Overview

The incident involving his family and their 1960's Diner made United States history in 2015 becoming the 1st UFO related case to be officially inducted into state history as historically significant and true.

Following a polygraph exam, and archives by historians that confirmed the incident had altered the national progression of the area, the incident was publicly inducted by State and the Historical Society. This decision was celebrated by the unveiling of a 5000-pound monument with live coverage by ABC News NY. The incident and records are now rightfully part of the Historical Society's Collection. The Thom Reed UFO incident was selected as the S1 E1 launch of Discovery Channel's Alien Mysteries and the S1 E1 launch of Travel Channels Paranormal Paparazzi.

Reed has been the subject of six (6) documentaries and feature films, with guest appearances on the Fox Morning Show, and the Canada Morning Show.

His step-father, Dr. Howard Reed, an Attorney and Connecticut Politician, would legally adopt Reed.   From 1960 through 1962, Thom lived in the home of William Roosevelt, the grandson of President Roosevelt in Cherry Hills, Colorado. His mother, Nancy, and grandmother were employed by the Roosevelt’s with residence on the property. By 1963 Reed would move to a home in Sheffield, Massachusetts, just miles from the Barrington Horse Track. In this quaint Norman Rockwell setting, Thom and his family would undergo life-altering events. Due to Thom’s vulnerable age, these compounded encounters had an enormous impact, crushing his belief system, altering his reality, normalcy, and spirit. His recall of Sept 1, 1969, is one of an illuminated craft ascending from the water while exiting the Sheffield Bridge. Their car engulfed in light, weightlessness then a dead silence. An eruption of crickets and then Thom’s standing in an enormous open area reminiscent of an airplane hangar. Grabbed firmly on his left arm and walked to an area where cylinder shaped equipment was lowered from above. Now back in their station wagon, but his mother and grandmother's locations are reversed with his mother now in the passenger seat. The incident of September 1, 1969, made news on Barrington's WSBS Radio, as they and the local police department became flooded with reports of a disk-shaped object.
