  • Pages, profiles, and various items related to the American Navy.
  • Ideally this would be an upper level roll up of other categories.

While we want to place profiles into more specific categories of the ship, unit, base, etc where the person served, in many cases all that is known initially from an obituary, gravestone, photo, etc is that they were in the Navy, so they can be placed here. Upon further research, if more information is discovered, moved them to that category.

  • For units and personnel who served during non-conflict periods see the Subcategories listed below.

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