What is Arabic for New Years?

I am pretty sure it is this:
سنة جديدة But the actual Islamic New Year is called R'as as-Sana. Not so much a holiday like ours though.

The holiday for same in Vietnamese is "Tet."
Five times within the last 100 years, the US Armed Forces have had direct --- and painful --- experience with enemies who have tried to turn around a deteriorating situation by lashing back in one last, massive assault.

The list of presidents and their military commanders who have faced these crises reads like a who’s who of recent American history: Woodow Wilson and General John "Blackjack" Pershing; Franklin Delano Roosevelt and General Dwight D. Eisenhower; Harry Truman and Admiral Chester A. Nimitz, then General Douglas MacArthur; and finally, with less happy results almost four decades ago, Lyndon Baines Johnson and General William Westmoreland.
Bookie has a great snag that you all should read as you prepare for September. The author is D. M. Giangreco, who served as an editor at Military Review for 20 years.
