Military Protocol refers to an individual's knowledge of policies and procedures with regards to any number of branches of the armed services. It is assumed that most people with experience in this area have at one point or another enlisted in the military, but this is not true of all cases. Lois Lane for example, is a self-avowed "army brat" with extensive knowledge of military protocol even though she has never served in the armed forces. It is further assumed that those who have served in the military possess a working knowledge of Firearms and are trained in Hand-to-Hand Combat. Experience and knowledge of military procedures does not necessarily mean that the person possessing such skills always utilizes them.
