I'm browsing through the military wiki for Dwarf Fortress and I have not figured out a way to do this.
I would like to make a squad of archers, maybe just two or three at the start. I want one to be stationed near my tunnel where I have war dogs to detect intruders. I will have an archer wall dug out so he can shoot through fortifications. That way if anyone is detected they can open fire.
But I want the other dwarves in the squad that are NOT on guard duty to practice shooting or brawling.
Is this possible to do within one squad? Or should I design a training squad and a guard post squad?
