Okay, got it. Yes, indeed there is a select breed of man who chooses the hard road when he could as easily pick the couch and frat party, or regular CS or CSS units.
However, warriors are not ignorant of the risks- the further up the spear point you go, the greater the risk to a degree. While some folks choose specialties and earn the right to wear scrolls, tabs badges and other distinguishing accouterments, all face the potential of being “that guy”.
The average Joe or Jill in any uniform, but just as at risk some days as the Spartans types.
In fact, I found that after several tours with sparky units, going back to a “regular” unit seemed to have more risks than not. Less proficiency with weapons, plans that are well thought out, less than ideal support and intel and situational awareness and certainly less aplomb in carrying out the “mundane” tasks that make any and every mission a success.
Usually, the “famous” types were avoided if at all possible.
