Down on the Farm: VFC-12 pilot and wife combine careers with farm life

When he’s not flying for the “Omars” of VFC-12, Lt. Zach Zuroweste and his wife Tiffany keep very busy on their six-acre farm in Chesapeake, where they have rescued dozens of injured and sick animals, including many of the chickens, turkeys and ducks in this photo, as well as geese and goats.

--Six o’clock and it’s dinner time at Lt. Zach and Tiffany Zuroweste’s Chesapeake home. But this isn’t a typical family scene that might be expected for the 33-year-old naval aviator and his 31-year-old wife. Instead of the expected high chairs or toddler meals, the couple is busy filling feed buckets, as nearly 100 chickens, a few ducks, geese, turkeys and two milking goats follow their every move from the house out to the barn.

Where in the world is a Shamrock?

Have you ever wondered where or what a fellow classmate of yours from high school is doing these days?  During your high school days I am sure you had an opinion or an idea of what a fellow classmate of yours would end up doing after high school.
