Good Day All,

If I might step in here. I had several interviews with Cavitt
including one at his winter residence in Sierra Vista and two at
his home in Washington State. He told me, in order, that he
hadn't been in Roswell in early July 1947, that he had been
assigned to the base there but hadn't arrived yet and finally
that he was there but that he didn't go out on any recovery of a

You can read Cavitt's interview with Weaver in the Air Force
produced The Roswell Report beginning in Section 18 and is dated
24 May 1994. In it you can read how Cavitt explains that he
recognized the material on the ranch as a weather balloon when
he first saw it but doesn't explain why he didn't mention this
to either Marcel or to COL Blanchard so they could have avoided
the embarrassment of announcing they had a flying saucer.

You can also read how there were no checkpoints out there though
others have talked about them. In fact, you can read how Cavitt
disagrees with nearly everyone who has talked about the case in
some fashion.

So, Cavitt is on the record, in several places, but his stories
change as the mood moves him.
