Liam,
From the first time I met you at the hill I knew you were gonna be a sh!t pump…but man was I wrong! Congrats on an amazing career and thank you for all the support and leadership you have provided me and the rest of the soldiers that had the honour of serving with you.

All the best and keep in touch!

Steve
