Are bombing squadrons a viable category or is it too fine a detail?  My dad served in the US Navy during WWII as a radioman/gunner aboard the USS Ticonderoga in Bombing Squadron (VB) 87.  I'm new here and very new to categories.  Thanks for your patience.

J, the Navy ship categories have a main peacetime category then parallel categories for their time during wars. Some ships were involved in multiple wars. Ticonderoga now has a WWII category.

Now to figure out the Bombing Squadron.

If you would like to see a complete profile with a USAAF bomb group attached, please see one of my "pride and joy" profiles. I was proud to feature this man. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Allman-689

And I love to hear about WWII military people! LOL at "Son of a B, Second Class".

Also: this will help if you have military categories to create in the future.

I went to the Military help page you linked before I posted and didn't completely understand it.  I've been on here about three weeks and am trying to get up to speed, but for some reason that just did not click.  Thank you for taking the time to work with me on this.  

Where my dad was in the planes, it makes sense in my mind that he would have a further descriptor than just USS Ticonderoga.  Thanks, again.

The page for Allman is amazing!  Thank you for sharing it.
I agree. A wonderful profile.

J., it just takes time and a lot of work in categories, so you're already getting some of it! Hang in there.

The user who set up the military categories did a fantastic job, but didn't finish it, so I'm trying to honor his work by sticking to his system. It's pretty logical. Anyway, I hope I have done it correctly.

And thank you for the kind works, J and Pip. I did a lot of research on Lt.Allman and even wrote to one of his friends,who provided me with the photo of he and his wife.
Thank you, Natalie!  I have updated his profile with the correct categories.
Great! You're welcome.

Let me look at the WWII Navy setup. I know there are Ships so far and we have USAAF Bombardment groups, so why not Navy?
