Dear Mrs. Lorenzen:

This is in response to your letter of 19 July 1960 to the Secretary Of the Navy concerning a
report of an unidentified Flying object in the vicinity of Brazil. Your letter has been referred
to me for reply.

The U.S. Air Force has the primary responsibility for the Investigation, reporting and analysis
of the information and evidence Relating to unidentified flying objects. All naval activities Are
required to report information concerning possible sightings Of unidentified flying objects to the
nearest appropriate U.S. Air Force activity. All inquiries from other that U.S. Navy or Air
Force activities regarding unidentified flying objects are referred to the nearest appropriate
U.S. Air Force activity.

The Navy has made no evaluation or official public statement On the subject of unidentified
flying objects in the vicinity of Brazil. It would be improper for the Navy to make any public
comment concerning the internal affairs of any other country.
