This "revelation" of routine Roswell documents preserved for 50
years made me think of something: has anyone ever made an FOIA
request _explicitly_ for the memo General Ramey was photographed
holding at his "saucer-emptying" press conference?

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.
