Senator Reed’s life has been about service – most importantly, service to the people of Rhode Island. We’re proud to endorse his candidacy.

In 1967, Senator John Pastore selected Reed for the United States Military Academy at West Point based on his leadership, community involvement, and achievement. Upon graduation in 1971, Reed earned a degree from the John F. Kennedy School of Government. He qualified as a United States Army Ranger and commanded paratroopers in the 82nd Airborne Division. After 8 years of active duty service, Reed attended Harvard Law School. He remained in the United States Army Reserve until 1991.
