|The French Foreign Legion has a consept wher all members have extensive military training. Every one in the legion can face the enemy with weapon skills that equals and sometimes surpas any modern infantery. So any atack on a legion base or camp will result in every man in that camp is redy to defend himself and the camp. Engeneres, drivers, clerks and cooks all join in.
The US army and meny other armies use civilian cooks, drivers and so on. Or military clerks with low to none basic training.
Whats the purpose? Save money? Dosent every civilian convoy nead a millitary escort anyway? And PR vice how good are civilian casulties?
