Dollar Bills in Military Pocket
The United States military has utilized civilians for carrying out essential tasks since the establishment of the country. As early as the American Revolutionary War, the Continental Army used countless numbers of civilian employees to handle supply and logistics issues that faced the military forces fighting against the British. This is one of the reasons that the Continental Army ultimately triumphed over the British Redcoats and their Mercenaries, who could not depend on civilian support to supply things like medical care, food, transport, carpentry, uniforms, and other essentials that help an army win a war. Since the American Revolution, more and more civilians have been employed by the United States military and the United States Department of Defense in order to carry out functions that do not need a person with military training to carry out. Today, the Army, the Marines, the Coat Guard, the Navy, and the Air Force all utilize civilians in contexts like hospitality, medical care, financial services, management, acquisition, security, training, education, family services, and a variety of other job roles. The civilian positions that are available are numerous, are located all over the world, and are not limited to persons that have prior military experience.
