Texas Governor Rick Perry Names Honorary Texan
Texas Governor Rick Perry has declared Earl Reginald Stevenson as an Honorary Texan
Austin, Texas (I-Newswire) February 8, 2013 - Texas Governor Rick Perry has commissioned Earl Reginald Stevenson as an Admiral in the Texas Navy and declared him an Honorary Texan and awarded Stevenson the Texas Gold Medal of Achievement.
Texas has had three navies. Two were for military might to protect the state and the latest being to preserve the memory of the past navies. Today one can be appointed by the governor of Texas as an Admiral in the Texas Navy. The First Texas Navy was established in 1835, and the Second Texas Navy was established in 1837. In 1958, Texas Governor Price Daniel re-activated the Second Texas Navy, thus establishing the Third Texas Navy with the purpose of "assuring the survival of Texas' Naval history, boundaries, water resources, and for the civil defense of Texas." In 1973, the Texas Legislature authorized the charter of the Texas Navy Association, Inc., as the official body to oversee the operation of the Texas Navy. Since a Texas Admiral is a government commission it meets all legal requirements.
Stevenson is a commissioned Colonel and life member of Mensa. He is also a close friend of actor, Johnny Depp and a direct descendant of John Stevenson, one of the first settlers at Jamestown, Virginia. Stevenson was recently nominated by legendary British rock icon Sir Cliff Richard for The Order of the British Empire to be bestowed by Her Majesty, The Queen. Stevenson is also a well-known friend of the late David Carradine, Jan-Michael Vincent, and former FEMA Director and Undersecretary of Homeland Security Michael D. Brown. Stevenson also holds a coveted Kukkiwon 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo.
