Abstract. To achieve sustainability, superfluous and negative economic activities must be made productive and positive. From the point of view of Anthropoecology, the army belongs to the superfluous economically active population and the purpose is to make it more sustainable; as well as the common criminals who can be classified in the negative workforce, directing them to a positive activity. Vast majority of soldiers receive training to operate their weapons, maintain great discipline and physical condition. The complex equipment that is currently used (2021 AD.), It is a minority who receive high-level technical instructions for normal army operations, perhaps that training allows them to work in any company or carry out some productive activity for themselves. There is the option of training privates that would like it, in a productive occupation of their choice, before finishing their service in the army, so they don’t leave empty-handed and not just like another retiree.
