Squad

Squads, sections, and crews generally are the smallest organizations in tactical units. While size can vary greatly, most range from four, as in a tank crew, to ten or twelve soldiers, as in a rifle squad or mortar section. Generally, Staff Sergeants are the leaders of squads, sections, and crews.
