I'm just gathering info for a small strategy game project of mine, that list is more than enough for me, gives me a good grasp of what i could use.
There is no doubt a lot more but would probably need you to focus you question into something more specific in which to provide more focussed information

This is all done, with a semi complete GDD. The only thing missing is the different soldiers I want to implement and their roles.
Define the rules of your game, and then make it fit into a setting.
In my game this is the role of the player. He controls a squad (which he puts together himself based on need and playstyle) on a battlefield.
More to the point, I loves me some BF2, so I'd recommend having a Squad Leader role, an otherwise unremarkable player who is empowered with the ability to request support in the form of remote arty strikes, supply packages or vehicles based on the team's needs. A guy who can hunker down behind cover, fire up his minimap/radio/iPad and set some waypoints and/or objectives, providing guidance and sub-objectives to his mates in the heat of a chaotic battle.

My IP was banned from that website , even though I've never entered it. Maybe I'm viewed as a terrorist cause I live in Turkey? =)
That question will have a lot of answers depending on what you are looking for.
Are you thinking of a squad, platoon, division?
Are you concerned with stuff like admin, mechanics,cooks, etc., or just combat arms?
I didn't dig too deep into this, but I'm sure you can find plenty here.
M.O.S (Military Occupational Skills)is probably the acronym you are looking for.

Yeah and we have good relations with the US government, Dick Cheney even visited some months ago. It was meant more as a joke, don't know why they ban my IP and it surely wont change my life not being able to visit it.
Last I recall Turkey was a member of Nato and thus an ally of the "Western World". However the easiest way to check would get someone else over there to see if they can access it.
