Topic: Odd Military Trivia


Well, everyone else had a trivia posting i finally got enough Milbucks in my bank account to support a trivia game: D

This is where I will post my type of weird service realted trivia questions: its going to cover all the services of the US Military so everone can get a chance. The first, reliable and correct answer posted will have the 10 milbuck reward. Given of course, as as a donation.


The first official question (drum roll please):

For those that love the US Marine Corp:

Here are two questions that only a diligent person who studys Marine Corp traditions can answer:

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: the black enlisted garrison hat badge is not looked at in this question.)

2. What is the cause, according to the Marine Corp legend, for this difference?

10 milbucks to the first person that has the full correct answer to both questions.

we are at the midpoint of the week..the suspense is mounting...and only marksman has tried to answer (he does not have a correct answer by the way) but he did have the guts to write me. He now knows the answer, and has been eliminated as a contestant. (Dont worry, he got some awesome bucks for his guts!)

seems like 10 measley bucks aint drawing them hard core trivia people out of the woodwork: The prize is now 100 milbucks for the correct answer to both questions. The standard fee for the first person to answer correctly from now on will be 100 milbucks, made by donation of course!

The answer for this question will be revealed next monday, and a new question will be posted.

Good luck!

Nice prize, but first, I don't know the answers (I'm not a diligent person who studies Marine Corp traditions), and second, you donít have the cash.... :P
