SAVA Celebrates Our Veterans

Happy Veteran’s Day everyone. At Sava, we celebrate our veterans every day, and we’re glad to live in an area that is home to so many brave veterans and active military.

Some of our own employees are lucky enough to have veterans as parents and spouses, and they wanted to share their loved one’s story with all of you!
