A special presentation by the Society of American `Magicians was made on June 22, 2016 to Dr. Steven R Sabo, for his courageous lifesaving services during his tenure as Chief Flight Surgeon, with over 136 combat Medevac and Airevac Blackhawk helicopter flights in Afghanistan which won him the Air Medal three times for combat missions.
He also lead military missions in Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia, Haiti, Central America, Korea, NATO Europe, and other locations. He took his magic to all those areas. Dr. Sabo is presently honorably retired from the US Air Force.
As he will be unable to attend their upcoming convention later in July, the special “Heroism and Patriot” award medal was given to Dr. Sabo by Society of American Magicians President David Bowers at a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City, accompanied by the New York Port Authority Pipe and Drums Band.
