The Roman army, like all other ancient armies was started because of a need for defense. From a defensive organization, armies grew to offensive bodies in order to secure their lands and wield power over others.
Armies have been around for thousands of years. It is therefore difficult to say when and where they started
The Salvation Army was started by former Methodist lay preacher William Booth, and his wife.. Lack of work for lay preachers led him to open-air evangelising on the English streets and Kennington common. In 1851 Booth joined the Wesleyan Reform Union, but when his repeated requests for more time fo…r evangelistic campaigns were refused by his church, he resigned from the ministry and became a full time evangelist.. The Salvation Army was born in 1865 as the East London Christian Mission. Not only did Booth preach, but he rallied helpers to offer practical assistance to the underprivileged. In 1878, the organisation became known as the Salvation Army. ( Full Answer )
If an Officer, you can resign. If enlisted, you would have to give 'GOOD' cause for seeking discharge. Help support family. Take care of elderly parent(s). OR confess to drug usage, criminal behavior, mental illness, homosexual activity, etc, etc, etc. All of which you would have to prove. Enlist…ed soldiers it is much more difficult, if you are looking for a discharge I'm sure you will find one but it will cost you a lot more than just the opportunity to go home. Basically, in today's Army you will have to more or less break the law or commit a felony offense and even still you may not be discharged, its the Army choice, your under a contract. (While breaking the law may get you discharged, having a girlfriend/boyfriend or spouse get a Domestic Violence restraining order on you is the safest. It's not a criminal charge, but the Lautenberg amendment forbids you carrying a weapon after that.) In the old days if you were not able to maintain the Army's Height/Weight standards or pass a Physical Fitness Test or even say that you are CRAZY then you could easily find yourself discharge or kicked out, not so much anymore.

Answer . Good question. The uniforms of the American Revolution were very plain and there was little to no military branch identification insignia on the tri-corner hat. From the period of the War of 1812 until the Civil War (1861-1865), the United States Army Infantry regulations called for a bugl…e horn badge of slight variations on soldier's caps to identify the Infantry branch of the Army.. On November 19, 1875, the U. S. Army Regulations called for the crossed rifles insignia to replace the bugle as the cap badge of the U. S. Infantry, which followed the design traditions of the crossed sabers and cannons of the U. S. Army Cavalry and Artillery branches. By 1898, the crossed rifle insignia began appearing on the collars of U. S. Army infantry uniforms. Since 1898 to the present day, the crossed rifle insignia has been traditionally displayed on the collars of United States Army uniforms. However, the crossed rifles cap insignia has been replaced with other types of badge designs.. Reference: Urwin, Gregory J. W., The United States Infantry, An Illustrated History 1775-1918.

Around the 1730's and they started using the 1 shot rifles around the 1740's I do not know the definitive answer but armies were using guns in Elizabethan I times (1533) so the above answer must be wrong.

The US Army defends the United States and they help there allies they have control of the whole USA but of course to us there our freedom!
The answer depends on what you mean by "better". If by "better" you mean "what would happen if you dropped a unit from the British Army in a field with a similar unit from the US Army and made them fight it out, who would win?," many would give a very slight lead to the British. More specifically, t…he average British infantry section is probalby a bit better than the average US infantry section. But if you mean "who would win a war" then the answer is, hands down by orders of magnitude, the US Army. This much should be obvious to even the most casual observer. For every rifle in the field there is anywhere up to seven support troops that are absolutely essential to that one rifle. These include logistics, artillery, air, intelligence, transport, etc. In these areas the British Army is, and has been for a while, quite deficient. This is true for most armies in the world, actually. Without US support the British Army would be unable to support its mission in Afghanistan, where it receives practically everything other than uniforms from US supply lines. As the Falklands clearly demonstrated, the British Army is *just* capable of supporting itself in a very limited battlefront against a 3rd world army. Note that it is the *stated intent* of the British armed forces to only operate as part of a supporting coalition. Now that might sound harsh, but the same is true for every army in the world except the US. Canadians learned that the hard way in 1986, when their "rapid reaction force" (called CAST) required two years of planning and 21 days of sailing to deploy to Norway. Yet by the same measure, every man in that force was at least the equal of the US troops of the same era. Simply put, no one else has the communications, airlift capability, intelligence assets, sealift and escort, etc., that the US has. And *that* is what wins battles and wars. Global-scale operations are beyond the capabilities of almost every other army, including the Chinese, and likely the USSR as well. Let's put some numbers to this. The active US Army has about 450,000 men. There are about 250,000 in the Navy and another 250,000 in the Air Force. So every person in the field is supported by about one more in another force backing them up. The British Army has just under 100,000 with 39,000 in the Navy and 48,000 in the RAF. So every British soldier has less than one man backing him up. It's that simple. A former British soldier adds: For the record, the British Army is excellent: training standards are extremely high, & junior leadership (especially NCOs) outstanding. Without doubt, British soldiers (especially the Infantry) are some of the most thoroughly trained & best disciplined in the World. Tactical & field soldiering skills are of a very high order: on numerous NATO exercises basic British "line infantry" units (often Territorial part-timers) would run rings around "elite" units of other armies. That stated, however, the British Army is relatively poorly resourced (although things have got far better recently!), & there are significant deficiencies in things like utility helicopters. Battlefield communications have also been a problem - again, to some degree now remedied, but the US Military is far ahead in battlefield applications of IT. American soldiers are well trained & highly competent. They may not, on average, have the same level of individual training or skill as their British colleagues, but they're far better resourced and supported, & there are far more of them. The blunt reality is that for serious war fighting mass has its own quality! The excellence & scale of US Army logistics, plus ready availability of CAS assets (especially helicopters), means that American combat units have a range of tactical options (eg large scale air manoeuvring or "vertical envelopment" etc) that generally are not available to British units. Finally, but by no means least, the US Army has developed & nurtured a "learning culture" resulting in a great readiness to adapt rapidly to changing circumstances. Institutionally, the US Army of today favors fast learners, & is very open to innovative thinking. This used to be a great strength of the British Army but in recent decades, for complex reasons, it seems somewhat to have lost its way & become rather mired in "Cold War" thinking. Again, this is now changing fast - there's a concerted drive to reshape the institutional mind-set and reinvigorate thinking etc, but it should not be forgotten that it's the British who are following the American lead here, not the other way round!

