Hi Bob,

There are a couple ways you could do this one of them I like to use is Recognition Boxes one specifically in there is called the Veteran Recognition some may also use the NSSAR Patriot Ancestors another way you can mark them as a service member is by Categories you could see American Revolution you can find out about more Military categories here United States Military History this is not a conclusive list but just a few I thought of.

Hope this helps.

Hello, Bob --

The WikiTree 1776 Project exists for recognizing, documenting, and categorizing our American Revolutionary War ancestors. If you put the code {{1776}} at the top of a profile, the profile will get the nifty 1776 template. And if you tag a G2G question with the 1776 tag, it will get the attention of 1776 Project leaders and volunteers.

Some of the other elements that Steven told you about are going away very soon and will soon be replaced with some new categories . See https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/416016/important-categories-for-1776-project-update for current discussion of the proposed new Revolutionary War categories, as well as template changes.
