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.
1. What is the spirit of the bayonet?
Answer: "To kill!"

questions for the following categories (and any others that you might suggest):
|Basic Combat Training
