1950-1969

 
 
 

Saelzler, Steven Edward, Age 72 passed away December 5, 2021.  Steve grew up in Livonia, MI.  He graduated from Franklin High School in 1967.   Not too long after graduation, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and sent to Viet Nam, an experience that eventually led to a deep commitment to numerous peace movement organizations, chief among them Veterans for Peace. As a young veteran Steve used drugs and alcohol to deal with the hurt, anger and disillusionment.  But, at age 33, he joined AA and started on his path of sobriety and engagement with peace and justice organizations, a path he stayed on until his death.
