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.

                                                                        Yours truly,
                                                                        Dan Rather
