Previous Quiz: In 1944 Cesar Chavez joined the United States Navy at the age of seventeen for what he later called “the two worst years of my life.” Chavez had hoped that he would learn skills in the Navy that would help him later in civilian life, but he soon discovered that Mexican-Americans in the Navy in those days could only work as deckhands or painters.
