The current code is:

       {{World War II |branch=Us Army |started 02 Jul 1943,=; unit2|enddate=service end date|unit=Harrisburg, PA )|rank=Sergant|image=image file}}    

Some of the parameters (the part before the =) do not have a correct setting (the part after the =).

The example given on the page on the sticker is:

{{Korean War|branch=United States Navy|units= USS Missouri (BB-63)|unit=USS Missouri (BB-63)}}

I would try with:

{{World War II |branch=Us Army|units=Harrisburg, PA|unit=Harrisburg, PA )|rank=Sergeant}}     (I have not tried).

The images do not shown as the name for them are not really images but example names.

Red at the bottom means that the category that was created from the items in the template is not a current category, usually meaning something is misspelled or not formatted correctly.

Branch has to be spelled out as United States Army.

Start and end date have to be a date. If you don't have them, leave those parameters out of the template.

Unit and units would only be Pennsylvania, I think.

In the enlistment Source, Harrisburg, PA is where he resided or enlisted, but he would normally just go into the State unit which is what is shown on his gravestone.
Unit is not a state or location in the WWI and WWII stickers.
That isn't what I intended. My intent was that 'Unit' should not be entered as the city where he enlisted which is in the enlistment source and was entered as Unit and Units in the profile template.  In the World Wars, they didn't have the State units, as some of the earlier units did.
Thank you so much for the help and explanation
