Cpl Paul Alexander Steppe Jr

2017-8-21 Steepe

Paul enlisted in the Marines in 1950 and was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division. “Paul Steppe, a Marine infantry corporal serving in Korea, saw fierce action, punctuated by long nights when he and his foxhole buddies alternated two-hour watches. Wounded by a grenade on Christmas Eve 1951, Steppe was evacuated to a hospital, narrowly escaping death when his transport plane lost its landing gear on takeoff.”

We honor you, Paul Steepe.
