Adna R. Chaffee, Jr. Twitter Quiz


Tankers! It’s time for another Twitter quiz, this time observing the birthday of Adna R. Chaffee, Jr. – one of the United States Army’s first true tankers. Known as the “Father of the Armored Force,” Chaffee, Jr. was instrumental in developing the U.S. Army’s tank forces.

As with our Creighton Abrams Twitter quiz, we’ll be posting questions tomorrow – September 23, 2011 – during the day to honor Chaffee, Jr.’s birthday. It’s a great time to learn more history surrounding famous tankers, while also bringing in a bit of gold for your efforts!


  • Head over to the World of Tanks NA Twitter page.
  • We'll ask 20 questions, spread out to one question every 15 minutes.
