Guest Speaker:
William Reed

William Reed lives with his wife of 42 years in Loomis, California. He was raised in Ridgefield, Connecticut, where he developed a fascination with history as a boy while playing in cemeteries throughout the communities where he lived in the Eastern part of the United States. Intrigued by head stones and monuments as well as stories related by his uncle, who was a Tuskegee Airmen, William developed a desire to learn more about the heroes and patriots that helped form our nation. In the process, he also learned more about American history and the contribution of black Americans. This interest helped him realize that the knowledge of history must be studied and shared to help all better understand this great nation in which we live.

He served in the US Navy from 1964 to 1974 as an air intelligence officer including three years in Viet Nam and four years at the National Intelligence Center in Washington D. C.

William received a BA in psychology from University of Maryland, and PHD from Fairfield University. He worked as a Social and Industrial Organization Psychologist for E. I. Dupont. He retired in 1990 but has not remained idle.

Raising an adult son, who was diagnosed with autism as a child 40 years ago, has given William and his wife an appreciation for the importance of domestic workers. Since his diagnosis William has devoted himself to learning about autism and has served as a mentor to countless parents of autistic children.

In 2005 he began to serve as a volunteer in the United Domestic Workers of California and is currently serving as its Secretary-Treasurer. He also represents UDW on the Executive Board of the Sacramento Central Labor Council and advocates for caregivers and social justice.

William also works part time as a volunteer for Placer County In Home Support Services.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
