About This Quiz

When it comes to guns and butter, the United States is full on butter, thank you very much. The Department of Defense is one of the largest employers in the world, and it has about 800 people. A few of these facilities are not much more than an airstrip or two. Others are enormous fortresses filled with cannons, tanks, warplanes, and countless soldiers. In this camo-heavy quiz, if we give you three hints, can you name the correct military base?

The US has bases all over the homeland, from California to New York. It keeps bases in Italy, Thailand, the Philippines, Honduras, and much more. Do you think you know your Fort Wainwright from Fort Gordon? One is in Georgia and the other all the way across the continent, in Alaska. One is a hub for Advanced Training for Signal Corps military occupational specialties ... the other was listed as a Superfund cleanup site in the 1990s. Give up? Fort Wainwright is the contaminated Alaska outpost and Fort Gordon is a stalwart of Georgia's military presence.

Let's see if you can puzzle your way through these other tough questions. Name these American military bases now!  If you fail, we might assign you to Fort Igloo.
