Tourist – annoying visitor that has often travelled great distances, often wearing non-conforming clothing, and carrying cameras and recording equipment to document their adventures and tours. Also an important contributor towards the local economies they visit.
Although tourists are civilian, members of the military qualify as tourists when they are not wearing their uniforms during “off-duty” leave. Even if the military member is stationed at a nearby base, they when they visit a civilian location as civilians they are therefore tourists, although they are subject to military law. Therefore if I were going to be a tourist in a friendly Country, I would rather go as a civilian. But if I am visiting a dangerous Country, I would rather be under the protection of my own military.
