      Asst. Awards Dir.
      Telephone: 843.303.7438

      Colonel Steve Rowe served in the U. S. Army for 26-plus years, retiring in February 2005. He held a variety of management and leadership positions in communications, recruiting, personnel and organizational development, major defense program development, Coalition building, and General Staff service.

      Steve’s continental U.S. duty locations included Fort Gordon (Augusta), Georgia; Raleigh, North Carolina; Fort Bragg (Fayetteville), North Carolina; Crystal City, Virginia (D. C. area); and MacDill Air Force Base (Tampa),Florida.

      His overseas assignments included Camp Colbern, Republic of Korea; NATO Southern Region HQ (Naples), Italy; NATO Central Region HQ (Brunssum), The Netherlands; and U. S. Army Pacific HQ, Fort Shafter (Oahu), Hawaii.

      He served in war zones with the XVIII Airborne Corps during the first Gulf War (1990-1991), with Multi-national NATO forces in Croatia/the Balkans (1996), and with U. S. Central Command HQ (USCENTCOM, 2001-2004), where he traveled to numerous nations in Southwest Asia and Africa in support of the Global War on Terrorism.

      Over a third of Steve’s eclectic career was spent in Joint or Combined/Coalition environments. From among more than a quarter-century of challenging and memorable duties, Steve considers his last two assignments as perhaps his most strategically valid. While at the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command he helped develop and document user requirements for the multi-billion dollar Nation Missile Defense program (the follow-on of the old Reagan-era “Star Wars” program). His last assignment was at USCENTCOM, the multi-service U.S. command directly responsible for military operations and engagement in the Central Asian States, the Arabian Peninsula, and Northeast Africa. He developed and implemented, at that headquarters, an integrated U.S. and Coalition strategic planning and assessment staff comprised of military officers from 20 nations, and served as its inaugural U.S. Deputy Director.

      Originally from Owensboro, Kentucky, Steve is a Distinguished Military Graduate of the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU). He has a bachelor’s degree from EKU, and a Masters from the University of Oklahoma.

      Steve is married to Sarah J. Barnhart, originally of Pamplico, South Carolina. She is an MUSC graduate, a practicing Physician Assistant, and is a U.S. Navy veteran of more than 26 years of dedicated service to her nation, as well. They live in Hidden Lakes subdivision, in beautiful Mt Pleasant.

      Steve is now a firmly entrenched, shrimp-n-grits, Low Country convert, and a full time realtor® in Prudential Carolina Real Estate’s Clements Ferry Road office. He prides himself in knowing that his consulting efforts and hard work on behalf of his clients help them to achieve a piece of the American Dream, right here in our little slice of heaven.
