About This Quiz

Join the Navy and see the world, they say. 

Well, unless you get a posting to a land base and never get on a ship.

The United States Navy has a long and rich history that dates back many, many years. It has seen its fair share of happy victories and painful defeats, but today it is acknowledged as the most powerful navy in the world.

And that's not only in terms of ships. The United States Navy's air wing is something to behold as well!

So how much do you actually know about the United States Navy? Of course, there is its history. Like when was it formed? Who played a prominent role in its formation? After it was disbanded, why was it brought back again a few short years later?

Or maybe you know about some famous Navy personnel? A number of U.S. presidents have spent time in the Navy. Would you know who they are?

Do you know how many aircraft the Navy operates, how many people it employs, how many reserves it has? And what about the Navy motto? Did you know there was an official and unofficial one?

Why don't we see just how much you do know about the United States Navy with this quiz!

Good luck!
