Good job on the last 3 roundshort! The commander in the NAVY SEALs is Master Chief! And the eagle is Airborne. These questions were right up your alley! God bless our troops!

Hey IF101,
Great questions.

But I must disagree with the Navy Seals question. A Master Chief is an E9, the highest enlisted rank in the Navy. But when you say the 'head' of the Navy Seals, I must assume that you mean the overall commander of the Organization. This would be by definition an Officer; at least a full bird Captain, and probably an Admiral.

I am stumped for the answer, (once again.....good question), but I know it's not a Master Chief.

82nd had the two A's becasue, and I am sure this is not 100% but they were the "All America" and the first truley integrated unit in the military. About the Seals, that was my problem with the question, as many seals are officers, as well as enlisted, and as a Marine who never really understood naval rank, was not sure what this question erally reffered to, but I do know that the different S.E.A.L, eams all fall under a commander, but I am sure an Admirial at one time or another has issued orders

(reall good place to insert one of the many "rear Admiral Jokes

I'm shocked that you got C. wrong roundshort! During 1969 the most bloodiest battles in Vietnam was located in Khe Sahn! Americans were dying the most in Sahn. Over 20 men a day died in Khe Sahn making it one of most deadliest areas in Vietnam.

I wanted to say khe Sahn, which is called the miracle of Khe Sahn, cause the small amout of Marines that held the landing strip, it is actually one of hte battles we are most proud of, but I was worried it was a trick question, with all of the bombing in Laos, and the uge death toll there in 1969, I thought that might have been a sneak answer, I always think too much onthese questions, nice job!
