The United States Navy’s newest and most technologically advanced surface ship USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) A guided missile destroyer of the United States Navy. She is the lead ship of the Zumwalt class and the first ship to be named for Admiral Elmo Zumwalt. Zumwalt has stealth capabilities, having a radar cross-section akin to a fishing boat despite her large size. On 7 December 2015, Zumwalt began her sea trial preparatory to joining the Pacific Fleet. She is to be homeported in San Diego, California. The ship will be commissioned in Baltimore, as part of Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show, on October 15, 2016.
As election day nears and the news cycle continues to fill with dramatic stories, from suspicious Trump Foundation activity and Trump PTSD comments to Clinton WikiLeaks questions, it seems that even pop culture can’t save us from dreadful scenarios (case in point: Kim K. held at gunpoint).
Fortunately, Baltimore has our backs with plenty of upcoming real life activities that will be entertaining and – maybe most importantly – distracting. Like Fleet Week!
