My Grandfather Witnessed a UFO in 1945

For 80 years, UFO and alien life has been covered up.

But recently, it was revealed that NASA hired two dozen theologians to figure out how religion and aliens mix. According to the NY Post, “That’s the question that NASA hopes theologians at the Center for Theological Inquiry (CTI) in Princeton, New Jersey, can answer, in a recent effort to understand how humans will react to news that intelligent life exists on other planets.”

If you think about it, this could be a bombshell reveal. And it has been buried in the news. Covid has overtaken all of the news. Why would NASA need to consult with theologians about how people would handle aliens if they don’t exist?

My questions and interest in the possibility of life on other planets began when my grandparents would tell stories of being stationed in Camp Albuquerque after WWII.

According to Wikipedia:

Camp Albuquerque was an American World War II POW camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico that housed Italian and German prisoners of war. From this branch camp, the POWs did mostly farm labor, from 1943 to 1946. Most of these POWs were transferred from Camp Roswell, which was a base or main POW camp for New Mexico. Camp Lordsburg, New Mexico, and Camp El Paso, Texas, were also base camps.”

Did you catch that? Many of the prisoners were transferred from Camp Roswell.

The Roswell incident is the 1947 recovery of balloon debris from a ranch near Corona, New Mexico by United States Army Air Forces officers from Roswell Army Air Field, and the conspiracy theories, decades later, claiming that the debris involved a flying saucer and that the truth had been covered up by the United States government.[1][2] On July 8, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field issued a press release stating that they had recovered a “flying disc”. The Army quickly retracted the statement and said instead that the crashed object was a conventional weather balloon.[1]

My grandfather was a prison guard and as he told it, he had been stationed in New Mexico until mid-1946 and he and other guards had witnessed UFOs.

This was BEFORE the Roswell incident. There was no reason for a regular person to think anything about aliens at that time. Aliens were not yet…
