Steve served as an active duty Marine from 1990 to 1999. During that time he deployed to over a dozen NATO exercises in several different countries and climates. His time in the Corps was vital to helping him find direction as a young adult.
Since Steve received his honorable discharge, he has been “rolling his own” when it comes to day to day operations in life. He misses the camaraderie of his military days. Steve misses doing things that he was pretty sure he wouldn’t be able to accomplish. It is time for a “shake up” for old Steve…
Steve is married with four kiddos. They keep him on his toes and definitely challenge him as a parent. Steve also attends group treatment classes at the VA here in Portland for his PTSD and depression symptoms.Go back
