(1) My name is L. M. Hall
(2) My address is: XXXXXXXXXX
(3) I am ( ) employed as: _________________________________ (x) retired,
(4) I came to Roswell, New Mexico, in 1943, while serving in the Army Air Force. I was a military policeman and investigator at Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF). In 1946, after being discharged from the service, I joined the Roswell Police Department, and in 1964 I was appointed chief of police, serving for 14 and a half years. I am now a member of the Roswell City Council.
(5) In 1947, I was a motorcycle office, with patrol duty on South Main Street, between town and RAAF. I and other police officers would often take our breaks in the small lounge at the Ballard Funeral Home at 910 South Main, where Glenn Dennis worked. I had gotten to know Glenn when I was a base MP because he made ambulance calls to the base under a contract Ballard’s had, so I would sometimes have coffee with him if he was at work when I stopped in.
(6) One day in July 1947, I was at Ballard’s on a break, and Glenn and I were in the driveway “batting the breeze.” I was sitting on my motorcycle, and Glenn stood nearby. He remarked, “I had a funny call from the base. They wanted to know if we had several baby caskets.” Then he started laughing and said, “I asked what for, and they said they wanted to bury [or ship] those aliens,” something to that effect. I thought it was one of those “gotcha” jokes, so I didn’t bite. He never said anything else about it, and I didn’t either.
(7) I believe our conversation took place couple of days after the stories about a crashed flying saucer appeared in the Roswell papers.
(8) I have not been paid or given anything of value to make this statement, which is the truth to the best of my recollection.
