Right. I just never would have been able to spot the error because I've never been military and don't understand unit structures. I'm even unsure if unit structures is the right word to describe it either.
Reporters often count support soldiers, infantry uplift, and any involved in the operation. Saw this with an interview / fly-in that Lester Holt did with then-MG Thomas to my location. Had to explain that my team was 10-strong, not 30 (ANA SF, CST, infantry uplift).
