General Marshall Concluded Wreckage was from interplanetary origin

Prior to Roswell and the ensuing cover-up, one of the most respected and highest military authorities in 1942 reported finding wreckage of interplanetary origin.

On March 5, 1942, George C. Marshall wrote a top-secret memo to the President, which stated:

Gen. George Marshall

...regarding the air raid over Los Angeles it was learned by Army G2 that Rear Admiral Anderson recovered an unidentified airplane off the coast of California with no bearing on conventional explanation... This Headquarters has come to the determination that the mystery airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret intelligence sources they are in all probability of interplanetary origin....

As a consequence I have issued orders to Army G2 that a special intelligence unit be created to further investigate the phenomenon and report any significant connection between recent incidents and those collected by the director the office of Coordinator of Information.


The memo bears correct Office of Chief of Staff (OCS) file numbers and has "Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit" (IPU) typed on it at a later time by a different typewriter. It is logical to believe that this is the order that sets up the IPU.
