Roswell is a city located in the state of New Mexico.
Agent Phil Coulson, recently reassigned to New Mexico after realizing the true nature of a series of "atmospheric disturbances", gathered all S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel stationed at S.H.I.E.L.D Outpost in Roswell to brief them about the nature of their operation.
Personnel was assigned to perform vigilance and study on a site located about twenty miles outside of Puente Antiguo, and also to do intel reconnaissance within town limits, warning the agents about their need of civilism during their mission and resorting to the use of authority only when absolutely necessary. Coulson finished his speech reasserting his confidence that they would be able to manage the situation although they were not certain about what will be found on site.
