Kevin,

Hasn't this situation ever struck you as, uh, well, a bit, shall
we say...incongruous?

I mean, here's the most classified secret in the history of the
world, the greatest moment in human life -- and only a handful
of dedicated men sworn to secrecy know the truth. How then, pray
tell, did the public at large ever learn of it?

This Band of Brothers doesn't know you, Friedman, Schmitt,
Berliner or any other journalist or ufologist from Joe or Adam,
and practically all you've got to do is show up in person, pen
and paper or videocamera in hand, and they seem only too willing
to spill the beans on the world's best kept (sic) Top Secret to
a complete outsider.

I may be exaggerating a little for rhetorical effect, of course,
but I've always been curious as to how you've managed to
reconcile this apparent contradiction in your mind?

As for saying this tightly knit band wouldn't talk amongst
itself, but apparently had little compunction against talking to
a perfect stranger... well, we all like to have our cake and eat
it, too.

I guess we should be thankful that, when the chips were down and
the press came calling, they really couldn't keep a secret,
after all. Makes you wonder whether or not they served alcohol
at all those reunions, doesn't it?
