The UFO Whistleblower
Joseph Capp

“…and I took it [piece of the spaceship] and I bent it and I twisted it and I laid it back down, and it went [sound] got right back to the same shape.”

Meet June Crain*

I am so tired of these two-handed bandits, these blog gurus who pontificate the truth from their computer thrones, who debunk UFOs with no regard for the human factor.
Here is my truth: June Crain was there.
June Crain had an “above top secret” clearance.
June Crain typed secret documents and took dictation for the scientists.
June Crain kept “the secrets” for 45 years.
What secrets did June Crain keep? June handled pieces from the Roswell crash, and was friends with the person who escorted the boxes of dead bodies by transport from New Mexico. Where could June have worked? June Crain worked at Wright-Patterson Air Base for over 10 years, 1942 to 1953. June’s friend, “Master Sergeant Clarence,” (she attended his wedding) escorted the alien bodies (not Japanese or German ‘aliens’) these were “little green men” to the base. June was there, watching, as the engineers almost rolled on the floor laughing about the balloon cover story. The new management is probably still laughing.

What were the details? June knew there were pieces of “space ships”; she personally handled the fragments. An Officer handed them to her. She tried to cut the piece or make a mark on it; she couldn’t do it. She wrinkled it all up and it would smooth out to its original shape. Although rather thick, it was almost weightless. Where did it come from? The military officer’s answer was “New Mexico”. You can bet if June handled a piece of the “space ship”, then the scientists were privy to much more. She took dictation from the “engineers” and scientists. She was one of the few who could understand their terminology. She was the fastest in dictation and typing of the support staff. They spoke of three crashes, for sure, all in New Mexico. At the time, the knowledge was treated as matter-of-fact. The scientists were obsessed with, and debated, the propulsion systems. They rolled their eyes and almost lost it over the Air force explanation.
The scientists and military liked June; she was pretty, smart, and took no bull. She started working at Wright Field when she was 17. Tough, she told one Colonel to “kiss her ass” when he tried to skirt some rules. She was also instrumental in catching a spy. What a woman! She disagreed with our historians on one character at Wight Field. But I have a sneaking suspicion June is right --and the historians are wrong. Read the entire interview on PDF, unless of course, you take to the notion that our historians, like UFO skeptics, are always right.

Character – June Crain forgot more about character than most of our web pontificators, including me, will ever know. Two bouts of Cancer, the death of a husband, almost lost a child to a drunk driver, and had financial problems to boot. So what did June do? She learned carpentry and built 15 homes for low income families. Later, when she retired, she continued to help her local community by raising the funds for the local library. This is a person, real, not some caricature designed by your local spin factory. I don’t know, today maybe that just doesn’t matter anymore.

For Fame - When June came forward, she came forward anonymously. She did this because the media and the Air Force made fun of the Roswell spaceship crash theory. She was getting very old and took it personally --perhaps because she personally handled a piece of the craft. Seven years later she came forward publicly. The second time she came forward, she did so because the Air Force cast aspersions on her esprit de corps, by claiming the alien bodies were parachute test dummies. June worked with the Parachute Corps at Wright Field, and she knew that was a lie. She loved those guys and watched one test where many soldiers died. This high-mortality test was kept secret. Even though seven years had passed, the story June first leaked remained the same. No matter what these skeptics and armchair quarterbacks like me say, some things are burned into your memory…you do not forget them. All of us regular folks know that.
I know our society and the media seem to believe that when you start getting old you should go “gentle into that good night” as Dylan Thomas put it. Thomas’ poem says, instead, we should “rage…against the dying of the light.”
There was no way June was going to go gently, or in silence.
I hope if anyone reads this blog about June, and the explanations from Balloon Nuts or alternate theories given fifty years after the fact, they’ll just take a moment to give June Crain --her unique story and her heroic life-- a second look. I doubt the skeptics will. They’re never wrong, you know.

The interview is at the link below (PDF) with the MUFON link. Even if you’re a non-believer, the intelligence history is rich and well worth the read.

*Jerome Clarkson, Senior Director of MUFON at the time, interviewed June Crain and verified her work and personal history. MUFON is an amazing organization made up of many volunteer members. I joined MUFON, and really enjoy the MUFON Journal with all the new cases of UFO experiences. Trained MUFON volunteers actually go and talk to the witnesses. What a novel idea.

  1. THe pdf file is well worth reading. It certainly sounds authentic with regard to how the government did business in those days. Compelling cooperation thru fear was the precursor to the coldwar paranoia that gripped the country in the 50's and beyond. The federal government became a huge entity during the coldwar, but before WWII they were not so large and monolithic, hence the story of Wright Patterson AFB not having a fence around it before Pearl Harbor.
    Project Causcasian is mentioned in this document - but no explanation
    of what it was. See
    which explains it as being a nuclear bomb test involving parachutes. This would jive with June's encounter with this project 's paperwork during her career there.

  2. I'm sure I'll get flamed for this comment but I find it hard to take anything I read seriously that has such spelling and grammatical errors. I don't mind if it's in a blog but if it is supposed to be a professional article, I need the spelling to be correct or I begin to wonder how good the information really is.

  3. Dear Report From The People:
    I admire your courage. Thanks for taking the time and risk involved in telling this amazing story! Next I'd like to offer a token of my gratitude. Extra harsh judgment is passed on those who go public about these controversial matters. Professional debunkers and spin-doctors will quickly slam bloggers whose work --no matter how important-- exhibits frequent errors in grammar and spelling. Glad to help you with these before you post, at no charge. I believe in you and would like to see your work make the best possible impact. J.B., San Francisco,

  4. Thank you for you comments I will work on my grammer and spelling. I hope my mistakes will not distract to much from the story. I wil do better.
    Thank to all
    Joseph Capp
    See Skeptics it wasn't so hard saying you made a mistake.

  5. Really good character study. I always wanted to know who the woman was in the photo. Your strong as she was.

  6. Dear Anonymous,
    She was a unique person totally dismissed by the skeptics. The truth of who she was speaks volumes of truth against those who say Roswell was a balloon. Someday, I hope this hero will be given the credit she desearves.

    Thank You
