[Non-Subscriber Post]

To whom it may concern,

Alot of you have noticed my name on many emails that have come
from Robert A.M. Stephens since he entered the UFO field back on
10-16-1998. I wanted to take this time to confirm a few things
as true that Robert has been accused of falsifying. They need to
be clarified now since the information he has offered to the UFO
communtiy has been shown to be true over the time he has been
involved pertinet to the UFO subject. A few more minor items
need to be verified as well. His reluctance to reveal details
about his service to this nation are his perogative. I'm
countering his wishes a little here under the circumstances. His
military record I am most confident will not be available in the
public view.

#1. Larry Mauk, NASA-Kennedy Space Center, Florida, is a real
person. I have met him, I have had dinner with him. Robert and
Larry go back to 1982 as pretty close friends and associates
with the agency. He was in large part responsible for getting me
my job at NASA.

#2. Robert was in the Seals. I have seen the paperwork, I have
seen the pictures of him with his team. I can not elaborate
more, but I am sure of this.

#3. Robert does have access to what he says he does. One does
not have the badges he has without a very thorough security
check. While I worked at NASA I had the lowest clearance that
there was, Robert was much nearer the top, if my memory serves
me he was one of a few who had direct access to the shuttle and
anywhere on any center he wished to go---even the most snesitive
areas at the various top secret air facilities and test beds. He
had also gone through pre astronaut training for the artist in
space project..

#4. Robert is who he says he is. To my knowledge he does not,
nor has he ever worked for NASA. He has always remained a
contractor by choice though NASA has courted him at times to
come onboard. He is a painter of world renown. I have seen his
work, I have seen the press clippings. He was even covered in my
local paper while he visited me. He also is and has done all
sorts of work for the various vendors associated with STS and
NASA. He continues to do this work by choice from his rural home
out in Montana. At times he does travel on NASA assignments and
other directives.

All of the above is true. I can and would verify anywhere,
anytime. I have known Robert for more than 15 years. I have
never known him to fabricate anything about himself because in
truth he does not need to.

His disavowing of himself in that interview where he calls
himself 'Fraud' was his own ruse, I believe, if anyone cared
to think,  to show that everyone in this peculiar discipline
online should be watchful of sensationalized claims. Sometimes,
we can over look fact when we are assailed with fiction. Your
UFO field online is a harbinger of some fiction.