Well they were around when Richard I Lionheart was killed by one in 1199, but I don't think they were at Hastings in 1066, so that narrows it down to 130 years or so..... & then I look it up to find that the Chinese had them... wait for it, in the 5th century BC !!!
Assuming by 'he' you mean William Booth: Because the other denominations did not help the poor enough, in fact most of them still charged for the best seats. Booth stater the Salvation Army for these people.
William Booth started it in 1865 (although it wasn't called "Salvation Army" until about 1880.
The Salvation Army's beginnings date back to 2 July 1865 when a Methodist minister named William Booth began preaching to and helping the poor and underprivileged in London. By 1867 it had developed into a ministry offering basic schooling, reading rooms, penny banks, soup kitchens, and relief aid… to the destitute. ( Full Answer )

The US Army recognized the Stars and Stripes on the day it was adopted as the flag of the United States of America, 14 June 177.
The US Army is tasked with the military operations based on theland. This is the main arm of the Armed Forces of the UnitedStates.
The United States Army works as a single military force, and is not split up into smaller 'armies'. Rather, the Army is split up into companies, which are groups of platoons sent on a particular mission. A platoon consists of squads, which are made up of a handful of individuals. There are sometimes… around 200 enlisted men (as well as 4 or 5 officers) in a company and about 40 in a platoon. A company generally has about 3 to 5 platoons of men. ( Full Answer )

The traditional date for the foundation of Rome is 753 BCE. As a city, it had its citizen militia to defend it and its lands, so its army dates from then. Whether 753 is accurate we don't really know but archeological evidence supports something like this. There is evidence of earlier villages on… the hills, but if we are talking about Rome, this is about as good as it gets. In the 1980s an Italian archaeologist found a gate of a wall near the Palatine Hill which has been dated to the 2nd quarter of the 8th century BC. This may be the wall that Romulus was said to have built around the Palatine Hill when he founded Rome. In 2005 the same archaeologist published the details of further finds. He said that he found the foundations of a royal palace and the temple of the goddess Vesta which have been dated to the same time. These finds also may support the date of the foundation of Rome. Romulus was said to have formed an army of 3,000 infantrymen and 300 cavalrymen. ( Full Answer )
Well in a sense. The founder William Booth was a Methodist preacher originally. But The Salvation Army is a Protestant church or more specifically Wesleyan Protestant.

The British army. US Army- 1775 US Air Force- 1947 Until 1947, the Air Corps was part of the US Army.
The British Army came into being with unification of the Kingdoms of England and Scotland into the United Kingdom of Great Britain in 1707.
It's a rather unspecific question. It is probably fair to say they didn't get on when they opposed each other, namely in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812! But they fought as close allies in both world wars, once America chose to join those conflicts. And while there were of course rivalries… and disagreements, the word "hate" certainly isn't appropriate to describe them. Since the end of the second world war the two countries have been about the closest allies of all NATO, and fought together in Korea, both Iraq Wars and presently Afghanistan and Libya. Of course there remain political differences from time to time - British people are outraged that America is equivocal at best over the Falkland Islands, given how much British blood has been spilt in what the public generally considers "American Wars" in the Middle East, and on an operational level friendly fire incidents have caused great distress, but to say the British army hates the US army nowadays would be totally inaccurate.

