Steve speaks, reads, and writes Arabic, Farsi, and Korean and, along with Patricia Mosure, the president of Lee & Grant International, has co-authored “Learning Iraqi Arabic,” and “Foreign Correspondent,” the latest two of his 40 books.
From Ms. Devon Blaine of The Blaine Group, Beverly Hills, California, who commissioned Steve to speak before a professional organization:
“You were excellent this morning. Thank you so much for agreeing to speak. But you know you were very well received.
“One of our members made a special effort to come over to thank me. That says a lot. Thank you for making me look so good. Much appreciated.”
You will be inspired by Steve’s story. He was diagnosed by the Veterans Administration with a soft tissue sarcoma attacking his abdomen, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that can be caused by the Agent Orange used by the U.S. during the Vietnam War where Steve served with the Marine Corps infantry. Steve was operated on by seven VA doctors at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center. That superb VA team removed the sarcoma and rebuilt his abdominal wall.
Steve is 100% today and credits the VA for saving his life. He continues to serve his country by fighting terrorism, remembering the words of his Aunt Mabelle who raised him when he was a boy: “Stevie, the measure of a person is not how one acts when things are going well, but how one reacts to adversity.”
