Former United States Army Officer Philip J. Corso served from 1942 until 1963. In those formative and important years, he found himself involved with extraterrestrial research.
In 1997, he published his memoir called "The Day After Roswell." He even went onto Coast To Coast AM, a radio show hosted by Art Bell. He went in-depth with his own personal Roswell story.
Most of his story revolves around the Roswell situation that happened in 1947. According to him, the wreckage was a spacecraft and not a weather balloon. He allegedly saw an alien body and read through confidential files about the Roswell incident.
Apparently, inventions like integrated circuitry, night vision, laser and particle beams, and fiber optics were all from the alien equipment recovered and investigated.
Part of his encounter reads:
“The contents, enclosed in a thick glass container, were submerged in a thick light blue liquid. At first, I thought it was a dead child they were shipping somewhere, but this was no child.
“It was a 4ft human-shaped figure with arms, bizarre-looking four-fingered hands — I didn’t see a thumb — thin legs and feet, and an oversized incandescent light bulb-shaped head that looked like it was floating over a balloon gondola for a chin.”
Corso passed away in 1998. He was 83.
