No, unless the retiree took out the Survior Benefit option on retirement, then the spouse would get 1/2 of the military retirees monthly benefit.

They have different jobs and so forth. Without the military we would all be destroyed. ( Full Answer )
officers can resign their commissions, but enlisted personal cannot. enlisted have to screw up bad, refuse to follow orders, present some mental or physical ailment to preclude further military service. depending on reason, a honorable discharge (the best) may be forthcoming or, good of the service,… general discharge or undesirable discharge may be confered on a solder which are not good. Worst, a dishonorable discharge.................hang in there, all things come to an end....... ( Full Answer )
Some people feel it's a violation of our American freedom being that the government is "forcing" you to join the military. Also another problem is that the people in charge of drafting will choose the younger adults before the older ones. So as a parent many are opposed to sending their 18 year olds… away to fight while the 25 and older stay here and pray their never needed. And of course if the child happens to be the son of any government official, couple strings pulled here and there and suddenly the neighbors son is being recruited, while theirs remains here in good old America. But on the other side of things, some feel it should be your duty as an American to help fight for your so called freedom. Anyone arguing that it's violation of freedom should be able to take a bullet for our freedom. Not in all cases are the younger people sent before the older ones, and not all Senator's sons avoid the draft. A lot of just depends on your luck or last name. It's controversial because their are so many arguments for and against that it cannot be decided which side is correct. ( Full Answer )
This depends on which military organization you are askingabout. Standard equipment will be different, for example, for theBelgian Army than for the army of Malawi. . For the US Arms, the short and simple answer is "to read CommonTables of Allowances 50-900 (Clothing and Individual Equipment),50-90…9 (Field and Garrison Furnishings and Equipment) and 50-970(Expendable/Durable Items)." . The real answer is that there is no such thing as "standardissue military equipment." Every unit, and sometimes every part ofa unit, has different equipment. I'll give you an example: I was inthree tactical units: the 101st Airborne Division, III Corps andthe 10th Mountain Division. When you report to a unit they send youto Central Issue Facility to draw field equipment. The issue atthose three places was completely different--the 101st gave me asmaller pack than the other two places, III Corps gave memechanic's coveralls and the 10th Mountain gave me a $1500 arcticuniform.

Florida has no law concerning items purchased using store-issued credit cards. In the eyes of the law, a store credit card is no different than a regular credit card if the card provides a mechanism to pay over time (i.e., longer than one month) and there is a credit limit associated with the card.… Florida does not have a specific law concerning goods purchased with a credit card; rather, Florida sets guidelines as to the pricing of the cards (e.g., maximum interest rate, fees charged).

A military is a part of a government. It is authorized to uselethal force, and weapons to defend and support the interests of astate or country.
The military is an organized fighting force.There are 5 branches the Army,Navy,Marines, Air Force,and Coast Guard.Each one has a different job the Army is the largest branch handling ground assaults and some attack helicopters.The Navy controls the sea with their battleships, destroyers, anphibious …landing craft,battlecruisers,cruisers,frigates, and aircaft carriers,but they also have submarines,the Navy SEALS and some helicopters for rescue.The Marines are the smallest branch but the best trained,they specalize in anphibious landings but can do anything from flying F-18s and Cobra attack helicopters to commanding a battleship and doing joint operations with the Army.The Air Force are the leaders of everything that flies, like jet aircraft,all kinds of helicopters,recconnasince aircraft, weather data collecting planes, and radar jamming aircraft just to name a few.The Coast Guard does all the home guarding, if you get stuck in a hurricane and need rescue they`re the ones that will come save you,but they also do things with marine wildlife and helping out customs and border protection agency.They are the ones who check all the big cargo ships for drugs and illegals before they dock.All these are important to protecting us and neither one is more important than another so if you see someone in the military be sure to thank them for their service to our country.God Bless America!

Ever since the Earth's human population developed into societies, there has been some type of military. It seems that groups just can't get along as we would like. There is always a bully that wants what you have. In order for you to keep what you have, you must be willing to fight for it. Sad but t…rue. The weak have always been preyed upon by those that thought they were stronger. Look at some of the wars and conflicts that are going on today around the world. Some countries that don't have any military have been abused, robbed, killed, enslaved by some other country who had the strength to take what they want. Countries that have the strength to stop them also have a moral obligation to help the weak. We also have a right to protect our own land and people. Because there is always a bully, there must always be a protector. If a bully attacks a weak country then they can only get braver and stronger, and it is just a matter or time before they try a larger country. If you see a friend being beaten, will you muster the strength within yourself and come to their aid? Or will you turn away and pretend it didn't happen? If someone bigger than you attacks you, will you lay down and give up? Or will you defend yourself? In a "perfect" world, we would not need to have militaries. Until then we need to be able to protect ourselves. We should be very proud of those who serve, to fight injustice and terrorism and to ensure our freedom. ( Full Answer )

