In Vietnam, the average support to combat ratio was 1:2. Today, that ratio suffers as a result of cutbacks and layoffs, but ranges anywhere from 20:1 to 50:1.
There was about 9.7 million military personnel killed in world war one.
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.
