 to 15 seconds of observation, the green circle widened and within a brief period of time several green concentric circles formed around the mass. Within minutes the coloring disappeared. There was no sound, such as an explosion, associated with the phenomenon,” the document says.
