My grand nephew Anthony invited me to his schools' Veterans Day program. It was a cute program. honoring family members that were veterans and Anthony got to present me and give me a special pin. But while we were waiting to enter the gym we veterans were all standing around and I say a Naval Captain in dress uniform who was to be one of the speakers. I went up and started talking to him and his name was Zumwalt. Which lead me to ask the question, any relation to the CNO Elmo Zumwalt and I found out that he was a 7th cousin to the former CNO. He then told me that his initials were also the same as the former CNO. Interesting where and who you can unexpectedly meet.
