Does anyone know if there are categories available to just list the branches of US Military service?

Several members of my family (on both sides) served in the US Military.  I know there are categories for the different Medals and Ribbon only awards, as well as some of the conflicts the US has participated in (directly or as a part of NATO forces), but is there specific categories to include the specific branch of the service, like the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, or National Guard.  I think it would be a cool idea to include the Specific Branch as a Category, as well as mention it in the biography.

Thanks Zoiya Tate for best answer!!
This link doesn’t actually go to a category.
It did at one time, back in Dec 10, 2016. Thanks for the new link. These are old posts.
Of course! I should have noticed. Thanks for pointing that out Dorothy!!

Remember how Categories work. Each branch would be an upper level category which would contain divisions etc. and your profile would cut way down the line as far as you have information which is typically the unit, in a specific country during a specific war or during peacetime. Here is the Military Help Page for Categories.  Please let us know if you need help
