The official AHF Cold War quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 23 Aug 2003 08:41

Over in my Swedish forum we've had a quiz thread running for a year or so and it has been a great success, so I think it is time to get one (or rather a few) started here too.
The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to my below question, posts a new question (must be on a Cold War era topic) and so on.


Here is a question to get us started:

Which US unit used the below insignia in Vietnam?

If I recall correctly he was killed in a jeep accident in Seoul, involving South Korean army vehicles on 22 December, 1950.
