Do all military personnel go to Afghanistan?
No. There are several personnel in the military who will never see a combat tour - there are some who will never even see any overseas assignment, period.

Not legally. You could be charged for impersonation of a military Member, but as long as you arent wearing any distinct identifiers (ie Capbadge, or unit Slip-ons/ Eppilates, Rank, Pins, Medals & Badges, Regimental Buttons) You haven't earned and the clothing isn't a restricted item (Canadian Cadpat…) and it is legally purchased at a surplus store (for paintball, airsoft, camping) etc (MORE)
Answer . Depends on how they were discharged and whether or not they are members of the reserve. You should have a valid military ID of some type, active, retired, disability or reserve to wear a uniform. Medical discharge is entitled to wear the uniform on proper occassions.
Why do military personnel go to Levenworth prison and british personnel serve their time at Colchester?
colchester is the only military correction centre in England for british personal which takes in all of the 3 armed forces.
You're not required to wear it stateside. The wear of the flag on the uniform is done for overseas deployments.
\n . \nafter the Korean conflict . The U.S. military has always been a volunteer with periods of draft in times of war. the recent "All Volunteer Force" started with the end of the Viet-Nam era draft in January 1973.
Math is used in the military for navigation (Aircraft, Ships, Tanks/Infantrymen), used for elevation and windage (deflection) when firing the artillery; math is used to compute ammunition numbers, food requests, fuel consumption, parts ordering, and other logistical operations. Math is also used in …determining how much money we earned on pay day. (MORE)
As far as the US Military goes... \n. A military members' pay depends on their pay grade. There are three different types of pay grades: 1. Enlisted (E-1, E-2, E-3, E-4, all the way up through E-9), 2. Warrant Officer (WO-1 through WO-5), and 3. Officer (O-1 through O-10). Below is a link for the… military pay tables effective 1 January 2008. (MORE)
Of course! Can you imagine putting hard fighting citizens in harm's way to defend us at home, and then denying them a vote? Can't happen.
It varies depending on the mission. The actual answer would not be easy to find, as this is sensitive information.
Research the websites; and add up EACH countries Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard; plus the Reserves of each component.
\nEvery soldier receives one pair of dog tags in Basic Training. When the soldier gets to his first duty station, he normally receives a second set.
Yes and no. All military personnel from any country are given basic training as combatants in case they need it, and on a few occasions they have needed it, but only a percentage of any military organization find themselves at "the sharp end." The rest of them do maintenance, push pencils, and load …trucks, planes, ships, which allows those at "the sharp end" to have what they need to fight.. In the US military, Quakers and other conscientious objectors have abstained from combat, but they have served as medics and other non-combat personnel. (MORE)
In the U.S. Military, the prison for military personnel is called the Brig. EDIT: Major* sentences in the military are served at USDB at Ft. Leavenworth prison in Kansas. Female inmates are sent to the Naval Consolidated Brig in San Diego, California. *Only enlisted prisoners with sentences over… five years, commissioned officers, and prisoners convicted of offenses related to national security are confined to the USDB. Enlisted prisoners with sentences under five years are housed in smaller facilities, such as the Regional Correctional Facility at Fort Knox, Kentucky or the Marine Corps Brig at Quantico, Virginia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Disciplinary_Barracks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Consolidated_Brig,_Miramar (MORE)
Most of the US military has always been volunteer. Of all the US armed forces, individuals have only ever been conscripted or drafted into the Army. Conscription has come and gone a number of times, for a variety of reasons, throughout US history. The most recent round began in 1940 under FDR--cont…inued through WWII, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War--and was abolished by Congress in 1973. (MORE)
Yes, one can visit Afghanistan, if he granted a visa by the AfghanEmbassy (no limitations). All afghan who fleed or took politicalshelters abroad can freely visit Afghanistan. Non restriction.Amnesty allowed to all Afghans under Bohn agreement signed by HamidKarzai. Karzai became President later.
Yes, as long it was honorable. Depending on how long they were out they may have to go back through some form of boot camp and training.
Just to expand on my question a bit, I recentely came across a blog written by a guy in the US military. His picture showed him in full uniform and he states he is the Air Force reserve. My issue is he has some quite extreme religious views and for example calls gays 'perverts' , scientists 'stupid'… for believing in evolution, and comments on Muslims in Britain and Obama. I agree that everyone is entitled to their views but I don't think someone should be able to express views like this when representing the US military. Is he allowed to say things like this whilst dressed in uniform and represnting the military? (MORE)
No; that would be an awful lot of saluting and would cause a lot of confused civilians if you saluted everyone when walking down the street. But, at least in the Navy, the standard was to smile and return the salute if a civilian salutes you (as kids often do).
Soldiers and officers must be accountable to each other becausetrust is crucial. If a man cannot trust another in the face ofdeath, the irresponsible party must leave.
If the military personnel was died while on service, his next of kin ie his wife or parents if he was unmarried, intitle for defence pension as per the cause of death of military personnel.
If the administration wishes re-new such a program, it will most likely be for political reasons (a fairness in equal opportunity/and/or responsibilty, as one example). . Currently, their is no need for such a program; as the global war on terror does not require such actions, for the following rea…sons: . 1. Troop strengths in Afghanistan or Iraq are nowhere near the troop strengths of US past wars. To include equipment such as tanks, artillery, helicopters, jets, and ordnance. . 2. Such past levels of US military men/equipment are no longer needed. Vietnam for example required nearly a thousand bombs dropped from 100 super sonic jets to destroy one bridge, and still couldn't do it (example of a 1965 mission). TODAY's aircraft can do it with one or two UAV's (no pilot at risk of dying, or being taken as a hostage) and using a SMART weapon. . 3. TODAY's military is full of Special Elite Sniper/Commando units, which operate with a fraction of the manpower needed in the 20th century. Every branch of the United States military (Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, and Air Force) has some sort of Special Elite units. These units have more than the capability of terminating terrorists. They are equipped with .50 caliber sniper rifles; they are equipped with NIGHT Vision devices; they are equipped with LASER ranger finders: GPS navigation systems. Just 12 Special Elite Commando Snipers of the US military can perform the mission of a whole Vietnam War battalion of infantrymen (600 men). . 4. If the Commander in Chief uses his "Special Elite Commando" type units and his hi-technology super weapons, then he will have the excellent results that he had when he deployed his SEAL snipers; which terminated some Somalia hi-jackers a few months ago on the high seas. Three shots fired, 3 hi-jackers terminated. Each bullet (cartridge) cost less than $2.00 apiece. (MORE)
The US is currently in Afghanistan following the attacks on September 11, 2001. The attacks were led by a lone terrorist organization called Al Qaeda, who set up their "headquarters" in the mountains of Eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban, a local extremest group was hired by Al Queda to protect Osama …Bin Laden the leader of the terrorist organization. The US ordered the Taliban to give up Bin Laden or be destroyed by a US invasion. After a few days it was clear that Bin Laden would not surrender. The US invaded Afghanistan in October of 2001 after intelligence was gathered by a CIA team codenamed "Jawbreaker" and defeated both the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Bin Laden escaped into the Tora Bora mountains and later into Pakistan were he began to rebuild Al Qaeda. The Taliban went into hiding as US forces easily took control of Kabul and other major cities. Currently the US is still in the country fighting an insurgency set up by Taliban warlords. Fewer than 100 Al Qaeda fighters remain in Afghanistan, But US drone attacks around Islamabad Pakistan weaken Al Queda everyday. The US is winning the War on Terror, and now almost all of the United States resources heading for Afghanistan, because of Operation Iraqi Freedom coming to a close, which was a victory. (MORE)

