Military service

+6 votes
I have several family members that served in the military Vietnam, Korea, World War II, I think World War I, Revolutionary War, Civil War, War of 1812, and French and Indian War.  Is there a way to Mark these and if I know if they have metals to put those in for instance my brother was a Marine and fought in Vietnam, he has a purple heart and I believe a silver star.

Several ways to do so.

You can add a military recognition template to their profiles.

You can add categories to recognize their service during a particular conflict or time period.

You can add categories to recognize their awards or medals.

Let me look those up and I'll add additional detail below.

Almost forgot, you can also get WW II categories (like United States Army, World War II) from here:
Other wars can be found in a similar manner. Starting here:
