In todays US Army there are 7 people in support of every soldier in a combat arms field. In the USMC there are 5 in support.

A derogatory slang term used by combat military personnel to describe other military personnel with office, administrative or support jobs. The term is relative and varies in meaning from true disdain to affection. A foot soldier might refer to all air support personnel or to other soldiers not currently in a combat zone as pogues. It's a sort-of-acronym for "People Other than Grunts".

To date, US military personnel have conducted over 70,000 combat jumps since 1942.

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.

Military personnel can receive a purple heart for receiving a combat related wound.

In WW2 there were no women combat troops. Women were only in the military as nurses or support personnel. So, in the invasion there were no women troops.

A soldier is the person that has just entered any Military force, the warrior is the person that being part of a Military force goes to combat solider=grunt or worker warrior= expert combat killer

Combat support services are for military related circumstances. The combat service support is there for the troops and to provide them with any necessities they may need while doing a tour.

Sound military training (drill), sound personnel policies, and good leadership

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.

It is awarded to military personnel, regardless of rank, for extraordinary bravery in combat. It is the highest military award in Pakistan equivalent to the VC or MoH

i did a report a long time ago in school and researched this information. On average there were only about 35,000 combat soldiers in Vietnam, on the average. Which made up only about 10% of the total American soldiers in Vietnam. It takes alot of support personnel to take care of the logistics, administrative needs, and etc... for each combat soldier. The number of combat soldiers in Vietnam rose to approximately 50,000 combat soldiers during the Tet Offensive.

Actual combat arms (infantry and of the like, ie combat engineers, machine gunners, assaultmen, special ops...etc) 8-12%. Most of the military is support, logistics and operations (maintenance, drivers, admin...etc)

Women in the military can currently serve in almost every field, except for anything having to do with combat. Women can be in helicopters and such, but they cannot serve as a ground combat soldier, or "grunt", as it is called in the marine corps. P.S. Please recommend me!

Depends on what you mean my "combat". The USAF stations fire support vehicles at every base. These vehicles are in combat zones, but no one is riding them down the streets of Baghdad. Fire support vehicles are considered non-combat vehicles. But like everything else, people can shoot at them.

The Bronze Star is a medal awarded to military personnel for acts of merit and bravery. The Purple Heart is a medal awarded to military personnel who have been wounded or killed in combat with any enemy against the United States or opposing enemy force.

It is up to you to decide which one is better. Combat arms has better graphics and is more realistic while soldier front has better game-play. People who play soldier front will say that soldier front is best and people who play combat arms will say combat arms is best. Infact, there are many more games like combat arms and soldier front that copy counterstrike. Cross Fire is an example.

As far as I know there weren't any. The Russians had women in combat roles, but I do not think the US did. Sorry, there were women in the US military, but not in combat roles is what I was trying to say....

The Purple Heart is given to any Soldier, Airman, Sailor and Marine who is wounded in combat. It is also the only medal that is not earned, but entitled.
