So, how does the US Army Camillus knife compare to the SI or Soldier?

I wouldn't know about that. I think most of us are waiting for an answer to your OP. Many Swiss Army Knights might not know about Camillus.

Over the years, there have many reports of broken backsprings with the issue Army knife. They are good knives generally but the Soldier knife is superior IMO.  I have two a '77 and an '04 and haven't had any trouble but ALOX SAKs get 100 times more use than the Army knives at my house.

I have a 1993 Camillus US Army knife and if I compare it to a Victorinox alox Soldier knife the Vic wins in my opinion.

The awl on the Vic works much better.

The cap lifters on both knives are similar, but the Vic has a little wider screwdriver tip on it.

The Vic can opener is, in my opinion, much quicker to use. The Camillus can opener is the claw type that goes clock wise around the can.

The main blade on the Camillus is similar in shape to the Vic.

Here are pictures of a Camillus and a Vic for comparison

I will say this, solid but not as good.  The backsprings are known to snap on the "Demo" knives easy.   The can opener is less efficient.  Bottle opener/screwdriver combo is longer, but doesn't have sharpened edge, earlier versions will have a "thumb stud" to act as a pin punch to aid in working on firearms. Punch isn't sharpened, so won't ream as well.     Snap on my 1961 Imperial is better than a 1993 Soldier I own.   That's about the only thing that's better.
