Before Steve left for Afghanistan, he pinned a quote to his brother's bulletin board.  It read, "To Live a Selfless Life."  This was his answer, when people asked him why he'd chosen Explosive Ordnance Disposal as his career field.  It was the way he lived his life, whether dealing with his family, friends, or complete strangers. To honor Steve’s legacy, the Dunning family has chosen to support the EOD Warrior Foundation.
