My SAVI Story – Mike Foster
Michael Foster, U.S. Navy Veteran, SAVI Program Graduate and Board Member
Michael started his military journey with the Navy through his acceptance into the Naval Academy to become a Navy Pilot, then becoming a Surface Warfare Officer.
He had experienced the events of 9/11 first hand as a high schooler living in Brooklyn, NY when the tragedy events impacted the city he grew up in. The events of that day sparked a desire to serve others.
During his transition from the Navy he successfully completed the SAVI incubator program. This experience led him to join SAVI as a member of the Board of Directors to further support SAVI’s mission and serve other military members through their own transitions.
