Welcome to the 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 50th Infantry Association's trivia
site. Our trivia quizzes have a number of objectives, including keeping
knowledge of our war alive, helping keep our brains active, and having fun.
We're pretty unsophisticated right now, and merely ask you the questions
and let you call up the answers when you're ready. If you want to keep score,
you'll have to do it yourself. Later on (if there's enough interest and
we also find a sugar daddy), we may put together an interactive quiz.
