- Admiral Chester Nimitz, United States Pacific Fleet Admiral, June 1942
(24 Feb 1995 - 20 Feb 1966)

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/03/17:

The average age of people living in our military retirement community is 85. Recently, a neighbor turned 100, and a big birthday party was thrown. Even his son turned up.

“How old are you?” a tenant asked.

“I’m 81 years old,” the son answered.

The tenant shook her head. “They sure grow up fast, don’t they?”
