First, I am a geezer. My father, between WWII and Korea, was the Public Information Officer at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia - I'm pretty sure it was a Reserve position. I was born in 1948, and at some time shortly after I was born, my father was suddenly called to a meeting of PIOs at Wright Field in Ohio. My mother remembers it well, and both she and I asked my father many times what the meeting was about. We even accused him of participating in the cover-up of the Roswell space alien crash. He'd just get a sheepish grin and refuse to say anything. Unfortunately, he passed away a couple of years ago, taking whatever happened with him to the grave.
This doesn't prove anything, but I find it interesting that about a year after whatever happened in Roswell, the Air Force called in PIOs from across the country.
Probably not as good a story as the true fact that Al Gore was born at the end of March, 1948 - exactly nine months after the Roswell crash.
