Deven grew up in a military family. His father and his brother both served in the United States Army. His brother, Erik, took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he suffered a catastrophic injury that rendered him quadriplegic. Promising to finish the job his brother started, Deven joined the Army, as well. But fate dealt its own hand to Deven.
