    What is the numerical difference between a soldier, a troop, a platoon, a squadron...etc? I really don't think there are two people in a troop. Somebody please enlighten me.

    Leroy, the news releases come from the Department of Defense, and they do state if combat was or was not involved. What the media presents is up to themselves!

    Why do the Marines not list what happened to all Marines who are killed in combat?
