Kudos & Kindness

I thought your readers would be interested in wonderful news about one of South Shore’s own.
In August 2008, my son Ryan Steiner re-enlisted for another four years, and I just received an e-mail from him that he has been promoted to corporal of our U.S. Marine Corps on Oct. 1.
Ryan was born and raised on the South Shore and graduated South Tahoe High School in June 2005.
He is currently deployed in Afghanistan and considers the South Shore his home no matter where he’s stationed.
He said people will come up to him and thank him for his service to his country. While he appreciates this greatly, he says, “Mom, it’s for you and my hometown first. My friends and family and my hometown are what I’m fighting for.”
Cpl. Ryan Steiner, USMC, should be back home in November or December.
