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.

Platoon: Did you know that a platoon is four squads - generally three rifle squads and one weapons squad, normally armed with machine guns and anti-tank weapons? Lieutenants lead most platoons, and the second-in-command is generally a sergeant first class.

Now you know!

Actually, I didn't know what a platoon is and it seems silly that I don't! Thanks for explaining.
