Singapore Sailor becomes one of the elites
Culinary Specialist 1st Class Sean Zugsmith was selected by the World Master Chefs Society to receive the Master Chefs Diploma of Culinary Excellence in December, becoming only the fourth active-duty enlisted service member to receive the honor in the history of the Department of Defense.
"Being sponsored and mentored by a Master Chef was a great honor, and that on its own would have been great," said Zugsmith. "To actually be selected is humbling and it's a great career milestone."
Zugsmith is currently serving as the enlisted aide to Rear Adm. Charles Williams, Commander, Logistics Group Western Pacific. Zugsmith has served in flag messes and special duty assignments over the course of his Navy career, utilizing his talent and passion for the culinary arts.
