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)
I'm not entirely sure of the numbers, but I do know that the majority of the US Navy fleet was stationed there, as well as a number of the Air Force's planes. So my assumption would be a vast majority of it.
Russia has over 845,000 troops and a military budget of about $1billion. It also has over 2 million reserve forces that could bemade available within a short period of time.

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.
The basic answer is no. In most states, you have to be 21 to get a handgun carry permit, however, I think there are one or two states that will issue handgun carry permits to people 18 or older.
Answer . Hey good question. I recommend you get your query attended by some military loan providing company. Check this out http://www.militaryloans.com/faq/index.html.
Research the websites; and add up EACH countries Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard; plus the Reserves of each component.

Generally you have to join, then work your way through their particular combat style, then when you're high enough, you can apply to lat-move to instructor. They're not going to just sign you up to be one.
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)
There's no way of knowing this, nor is there any way of findingout. Any numbers would be a complete guess.
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)

generally they must use what they are issued. special operations has much greater choice in what they use. m4/m16a2 / m14 / SCAR / more machine guns / etc
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.
Since a tiger weighs 570-900 pounds, there would need to be quite a few strong men with good strength, like five would be enough. Two grown men (hunting skills) with sharp hunting knives could kill a tiger. One could go on the front to slash and distract the tiger while the other could go on the ba…ck to gore the tiger to death. (MORE)

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 soldiers 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. (MORE)
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 cause them to be jailed 5-10 years when caught and removed from the military.
That depends on the nature of the construction activity. Painters and plasterers may need less safety oversight than iron workers, roofers, or excavators.

Normally, nine, but it'll vary based on the function and manpower requirements of that squad, as well as number of personnel available.
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.
Do all officers below Brigadier General in the US military see combat as much as enlisted soldiers do?
A bit unlikely... as with enlisted personnel, you'll have a lot of officers who may never leave the FOB, or may never even be deployed. And while a Colonel may be in the field with their troops, they won't be going house-to-house, kicking down doors with enlisted soldiers and junior officers.
A battalion is a military unit typically consisting of 300 to 900soldiers. The term has been used in nearly every Western army forcenturies.
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)
I believe it was 25 or 30 years, after which they could retire and have a wife and family.
1/2 of one percent. (.05%) of the entire U.S. Population has actively have served in a combat theater within their lifetimes.
Although they mean the same thing, "wounded" is traditionally associated with "hostile actions" (criminal actions, gunfights, war, etc.) while "injured" is normally associated with accidents (car, plane, boating accidents or earthquakes, etc., as some examples). Approximately 300,000 US servicemen …were wounded in the Viet War. (MORE)
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)

Which is structured to support joint and combined combat operations throughout the range of military operations?
It is the United States Air Force that provides structured tosupport joint and combined combat operations. The Air Force canaccomplish this because of its superior control over air and space.It is precise, mobile, and can attack quickly.
On a regular army base (i.e. not in a combat zone) combat personnel do not carry weapons on their person at all times. However, if the base is in a combat zone, all personnel are required to carry weapons. These arms can be anything from a personal weapon (pistol) to a combat ready device or assault… rifle. It depends solely on the weaponry that is assigned to the combat personnel. (MORE)