The Ia Drang battle in Vietnam (1965) was it's first large combat test. See film: "We Were Soldiers..." Ia Drang was an experimental engagement involving "Airmobile" units, the new "UH-1 Iroquois" helicopter (commonly referred to as the "Huey"), and the new M-16 Assault Rifle (commonly referred to a…s the "Mattel" toy by GIs). Boys growing up in the 1950's and 1960's grew up with Mattel toy guns...television commercials in the 50's/60's were always full of guns, beer, cigarettes, westerns, and war movies. Popular toy guns were the "Fanner Fifty" (from the Gunsmoke TV series), "Johnny Reb" cannon; "Wanted Dead or Alive" bounty hunter gun, a cut off lever action carbine, etc.. So by the time those boys were old enough to get drafted, they went to Vietnam and saw the "new toy plastic gun" the M-16 rifle; and called it a "Mattel.". Prior to Ia Drang, the US Army was using M14 service rifles, the CH21 Shawnee and CH34 Choctaw Helicopter, and "Airborne" Divisions already existed (those were created in WWII), while "AIRMOBILE" Divisions were only being tested in Vietnam.

World War II in Europe is generally agreed to have begun when Nazi tanks rolled into Poland on September 1, 1939. It would be another 27 months before the US entered the war. On September 3, 1939, the US Army got a new commanding general when George C. Marshall was sworn in as the new Chief of Staff…. Marshall inherited an army that was the 21st largest in the world, right behind Bulgaria. The US Army was primed and equipped to refight WWI, and Marshall had a huge task to expand and modernize, and completely reorganize the US Army. There were less than 250,000 officers and men when Marshall began his work. In 1940, Congress passed the first peacetime draft in American history, to draft one million men into the Army to serve for one year. This draft legislation came up for renewal the next year, in August 1941, and passed Congress by the margin of a single vote. The million men drafted in 1940 were not let out after a year, as they had been promised, and were generally pretty aggravated about it. By December 1941, when the US was in the war, the US Army still numbered less than two million, a smaller force by far than that which Hitler had sent against the Russians in the summer of 1941. But, by the end of the war, under Marshall's guidance, the US Army had expanded to over eight million men and was victorious around the globe. Marshall was also in charge of the Air Force, which was still the US Army Air Force until 1947, so he commanded another three million men there. ( Full Answer )

Adolf Hitler. Answer The Nazis (National Socialists) were not an army. They were a political party, and Adolf Hitler did not start it. Hitler joined the Nazis and climbed his way to the top. Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, and in 1935 he disposed of Ernst Rohm who was his last seri…ous Nazi rival. The German Army could have opposed Hitler and got rid of him before World War 2, but they largely supported him because they saw him as the ticket to restoring the glory they lost in the humiliating defeat of World War 1. Even today, long after World War 2, many people still believe that all Germans in World War 2 were Nazis. And it is probably believed that only a German could be a Nazi, but there were also French Nazis, Dutch Nazis, American Nazis, and other Nazis. Today there are Nazis legally organized in many countries, except for Germany which outlawed the Nazi Party after World War 2. ( Full Answer )
Its generally agreed that the Army's birthday was June 14, 1775. That day the Second Continental Congress voted to adopt the force then keeping the British penned in Boston. That force was loosely amalgamated as the New England Army, and consisted of militia units which had flocked to the area after… Lexington and Concord. The following day George Washington was commissioned by Congress to lead the army. Congress selected Washington, a southerner, in the hope of garnering wider support for the war. A few days later, before Washington could reach Boston, probably the bloodiest battle of the war took place at Bunker Hill. ( Full Answer )

Who was the general in chief of the us army when the civil war started and developer of the anaconda plan?
General Winfield Scott - a most distinguished soldier who was far too old for the job. He was one of the few leaders who realized that it would be a long war, and his 'Anaconda' plan - slowly squeezing the life out of the Confederacy - was very sound, and also very similar to the plan that the Unio…n did eventually put into effect. But it was ridiculed at the time for being too slow and ponderous, and in his frail state of health, he would obviously have to be replaced before long, so he was not in a position to fight his corner.

Soldier for soldier, it's doubtful that the PLA would outperform the US Army. As for the question, it's much more complicated. China has the world's largest standing army, but it is geared for defence, rather than force projection. Thus, if China were to try invading the US mainland, it would most… likely fail. But, were the US to try invading the Chinese mainland, it would also result in failure. ( Full Answer )
Well that all depends like the US has lots of allies that could help like Australia UK New Zealand and so on. it also depends on where they battle like if it was US invading China or China invaded the US but over all America would win with all it's allies and weaponry. Such a confrontation would …almost certainly lead to the deployment of nuclear weapons. While the US has an on-paper advantage in this regard, the Chinese arsenal is sufficient enough that havoc would be wreaked on both countries and their neighbours. ( Full Answer )

The answer to this question is and will always be biased. Your country will allways be the best. America is one of the most well know and most reputable military forces in the world.

It was started to raise money for the weak and poor and fundraise for children who have problems.
Colt was manufacturing it since 1986, and a handful of select units received them. The US Army "officially" adopted it and gave it the nomenclature of M4 in 1994.
The M577 is essentially an M113 with an extended roof. They were produced with diesel and petrol engines. They start basically the same except with the diesel you need to turn on the ignition and wait about 15 seconds before you attempt to start the engine. Turn on the ignition switch and push the s…tarter button on a petrol made before 1964 which is the only one I have ever driven.
