We were just starting Second Phase in BUD/S. I was still 19 at the time (still a greenhorn to the Navy in general). Steve was practically an old man compared to most of the students in our class, having been in for ten years already and being a 1st Class Petty Officer. He was OUR old man that would get all the survivors through to graduation day!

Being still too young to get into any bars, my only outlet was the e-club (Gator Gardens if I recall) across the street on NAB Coronado. 19 year old hormones being what they are, my standards at the time were, shall we say, somewhat low. Lol!

I had managed to get one of the denizens of Gator Gardens to take me back to her house in Imperial Beach, the whole time thinking "man, I really hope no one I know is going to see me with this chick but the deed must be done."

I was just about to start putting my studley 19 year old tadpole moves on her, when through the door walks Steve with her equally piggish roommate! We swore each other to secrecy, took care of business, got a ride back to base and never spoke of it again! Lol!

Every time from here on that I hear the word "piggish" or even a joke about something along those lines I'll remember Steve the SEAL and chuckle at that.
