US Navy Flag The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. It is the largest navy in the world, with a battle fleet tonnage that is greater than that of the next 13 largest navies combined. The U.S. Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 11 in service, one under construction (two planned), and one in reserve. The service has 318,406 personnel on active duty and 108,718 in the Navy Reserve. It operates 288 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.[1]

  • 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.
