This is the only book written by an eyewitness to the Incident. Few are left who "were there," to give firsthand accounts. In general, researchers have accurately reported portions of the "Roswell Incident," but some have sensationalized and falsified many aspects of it. Knowing of these distortions of the truth prompted Shirkey to write down what he knows. This book is factual and an accurate accouting of those shocking eight days in early July, 1947.

Robert J. Shirkey was born and reared in Schenectady, N.Y. He was accepted into the USAAF on Dec. 10, 1942. After completing Advanced Flying School he was trained as a B-17 pilot and later at Roswell in B-29's. In the spring of 1947 he was nominated for promotion to Captain and assigned as Assistant Group Operations Officer of the 509th Bomb Group. Following military service Bob pursued various flying jobs among other opportunities. He now teaches industrial safety courses at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell.Review:
This book gives a factual account not a fictional account designed to sell books. I WAS THERE is an excellent source; creditable and revealing. It reveals data by two actual military eye witnesses. The two saw the craft, debris, and much more. This book contains several "new" fascinating pieces of the puzzle. It is a must read for those interested in the Roswell Incident. -- Ronald Phillips, former long time board member, International UFO Museum & Research Center, Roswell, NM
