Acclaimed author, retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. James G. Zumwalt, addressed students, faculty and staff during the latest Secretary of the Navy Guest Lecture at the Naval Postgraduate School, Nov. 14. Zumwalt is the author of several books and head of a security-consulting firm named for his father, Adm. Elmo “Bud” Zumwalt, the youngest officer to serve as Chief of Naval Operations.
Finally, Zumwalt discussed the Navy’s decision to name the Zumwalt Class of guided missile destroyers in his father’s honor. “When the DDG-1000 goes to sea next year, it will have two patron saints – Saint Elmo, and Saint Bud,” said Zumwalt.
