To Steve's Family
Steve and I were roommates at Pease AFB, in reality we were like brothers as we were on the same base police squad so we had the same days off so we drank together, chased the ladies together and just had a lot of time to talk about our lives and our dreams. I was discharged in November 1963 and so came home to Washington and Steve was sent for a one year duty assignment on the island of Shemya, AK. Steve got discharged there and on his way back to NY he stopped and stayed with me. He decided that he would go home and then move out here but evidently he must have met Kristine as I never saw him again. I've always wondered how his life was going so I would Google his name but up until yesterday I couldn't find anything. After reading the posts in this book I now know he must have had a good life because of all of the love expressed by his family. I send my condolences to you all and want you to know that he was always in my mind and will be there until I am called. This picture of Steve and I was in my album of my Air Force time and thought that you might enjoy.
