>>Jesse Marcel, Jr. Sees Again the Symbols From the Roswell
>>"Flying Saucer" Crash

>>By James Bond Johnson


>>The symbols, described by many as the "fishhook", the "shark
>>fin" and the "Ankh" and some others were back to remind him of
>>that special night. Over the years Jesse had been asked to
>>describe the symbols and he had sketched them for publication in
>>books on UFOs.

>>But now, thanks to high tech digital enlargement techniques,
>>these symbols had been discovered on pieces of the debris shown
>>with his dad in the 8th Air Force headquarters offices of Brig.
>>General Roger Ramey in Fort Worth, Texas.

>>Major Marcel was photographed along with General Ramey and
>>Ramey's chief of staff, Colonel Thomas J. Dubose, all examining
>>the wreckage which had been brought to Fort Worth by Major

>>The story of that Roswell crash has been told and retold so many
>>times... and with so many conflicting details... in dozens of
>>books and articles, a movie and several television shows over
>>the years. But one thing always has been clear in the mind of
>>Jesse Marcel, Jr. -- the symbols on the pieces of wreckage.


>>Meanwhile, Dr. Marcel, veteran of Pacific military combat and
>>now proudly retired in the rank of full colonel after a total of
>>38 years active and National Guard service as a helicopter pilot
>>and flight surgeon, turned back to his computer screen to scan
>>the debris photo even more closely.

A minor point here but one that might be relevant. Jesse served
in Southeast Asia which, I suppose could be considered part of
the Pacific. That statement, however, seems to suggest a World
War II connection which isn't precisely accurate.

>>The symbol that he remembers best was a figure of a truncated
>>pyramid with a ball floating over it. "I remember it best
>>because it resembled a seal balancing a ball on its nose", he
>>said. Maybe he will find it somewhere in those pictures where it
>>has been hiding for 51 years.

>I have been in close touch with Dr. Jesse A. Marcel over the
>last few days re these pictures. Bond has very unfortunately
>vastly overstated what Jesse says. He has NOT said that anything
>in the pictures looks like the I-beam and symbols and other
>wreckage he saw in July 1947.

>Stan Friedman

Like Stan, Michael and R.J. Durant, I have been very concerned
about what J. Bond Johnson has to say. Like the others I have
contacted Jesse Marcel. He told me he was disturbed by the
misrepresentation and that Johnson was putting words in his
mouth. His comments were taken out of context by Johnson and
don't seem to reflect reality. Given my history with Johnson,
I'm not surprised.
