Nevada long-term Sen. Harry Reid may have been the biggest proponent of UFO investigations the United States has ever seen. He was one of three senators involved with passing a 22 million-dollar black budget program for the investigation and study of UFO events and activities. Sen. Reid grew up literally in a shack in the Nevada desert town of Searchlight with no running water and an outhouse for a restroom. He had a deep fascination with UFOs and his dogged determination to uncover the truth, while hidden from public view, has been instrumental in where the subject of UFOs lies today. For more information on Sen. Reid and his history of UFO involvement we have this fantastic article written by Sen. Reid himself and you can find it HERE.
