Serviceman

 

a person in active military service.

Each serviceman has a military rank (in the USSR, for example, these include riadovoi [private], efreitor [private first class], serzhant [sergeant], leitenant, and kapitan, among others). According to their service status and military rank some servicemen, in relation to others, may be superior or subordinate, senior or junior. Every Soviet serviceman takes a military oath of loyalty to his people, the Soviet Motherland, and the Soviet government.
