Case File for the Korean War
As a matter of policy, all firsthand live sightings remain classified while being analyzed or investigated. Once a sighting is resolved, the initial report and all associated documents are reviewed for declassification, and as appropriate, released. This is an unclassified listing of documents contained in DPMO's Generic Classified Information File.
The contents of the generic file are subject to change as new reports are received and integrated, and old reports are resolved, declassified, and normally released to the Library of Congress or National Archives. Whenever documents are added or deleted from the generic file, this unclassified list will be updated. Documents being withheld are undergoing a declassification review which started in June 2008.
