More than 50 years ago an event occurred that permanently changed the way many Americans feel about the government In July of 1947 in Roswell New Mexico strange wreckage was found The first press release issued by Colonel William Blanchard identified the material as a crashed alien disk Hours later a press release was issued from General Roger Rameys office claiming the wreckage was merely a weather balloon and that Colonel Blanchard had somehow made a very large mistake in identifying it Due to the contrasting stories and the very weak cover up performed by the government many people refused to believe it was in fact a weather balloon that crashed on that day 51 years ago In the minds of many it was an alien UFO that crashed that in Roswell New Mexico Roswell Army Airfield was the home of the 509th Bomb Group These people were an elite outfit the only atomic group in the world The idea that Colonel Blanchard could have confused a crashed weather balloon with a UFO inconceivable It is totally preposterous A man of his caliber would not have made a statement so ridiculous sounding if it had not been true Of the two press releases made that day one of them had to be true Those who knew Blanchard all said the same thing if he said it was a crashed disk it was- he would not make a fool out of himself General Thomas Dubose testified before his death in 1992 that he had taken a phone call from General Clements McMullen at Andrews Army Airfield who ordered the cover up He was told that General Ramey should come up with a cover story to get the press off their backs Thus they did so-- coming up with the weather balloon story that the government attempts to maintain as true Glenn Dennis was a mortician with a contract with Roswell Army Airfield
