This week, members of America’s military have a chance of becoming our newest millionaires when they compete on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Host Chris Harrison welcome some of America’s finest service members to get into the holiday spirit and hopefully, get rich! The special series of shows will air Dec. 14-18, 2015, honoring true American heroes from the U.S. military.

“Armed Forces Week” showcases members of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Army National Guard, and salutes them for their service to their country as they step onto the Millionaire stage to play the iconic game. From an Air Force helicopter pilot to a Naval Surface Warfare Officer to a 20-year member of the Army National Guard, Millionaire welcomes a top-notch group of service members from across the United States, all with one goal in mind: to walk away with $1 million.

  1. Wendell, while the question was the first Cpt. Galeazzi was asked on 15 December, it was actually the fourth question. The previous three he answered correctly at the end of the previous episode.

    I still think it was too hard for a $3000 question. I also thought “goo” is a word, but “gle” is not. However “go” and “ogle” are both words. I thought “insta” might have been in the dictionary as a prefix, but I guess we were both wrong.

    Man, that really was upsetting, though.

  2. disappointed that there were no women contestants. and I agree that captain Galezzi should not have left empty handed. Shame on you Millionaire.

  3. I was so disappointed that captain Gregg Galeazzi left with nothing, there should have been a minimum of $10000 just like you do for charity’s. All that they gave for their country, shame on you wwtbam

  4. The question asked of Lt JG Jason Pool seemed incorrect to me. The expected “correct” answer stated that psychiatrists do not have M.D. degrees. This is not true. Lt. Pool was robbed and his appearance should be reviewed by the show producers. I encourage them to bring him back for another chance.

  5. I’m touched that WWTBAM is doing this special Armed Forces Week for our heroes. But deeply disappointed in the very first question they gave Retired Army Captain Greg Galeazzi. A trick first question, which even I got wrong. The first five are supposed to be no brainers, so when asked, “Of the following tech company names, which one CANNOT be split into two distinct words found in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary? A: Facebook, B: Google, C: Instagram, D: PayPal.
    Captian Galezzi was asked this first question after telling the story of how he lost both legs and much of his right arm. The answer is C: Instagram, not Google.
    Just not a good ‘first’ question to ask.

    • I just saw this episode and thought the same thing! It upset me so much I went looking online for some info about it. Bogus!!!!
