Noted Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca has been looking, for a while now, at the 1964 Socorro “UFO” sighting which is currently on tap at Kevin Randle's site [kevinrandle.blogspot.com] where the insignia/symbol is being discussed.
As many of you know, that symbol has been a prime interest to me (as it is to Jose, and Kevin too).
For me, it is the “smoking gun” that will source the object seen and reported by police officer Lonnie Zamora.
In Jose's diligent pursuit of a meaning for the Zamora/Socorro event, he was able to get comment from Richard Holder Jr., son of Captain Richard Holder Sr. who, allegedly, had Officer Zamora alter a drawing of the Socorro symbol to prevent copycat “UFO witnesses” from using the drawing (recreation) of the symbol in a hoax attempt.
That rationale for altering the drawing eludes me. This is a photo of AF Captain Holder, Sr.:
Richard Holder Jr. has responded to Jose and Ray Stanford, the first ufologist to approach the sighting in 1964, writing an oddly named book that has become the “bible” (to many) for the 1964 event.
Here's Mr. Stanford's take on the matter, at Frank Warren's UFO Chronicles web-site.
While Holder Jr. doesn't wish to get embroiled, publicly, in the symbol brouhaha, I won't include his missive to Jose Caravaca, except to quote the last paragraph, which should enthuse UFO buffs to get at the matter if they see Holder Jr.'s comment as significant:
