we are trying to standardize military categories. can you please delete

Category: World War II US Army Veterans (having a person in a unit implies they were a veteran)

and change

Category: US Army 3rd Armored Division


Category: 36th Infantry Regiment, United States Army, World War II ( we try to assign to the lowest level unit down to the regimental level)

on the veteran recognition, it states recalled to duty and served in Korea, so you could also add

Category: Korean War, United States Army
