#4 Isn't 150 generally considered a company-sized unit? Maybe the "Martyr Rokan Company" doesn't quite have the same ring.

#5 ..yes, a company. Roughly 40 per platoon, 3 platoons per company, plus company overhead [ones and twos for supply, maint, admin, trans, med, etc].

#6 A Special Forces Company or "B Team" is comprised of a small HQ element [Company Commander, XO, SGM, S-3, S-4, Supply Sergeant, a few other enlisted] and 4 to 5 "A Team's" of twelve men each. Less than 80 folks if my memory serves me correctly.

#8 We used to call it a Commando, and then 9 Troop disappeared. Wasn't there no more. Political, I guess.

#9 About the 95 -- shouldn't that be an even number? I am becoming concerned...

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
