Zero caucasians in this photo. Is anyone familiar w/ how White South Africans view military service?
I don't have much knowledge on this, but I recall either reading an article or a post here recently. The jist of it is that whites make up a larger percentage (some might say outsized) of the Army's special forces units. I believe certain factors played into it, including multi-generation service and strong physical fitness/educational backgrounds. Due to similar reasons, you'll probably see more whites serving in the officer corps and in specialized units/occupations vs. as regular enlisted.
