Curtis LeMay - Male, American, 1906-1990 Military pilot/strategist.
Before he retired as Chief of Staff of the Air Force in 1965, General LeMay became a symbol of the nation's air power through his combat experience in WWII and his leadership in building up the Strategic Air Command.
He participated in the B-17 mass flight to South America in 1938, pioneered air routes over the South Atlantic to Africa, and the North Atlantic to England.
He organized and trained the 305th Bombardment Group, developing formation procedures and bombing tactics; and led the Regensburg raid, a B-17 shuttle striking Germany and Africa during World War II.
He planned the B-29 air raids over Japan during World War II and organized the Berlin Airlift as commander of the U.S. Air Force in Europe.
In 1948, he assumed the command of the new SAC (Strategic Air Command) where he laid plans for the ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile).

The JFK Assassination Marked the End of the American Republic : Mathias Broeckers
These fakes were done at the Bethseda military hospital, where JFKs autopsy was supervised by Curtis LeMay, the Joint Air Force Chíef and one of JFKs keenest enemies.
He was at a fishing vacation when the Dallas shooting happened and flew to Washington immediately - not for any military emergency but to sit in the autopsy room - and smoking a cigar!
General Curtis LeMay, Joint Chief of the Air Force and one of the harshest opponents of JFKs peace politics, was present in the autopsy room in Bethseda, smoking a cigar!
I think his
presence was not by chance.
LeMay for 5 or 10 minutes. At 5:00 p.m., Vandenberg again went to see Symington, again with no details provided.
If true, then LeMay
dispatched Craigie in his
stead. As if this wasn't enough, Craigie also sat on the JRDB with Vannevar Bush. Further, on December 30, 1947, Craigie issued an order that would establish Project Sign as the first official investigative body tasked with examining UFO reports.
RAND reported directly to LeMay, the first AAF vice chief for R & D.
The previous day, Vandenberg
is also noted as meeting briefly with LeMay
on two occasions, one of them being noted "with reference to discs." The context, however, may indicate that this was in reference to a hoax disc recovery in Houston (the incident mentioned by the Air Force in their Roswell report).
During the morning of July 10, Vandenberg
met with Gen.
Symington's director of public relations, Stephen Leo. What was going on here? Perhaps this was connected to what happened next at 2:00 when a phone call was placed to a Colonel Hackett in Spokane. Vandenberg informed Hackett that they had received a call from the Houston Chronicle saying that flying disc had landed there with Hackett's name on it. Further, Hackett was told it was reported that he
had said his
people knew all about it and that a statement would be coming from Washington. Hackett denied knowing anything about it or saying anything, but had his
people call the Chronicle, telling them to contact the FBI
(Unrelated photo at right from 1948 shows Symington, LeMay
