    Difference between the usages of "each" and "every"

    I'm discussing the subject with friends. They all agree the following usages. Can you explain to me?

    1. Each soldier has a gun.
    2. Every soldier in the army has a gun.

    Are the sentences correct?

    They're both correct.
    I am not a teacher.

    ... whether or not you include 'in the army'.

    Hi Rover,

    Does it mean there's no difference between these two sentences?

    No. It means that they are both grammatical.
