How many people in a company (military?)

Having a hard time googling, company being too common a word. Military dopers?


Here’s some previous threads:

How many men?

United States military command structure

According to Paul in Saudi, a company has about 150 to 200 people.

The size of a company also depends on the company’s job. An infantry company has ~200 troops, and is commanded by a Captain (O-3).

I suspect that medical companies are possibly smaller than that, with someone as senior as LTC(O-5) or Colonel(O-6) commanding, since the majority of that unit will be commissioned, and since the physicians enter service at Captain (O-3) or higher.

Other specialised companies may well vary from the “Captain in charge of a bunch of Platoons and Sections” model.