When India was a colony of Britain, they would be colonial military personnel if they were in the Indian Army (Navy, etc.). When America was a colony of Britain, Americans were "Colonial Soldiers" under the Crown.
Most of it's covered under the Stolen Valour Act, also known as United States Code Title 18, Paragraphs 702 and 704.
In Iraq and Afghanistan no, unless you are a General or something. Guys have been known to walk around with confiscated sidearms from Iraqis, but it is officially against the rules. I do not know about previous wars.
There are no countries but there are 34 provinces plus the City of Kabul which is goverened as a separate entity.
No. In fact there was quite a crackdown on steroid use, especially with soldiers serving in the Republic of Korea, where it was much easier to acquire anabolic steroids than in the US.
Military personnel salute each other to show respect. It is also a formal military courtesy. Usually enlisted men/women salute officers first. The officers will then either return the salute or put them at ease. In the field (i.e. combat zones) you are not supposed to salute. This is because as ment…ioned above enlisted persons usually salute officers first. If a sniper or spy is watching saluting an officer would give away the fact that they are an officer and therefore they would become a ideal snipers target. If you eliminate a officer it is Both A: Bad for troop morale. And B: units have a tendancy to fall apart. Hope this helps. (MORE)

Initially, I'd say as a private contractor, but if you have some situation or condition which prohibits you from military membership, none of those companies are very likely to hire you, either.

