About This Quiz

The United States Navy has a long and proud tradition of not only protecting the United States but many other sections of the world during times of war as well as times of peace where it acts as a deterrent. 

The United States Navy was begun as the Continental Navy on October 13, 1775. Initially, it was tasked with breaking the British supply chain during the War of Independence. Once the United States was formed, the navy was disbanded, only to be brought back a few years later because of the threat of piracy which was wreaking havoc with its own supply routes.

It was perhaps World War II that showed how effective an aircraft carrier-based navy could be. After the initial defeat at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Navy fought back and dealt the Japanese Imperial Navy a hammer blow at the Battle of Midway by sinking four enemy carriers. Many other victories were gained in the Pacific through the rest of the war.

Now, the United States Navy has bases around the world, not just in America. And don't forget, these are not just bases near the sea. They include facilities in cities, air naval stations where naval air wings are found and many other locations.

But if we told you the United States Navy base, would you be able to identify the closest city to it?

Be warned, some of these are tough.

Good luck!
