Anonymous Roswell Letter
Sent to Art Bell & Linda Howe
Which included metal samples
from the Roswell Incident (in 1947)
(For the information of
Australians and others not of U.S. Origin...Art Bell and Linda Howe are
renowned and respected U.S. Researchers in UFO interests. Art Bell was renowned
as a media personality who asked people to come forward and discuss UFO
and Alien matters in the media. It's obvious that MANY CRANKS came forward
and talked rubbish....BUT...amoung the rubbish..there were REAL STORIES
that people wanted to tell..but were afraid to tell..because they were worried
they would be labelled "loonies". )
The below story is from
someone in the US Military who has a wife and kids and wants to remain Anonymous.
For obvious reasons. BUT have a look at this stuff...It is LINKED to other
places on my web site that correspond with what is written below. Can you
really believe that all this is rubbish ? ?
Art Bell had a show which
was aimed at the Paranormal. He asked viewers to contact him with regards
to anything they had that may be considered "out of the normal".
I have obtained this from
another site in Germany that has copied the Art Bell page in English.
It's printed below for
you to view. For Posterity. The Internet is a very "1984" thing.
One day you see something and the next it's gone. I have printed this below

Dear Mr. Bell,
I've followed your broadcasts over the last year or
so, and have been considering whether or not to share with you and your
listeners, some information related to the Roswell UFO crash.
My grandfather was a member of the Retrieval Team, sent
to the crash site, just after the incident was reported. He died in 1974,
but not before he had sat down with some of us, and talked about the incident.
I am currently serving in the military, and hold a Security
Clearance, and do NOT wish to "go public", and risk losing my
career and commission.
Nonetheless, I would like to briefly tell you what my
own grandfather told me about Roswell. In fact, I enclose for your safekeeping
samples that were in the possession of my grandfather until he died, and
which I have had since his own estate was settled. As I understand it, they
came from the UFO debris, and were among a large batch subsequently sent
to Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio from New Mexico.
My grandfather was able to appropriate them, and stated
that the metallic samples, are PURE EXTRACT ALUMINIUM. You will note that
they appear old & tempered, and they have been placed in tissue-paper,
and in protective padding for safekeeping.
I have had them since 1974, and after considerable thought
and reflection, give them to you. Feel free to share them with any of your
friends in the UFO Research Community.
I have listened to many people over the years discuss
Roswell and the crash events, as reported by many who were either there
or who heard about it from eyewitnesses.
The recent Roswell movie, was similar to my grandfather's
own account, but critical elements were left out, and it is those elements
which I would like to share.
As my grandad stated, the Team arrived at the crash
site just after the AAF/USAF reported the ground zero location. They found
two dead occupants, hurled free of the Disc.
Two surviving occupants, were found within the Disc,
and it was apparent, One, it's left leg was broken. There was a minimal
radiation contamination, and it was quickly dispersed with a water/solvent
wash, and soon the occupant was dispatched for medical assistance and isolation.
The bodies were sent to the Wright-Patterson AFB, for dispersal. The debris
was also loaded onto three trucks which finished the on-load just before
Grandad was part of the Team that went
with the surviving occupant. The occupant communicated via telepathic means.
It spoke perfect English, and communicated the following:
The Disc was a "probe ship"
dispatched from a "launch ship" that was stationed at the dimensional
gateway to the Terran Solar System, 32 light years from Terra. They had
been conducting operations on Terra for over 100 years.
Another group were exploring Mars, and
Each "probeship" carried a
crew of about three . A "launchship" had a crew of about one-hundred.
The Disc that crashed, had collided
with a meteor in orbit of Terra, and was attempting to compensate it's flight
vector, but because of the collision, the inter-atmospheric propulsion system
malfunctioned, and the occupants sent out a distress signal to their companions
on Mars. The "launchship" commander made the decision to authorise
an attempted soft-landing on the New Mexican desert. At the same time, the
inter-atmospheric propulsion system had a massive electrical burn-out, and
the Disc was soon virtually helpless.
There was another option available to
the occupants, but it involved activating the Dimensional powerplant for
deep space travel. However, it opens an energy vortex around the Disc for
1,500 miles in all directions. Activating the Dimensional powerplant, would
have resulted in the annihilation of the states of New Mexico, Arizona,
California and portions of Mexico. Possibly even further states would have
Thus, the occupants, chose to ride the
ship down, and hope for the best. They literally sacrificed their lives,
rather than destroy the populations within their proximity.
