A Soldier is both a member of an armed force and a resident of the area they serve (In this case, specifically the United States). Although Soldiers usually serve their government, Bob Page, through his various connections, has somehow managed to privately control dozens of US soldiers; most of these are stationed in the Brooklyn Naval Shipyard, though few actually know what is going on inside the Submarine Pen. Page prefers to use his own forces, as is seen under UNATCO HQ, Paris, and Area 51, but he likely positioned soldiers at the Shipyard to make the operation less conspicuous. A Marine, Vinny, can be found in Hell's Kitchen on the players third visit.
Not to be confused with:
- UNATCO troopers, the armed forces of UNATCO.
- MJ12 troopers, the armed forces of Majestic 12.
- Riot cops, the armed police forces patrolling Hell's Kitchen after New York City falls under martial law.
- NSF terrorists, the armed members of the National Secessionist Forces.
- Chinese Military Police, the armed police patrolling Hong Kong.
- WTO troopers and SSC guards in 2072.
