Lt. Gen. Laurence C. Craigie's Promise to Truman
Reporter Billy Cox has just reported that there may have been yet
another General sent to
Roswell following the July 1947 crash. That General was Major
General L. C. Craigie. Although he never disclosed what he discovered,
according to his personal pilot, he promised then President Harry Truman that he
wouldn't talk about what occurred in Roswell. The official Truman calendar shows the
only times Truman met Craigie was at the presentation of the
Collier Trophy to
Craigie was also famous in that he sat on the JRDB which was headed up at the time by Dr. Vannevar Bush. Dr. Bush was described in a Top Secret Canadian memo as the head of a "small group looking into UFOs. The Research and development Board also had many other key figures on its board who have been tied into the original effort to coverup what was known about flying saucers in the late 1940s.
This follows the same pattern as Edwin Easley, who as Provost Marshall for the Army Air Force was in charge of security and clean-up at the Roswell site. His daughter Nancy Easley Johnson, stated on the July 1, 2003 Larry King Live Show that her father had promised not to talk about what had happened in Roswell after making a promise to President Truman. On his deathbed, Easley finally told his two daughters that he had seen "creatures" at the Roswell crash site.

Weird? Yes. Cover-up? No
The official biography of the late Lt. Gen. Laurence C. Craigie on the Air Force Web site describes him as the first American military pilot to fly a jet, and that he ended his distinguished career as commander of Allied Air Forces in Southern Europe in the 1950s.
But there’s no mention of what he did in December 1947 – issued an order establishing the first Air Force study of UFOs.
Craigie was USAF director of research and development when he authorized Project Sign, which ended in 1948, not long after Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg reportedly rejected analysts’ suggestions that the phenomena had extraterrestrial origins.
In January, 82-year-old Ellenton resident Ben Games told a UFO Group of Manatee audience that for a six-month period in 1947, he was Craigie’s personal pilot. And that in the summer of that year, Craigie had been dispatched by then-Deputy Chief of Air Staff for Research and Development Gen. Curtis LeMay to Roswell, N.M., to investigate what was being reported in the media as the crash of a flying saucer.
According to research done by majesticdocuments.com Lt. Gen C. Craigie had a famous UFO connection in 1947 as well as being rumored to have been at Roswell.
On 30 December 1947, Major General L. C. Craigie, Director of Research and Development, issued an order that would establish Project Sign as the investigative body tasked with examining UFO reports. It would be the role of Sign to: “… collect, collate, evaluate and distribute to interested government agencies and contractors all information concerning sightings and phenomena in the atmosphere which can be construed to be of concern to the national security.”
