General Zinni presenting at a meeting of the Temple Beth El Autobiography Group

General Anthony Zinni, USMC (ret.), enthralled a meeting of the Temple Beth El Autobiography Group on Sunday, September 25th. Born outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the youngest son of a large, loving family, he traces his roots back to a small Italian hill town of the sixteenth century. His life's journey is remarkable not only for his illustrious military career (tours of duty in Vietnam and the Gulf war among other campaigns, Centcom Commander), but for his post-retirement flowering as a U.S. international mediator (mid-East, Somalia, Indonesia), CEO and businessman, academic and role-model. Truly inspirational.
