This makes it sound as if there was a disk recovered from LA and that no disk was recovered in Missouri in April 1941.
Was re-reading this, and saw this question.
It's an intriguing case....
There is one document (in '44) which may apply to that incident, but as a whole, the MJ-12 story seems to start in '42. But, since the Battle of LA
incident had already occurred, the document could be talking about it as well.
Here's the researchers' comments on the document in question:
On February 22, 1944 Franklin D. Roosevelt writes a DOUBLE TOP SECRET memo on White House stationary for "The special committee on
non-terrestrial science and technology." Both the title and the content clearly allude to extraterrestrial life, the former using the word
"non-terrestrial" and the latter talks about "coming to grips with the reality that our planet is not the only one harboring intelligent life the
universe." Remarkably, the last four words are exactly the title of Sagan's book co-authored with the Soviet scientist Shklovsky. Clearly the
situation was that we had recovered at least one craft by then, probably the Cape Girardeau crash of 1941, and came to realize the wealth of
technology that lay there for the pickings. Apparently the "Special Committee on Non-terrestrial Science and Technology" had been working some time
in order to define a clear action. Dr. Bush had presumably presented a proposal from the Committee for an aggressive separate program to apply
"non-terrestrial know how" to the war effort, but FDR thought that it would threaten the atomic bomb program. Thus, he carefully avoids saying
"no," but says that we will "take every advantage of such wonders that have come to us" after we have won the war. Very gracious letter. The
classification "double top secret" was a legitimate one.
