  1. I would like to contact Gen. Steele.  I am a life coach and spiritual director and presently volunteering at Veterans2Industry and Veterati.  Dr. Mark Goulston recommended Gen. Steele as a resource so that I can pinpoint the needs of Vets who may be dealing with ongoing trauma, transitioning issues, and personal spirituality. Please contact me below or at 813-444-9641 in Carrollwood, Tampa.
