IN HONOR OF MY BELOVED SON'S SERVICE TO AMERICA by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"

Today, November 10, 2007, my son, Dan, deployed for his Second Tour of Duty in Iraq. For the next 12 to 15 months, his beautiful new bride, Amber and her family, Dan's mother, Anna, his five brothers, Eddie, Michael, Tommy, Matthew and Scott, and I, will be praying every moment that God will guide him, protect him, and keep him safe from harm.

This is the child Anna sees and carries in her heart. When he was only 4 years old, he said to his mother,"Mom, you know some day I'm going to have to leave you." Anna, faced with the future, said, "Yes, but not now."

This is NOW!

My third oldest son, Tommy, a U.S. Army Major, with the 82nd Airborne, also a Bronze Star recipient, is deploying to Iraq, this week. for the third time.

My youngest son, Scott, a NJ National Guard Infantryman, SP4, has just returned from Iraq.

In May 2010, Dan will deploy for a third time, this time to Afghanistan as Company Commander of an Army Airborne Ranger Company.
