Throughout the world, military service and civil defense have been an essential force to national security.→「古今中外」很明顯是以中文為思考邏輯的成語，英文沒有這樣的習慣用語，不建議逐字照翻，而是把重點放在「從過去到現在（古今）、舉世皆然（中外）」，所以用現在完成式表「古今」，throughout the world表中外。
For distinction of military service and civil defense, the former is a mandatory military actions based on national laws while the latter is a local organization established by civilians to protect their homeland for security and self-defense. →套用「A is …..while B is…」，這是英文中常見用來比較兩件事物的句型，相當於中文的「某甲是…..而某乙（則）是…..」
Civil defense has a long history but different names in different eras. You can learn that by checking the military service history of China. Civil defense soldiers were called Xiang-Bing (hometown soldiers) in Sung Dynasty, Ming-Zhuang (civil able-bodied men) in Ming Dynasty, Xiang-Yung (hometown brave warriors) in Ching Dynasty, and civil defense or self-guard teams in early 20th century. Their regulations and achievements may vary but the patriotism remains the same.
