** In a minor subversion, they choose warehouse duty, but not for its safety: it's because of how important supplies are to an army, and how much damage they can do by mishandling requisitions.

* ''Literature/AllQuietOnTheWesternFront'' has [[TheNeidermeyer Corporal Himmelstoss]] - until he's sent to the front as punishment, after he overdid his [[TrainingFromHell usual training method]] on an especially unlucky bunch of recruits, one of whom turned out to be son of an important government official.

** Henry Jones, a [[EnsignNewbie green lieutenant]], fresh out of [[MilitaryAcademy West Point]], showed up late in the war, desperate for field experience. Everyone smirked at him and hoped he didn't get anyone killed. After one sortie across a river, he was promoted because he was related to someone and everyone shrugged it off.

** Some of the books touch on the 597's Third Company, which (while trained for infantry fighting) are mostly specialists, such as medical staff, quartermasters, and the regimental colors band. They do see action from time to time, such as during ''The Traitor's Hand'' when a Chaos dropship lands in headquarters, and acquit themselves well, all things considered.

* Subverted in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' by the Stewards and Builders of the Nights Watch. The Rangers do most of the fighting, but the other two groups are trained warriors as well, and, while some Rangers look down on the Stewards, and it's generally seen as the least prestigious of the three, most of the Nights Watch realise that, at the Wall, the guys who make sure everyone has food and fire are very important.

** The PMC Green Moss looked down on a Legitimacy Kingdom force because they were soft from only supporting Objects while Green Moss had been fighting actual soldiers for years. Their commanding officer is enraged when some of her soldiers are killed by Quenser, viewing it as undignified. As far as Quenser can tell she doesn't really view him or his unit as human beings due to this trope.

* In ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' a majority of the military on all sides fits this trope as Objects dominate the battlefield. It's not uncommon for even units assigned to supporting an Object on a battlefield to see no combat personally.
