The REAL Red UFO Emblem
Ever since I told the truth about what red emblem Lonnie Zamora actually saw on the side of the object on April 24, 1964, in my eulogy to him, certain 'Johnny-Come-Lately' pretenders have been declaring that I took advantage of Lonnie Zamora's death to create a lie about what was actually seen by him on the side of the object.
That's ridiculous. In fact, I had discussed that exact matter, in some depth, via Appendix of my 1976 book, "Socorro Saucer in A Pentagon Pantry," pages 206 - 211, which I sent to Zamora in 1976, and which he passed on to his daughter, telling her that I "was the only writer who got everything right."
In the book, I had held off telling the full story because of concern for Lonnie Zamora who, in supplying a substitute emblem instead of the real one, was merely doing what he felt was his patriotic duty. All that was explained in the eulogy.
The Associated Press article out of Socorro on Thursday, April 30, 1964, as carried in the San Antonio Express on page 8-A that day (See copy below.), should reinforce the fact that those who have accused me of making up the story about "the inverted V with three lines across it" are themselves ignorant pretenders and deceivers.