The Dimensional powerplant was self-destructed,
and the inter-atmospheric propulsion system was also deactivated, to prevent
the technology from falling into the hands of the Terrans. This was done
in accordance with their standing orders in regards to any compromise with
Grandad spent a total of 26 weeks in the Team that examined
and debriefed the lone survivor of the Roswell crash. Grandad's affiliation
with the "project" ended, when the occupant was to be transported
to a long-term facility. He was placed on-board a USAF Transport aircraft,
that was to be sent to Washington, D.C.
The aircraft and all aboard disappeared under mysterious
and disturbing circumstances, enroute to Washington, D.C.
It may interest you that three Fighter aircraft, dispatched
to investigate a distress call from the Transport experienced many electrical
malfunctioning systems failures, as they entered the airspace of the transports
last reported location. No crash or debris of the Transport was ever found.
The Team was disbanded.
Well, I realise I have likely shocked you with this
bizarre and incredible account, and seeking to remain "unknown"
likely doesn't do anything for my credibility ...eh?... And the metal "samples"
only will likely add to the controversy.....
But, I know you will take this with a "grain of
salt", and I don't blame you, Mr. Bell.
I just hope that you can understand,
my reasons and my own desire to maintain my career and commission.
I am passing through South Carolina with an Operational
Readiness Mobility Exercise, and will mail this just prior to this Exercise,
possibly from the Charleston area.
I will listen to your broadcast, to receive any acknowledging
or confirmation, that you have received this package.
This letter and the contents of the package are given
to you, with the hope that it helps contribute to discussion on the subject
of UFO Phenomena.
I agree with Neil Armstrong, a good
friend of mine, who dared to say, at the WHITE HOUSE no less, that there
are things "out there", which boggle the mind and are far beyond
our ability to comprehend.
At great risk, I am writing you in regards to the package
sent your way. I had opportunity to listen to a tape recording of the radio
broadcasts, when I returned home after having participated in the Mobility
My son, a Senior in college recorded them for me.
I must say that I was somewhat surprised by the negative
and closed-minded responses directed your way, by some of your own listeners.
You seemed to indicate that receiving the package has
vastly upset your life, and in this I would like to say that wasn't my intention,
and I offer my apologies.
Further information regarding the Roswell Crash, and
my own grandfathers affiliation would likely be potentially beneficial in
your efforts at correlation & verification.
In this regards, I can only say, based on past conversations
on the subject with Grandad, that the Retrieval Team, consisted of three
segments. The On-site Team, the In-House Team, and the Security Team. The
credentials of the team members weren't only military related. There were
individuals with backgrounds from The University of Colorado,Office of Naval
Research, AAF/USAF & US Army, UCLA and Atomic Energy Commission &
National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics & Office of Scientific Research
and Development. Additionally, there were Consultants from England, France
and Russia involved.
Grandad stated their own analysis of the samples indicated
it as pure extract aluminium, as a conductor for the electromagnetic fields
created in the propulsion systems. However, critically-needed data was "eliminated"
by the self-destruct mechanisms on the disc vehicle itself. Furthermore,
the occupant-survivor of the crash, refused to disclose technical information,
despite a series of interrogative attempts to extract technological data.
No means could be found to secure the information.
There were always two Security Team members present
at every face-to-face meeting with the survivor. The survivor had the ability
to deduce thoughts and questions, prior to them being asked. Sometimes it
The Disc itself was literally dissected, and it was
discovered that the propulsion system had actually fused together the many
interior components. There were control-type devises forged in the shape
of the alien hand, which were assumed as controls and activation surfaces.
What is today fiber-optic technology, was part and parcel
of the alien technology within the control panels, albeit fused and melted
when the self-destruct mechanism was activated.
There were Westinghouse-affiliated persons on the Team,
and Grandad always thought, some of them had gone back, with the knowledge
and incorporated it into the future research with the phone systems.
