What Do You Know About Military Jobs?

How Money Are You: Military Jobs

Memorial Day honors everyone who has served in the armed forces and have at one time or another represented our country. These men and women in uniform have an impressive level of commitment to their jobs, and I'm wondering how much you know about having a military career. How money are you?

Dang, I missed the Air Force question. This seems to be coming up a lot this year, but Memorial Day does NOT honor everyone who served etc... That's Veteran's Day. Memorial Day is specifically to honor those who have died defending the US.

I don't think the first question was fair. They were very non-specific about the branch. 4/5 though.

4/5- I didn't know that about being an Ensign. The order of the Generals would have been a good question, too. I'm always confusing those.

5/5. I come from a Military family, was raised in the Army. My Dad, numerous Uncles and Cousins, Grandfathers, both Husbands and one Son were in the different branches of the Military. Being an ole 'Military Brat' (that's what kids used to be called when their Parent was in the Military) guess you could say Military is in my blood! Also, I'm the one who does the Military research on each of my family members who were in the Service for our Genealogy Records. I really enjoyed taking the quiz.

I got my dad to help me. :) He wasn't sure of the Navy question, hence the 80%.

I definitely do not know anything about the military, but it's interesting to know a little bit more about the nomenclature.

That was hard. My dad was in the Navy for 20 years but I'm not even sure he would have known all the answers to that quiz!
