Thang 1 – Vet Trivia
I’ve always enjoyed the scenery at the Vet but until a recent Saturday at the park, I hadn’t really taken in the actual material/meaning. I thought I would quiz the PAX on their knowledge of the VET and/or history trivia. Honestly I thought there would more than one VET guy to help Tony Malito out. Vincent was pretty strong though. Correct Answers got 5 Jump Squats, Wrong answers got a lap around the memorial area.
#1 – Name 5 of 8 words inscribed on benches – CORRECT 5 Jump Lunges
(Duty, Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, Courage, Sacrifice, Commitment, Service)
#2 – What is the phrase in the middle seal and what does it mean?
PAX got the phrase (E Pluribus Unum) but not the meaning (Out of Many, One) – TAKE A LAP!
#3 – Who said “A true leader has confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others? – WRONG – Take a lap!
#4 – Who said “I only regret that I only have one life to give for my Country” – WRONG – Take a lap! – NATHAN HALE
#5 – Who said – “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction…it must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same? – CORRECT 5 Jump Lunges (REAGAN)
#6 – Who said “We have met the enemy, and they are ours?” Wrong – take a lap!
(Oliver Hazard Perry)
#7 How many of the seals of the Armed Services have an anchor in the seal? CORRECT 5 jump lunges (Navy, Marines, Coast Guard)
