Richard Stephenson was born in 1975 in Denison, TX and spent his childhood in North Texas. In 1992, he graduated high school after only three years. He then pursued his degree at Oklahoma Christian University, once again accomplishing the task in three years. Richard then married his best friend before going off to basic training to be a military policeman with the US Army. With his new wife joining the adventure, they spent the next four years at Fort Polk, LA and had two children. Richard was promoted to an NCO and became a Squad Leader and Patrol Supervisor. In 1999, he held the distinction of being a member of the last military unit on the Panama Canal before it was shut down in the fall of 1999. Richard then went on to Federal Law Enforcement, graduating with honors from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, with distinction in firearms qualification. Richard currently lives in Southeast Texas with his family where he is working something very top secret. Why haven't I published anything in four years? Well, stay tuned!
