United States Army

The United States Army (USA) is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for land-based military operations. It is the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven U.S. uniformed services. The modern army has its roots in the Continental Army which was formed on 14 June 1775, to meet the demands of the American Revolutionary War before the establishment of the United States. The Congress of the Confederation officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784 after the end of the Revolutionary War to replace the disbanded Continental Army. The army considers itself to be descended from the Continental Army and thus dates its inception from the origins of that force.[1]

For units and personnel who served during non-conflict periods see the sub-categories listed below. When known, profiles should be added to one of the more specific sub-categories and only added here if nothing else about the unit they served in is known, or, no category for that unit has been created.

For for more detailed service information about units and the personnel who served in the United States Army in specific wars/conflicts, see:
