To the crew and all connected to the good ship USS Savage DE/DER386.
Congratulations on your reunion and for making it through life this far.
Also, a salute, a "well done," and deep respect for your service to our beloved country. My family and I are tremendously grateful for what the ships crew and families - those who have passed and those still living - have sacrificed for our nation.
I was a child during World War II when the Savage was built at Brown Shipyard in Houston, where I grew up. We were proud when she was launched and have been proud of her ever since.
Have a good time.
Good luck. Godspeed.
