There was so much [debris at Roswell]. It was scattered over such a vast area [12 football fields]. We found a piece of metal, about a foot and a half or two feet wide, about two to three feet long, felt like it had nothing in your hands. It wasn’t any thicker than the foil out of a pack of cigarettes. The thing that got me is that you couldn’t even bend it, you couldn’t dent it, even a sledge hammer would bounce off of it… All I could do was keep my mouth shut. Being an intelligence officer I was familiar with every, just about all the materials used in aircraft, and in air travel, this was nothing like that. It was not anything from this earth, that I am quite sure of.