Of course the Military was concerned as to the ability
of the Aliens to enter our atmosphere at will, undetected, and thusly they
recommended to the President that a Space Program be set into motion, and
that a system of satellites be placed into orbit by 1957, and this satellite
system be patched into the then DEW Line early warning system...which became
Grandad stated that it was his opinion,
that NORAD was formed not only to track possible ICBM's from hostile nations,
but as a established Detection System for UFO craft. That is why the NASA
Space Agency has been "incorporated" by and large with our Armed
Forces, and there are so many "classified" missions.
This is my opinion, but Grandad prophesied
such occurring as far back as 1971.
Well, I am scheduled to travel back to Charleston AFB
and then Pope AFB. I'll mail this from somewhere in SC.
I'll not likely communicate again. My wife is concerned,
as am I that the Intelligence agencies will put two & two together,
so it is inadvisable to further communicate this information. I hope you
understand my position.
I could likely face a courts martial or sedition charges,
for stating some of this information, and opinions.
You would be surprised at the extent of internal politics
on this subject, and the consequences for current commissioned officers
talking about UFO Phenomena.
I was surprised by Edgar Mitchell's statements of recent
date and I imagine there are many involved with Roswell, who are a bit upset
at events underway.
However, he is a man of outstanding character &
integrity, and knows whereof he speaks, as do quite a few other astronauts.
I wish you all the best, and will be listening.
I commend your courage and integrity.
I hope your listeners understand, that the subject of
Roswell has great potential at extrapolating the truth on UFO's, and what
has come to be known as a cosmic watergate, is only the tip of an iceberg.
Grandad said that when the truth does come out, humanity will be changed beyond comprehension.
He also said
many on the In-House Team lobbied to release the information to the public.
Not all of them were paranoid in trusting the public with the truth.
THIRD LETTER No Date (arrived May 28, 1996)
I have listened with interests, to the ongoing reports
on the samples I sent your way.
I noted that the Researcher discussing the testing of
the samples noted that basically, it is merely Aluminum. Slight variations
on the testing, but indistinguishable from "normal" Aluminum.
Actually, this is precisely the same initial findings
of Grandad's Team. However, I neglected to include metallic samples of the
exterior of the crashed Roswell disc.
I now include the enclosed, and can only say that these
scrapings came from the exterior underside of the Disc itself. It literally
was a "shell-like" shielding of the Disc. Brittle and layered,
almost with a prefabricated design and placing.
Keep in mind Mr Bell, that these are the last of Grandad's
samples. They have sat for years inside a closet, with his personal effects.
Because of certain concerns, I will not be contacting
you on this matter. Perhaps, I am a bit paranoid, but I do have a family
& career to think about. I hope you understand.
I Hope these last samples are helpful.
On May 31th, Linda Howe
provided a further extensive report on Art Bell. This program is captured
in our Real-Audio Archives.
Letter to Linda Howe
Another letter appeared, this time sent to Linda Howe.
May 25, 1996
Dear Ms Howe,
I'm not certain if this is how your last name is spelled.
Nonetheless, I wanted to get in touch with you, personally. So I have taken
this opportunity to do so.
I'm the individual who has dispatched the artifacts
of Roswell Disc debris, to talk show Art Bell. While I was on a flight to
Hungary, with Joint Endeavour; my wife acquired your address on a "Dreamland"
Broadcast. I've been unable until this deployment to listen with interests
to your comments & opinions, as to the artifacts and noted some apprehension
as to the materials, itself. This is fully understandable.
When I decided over 6 months ago, to turn these artifacts
over to the UFO Research Community, I decided that it would be accomplished
by allowing Art Bell to be the mediator/trustee of the artifacts. Partly
because of his record of complete neutrality on these matters, but moreso,
because I thought the artifacts safety would be insured completely. I regret
the undue & unwarranted turmoil, caused to the Bell household, but still
feel justified in my initial decision. I've been looking over Grandad's
journal, and wanted to share a few brief extractions with you and Mr Bell.
Firstly, I note that the intent of your own efforts
as to the exams of the artifacts is to confirm some sort of other-world
extraterrestial, source of the metals.
This was the initial aspect of the original exams. But,
what came to light was that the metal was virtually indiscernible to Earth
metals. According to Grandad's notations: "this was to insure that
in the event of crash or capture, that no verification as to the alien network
or the homeworld confederation could be proven, and a compromise of the
Alien directives transpired". Apparently,
"the probeships were constructed with metallic base metals, indistinguishable
from Terran metals, as a protective measure & security safeguard".
