New Tech Exam of Old Roswell UFO Photos Clears General Ramey of Hoax Charges
* * *
Release from Orange County MUFON has gone today to the
wire services. I have been contacted by numerous media
requesting radio, TV and press interviews and for me to
be photographed with the new super enlargements which
show the various "writings" and anomalous
materials in the old Roswell UFO photos.
I have resisted all such interviews and have not
posed for any photos. I have been urged to write "my
story" and so have done so. I am sending it to you
as background for use in any coverage that you might want
to give to this breaking story. Ron Regehr, who is so
much more qualified to discuss the technical aspects of
these new developments, has kindly volunteered to handle
media requests for interviews. Thank you.

AIR FORCE GENERAL ABSOLVED OF 50 YEAR ROSWELL UFO HOAX CHARGES DUE TO EFFORTS OF TWO RETIRED OFFICERS
Two "old warriors" through the application of
modern technology techniques have uncovered new details
in half-century old photographs that vindicate a former
fellow retired officer long-accused of hiding evidence of
a crashed UFO.
George Filer (Maj. USAF, Ret.), an officer of the Air Force
Association of New Jersey, recently became aware that the
late Lt. Gen. Roger M.Rameys widow who resides in
Denton, Texas, continues to suffer from long-standing
hoax allegations against her late husband.
For 20 years, many have accused General Ramey of single-handedly
deceiving fellow officers, the press, and the American
public, when he allegedly took action to swap the real
Roswell crash wreckage with a carefully destroyed weather
Proponents have argued that Gen. Ramey put the weather balloon
debris on display in his office on July 8, 1947, and even
posed for photographs with the "decoy" while
the "real" crashed flying saucer was on an
aircraft bound either for Wright Field, Ohio, or
Washington, DCdepending upon the story.
Filer then contacted James Bond Johnson (Col. USA, Ret.), the man
who actually photographed the debris more than 50 years
ago. Bond (as he prefers to be called) related from his
home in Long Beach, CA, how he not only photographed the
debris, but that he unwrapped the burned "junk"
as he called it, arranged it, and posed the subjects,
Gen. Ramey,Col. Dubose, and Maj. Marcel, in General
Rameys office, HQ 8th AF, Fort Worth, TX.
Details revealed in Bonds photographs are the heart of
recent revelations that absolve Gen. Ramey of any
wrongdoing. A recent USAF report does not match the
detailed examination of the digitally enlarged
photographs which reveal I-beams, foil, a pile of burnt
material, a "plastic" strip, and strange
markingsall characteristics detailed by the only
other living witness of the debris, Dr. Jesse Marcel,
Jr., son of the late Maj. Jesse Marcel, Sr., the former
intelligence officer at Roswell Army Air Field.
"This dramatic revelation of markings on one of the
beams exonerates GEN Ramey, whose widow and
children have suffered the indignities of defending the
honor of their late husband and father long enough,"
