No both do show the western hemisphere. But you are very very warm.
look at both again.


that really nice silver and gold one captains have is pretty, but it doesnt play into this trivia question.

okay heres the first part of the question...

1. Other than the colors used, and the fine attention to detail of the Officer Badge itself: What is the main difference between the Enlisted and Officers Hat Badge? ( This is the round, white hat that them Marine wear in their dress uniform


Answer: The main difference is the island of cuba. The enlisted hat badge shows the island of cuba: the officers hat badge does not.

2. what is the reason for this difference?

answer: legend has it that there has not been a marine officer killed on this island...yet. there fore, it isnt displayed on their badge...yet.

look at the badges carefully and you will see the differences.

next question will be posted monday, 31 May 2004 at 1200 GMT.

it wont be this hard. and it will be worth...100 milbucks!
