Did You Know...

This is part of our ongoing series called Did You Know?

This series, which you can follow by clicking on the labels/categories in our sidebar, will give you interesting facts about all things military.

At eMail Our Military (eMOM) we want to do more than help support our troops, we want to educate people and help them understand about all things military. We realize that when you know more about a specific group, you'll be better able to understand them and in turn better equipped to relate to them.

Division: Did you know that divisions perform major tactical operations for the corps and can conduct sustained battles and engagements? One division is made up of at least three brigades with between 10,000 and 20,000 soldiers. Divisions are normally commanded by major generals. Types of divisions include light infantry, armored and mechanized infantry, airborne and air assault.

Now you know!
