Last week’s Veterans Day reminded me of specific military forces that do tremendous jobs, but often with little personal recognition. Today, these are groups of highly trained warriors engaged in assignments that conventional forces cannot do.
For centuries, specialized circles of fighting men have participated in warfare throughout dozens of countries.
In the United States, bands of armed-citizen militias fought and helped defeat the British Army, which at the time, was considered the most powerful military force on Earth. Through raids, destruction of roads and by frustrating English commanders via sniping and ambushes, the militia assisted the Continental Army by wearing down the forces of King George III.
