Zumwalt Crew Returning Honor for Namesake’s Long time Aide-de-Camp

Before USS Zumwalt’s commissioning, Peter Spiro, son of retired Col. Michael Spiro, delivered an urn containing his father’s ashes aboard DDG-1000, Oct. 14.

Col. Spiro, who was the long time aide-de-camp of Adm. Elmo Zumwalt, escorted Zumwalt’s remains home following his death Jan. 2, 2000. Following the ship’s commissioning, Zumwalt’s crew will return the honor and commit Spiro’s remains to sea during its transit to its homeport of San Diego, California.
