The United States Armed Forces category is intended to be a roll up for categories for the various service branches that make up the United States Armed Forces. It will also contain categories that span multiple services such as Generals, Killed in Action, Wounded in Action, etc.

  • Individual profiles should be placed in the appropriate service branch, and only listed here if nothing is known about where they served.


  • National Archives Access to Archival Databases: Genealogy/ Personal History: Military Personnel.
