After 60 years, the speculation is over!

The last living survivor of the 1947 incident tells his, and his
father's story.

The Roswell Legacy
by Jesse Marcel, Jr.

To be Released Worldwide July 4, 2007

At the 60th Anniversary Roswell Festival in

Roswell, New Mexico, July 5-8

[June 12, 2007, Helena, MT]... In 1986, on his death bed, retired
Major Jesse Marcel told his son; "You must tell the world the
truth about Roswell. When the military no longer has a hold over
you and your family, please set the record straight!"

Major Jesse Marcel was the head of intelligence at an Army Air
Field located at Roswell, Nevada. On July 7, 1947 Major Marcel
was sent to inspect what was being reported as the crash of an
unidentified object on a ranch seventy-five miles northwest of
the base. After inspecting the crash site, Marcel stopped by his
home to show his family what he had discovered. Jesse Jr. was
only eleven years old at the time, but vividly remembers his
father's excitement, and seeing and handling a foil-like
material that his father said was scattered around the wreckage.
It was shiny and paper thin, but could not be torn or cut. It
also retained a memory, mysteriously unfolding each time his
father tried to fold it. And then there was that beam of metal
several feet long, which was covered with hieroglyphic-type
writing and markings. It was indeed something that was not of
this world.

Upon return to his Air base, Major Marcel's superior officer,
Col. William "Butch" Blanchard, ordered him to fly the material
to Wright Patterson Air Base in Akron, OH, first stopping in
Fort Worth, TX to show the strange findings to Gen. Roger
Ramey,,the head of the Eighth Air Force. When Ramey learned that
Blanchard had issued a press release stating they had recovered
a "flying disc," and that it was being flown to Wright-Pat,
Ramey was livid, and immediately called a press conference.
Marcel would be photographed (see photo right) holding remnants
of a weather balloon, and was forced to tell the media that
these were his only findings at Roswell. From that time on, and
despite dozens of collaborating witnesses at the crash site,
Major Marcel was forced to live with that lie the rest of his

His father's words haunted Jesse Jr. for nearly twenty years. As
his retirement finally approached, while serving his tour of
duty in Iraq in 2004, Jesse Jr. decided to put pen to paper. In
a few short months the U.S. Military could no longer force he
and his family to keep the secret any longer. He remembered how
embarrassed his father was when he was forced to tell the world
that the object he inspected was only a weather balloon. The
famous photo of his father (see right), kneeling and holding the
remnants of a weather balloon have been an injustice the Marcel
family had endured for nearly sixty years.

Now with release of The Roswell Legacy, Jesse Sr. ill finally be
vindicated and the world will learn the truth. With a forward
written by the renowned Ufologist, Stanton Friedman, this book
clears the air

"The world has waited a long time for the inside scoop on
Roswell. Truth is an excellent curative for false proclamations.
The Roswell crashed saucer retrieval is one of the most
important UFO cases ever, anywhere. We need more information
from those directly involved, and this book provides a good deal
of important new material." --Stanton T. Friedman

The Roswell Legacy will be released Worldwide on July 5, 2007 in
Roswell, NM, at the 60th Anniversary celebration.
Interviews and appearances with Jesse Marcel are now being
scheduled. Jesse will appear for book signings at the Roswell
International UFO Museum July 5-8, 2007.