Yes, due to the fact that civilians are less likely to come into contact with NBC threats. ...and... No, because civilians do not typically have the equipment or training necessary to deal with such threats.
They are very strong, since the occupation of the Taliban.Afghanistan remained strong. The US, UK, France are still sendingtheir troops to end terrorism.
No.They didn't.Well,not ALL of it. (I know this because I'm a 9 year old girl from Afghanistan.) The Northern Alliance, a group of warlords and sheikhs that controlled the country prior to the Taliban held some of the rural areas in northeastern Afghanistan (10% of the country) throughout the 199…0s and up to the American Invasion. However, the Taliban controlled all major urban centers in Afghanistan and were the dominant political force in Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. (MORE)
Kabul: An exception among Afghan rivers, Kabul river is always full of water. It flows east into Pakistan to merge into the Indus River. Amu Darya: This river, located on the norther border, is the country's only largely navigable river. Two main tributaries of Amu Darya are Panj and Vakhsh. … Harirud River: Rising in Central Afghanistan, Harirud River moves to west and north-west direction where the border with Iran exists. Water of Harirud River is extensively for irrigation purposes in Herat region. Helmand River: Longest among the rivers in Afghanistan, Helmand River originates in Central Hindu Kush mountains. The river flows past the south-west region of the country, ending in Iran. This river is also widely used for irrigation. (MORE)
No. The only way to drink in Wisconsin when you are underage is if you are with your parents and your last names match on your IDs. Even then it is bar discretion on if they will allow it, although most places do.
That would primarily depend on whether they retired as an enlisted man, or as an officer. It would also depend on your familiarity with the individual. In general, you would just refer to them as Mr. Whatshisname, or Mrs. Whatshername. Exceptions are usually for Field Grade Officers (Major, Lieute…nant Colonel, Colonel) and General Officers (Brigadier General, Major General, Lieutenant General, General). In these cases, you would use their working title: Major : Major Whatshisname (Abbreviated MAJ) Lieutenant Colonel : Colonel Whatshisname (Abbreviated LTCOL) Colonel : Colonel Whatshisname (Abbreviated COL) All general titles : General Whatshisname (Abbreviated BGEN, MGEN, LGEN, GEN) Enlisted personnel do not usually require special salutations in general. Exceptions are for those persons with whom you're personally familiar with, and those are usually only high ranking enlisted personnel including: Navy Chief Petty Officer : "Chief" Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant : "Gunny" Marine Corps Master Gunnery Sergeant : "Master Gunny" Army/Marine Corps Sergeant (or higher) : "Sarge" Always use discretion, as some persons would rather be considered civilians, and be referred to as such.

It works like an old-style pension, rather than a 401k. There's no explicit contributing to it. It's just part of the compensation that if you serve >=20 years and retire, you get retirement pay (which is a percentage of your last active-duty pay). Members of the military do have the option to cont…ribute to a Federal Thrift Savings Plan, which is just an Individual Retirement Account but with a higher yearly contribution limit (as with an IRA at a bank, contributions aren't taxed until withdrawal). This is unrelated to military retirement pay though; all federal employees can set up a Thrift Savings Plan. (MORE)
No. If CS tear gas is required for a mission, it is issued. Being in the military does not allow you to personally own any types of weapons which are not available to the general public.
Yes there is. I think you can find a full list on wikipedia ( maybe )
yes As Commander in Chief of the U. S. Armed Forces, the U. S. President outranks all other military officers. Even Admirals and Five-Star Generals when in the presence of the President must wait for him/her to answer their salute. I believe some Generals have had a problem with that, especially …in cases involving a President who had never donned a uniform. (MORE)
Do same-sex spouses of active US military personnel receive All-Volunteer Force Educational Assistance Program benefits?
Yes, effective February 11, 2013. This benefit was specifically enumerated among those that are available immediately to same-sex spouses of US military personnel in a memo from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. This represents a change in policy as of this date.
It is the Army branch of the military that issues green socks as part of the uniform. Other branches issue other colors of socks. The green is consistent with the rest of the typical green uniform issued to Army personnel.
First, be absolutely certain you're right about this. The agency to contact would be the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID).
If you are wounded while serving in the military or killed in action you can be awarded a purple heart. The President of the United States is usually the one who awards the military member or family member with the honor of the purple heart medal.
Some states that allow military personnel to apply for a military payday loan are Arizona, New Mexico and North Carolina. These loans are capped to 36% APR by the federal law.
You can probably get a loan from your bank or credit union. If you are a military member and belong to the Navy Federal Credit Union, that is probably the best place. You can be in any branch of the military and be a member of the NFCU.
