John was introduced to Thom Reed by Mark Lavoie, an expert horticulturist with expertise in non profit organizations who has helped Thom with maintaining the UFO Park. John believes that the story of the Reed family's encounters is of great significance for our time, not just because so many witnesses have corroborated the events they have experienced, but also because of the family's perseverance and courage in the face of strange and sometimes threatening phenomena. They have stood by the truth even when doing so subjected them to unwarranted hostility from members of the community
