I grew up in Roswell...kinda interesting
I have crazy insomnia, so I thought I'd share something cool with you guys while I'm busy not sleeping:

I lived in Roswell throughout my childhood and had a pretty run-of-the-mill upbringing in a smallish town. I had never even heard of the "incident" until I was in high school. At that point it seems the city leaders decided that inducing alien mania would help with tourism, so now there's the annual alien festival, at least 2 alien museums on Main Street (last time I checked), an alien McDonalds, aliens on the windows at Wallmart...but I digress.

My dad was a doctor in town for a long time and many of his patients were elderly (fun fact: Roswell is also a booming retirement community). One particular guy he cared for for a lot of years ended up with terminal cancer. Apparently toward the end he got loose-lipped and told my dad that he was enlisted at Walker AFB (I think it was still called the Army Air Field at the time) in the 40s. He was there when it happened and told my dad all about it. My dad wouldn't go into a lot of detail because he couldn't break confidentiality, but he told me that according to this guy there were definitely otherworldly beings involved.

My father is a conservative, Christian man and it shook him to the core. We'd all pretty much dismissed the whole thing as a weather balloon gone wrong, but needless to say we're all believers now.

I can't back any of this up and wouldn't give names even if I knew them. I just thought you guys might find it interesting.

One last thing: Roswell is NOTHING like the TV show.

Re: I grew up in Roswell...kinda interesting
I've been to Roswell. It's an awesome little town in the middle of nowhere. I love the alien street lights. Been to the museum and the alien shop next door. There is a meteorite sprew field near by that I really wanted to visit, but no time. Looks like the perfect retirement place, clean, tidy with plenty to do and nice weather.

I meant the actual town doesn't look like the show set. It's a pretty standard medium-sized (for NM) town, but most of the downtown alien-themed stuff is very T-shirt shop type touristy and not very quaint. Not a bad town at all, just not like the TV show.

I agree! My parents don't live there any more but a lot of my husband's family is still there so we visit once or twice a year. The only real problem with the weather is the wind in the spring that kicks up the dust...otherwise it's a great place.

2, What happened at the Roswell UFO crash incident?
Quoting: Love Muffin

I am pretty sure that 2 saucers or ET craft crashed and 5 ET's wer recovered. They were what is known as Grays. They were not J-Rods as some would have you believe. One or two of them were alive and each lived for several years.

I'm still not convinced; seeing as the German's were working on disc craft going all the way back to 1922, and there are exotic propulsion craft designs going back 117 years in the United States Patent Office.

Why would it shake a Christian to the core? doesn't he know the aliens are nothing more than fallen angel spirits inhabiting a lab grown body?

If he's really a Christian, he should know all that already.

Lol...my mom and dad both grew up in teeny tiny little towns in NM (populations 200 and 300 respectively) and received their religious and philosophical educations mainly in their Baptist churches. I remember visiting my grandparents when I was a kid and going to their church's Sunday school. I wanted to know why the Bible talks about drinking wine all the time but the church says alcohol is bad. They lied and told me that wine back then was the same as grape juice now. You can imagine what they had to say about things like aliens!

You'll be in good company! There are a LOT of backpackers that go through Roswell. Be aware, though, it does get pretty cold there in the winter. They usually get a couple of good snowstorms a year and it freezes or frosts most nights. If you go tenting, be prepared!

I've been watching the Sunday morning commentary on how the supercommittee is destined for failure. Enough doom and gloom for a beautiful morning: conspiracy is a lot more fun!

Since there was such a positive response to my original post, I thought I'd share a few more interesting things about Roswell and its history.

Roswell is surrounded by 12 empty Altas F missle silos. As far as I know, they're all privately owned and the the ones I've visited have been on rural ranch land. Of course, when they were disarmed they sealed the entrances, but when I was a teenager we discovered that a couple of them had been opened (one had a hole blowtorched into the door just big enough for a slender person). Some of my friends and I snuck down into one of them one night and looked around with flashlights. Despite a whole lot of graffiti, it was a really cool look into the cold war. I've heard that people are buying them up and turning them into personal bunkers/homes. I love that idea!

Speaking of personal bunkers, Roswell is chock full of them. The New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) is there and from what I've been told over the years, the school was a suspected cold war target. Many of the older homes in Roswell have small underground shelters in their backyards. I used to babysit for a family that had one of them and their kids would play "nuclear war" in it.

hiding2

There's two high schools in town, Roswell High and Goddard High (named after Robert Goddard, the rocket pioneer). Goddard's classrooms are entirely underground. That's right: no windows in the classrooms at all, just one giant fallout shelter.

Believe it or not, I've never been out to the crash site. I've heard that there's no need: the rancher who owns it charges to go look at a pile of rocks. Maybe someday I'll take my kids out there just to see for myself.

If anybody has questions, feel free to ask...I'll be happy to answer if I can!

Re: I grew up in Roswell...kinda interesting
I have something to add to this story.

My husband opened up a Chiropractic office in ABQ NM in 1987 and sometimes I helped at the front desk. One day I was reading the Roswell Incident at work. There was this mature older woman that was a patient who came in every week. She saw me reading the book and said she had been working in Roswell during the incident....some kind of office work. Then she related that a stretcher went by in the hall and she saw a grey dead alien which wasn't covered.

Fell off my chair. I didn't sleep for weeks. This lady was not the kind of person to lie. I'm sure they never intended her to see it.
