My father passed about 6 years ago, my mother about 15 years prior to that.
He would not say too much, as I said, he was, or appeared scared or hesitant when it was brought up. The one time I was at the house, I answered the door, and two "suits" were there and asked for him. He came to the door, came back to me with concern, and asked to me to leave and come back in a couple of hours. I did, and asked who they were, and he said "government". When I pressed him, he put me in my place with a stern "none of your business".
. . . I thought you would like to know. I spoke to my sister last night about Roswell. It was the first time either of us have spoken much about it. She was born in 1938. She was 9 or 10 when the landing occurred. She remembers my dad coming home, covered with soot, or dirt, wild eyed, and saying something like "you can't believe what I saw".

Many thanks for the article Frank.
I will read up on it when I get home from work. I for one don't buy the official Air Force story by a long shot. I hope one day the truth will come out, whatever that truth may be.

I also have a very good friend who I was discussing all things ATS with yesterday. (We were discussing how soon full disclosure would occur, current events, I showed him the Space Shuttle UFO vids, etc)
His Father, in his 80's, was an Air Force Lt. Col when he retired, and he flew B-29's in WWII, not sure what he flew in Korea, and I'm not sure how much involvement he had in Vietnam.
We also discussed what he may know about Roswell. He said he has asked his Dad before and gets nothing but the silent treatment back. The only story he gets back is that he had nothing to do with it, but knows who did.
From what I understand, the B-29 pilots were a close knit group. The only information disclosed so far was that he mentioned a pilot buddy of his who flew a top-secret mission from California, stopped at Roswell Army Airfield and then went to the old Fort Worth base, Carswell. Nothing else, and he won't talk about it. I would think that if he wasn't involved, he could at least speculate a little.
I researched this a little bit after I wrote the above, and that co-pilot would have probably been Capt 'Pappy' Henderson. He was the co-pilot of the first B-29 flight out, and the Pilot was the Roswell Base Commander, Col Payne Jennings.
Something to ponder, and it's probably been posted before somewhere...
Why would the Base Commander pilot this aircraft, when there was so much going on at his base? Why did he leave? You would think he would have delegated that.
We're both hoping that before my buddy's dad passes, he may decide to come clean. He's recently moved into a retirement home.

Even if only 1 out of every 100 eye-witness accounts are real...
Then it's all true.

Would be interesting to see if the person mentioned in the story checks out through personnel records, etc.
Of course, folks should realize, that the man's responses are similar for anyone who has clearance...i.e. "none of your business" or just vague responses. I know, got them from my father all the time, hehe...and still do to this day...
The 3 fingers in response to the little green men is interesting though...and corraborates with others' accounts.
