My strongest memory of Steve was when he was my FTO when I transitioned from the jail to the road in 2001. I was scheduled to be assigned to District 1, but did one tour in District 8 with Steve as my FTO. He found out I spoke Spanish and poof, just like that, I was assigned to D8. I initially resented the shanghai, but it turned out that I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Thanks, Steve.
