“My name is June Crain. I’m 72 years old. I’ve outlived two husbands and have survived cancer twice. What are they going to do – shoot me or put me in prison?”

Wright Paterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio has been shrouded in mystery for generations. Many books and articles have been written about what the U.S. government has been keeping top secret within the structures on the base. The latest book is written by Don Schmitt and Thomas Carey, “Inside the Real Area 51: The Secret History of Wright-Patterson.”

In their book they have compiled interviews from former employees at the infamous air base. One of the former workers they interviewed was June Crain, who worked as a secretary in a sensitive position in the office at the air base from 1942 through 1952. June reports that in 1948 a sergeant who had clearance to enter the office on a regular basis come in and told her and other office personnel that he had just gotten back from New Mexico and brought back alien bodies from a UFO crash that had occurred near Roswell. He told them that the UFO was real and so were the alien bodies, as he personally saw them. Not long after the sergeant left the office the base commander entered with a document. He insisted that everyone who was present to hear the sergeant’s story sign the non-disclosure document. The commander also told them that the penalty for disclosing the information would be a $20,000 fine and 20 years imprisonment.

Government scare tactics have worked for years with people who worked at the base and knew the truth about what really happened in Roswell. Most of the threatened employees are now dead, and the others are too old to be frightened any longer.

Another “coincidence” about the air base is that Captain Edward Ruppelt, who was the head of the USAF’s Air Technical Intelligence Center and “Project Blue Book,” was stationed at and worked out of Wright-Patterson.

In 1965 Captain Bruce Cathie, an airline pilot from New Zealand, informed Colonel John Burnett, also stationed at Wright-Patterson, that he had discovered a worldwide grid system used by UFOs. Burnett relayed to Cathie that intense research was going on at the air base, which included a scientific laboratory that was staffed by many of the world’s top scientists. Burnett also told Cathie that this work was being done twenty-four hours a day, and 365 days a year.

Although many top secret documents have been declassified, the US Government is still lying to us about what was discovered in the New Mexico dessert in 1948 and about what is really going on at Wright-Patterson Air Base.

No surprises here. I've long known better than to believe anything the government says, ESPECIALLY if they are denying it--that is tantamount to advertising instead!

Voted up, interesting and useful.
