Howard Menger, Van Tassel and Dan Fry, completing the series on Leslie UFO (Adamski) in the Quantum Cosmology account. The damaged file with Dan Fry is now part of this series. ETs walk do amongst us; valuable evidence is provided by reliable witnesses. There are incredible revelations regarding the Military building Saucers on Earth, secrecy and methods in recruiting Contactees, witness accounts of Human Looking Space People and.well I am blown away. Sadly I am led to understand Menger passed away as recently as Feb 2009 at 87 years of age. You will meet all his family in this film. I wish I had known he was alive at that time.[ex/]

THE MENGER STORY and OBITUARY
In the late summer of 1956, in a rural community of Northwestern New Jersey, in the undulating fertile hills of Hunterdon County, a series of events transpired which brought nationwide and eventually worldwide attention to High Bridge, New Jersey.
A young man's account of seeing and photographing "flying saucers" (as they were called in those days) alerted the entire east coast to the first UFO FLAP. Photographs of the flying saucers (called UFO's) in flight were developed by a local film processor and eventually found their way into the news media, radio and television.
Howard Menger had begun his strange odyssey from a prosaic, routine life of a successful businessman and contented family man into the strange world of UFO's, aliens, and the paranormal.
Menger's story attempts to recount the incident at High Bridge, New Jersey as it happened, how we perceived it, how we later tried to evaluate it. The authors cannot offer a ready answer or easy solution to the illusive UFO phenomenon. Nevertheless, we conscientiously submit this story with the objective that it might suggest a pattern that invariably followed the reporting of UFO's, and how these incidents affected the lives of many contactees, abductees and their families.
The authors believe that the underlying pattern of the UFO phenomenon is controlled by a central network from which contrived information, such as sightings, holograms, photographs, specimens and documented accounts is fed to the public. This central network consists of various top secret agencies in our government working with specialized personnel of the Army, Navy, and Air Force in secret locations. But why is the public uninformed? The authors believe they know why, but cannot prove it. Their main purpose is to let people know their side of the story: behind the story: and let the reader decide the answer.
Howard Menger, 87, beloved husband, father, retired Army veteran of World War Two, business owner, inventor, author, speaker, and long time resident of Vero Beach, transitioned peacefully at 11:11 PM on Wednesday, February 25, 2009.
Born in 1922 in Brooklyn, New York, he grew up during the Great Depression on a farm in Highbridge, New Jersey, and joined the U.S. Army at the age of 19. Trained in a flame-thrower unit of the 713th Armored Tank Battalion, Howard served honorably in the service of his country while at war with Japan in the Pacific. During the battle for Okinawa, he earned the Purple Heart and several campaign medals. He left the service after the war and returned to Highbridge to start his own business in outdoor advertising and raise his family. During that time, he witnessed unexplained phenomenon that were described as “flying saucers” and wrote a book about his experiences. He also spoke to the public about these strange occurrences, appearing first on the Long John Nebel show in New York in the 1950s, as well as many other radio and television broadcasts over the years. He was both defamed and honored for his outspoken stories, and eventually left New Jersey to live in Florida, away from the public life.
Howard and his loving wife, Connie Menger, moved to Florida in 1962 to continue in the sign business and enjoy the beautiful weather. In Florida, Howard also worked on several alternative energy inventions in his own backyard shop, while he and Connie raised their family and built their local business, becoming one of the most successful outdoor advertising businesses in Indian River County. Howard and Connie eventually retired in 1991 from the business world and pursued other interests, primarily their family and their friends, including their domestic and wild animal friends! Howard always enjoyed nature, and loved to sit on the porch at his home, watching the birds and squirrels share his yard. He often built them their own homes, and made sure he kept their water bowls full. He also took time to write another book with Connie, and was asked to speak occasionally, both in the United States and abroad, about his early experiences in Highbridge.
Howard is survived by his wife, Connie, son Eric Menger, daughter Heidi Menger Evans, and grandchildren Kristen, Tiffany, Christopher, and Caitlin Menger and Melissa Evans. There are also children from a former marriage; Richard and Patricia Menger, and their children. Howard and Connie celebrated their 50 year anniversary in May of 2008.[ex/]
