Roswell UFO Crash: 65th Anniversary

Above, the famous headline from the Roswell Daily Record.
Today is the 65th anniversary of the Roswell, New Mexico incident in which a UFO (later claimed to be a "weather balloon") crashed and was recovered.

Fox News posted an article on this and it reads in part:
Like Fox Mulder, some people still want to believe. 
On July 8, 1947, a crash in Roswell, N.M., was the spark that started UFO fever burning in the U.S. And for some, that passion is just as intense today as when they first learned that a crash in the desert had been labeled a UFO -- and quickly re-labeled a weather balloon by government officials. 
"It was not a damn weather balloon -- it was what it was billed when people first reported it," Chase Brandon, a 35-year CIA veteran, told the Huffington Post. 
His comments came on July 8, 2012 -- 65 years after the Roswell Daily Record newspaper ran a front page article claiming “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region.” "It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet, it crashed and I don't doubt for a second that the use of the word 'remains' and 'cadavers' was exactly what people were talking about." 
Brandon claims to have seen photographs and written material in a special section of CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., called the Historical Intelligence Collection that conclusively proved to his mind that the crash was alien.
I've always been intrigued by this subject. But my interest was greatly increased several years ago with what my late mother told me about ten years ago.

My great-uncle was head of the U.S. Army hospitals in the Southwest United States in the late-1940s. These included ones in New Mexico and he was there at the time. He told my mother years ago (he passed away in the early 1990s) that the original story of a UFO crashing near Roswell was true and alien bodies were recovered. The weather balloon story was a cover-story and was not true.

He was not the kind of man to spread b.s. If he said a UFO crashed and bodies were recovered, one could take his statement to the bank.