There was a drawback to this, "a negative consequence
was that the probeships would be vulnerable to radar interference. The Aliens
remedy to this was to insure the probeships maintained high velocity trajectories,
and activated these velocities upon entering the Terran atmosphere".
Most of the interatmosphere operations, occurred in
the Western Hemisphere, and in the areas of Europe & Asia, with populations
consisting of "network selectees". This was a term that the Aliens
used to identify persons destined for contact. These contacts were "conceived
& predestined prior to birth" and was "scheduled to be accelerated
& increased throughout the three decades prior to 2000 A.C.E., when
the network would initiate the "transition".
"Transition" was a term that
meant full-contact, occurring around the Terran year 2012.
All this information was acquired from
the sole surviving Alien occupant, and was correlated with information retrieved
from the databanks of the command console panels within the Disc command
canter. It took a full year and a half to decipher the Alien language, which resembled
ancient Babylonian script. But, with the help of World War II cryptologists
who worked with the War Department, the code texts were broken, and deciphered.
All the results were shared with the Offices of those overseeing The "Project" as it was known, among them General Curtis Lemay, Secretary of
State George Marshall, and President Truman, and the Intelligence operatives,
who oversaw Security for the Roswell "Project".
Most of these activities transpired at Wright-Patterson,
and would result "in an extensive reformatting of the entire policy
developments, regarding potential Alien Contact. Upon advice of the "Project"
directors, the decision was made to incorporate a discredation campaign
on those claiming Alien Contact, and those who advocated Alien existence."
Furthermore, the "Project" directors, recommended
that the U.N. be granted overall command authority over the "Project".
Both Secretary of Satate Marshall and his successor Dean Acheson argued
against this recommendation. President Truman personally visited Wright-Patterson
on a number of occasions.
So, you see Ms Howe, that there is a lot more to this
Roswell "Project" and "incident", then many can even
begin to discern or comprehend.
Try to imagine as Grandad, used to say;
that it is 1947, and the USA has just survived a global struggle, millions
had been killed or injured, and suddenly, even as the dawn of the Atomic
age came to being, that the existence of Alien Life has been accidentally
discovered. Many facets of inquiry were taken into account, and some of
the most brilliant & accomplished minds in Government would do anything
to ascertain the exact extent and perspective purpose of these Aliens.
What was once considered fiction, was
proven reality. Absolutely every attempt was made to exhaust the efforts
at understanding & comprehending this extraordinary event. It was decided
to keep the information secret, classified and beyond retrieval.
It has been almost 50 years, and the secret has been
steadily maintained, protected, and insured. WHY?
Grandad was one who lobbied for full-disclosure. He
understood that release of the information could result in chaos, of a sort
in civilisation. Because of his concern for the safety of his family, he
complied with the secrecy oath.
It wasn't until the mid 1960's that he talked with anyone
on the "Project". He spoke with one particular person, who had
promised confidentiality, and was faithful to that promise. You may have
known that person: Dr J. Allen Hynek.
Other than that brief discourse with Dr Hynek, Grandad
The year 2000 approaches. It is time that the Roswell
secret is disclosed. The weight of the evidence will demand a verdict. That
verdict will be rendered by the people. Millions have witnessed the UFO
Phenomena in the last 50 years.
Virtually thousands have claimed contact with Aliens.
What happened at Roswell was a beginning. Not a beginning of the end of
civilisation, as some feared if the information was disclosed. But, actually
a beginning of beginnings.
One can argue the impact of an accidental discovery
of this magnitude.
50 years of UFO Phenomena have occurred for a purpose.
A stellar purpose predetermined since that first A-Bomb was detonated in
Humanity has survived in spite of itself. Because of
I believe that the "Transition" Grandad wrote
of is underway. What I've shared with Art Bell, you, and the entire world
was done in Honour of a quiet and courageous gentleman who was a witness
to the wonders of this Universe.
Our world is changing.
Nothing can stop that.
This concludes my own part in what lies ahead. I now
go back to my career & responsibilities, to my family and my own life.
I have dared to risk, and no matter the consequenced, I am confident Grandad
would support this action.
You have the "evidence", some have sought
for and demanded.
Of course, for some it will not be enough. Discount
it, discredit it, so be it. It matters little in the final analysis...sound
& fury signifying nothing... it's much more than that.
