As I mentioned in the opening post, I didn't know how many are in each career and was too lazy to do the research. I know that in WWII the Service Forces were roughly the same size as the Ground Forces, so in this exercise I put 50% of the people into the combat careers (27% infantry and 23% other) and 50% of the people into all of the other careers, which include administration, mechanics, construction, combat support, intelligence, medical, and all of the others. I have an inkling that the Services Forces (or whatever they're called today) may be a bigger proportion, but wasn't sure. So you think they're 75-80%?
