The military has had a need for strategic language speakers for a long time now. Russian was the "thing to do" during the Cold War before it lost it's status to Arabic, and now it seems that Chinese will be the next big thing. My question is: as an officer at the junior and senior levels,how often does one use their unique language? Of course for Special Forces and Interpreters, their second language is probably spoken daily in many cases, but I am referring to the more conventional forces. Infantry, Aviators, Submariners, etc.
