Vietnam Era Trivial Pursuit

Trivial Pursuit - Genius Edition!

One person wrote in that he didn't know how much he had forgotten until he looked at our Association website, and that provided the inspiration to start this trivia page. Maybe it's misnamed, because much of the "trivial" knowledge that we had to remember in Vietnam could save our lives, but that's the name widely used today (thanks to Hasbro's board game "Trivial Pursuit") so we'll stick with "trivia".

Please send in your trivia to the 1/50(M) Trivial Pursuit - Genius Edition. Your contributions will be gratefully accepted... and who knows, they may help you stump your friends or dazzle your grandkids.
