Thomas John Saito

This is as received from my buddy from boot camp, Gary Setbacken:

It is with a feeling of deep, personal loss and sadness to report the passing of Thomas John Saito. The Lord called upon him November 14, 2008.

Tom Saito was the Editor/Publisher of Guns and Ammo for >40 years.

As most of you know it is hard to get in a word in when I’m in a conversation but not with this guy.

I listened for hours to his tales of fighting in the South Pacific.

His stories of guns, gun people and hunting were like a movie script.

He fought tirelessly for all of us to keep and bear arms.

His love for the Corps and his Country were second only to his lovely wife Brigitte.

Another Marine reporting for Guard Duty, St. Peter!

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made through the memorial website to the Devils Pups Inc. and the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. Please leave your kind messages, “smart ass” remarks, stories and photos in the Memory Book on Tom’s Memorial Website.
