A great deal of the Armed Forces are not combat troops.
Most, in fact, are supportive.
It takes a team to make an army.
Quartermaster, recon, intel, combat, all the elements including maintenance etc.
Just like our bodies. A cliche again. Starting the year with them maybe I'll get better, lol!
All the parts of the human body contribute to the whole. That's not communism, it's cooperation. Each person contributes something toward the whole. It's not at the expense of any other parts. It's one part doing its job, then another , then another etc.....
And the best part is teaching the whole thing ie each person to help themselves.
In the days to come, there will be much division of labor. Each will contribute to the rest. And so on....
And each may teach others so that they are not dependent on one or a part.
Sharing a burden makes it easier to bear.
Teaching others is a gift that keeps on giving.
