There have always been whistleblowers of UFOs and the alien phenomenon even before the Internet Age. This is the case with Philip J. Corso, who claimed to be a former Pentagon officer and was either lucky or cursed to witness the bodies of dead aliens. Philip James Corso was an officer in the US Army. He served in the United States Army from February 23, 1942 to March 1, 1963 and earned the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Corso published The Day After Roswell in 1997 about his alleged involvement in researching extraterrestrial technology recovered from the Roswell Incident of 1947.
On July 23, 1997 he was a guest on the popular nighttime radio show Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell, where spoke live about his history in Roswell. Corso died of a heart attack less than a year later.
He says he actually saw the body of a dead alien retrieved from the Roswell wreckage in 1947. For more than 50 years the world has been captivated by the Roswell incident, and Colonel Philip Corso a now deceased retired US Army officer left it behind. in the details of what he saw in 1947 in Fort Riley, Kansas.
He was the highest-ranking official to give details of the famous New Mexico accident.
He claimed that the New Mexico wreckage was definitely not from a balloon, but from an alien spacecraft. While the Roswell case often receives the occasional blow from witnesses whose claims are discredited or from the forgery of Santilli’s infamous autopsy film, it always returns to the forefront of ufology.
Corso not only claimed to have seen an alien body from Roswell, but also secret Pentagon files on the incident. He said the Pentagon sent the bodies of the aliens to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. where they performed autopsies on the dead aliens. He also tells us that American officials were baffled by the extraordinary technological marvels of the alien craft.
Different parts of the Roswell spacecraft were sent to various defense companies, who reverse-engineered their properties. This engineering feat eventually led to a number of breakthroughs. This includes integrated circuits, night vision equipment, lasers, particle beams and optical fibers. Contractors were informed that the parts were stolen from Russia.

He also claims that the government cover-up was not only to hide the truth about extraterrestrial intelligence from the public, but also to allow the reverse engineering process to be protected from foreign countries, especially Russian ones.
In his book Corso he stated,
“No one wanted to take second place in the silent and unrecognized race of alien technology development at the Pentagon as each service silently pursues its version of a Roswell secret weapon.”
Corso’s first discovery of the vast “top secret” candy box came when he was stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas in July 1947. He became curious about a stash of sealed boxes being stored in a high-security area of the base. Unable to contain the urge to investigate the secrets inside, he took a torch and opened one of the boxes. He was surprised at what he was looking at.

“The contents, enclosed in a thick glass container, were immersed in a thick, pale blue liquid. At first I thought it was a dead child that would be sent somewhere but this was not a child. It was a four-foot-long human-shaped figure with arms, strange-looking four-fingered hands, no thumb, slender legs and feet, and a head shaped like an incandescent light bulb that seemed to float above a balloon gondola like its chin. I had the urge to touch the pale gray skin. But I couldn’t tell if it was fur because it also looked like a very thin fabric in a head-to-toe piece that covered the creature’s flesh. ”
Corso’s description of the body is very similar to what other Roswell witnesses described of the aliens.

Although some researchers reject Corso’s claims, there can be no doubt about his credentials.
After joining the Army in 1942, he served in Army Intelligence Europe.
During the Korean War, he continued his intelligence duties under General Douglas MacArthur.
Corso died of a heart attack at approximately 11:15 pm EDT on Thursday, July 16, 1998. He was 83 years old.
