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.

OK - found it. The Veteran Recognition template is:

{{Veteran Recognition}}

Details on how it can be used are here:

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:
