Roswell 1947 - Documents on the witnesses

Paul Brazel

(Paul BRAZEL).

Please, before asking any question or sending any comment or criticism, read this.


Paul Taylor Brazel (October 30, November 27, 1997) was one of the three sons of "Mack" Brazel, he was 28 years old at the time of the incident, and dies at 78 in his home.

He was born on the Brazel Ranch south of Carrizozo, New Mexico.

He mainly resided in Carrizozo, Lincoln County, New Mexico, USA, then Los Alamos, New Mexico, and in 1963 he moved to Bandon, Coos County, Oregon, USA.

He entered the U.S. Army in 1939 and was in the last commissioned cavalry at Fort Clark, Texas. He was also a veteran of World War II and fought in both the Japanese and German theaters.

He was married, had a child, and a member of the Eularosa Masonic Lodge for more than 50 years.

Interviews and public statements:

There are none.

Investigators notes and comments:

Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt:

These researchers said that one of the sons of "Mack" Brazel was Paul, who died in 1997. They say he was employed running a ranch in Texas for the same J. B. Foster that employed his father in 1947, but when interviewed he said he had no direct knowledge of the events.


These authors said in 2007 that during the disruption of the ranch activities by the army because of the incident, cattle and sheep had to be fed and watered, and horses needed tending. The troops assigned to the cleanup operation did not care about that, but Brazel's two older sons, after hearing about his disappearance, came to take care of the ranch. Unfortunately, his son Paul made the error of arriving first, during the military's occupation.

They say Paul was a rancher in Texas at that time and traveled some distance to help out his father, or to try to help.

The authors tell of their furstration as Paul Brazel would never discuss the situation with them, always telling he had absolutely nothing to say.

But finally, just before he passed away from cancer in 1995, he confessed one important concern as a rancher to his nephew Joe: "You know what always riled me even up to this day?" "Every time I tried to get to the main ranch house (10 miles from the debris field) to water the horses in all that summer heat, the damn Army forced me off the ranch. I tried again the next day and they still threw me off the property. I was sure they did nothing for any of the animals."


(In this source, the authors provide a picture of Mack Brazel with his two sons Paul and Bill.)

Anthony Bragalia:

Mac's son Paul Brazel (in a rare statement about the event) said that the military would not even allow them to water and feed their livestock during the recovery. According to Joe, his Uncle said, "You know what always riled me, even up to this day? Every time I tried to get to the main ranch house to water the horses in all that summer heat, the damn Army forced me off the ranch! I tried again the next day and they still threw me off our property. I was sure that they had done nothing for the animals."

Paul Brazel avoided discussion with Roswell researchers throughout his life. But in discussions with investigators Tom Carey and Don Schmitt, Paul's nephew related that Paul had arrived first to the ranch to take over affairs during their father's absence (as Mac was being interrogated by RAAF.) Property belonging to the Fosters was transgressed by military.
