Symm McCord was born, raised and educated in the Augusta, Georgia area with two years of his senior college being spent at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. After his medical training at the Medical College of Georgia he was drafted as a physician into the U. S. Army Medical Corps and spent a year in the Republic of Vietnam. On returning to the U. S. from the army he went into private family practice until his retirement in 2006. Symm practiced medicine in Sylva, North Carolina, and Augusta and Grovetown in Georgia. The beginnings of the concept of The Challenge of JHWH began developing in his mind during July of 1947 after seeing the newspaper articles written about the Roswell, New Mexico incident and the sightings of Kenneth Arnold. Through the years he has read many of the research works which have been printed that solidified his thoughts about the subject. The recent Witness to Roswell written by Carey and Schmitt and its deathbed affidavit of Lt. Walter Haut who witness the craft and beings at Roswell was the final piece of evidence needed to confirm the existence of the alien presence.
