I must agree with Cleburne fan to be a member of the armed forces one would receive pay, be carried on a unit muster role, and hold a rank. If teamsters, cooks, laundresses, servants, and other types of camp followers are to be counted, then the truck drivers, catering staff, laundry providers, and other CIVILIAN support staff who support our military all over the wourld  would be considered military personell.

I understand that personell in those positions may have come under fire or responded in an armed manner, however they should not be considered soldiers.
