The government cannot very well deny that there is or was such a memo because it was photographed in Ramey's hand. And after all this time, they cannot reasonably claim that it has any national security implications. I've taken a look at the enlargements of the memo, and the word "VICTIMS" is pretty clearly legible. The rest of the sentence is too blurry to make out if it really says "victims of the wreck," as some people think. Others have suggested the sentence might actually read "victims of the Major," possibly referring to people who were victims of a misconception about the nature of what was a weather balloon because of Major Marcel's faulty identification of it as a crashed disc. If a good copy of the memo itself could be forced out of the government, nobody would have to guess what it said.