Yes they are. it wont be anything fancy though. maybe a M-9 pistol and a rifle without the grenade launcher. it also depends on the theater you are in
I don't believe so. The states I'm familiar with want some form of state issued ID so that they can determine that you are, in fact, a legal resident of the state.
Doctors in the military are issued defensive arms--they usually get the M9 pistol. They can't have a weapon to use offensively, like a rifle. The only people in the military who are issued no arms at all are chaplains.
no there is now tax inculded for milatry when they buy a caroverseas this isof coursea benefit to them and save money.
The Colt 1911 Model .45ACP was the standard issue service pistol in earlier years, and is still issued even today. It is one of the most reliable pistols ever made and is still a very popular gun. But in recent years the standard issue side arm of the military has been the Beretta M9, which is a 9mm… semi automatic service pistol. There is also a new service pistol that the military has started to use, which is the Smith and Wesson M&P semi automatic service pistol. The M&P stands for Military and Police. It is most commonly chambered in 9mm and .40cal for the military and police but there is also a .357 version available. Added: Currently Military Investigative Agencies like Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Navy Criminal Investigative Service, and Army Criminal Investigations Division carry Sig Sauer P226 (also known as the M11), chambered in 9mm. There is ongoing discussion and testing of new and larger caliber weapons, however none has made it to front line units like mine. The main problem with issuing a weapon chambered in a larger caliber than 9mm is the U.S. Military's involvement in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) which requires Military units operating under its purview (which the U.S. does) to only use pistols chambered in 9mm. Until an agreement is made or a policy changed I do not see the U.S. Military using 9mm pistols in a deployed environment. The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is exempt from these requirements, because of its maritime law enforcement mission, and has switched to the Sig Sauer P229 chambered in 40 caliber, this occurred in 2006. However, USCG units who are deployed in support of NATO operations (Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom) are required to use the Beretta M9. It should also be noted the 9mm round the U.S. Military uses is required to be a full metal jacket (FMJ), not a hollow point. Which, as any ballistics expert will tell you, goes through bodies and other material, instead of stopping in them. In police work, however, one needs the ballistic projectile to expand and stop (preferably inside the suspect) releasing its kinetic energy. When bullets go through people, other people are put at risk. Again, the USCG is exempt from using FMJ rounds during law enforcement mission, only while supporting NATO operations. The USCG now uses a hollow point round. ( Full Answer )

The debate is over whether women should be allowed to take up combat roles in the military- mostly ground combat roles such as artillery, cavalry and tanks and such, and especially infantry. They are currently not allowed to serve in such roles, though they can engage in combat as pilots and a few o…ther roles. Proponents of women in these military jobs say that if a woman can handle the job physically, she should be allowed to do so. Critics of the idea cite the idea that women are physically less capable of carrying the 70 or so pounds of gear infantrymen often march long distances with, or their potential inability to carry wounded and dead comrades out of danger. They also say women would inherently distract infantrymen, and that they would be treated much more cruelly if captured by the enemy. It is a hotly debated issue and there is likely no perfect answer, but as of now the military does not believe that enough women would even be able to physically perform at a completely identical physical level to male soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines to bother allowing them to attempt training for ground combat roles. It costs a considerable amount of money to train people for these positions and if women were universally allowed into these schools and had a very high dropout rate it would be ill advised from a financial standpoint.

Seems like the late 1970's, possibly '76 or so. But many of those cigarette issued C rations hadn't been used up yet. So it was possible to grab a meal with C rat cigarettes in the late 70s.

It's as if the "C" ration cigarettes and army fatiques (uniform) left the army at the same time. ( Full Answer )

It is spelt corvus. It was a bridge on the prow of Roman ships during the First Punic War. It could be raised an lowered with pulleys. It was used to board enemy ships. The Romans adopted it to make up for their naval inexperience (they were fighting their first naval war) against the great skills o…f the Carthaginian sailors. Instead of making a complicated manoeuvre to ram the enemy ship, they sailed by its side and boarded it. It worked. However, the device was useless in rough seas and compromised the ship's manoeuvrability. It is likely that it made the sips vulnerable in a storm and that the sinking of dozens of ships in storms and the loss thousands of Roman lives was due to the corvus. it was eventually abandoned. It is not to be confused with the corvus belli, figures for wargames and collectors. ( Full Answer )
