This sounds similar to the unusual report that a nearby post
office was filled with intelligence agents also during this same
time frame. I have long thought that if anything strange really
took place in 1941 it likely happened to the south, nearer to
Charleston, MO,  about 30-miles from The Cape.

In January of 1941 sharecropper Lonnie Yowl found a 'Hitler
Bomb' on the Mississippi County farm he worked on. Yowel alerted
his boss, Carl Stopher, and they called the police. What was
thought to be a 'foreign weapon' was later explained to be a
weather balloon. In 1999, the late Mrs. Edna Stopher, wife of
Carl Stopher, recalled a 'plane crash' on the Stopher property
found by 'a black man'. She did not recall any weather balloon
situation but said it was a 'plane crash of some sort' and that
all kinds of people came out,' and without any prompting, she
also said: "it seemed like there was something secret about it."

And about 4-miles away from the 'Hitler Bomb' incident, in April
of 1942, another sharecropper - Mr. Albert Turner - was taken
aboard a submarine and given a tour by its occupants: a negro
leader and five little brown men. Afterward, Turner was taken to
St. Louis and held many days for questioning. He was released
and never again spoke of this incident, which was reported to be
a 'hoax' in local papers.

I talked with a Charleston, MO local who said that his father,
Mr. Raymond Marshall, a Gunnery Sgt. before WWII, was appointed
by the govt. to fill a "highly secretive undercover position"
working at the local Charleston, Missouri Post Office, with
three other people. Two others filling these positions were ex-
marines. Buddy Marshall, son of Raymond, said that the
postmaster, assistant postmaster and carrier were all
intelligence agents.
