The armed forces is one of the institutional organizations, but on the other side it is nothedged off from the outer world and local ociety. Goffman pointed out that the armed force is an example of a "total institution", a place for work and life where a large number of individuals with a similar status, live together for an extended period of time, isolated from wider society and forced to live a common, formal and guided life. This paper examines the relationship between the armed force and the society.
