As an infantrymen, I certainly share and understand Dave's position. I too am somewhat sensitive to the use/misuse of the word "combat". Not from a personal standpoint, but from the inferred meaning that it represents.
As an old grunt (S2 1/83 FA USArmy 72-74), I agree. But for the "normal civilian" population, combat is defined as a "struggle, fight, contest, conflict, or controversy." (Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary).

But hey, no one asked me.
