The Scoutmaster case is from August 1952. The Air Force explained
it as a hoax. Given the scoutmaster's history of spinning tall
tales, had been discharged from the Marines in 1944 under less
than honorable conditions (during the height of WWII, what does
that tell you about the guy?) and there was no independent
corroboration for the sighting if you looked carefully at the
statements of the boy scouts who were there. All the physical
evidence was explainable with the exception of the burnt roots of
the grass samples. But, since the chain of custody was broken,
that might not be important.

Nearly everyone in the UFO fields realizes that this case is a
hoax. Please notice I said nearly everyone.
