Every US Marine Should Know These Answers!
United States Marines Quiz
This quiz is about America's elite military branch, the shock troops of the US armed forces, the United States Marines. I'm not a Marine; I spent three years in the Army. But I've always held them in high regard. Hence, this Marine Corps quiz. If you are related to, or know, a US Marine you might get half of these USMC trivia questions correct. If you've served in The Corps, you may get 8 to 9 correct. I'd be very surprised if anyone got all ten correct. If you do, you are a true student of the history of the US Marines Corps! Good luck! If you get less than three correct, you need to join the Marines to learn more about them! Thanks to all current and former US Marines for their service! Check out this fun quiz and answers on the US Marines below, and then visit the official USMC site, here to learn more about eligibility, becoming a Marine and being a Marine.
If you enjoy both history and wargaming, check out Norm Koger's phenomenal Operational Art of War III below. There are over 200 scenarios based on actual historic battles in which you can perhaps make a little history of your own as you take command of the actual units that fought in those battles. Challenge your friends in person or by email, or play against a highly sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI). Pick your side. Take command! My personal favorite is the Korean War scenario in which you have the opportunity to command US Marine, Army, Naval and Air Force units against ruthless and battle-hardened North Korean troops and, if you're not careful, hordes of Red Chinese. as well. Whether or not the Chinese enter the war will depend on the decisions you make!

General Lewis Burwell "Chesty" Puller, USMC, on being surrounded by 67,000 Chinese troops at the Chosin Reservoir, Korea:
"They're on our right, they're on our left, they're in front of us, they're behind us; they can't get away from us this time."
Movies About Marines History From Amazon
4-disk set includes combat footage of Marines in action Korea, including the landing at Inchon, and the godawful withdrawal, fighting every foot of the way in frigid temperatures, from the Chosin Reservoir, or as the Marines called it, "the Frozen Chosin," to the port of Hamhung. I served in Korea about 11 years after the war ended, and it amazes me that anyone could survive the Korean winter, virtually without shelter for days on end, and fighting for territory all along the 78-mile route from the reservoir to Hamhung.
It was the US Marines who turned things around for Gen Douglas MacArthur by cuting off the North Korean supply lines with the invasion of Inchon. Now, follow the Marines as they head north only to be surprised by human waves of Chinese troops storming across the Yalu River. Join them as they fight their way through the encircling enemy at the Chosin Reservoir and slog their way to the port of Hungnam and evacuation. Vivid combat footage!

My personal favorite is the Korean War scenario. It's June, 1950. What will you do when Kim Il-sung's 135,000 battle-hardened troops, supported by heavy artillery and 135 Soviet-made T-34 tanks blitz across the 38th Parallel dividing the two Koreas? Your South Korean Army is poorly equipped without tanks or anti-tank weapons. Your American contingent numbers only 500 troops of the Korean Military Advisory Group (KMAG). Before it's all over, though, you will command over 1,789,000 American soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors, as well at over 40,000 troops from 17 other UN countries. Do you stand and fight? Do you make an orderly withdrawal, blowing the bridges as you retreat to slow the NK advance? Will the North Koreans push you all the way down the peninsula to Pusan before reinforcements arrive? Will you be able to pull off an amphibious landing at Inchon to turn the tide? Or will you decide to land further north in North Korea, itself? Will China enter the fray? Everything depends on the choices you make. Take command!
