So, you think you know TARAWA? Tarawa was laid down in November 1971 at Pascagoula, Mississippi, by Ingalls Shipbuilding, launched 1 December 1973, sponsored by Audrey B. Cushman, the wife of General Robert E. Cushman, former Commandant of the Marine Corps; and commissioned on 29 May 1976, Capt. James H. Morris in command.

Name this artist and his top song of 1976, when TARAWA was commissioned.

Our third TARAWA Trivial Contest offering is this great stainless steel USS TARAWA CV-40 colorized print bar. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. I ordered one for myself and decided to get another one for our contest. It is very nice!

So far, the following shipmates have PMed or emailed me the correct answer for TARAWA Trivial Question #3 or #3A. I will place all names in a Tarawa ball cap to select the winner. (See TARAWA Trivial Question #1-#2 to watch the selection process.)
 
Please answer on Tarawa Forum by simply clicking on my name on the left side of the page and selecting email or PM. It is too difficult for me to check all Tarawa groups and Facebook messages. I get many Tarawa related emails, Tarawa Forum PMs, and Tarawa FB messages a day. 
 
There are 12 Tarawa shipmates in the drawing in TARAWA Trivial Question #3 and #3A. The contest ends JAN 31, 2014 at midnight. Good Luck Shipmates!
 
TARAWA Title Level Notice: For those who CAN answer the first ten questions correctly, their names and avatar pictures will be listed for all to see on Tarawa Trivial Hall of Fame for years and years. They will advance from the entry title level of BOOT CAMP to the top title level of TARAWA! (Currently, there is only one shipmate with the title of TARAWA.) Plus there will be a SPECIAL ceremony for them at our August reunion in fabulous Las Vegas during our banquet program.

Moderator John Green thought the "RATING SPECIFIC" question would be easy to answer for those in the rate, but not so easy for those not in the rate. So, we are having a two for one sale! Yes shipmates, you can answer either TARAWA Trivial Question #3 or #3A for the third drawing. For some, it will allow them to continue their quest for the Tarawa Trivial Hall of Fame. Of course, you can answer both, but your name will only be entered once for the drawing.

The Tarawa Trivial Questions #3 and #3A Winner is IC2(SW)Carvajal. The correct answers are Peter Frampton - "Show Me The Way” or the Windbirds on the upper mast arms for wind speed & direction and the "Pit Sword" on the hull of the ship in the trunk in the FWD IC Shop for water speed. Raised and lowered during every channel passage or Sea & Anchor Detail.
 
BRAVO ZULU to all twelve Tarawa Trivial contestants.
 
Did you get the answer correct or incorrect? 
 
So, you think you know Tarawa?
