I am Canadian and i am interested in joining the army. I am wondering why dont officers usally die in the military? For atleast canada all the
deaths are from non-commisioned officers and almost all of them are from roadside bombs. Any body have any idea why officers dont usally die? Also
any advice on how to survive patrols/fighting while being overseas ?
I know officers die, but even when I checked the death poll the only officers deaths in the past 5 years have either been from natural causes or
suicide. Mabey 1 died from an IED, dont know if it is different in America.
I was thinking more of Afghanistan actually but thank you for the info it has helped. What do you know of Military Police officers going on patrols?
Is that natural do you think? I try to get an answer out of the recruiter but he keeps on changing the subject lol.
They get killed/hurt but as jd140 said there are far more enlisted men than officers in the army. Also I get the feeling its enlisted men who are
involved in close range firefights + actions, not to say that officers don't fight but they are there for leadership and morale.
As to surviving follow/remember your instructors advice, they have done it before.
