About This Quiz

Are you a current or former member of the military, or are you just a student of military customs? If you are, or were, a member of the military, you know that there are all sorts of customs and rules of etiquette you need to/had to follow. These rules of etiquette can be interesting to the outside world, but the ones who live it know how tedious it can really be. Either way, you've navigated to this quiz because you think you know military etiquette relatively well, right? Let's get started to find out if you know as much as you think you do.

For military personnel and their spouses, knowing when and where to engage in one or more of the hundreds, maybe even thousands, of military etiquette rules is critical to avoid being embarrassed or even reprimanded. But, how on earth are you supposed to remember all the rules? Well, some of them, thankfully, are rules that, as Americans, most of us are at least somewhat familiar with - unless you've been living under a rock. But the requirements become even more important if you are a member of the military, as these rules of etiquette are designed to show respect to higher-ranking military members.

Are you ready to prove how much you know about military etiquette?
