At the July 4th Nationals game, we had really good seats behind the plate, when Amanda noticed a Navy officer in dress whites and a Nationals ball cap. She asked me if that was a violation of the rules for wearing a uniform. I said I didn’t know, and then after noticing four stars on his epaulets, I suggested he was okay because he probably makes the rules. Sure enough, when she recognized his name from his ID badge and realized he was the uncle of a college friend, Amanda introduced herself to Adm. Sandy Winnefeld, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the second highest-ranking military officer in the country. He said he “probably” was in violation of the rules, but, as I had told her originally, it was a moot point.
