Does extraterrestrial life exist? Have alien beings actually visited Earth and, indeed, left clear traces of their visits? One man has the answer…and his son can now break the silence.

The Roswell Legacy is the story of Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer for the 509th Bomber Group (famous for dropping the atomic bomb on Japan), and the first military officer to reach the scene of one of the most famous and enduring UFO events in the recorded history of mankind. This book docments the recovery of debris from the crash of an extraterrestrial craft and how the Marcel family became forever linked to the event. It details what the debris looked like, how it greatly differed from that of the “weather balloon” that was supposedly recovered, and the physical characteristics that prove it could have only come from a technology that was not available in the 1940s (or, perhaps, even now).

Born August 30, 1936 in Houston, Texas, Marcel is a retired military officer who served as a medical officer in the United States Navy. He joined the Navy in 1962 just in time to participate in the Cuban Missile Crisis by serving onboard a troop transport ship. Prior to joining the Navy, Marcel attended Louisiana State University, School of Medicine, graduating in 1961. While in the Navy he received specialty training in Otolaryngology, and upon leaving the Navy in 1971 opened a medical practice in Helena, Montana. Eventually, he joined the Montana National Guard as a medical officer and earned his Flight Surgeon Wings at Ft. Rucker, Alabama. During his career in the National Guard, Marcel was appointed State Surgeon of Montana. After retiring from the military, the Iraqi war (Operation Iraqi Freedom) required his return to active duty in September 2004. At age 69, he spent 13 months as a flight surgeon for the 189th Helicopter Battalion in Iraq, where he flew more than 225 combat hours in a Blackhawk helicopter.
