Sign near Helena warns people to brace for UFO disclosure
Great Falls Tribune
HELENA — Have you seen it? It’s out there, and maybe a little bit out of this world, and it’s waiting for you.
The Jesse A. Marcel Library (JAML) and Crop Circles Research Foundation near Montana City has placed this billboard along Highway 12 near Helena to call attention to the ongoing mystery of Unidentified Flying Objects.
“… something not from this world,” it quotes USS Nimitz pilot David Fravor.
“UFO disclosure is in progress. Get ready. Get informed” and it tells passersby to learn more online at www.jaml.org.
In a Dec. 18, 2017, story in The Washington Post, Fravor, a Navy commander and former pilot, said he saw a UFO in 2004 off the coast of California, and described it as a “Tic Tac” and it maneuvered in the air like nothing else he had ever seen.
“It was a real object, it exists and I saw it,” he told The Post.
Dr. Richard O’Connor, founder and director of JAML, told members in an email Friday that the sign should get 46,000 viewings a month. He said it is on Highway 12 and can only be seen by those traveling west, past the car dealerships. He has asked them to share photos of the sign with others.
He said the cost of the sign is $2,500 for six months and people can make donations online. He told members the first comment to his Facebook posting was “fake sign!”
Are UFOs real? It’s a topic that has gone under eternal debate. The magazine “Popular Mechanics” and online news website Politico reported in June that three senators received a classified Pentagon briefing about reported encounters by the Navy with unidentified aircraft.
President Donald Trump told ABC News that he has also been briefed on the reports.
“I did have one very brief meeting on it,” he said. “But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”
JAML serves as a UFO library and meeting place for those who want to learn more about UFOs and other possibly-related phenomena happening in the world today.
O’Connor said the object of the sign was not to primarily recruit more members, but to ultimately place the billboards in major cities to remind passersby “the UFO / UAP phenomenon is real and it merits their attention.”
“If this effort becomes successful we may entrain the attention of many, many people who will help us move this effort forward and thereby help accelerate UFO disclosure,” he wrote.
JAML is named for the late-Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr., perhaps best known for being a longtime physician in Helena. His father, a major, was sent by his base commander to investigate the crash of a UFO on a ranch outside of Roswell Army Air Field in 1947. He loaded some of the wreckage into his vehicle and drove it home to show Jesse Jr., who was then 10.
The U.S. Army Air Corps issued a press release saying a “flying saucer” was found, but public uproar forced them to retract the statement and say a weather balloon had been found instead.
Those who were at the crash site were then sworn to secrecy. But in the ‘70s Marcel Sr. and his son began speaking about what they had seen, believing the coverup was a grave injustice to the public.
