    Most of my in-laws are in Middle East and am known as "Omar" to them. (Also a much safer name to be known to others as....esp when crossing borders...:-/)


    Got tired of when out in crowd, someone calls my name and 15-20 other "Omar's" turn and answer.

    Have family now trained to call me "OmarD" pronounced "Omardy" - works much better...

    Mine is CV-2 because my uncle served on the USS Lexington (CV-2) as an aircraft mechanic during World War II. He was onboard when the Lexington was attacked by the Japanese during the Battle of the Coral Sea and was forced to abandon ship with a bunch of his shipmates. If anyone recalls that famous picture of about a hundred sailors jumping over the side of the burning ship, he was one of them.
