    Dr. Beyster,

    Unfortunately I never got the opportunity to meet you, but, I want to thank you for making SAIC such a great company to work for. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant when SAIC aquired EMA back in 2004, but it turns out that acquistion has allowed me to learn and grow, as well as meet some wonderful people, and I’m thankful for that opportunity. I hope to be with SAIC for many more years to come.

    Happy 90th birthday!!

    All the best,

    Happy birthday Bob! We are all continuing to learn from the business and personal lessons that you taught us. Your selfless act of sharing the company set an example that I continue to try and emulate every day. Thanks to you, there are new business models that will continue to be developed for how ownership can drive successful companies – drawing from your inspiration to make a difference in the world.

    Steve: It is always good to hear from you. Thank you for the birthday greetings and the kind words. You know of course that all of us built SAIC together — without talented people like you, SAIC would never have been so successful. I hope to see you again soon. — Bob

    Happy 90th Birthday!!! I’m attempting to get you a video, but I know I won’t have time in 30sec to say all I want. First, I’m glad you’re still with us! 90 years, and still contributing – what an accomplishment. You continue to amaze. I met my lovely wife of 15 years – Ellen – at a TEC Meeting in McLean. She retired recently from SAIC after 25 years. But, believe it or not, I am still an employee! Bob Latko is also still there, and we share an office. We are the last of the dinosaur 42 year employees. We remain valuable for our USSTRATCOM domain knowledge.

    Thank you so much for making your employee ownership vision a reality and providing a work environment where, no joke, I could “be all that I could be”. Wow, what a ride it was. I wish I could do it all over again – mostly :)

    Here’s to many more productive years and birthdays for you, Bob.

    Pete Ward

    Bill Vance sends his birthday wishes as well.

    Pete: Thanks for the 90th birthday note and video. I enjoyed seeing you again after all these years. Robert played a short version of the video at my party on Saturday and you were in it. 42 years with SAIC is a remarkable accomplishment — congratulations! Please give my best to Ellen and to Bill Vance and Bob Latko. — Bob
