We’ve always maintained that our removal from the car had a human quantity to it. With that, we’ve NEVER used the term Abduction, and for that reason.
Contrary to the many sloppy and childish reporters, who also wrote Reed installed the monument when it was in fact, the Sheffield Town Hall.
We have been sincere in our retelling, passed polygraph tests, and interviewed with four body language experts. The incident was observed by over 250 locals (Not 40) and aired live on WSBS Radio in 1969. It was also cited at the United Nations in support of GA 33/426 on October 2nd, 1992. My late father an Attorney and Politician would also lose his life on October 2nd.
Our Incident and Diner had ties to the space race and the goodwill message placed on the moon. State historians officially arrived the incident as historically true, that letter came with two citations via the Governor’s office, also affirming its place in US history.
The nonjudgmental UFO Park in Sheffield is an extension of our family’s Diner.
A place to meet and gather with other like-minded individuals.

We were, part of something extraordinary
Among people who follow the subject of UFOs, there has long been speculation about when "disclosure" will happen. By "disclosure" they mean official government recognition that UFOs or to use the alternative term, UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena) are real and prove that we are not alone in the universe. "Disclosure", they believe, will settle once and for all the question of whether we have been contacted by life from elsewhere. One could argue that the induction into official state records by the Great Barrington MA historical society and subsequently Massachusetts Governor Charles D Baker of the "off-world incident" of the Reed family in Sheffield Massachusetts on the evening of September 1, 1969, marks the beginning of this long-awaited official recognition.
On February 6, 2015, The Great Barrington Historical Society inducted this event into the state's official archives with the following words: "The Historical Society in Massachusetts has formerly and officially inducted the first off-world UFO case in US history. The historical society confirms that the Reed off-world incident is historically significant and true and warrants induction." In November, the governor issued the following citation to Thomas Reed:
Thomas E. Reed
ON BEHALF OF THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS, I AM PLEASED TO CONFER UPON YOU THIS GOVERNOR'S CITATION IN RECOGNITION OF THE OFF-WORLD INCIDENT ON SEPTEMBER 1st, 1969, WHICH ENGAGED THE REED FAMILY, WHICH HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED. YOUR DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE INCIDENT WAS FACTUALLY UPHELD, FOUNDED, AND DEEMED HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT AND TRUE BY MEANS OF MASSACHUSETTS HISTORIANS. THE RECORDS HIGHLIGHTING THE HISTORIC EVENT ARE NOW OFFICIALLY PART OF THE GREAT BARRINGTON, MA HISTORICAL COLLECTION AND YOUR RECENT INDUCTION INTO MASSACHUSETTS HISTORY.
THIS THIRD DAY OF NOVEMBER IN THE YEAR 2015

Explanation. Irresponsible journalism has misrepresented the details regarding the October Citation. A prejudice reporter, Mr. Cowgill ran an article implying it was written in error. The facts are, the October Citation was missing the date of occurrence, and then corrected by the Governor’s office and reissued in October. (Cowgill was in position of both Citations)
Historical Society Officially Inducted the First Off-World (UFO) Case in United States History
Thom's late father Dr. Howard Reed was in public office and a prominent Attorney. Unfortunately the footage filmed with the Limousine was cut from the episode. Oddly Dr. Howard W. Reed would loose his life on the 2nd of October, the same day the Reed's UFO incident was mentioned at the United Nations. There is a display featuring Dr. Howard Reed and the UFO incident in the International UFO Museum
