0000284: Military Training: Odd Behavior
3 of them became recruits and showed up on the archery range for a Dodge demonstration.
The other 3 hung out around the wagon--in civvies--with the job "attend dodge demonstration" (one was actually "wait for combat training")
I set my militia of 6 dwarves to train (managed to get all the steps) and set it to a minimum of 3 dwarves needed.
I then changed it to needing 5 dwarves minimum and suddenly everyone went civilian, clustered around the wagon for a minute or two, then 5 of them turned recruit and went back to training. 0000006 has the job "attend dodge demonstration" while standing around at the wagon as a civilian.

They also refuse to pick up crossbows despite being set to the default "Archer" uniform.

I notice that my military dwarves will deactivate at the change of a month, wait a week, reactivate and be upset at their self imposed draft.

I've also experienced the Dodge/Train in Archery range issue. So far it's the only thing my dwarfs will do in the archery range.

My marksdwarves will NEVER do archery practice despite plenty of crossbows, quivers, and ammo being available and assigned.

+XenoZergie: ...and with archery targets set as a room, with a valid shooting direction, and the squad set to train there.

(I've only ever seen dwarves do training demos of Dodging and Striking...)

They shouldn't do non-archery at archery ranges as of 0.31.11, though old saves with active tasks will finish them up there.
