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.
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 percent…age 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.
There's no way of knowing this, nor is there any way of findingout. Any numbers would be a complete guess.
Probably not a 100th of what America does.America is preparing for martial law and needs all the soldiers it can get to fight against the people the govt will threatern the fa…mily's of the military and offer them a healthy life for their services in controlling the masses.expect something simular in Australia though
The estimates vary greatly on the ratio of support to combatsoldiers, but the situation has certainly improved over time. Forinstance, the American Civil War had roughly ten s…oldiers for everysingle support unit. World War One featured about three supportstaff for every ten soldiers. In Vietnam, the average support tocombat ratio was 1:2. Today, that ratio suffers as a result ofcutbacks and layoffs, but ranges anywhere from 20:1 to 50:1.
Probably, the navy seals are given amphetamines (speed) daily. But then again maybe not, because soldiers in Vietnam indulged into drugs like heroin and marijuana that would c…ause them to be jailed 5-10 years when caught and removed from the military.
In Vietnam War
At the time of the Vietnam War their was about 2 million. Now their is roughly 760,000.
In Vietnam War
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.
In US Military
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 re…turn the salute or put them at ease. In the field (i.e. combat zones) you are not supposed to salute. This is because as mentioned 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.
