Tuesday FORUM, 5-1-12: "We Are Not Alone" w/sg Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr.

Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr. joins host David Twichell to share his personal experience in 1947 when his father woke him up in the middle of the night to show him the strange debris that was retrieved from a field near Roswell, NM. Was the material found from a downed "weather balloon" or an extraterrestrial craft? And why couldn't the most elite officers of the only nuclear base in the country at the time tell the difference? You be the judge. Dr. Marcel retired as a full bird Colonel in 2005 after serving his country as a flight surgeon for the 189th Attack Helicopter Battalion.
