How many battalions make boots (on the ground)?

What the US president said he meant by “no boots on the ground,” was no “battalions” on the ground. One battalion consists of between 300 – 800 boots. So, when we hear “boots” we should understand that 299 “boots” do not mean “boots.” But we know that there are at least 300 boots on the ground. Maybe the sum of bits of different battalions don’t qualify as a battalions?

We battle on.
