I will always honor LTC Green, he was a wonderful commander in the WYARNG. He was the one who preformed my enlistment ceremony in the field when I joined the WYARNG. He was a wonderful person. I had the highest respect for him. My prayers are with you all in his passing. He will be missed. I retired in 2001 as SFC.
Steve and I went on many training deployments with the Guard. A fine man who will be missed.
I served with Steve for a lot of years in the Wyoming Guard and considered him a friend during those years. I hadn't seen Steve since his retirement; I will always have great memories of him. Steve was a good man that I was fortunate to know. God Bless him and all his family, this world lost a good man. Blessings to all of you.

I am so sorry for the passing of Steve. He was (still is) a great man. He has fought a valiant fight and is finally free of this terrible disease and misery. My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time in your life. May God comfort you and your family and give you solace and peace.
Always upbeat and positive, not to mention an excellent dancer! He will be missed by all who knew him. I also knew him and the boys from the National Guard. May you find peace knowing that the physical pain is gone and he is free.
I am proud to have served with Steve in the WY ARNG for many years. He was an outstanding officer, and a great guy. I am very sorry for your loss, and my prayers are with you. I know Steve will always be in your heart, while watching over you. God bless.
