"For almost four decades, duties of  the USS Savage rendered consistent and faithful service in the cause of peace and freedom.  Now her tour is over. 

May she continue to steam in the memories of the many who served aboard her in peace and war. 

We ask your protection and blessing upon the thousands who sailed in her as part of the Savage crew.

Enable her shipmates to contribute expertise and enthusiam developed aboard her to positions throughout the United States Navy and the world.

And when, like United States Ship Savage, our colors are struck and our logbook sealed, grant us safe haven, a 
peaceful harbor, and perfect peace ."  

Amen
