What Is the U.S. Army?
The U.S. Armed Forces are the military forces of the United States of America. The U.S. Military is made up of five branches of armed service with several separate Army-related agencies. The five branches are the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard with the President of the United States serving as the Commander in Chief and being responsible for making final decisions and forming the country’s military policy.
There are three categories of people engaged in military service:
- Active duty soldiers working as soldiers full-time have specified hours off to pursue personal interests, travel and spend time with family and friends.
- Reserve personnel and guard forces usually have civilian jobs, but may be called in for full-time military duty. Reserve forces receive training and maintain their skills in a long-term part-time commitment.
- Veterans are retired members of the military, eligible to certain benefits and compensations for their time spent serving their country.
The U.S. Armed Forces are one of the largest militaries in terms of the number of personnel and as of this year has 1,281,900 Active Duty and 811,000 Reserve members within its ranks.
