So, you think you know TARAWA? Above are two pictures of a very important part of everyday Tarawa life. What is the name of the above equipment? One answer per trivial question. Spelling Counts! Please don't post the answer anywhere on Tarawa Forum or Facebook. Thank you.

To answer this question, either PM or email me from Tarawa Forum, not Facebook. Just click on my name to the left. It is too difficult to check ALL of the USS Tarawa LHA-1 groups on Facebook. It is easier to check the answers here, in one place. I will place all names in a Tarawa ball cap to select the winner.

The contest ends DEC 15, 2013 at midnight.

Our second TARAWA Trivial Contest offering is this great stainless steel USS TARAWA LHA-1 travel mug. The USS Tarawa Eagle of the Sea shield is on both sides!

By the way, the little flag you see in the background was waved when President Reagan came to my little hometown! He stopped at the train station for a short speech. Very Cool! I loved President Reagan.

President Reagan was FROM my hometown. It was so cool watching MARINE ONE land in the playground area behind my grade school when he came home for his birthday!

I do believe you, but do you have a picture of your mother and President Reagan together you could take on your smartphone and upload it here to see. I would love to see it. 

Mr. Gorbachev take down that wall!

I totally believe you. I don't need to see the letter of thanks. I just wanted to see President Reagan and your mom. Thanks.

    Rick,
   
    I can proudly say that the great Ronald Wilson Reagan was not only the 1st president I voted for, was our best Commander-In-Chief, but was the greatest president that I ever had the honor to have served under.
