Rick,

   Thanks for running this contest. It has been a neat and fun evolution. BTW, after I got my ass chewed for walking "on" them, I learned to walk "over" them...

You are welcome. We may have other special trivia contests later. So, you're an Air guy. That must have been an easy question then. The other four guys going for TARAWA are not! May TARAWA be with you and them.

Rick, thanks, but I'm not an airdale. I was an HM2, earned my ESWS and left as an HM1. Working on ESWS forced me to learn all about TARAWA, but it was a great experience. Other than my HMCS, I was the only other HM to have earned (SW) while I was on board. That was back in the '80's when it wasn't required. I guess I was kind of a geek back then read a lot of Naval stuff (thanks Tom Clancy) and it has stayed with me ever since. I retired in '99, but have not stopped reading and following the NAVY!!!

Hoping all of our Shipmates are and remain safe,

Happy Birthday America!!!

I think, "How many of these are on the flight deck of the USS Tarawa LHA-1" would have been more of a challenge. The actual naming was a bit easy [wink] 
Although, it's a GREAT question Rick.

You did not miss one, if I remember correctly, you overlooked one question and did not answer it. You may have been on vacation and missed it.

Our last offering for the last trivial question in this series is a GIANT 20" Decal TARAWA Eagle of the Sea Sticker! (I ordered two of them. One for the winner and one for me!) It is a 20" decal printed on 5 year durability vinyl that will not fade in the sun and can withstand extreme weather conditions such as 90 degree heat and freezing snow. The decal can be applied to any flat surface such as vehicle windows, windshields, bumpers, walls, finished wood and much more. The decal is adhesive backed and very simple to install - just peal and stick! Good luck everyone!

walleyes, no that's a fish, fish eyes, no that's not it, (covered answer) and this is my final answer , a couple of patches that I will give away to some lucky squid or Marine.
