What are some normal jobs that soldiers perform on military bases?
If a stove has a gas leak, a plumbing issue, electrical problem, etc. Are there groups, is not the right word but we'll use it, that are trained to do these odd jobs? If so, does rank influence who does what? I'm trying to translate my Dad's Vietnam stories to what's happening on military bases 37 years later :)

There is a Civil Engineering Squadron (Air Force term) that operates the infrastructure; there is the Force Support Squadron who run the libraries, gyms, dining facilities, child care centers, etc.; the Mission Support Group...
