In July 1947, the Roswell Daily Record ran a front page story about the recovery of a flying saucer by the Army that had been taken to the Roswell Army Air Field. In a videotape made in 1979, Col. Marcel described the debris materials he found. His testimony sparked the public's fascination with Roswell.
After his father’s death, Dr. Marcel continued recounting the story of the materials his father had shown him when he was a boy. He said the light-weight material would resume its shape if bent. He also saw I-beams with hieroglyphics on them. Dr. Marcel always maintained that the material his father had shown him was “not of this earth,” a belief shared by his father.
Dr. Marcel was deeply committed to the cause of UFO disclosure.In 2007, he wrote a book entitled The Roswell Legacy: The Untold Story of the First Military Officer at the 1947 Crash Site.
Dr. Marcel never varied from his story, offering a powerful response to the official cover-up lies and the mass media's uncritical acceptance of them. Unfortunately, the cover-up continues.
