Navy Slang Trivia Quiz

[Intel Source: Rontini's BBS] Here's an amusing little Navy slang multiple-guess quiz that's worth a couple moments of your time. It's aimed mostly at skimmers, but I still got 19 out of 20 (I didn't know what "Med Lights" were.)

Also via Rontini's BBS, Oldsub's Place has a new page of interesting submarine statistics and facts.

I only got 13 right, but that's probably pretty good for a member of the MSM, eh?

Elaine,
I'm impressed! You're picking up some of the lingo...

PBS,
I'm not sure even the submarine brotherhood can protect you if any Marine bloggers find your comment.

Bubblehead's Son,
What are you doing on the Internet when you're supposed to be cleaning your room?!?

19/20, guessed right on Med lights, but didn't know the "titless Wave". Guess I'm too young...

Broke nav, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAVES and think about what a Yeoman does for a living. That'll explain it.

I like the quiz. 20/20. Every EM knows Med lights.
