United States Armed Forces History
The United States military is comprised of five branches: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Each branch of the military has played an important part in shaping our nation's history. All members of today's military are volunteers, although before 1973 a draft had been used to mandate military service for those chosen.
The Continental Army, Continental Navy, and Continental Marines were established by the Continental congress in 1775 just prior to the issuance of the Declaration of Independence to prepare for the revolutionary war. The Revolutionary War concluded in 1784 with the US independence, at which point, the newly instituted US Congress renamed and reorganized the Continental Army into the US Army. Later, in 1794, the US Navy was officially created and the United States Marine Corps was formed in 1798.
The US Coast Guard was officially founded in 1915, when the "Revenue Cutter Service" was merged with the "Life Saving Service" to form a new branch of the military, which is Unique to the United States. The US Air Force was established in 1947 as a response to the emerging technology of aviation which had become an important aspect of warfare and national defense and warranted its own branch of the military.
Each of the five branches of the US Armed forces is commanded by the President of the United Sates, who is also referred to as the "Commander in Chief." The US Military is operated under a branch of government called the Department of Defense. The purpose of these measures is to form a unified armed forces whereby each branch operates in conjunction with one another to defend our country.
The US Military operates with a budget of over 580 billion dollars per year and employs nearly 1.4 million service members, plus nearly 800,000 reserve members. The largest branch of the US Military is the Army, followed by the Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and the Coast Guard is the smallest branch.
Veterans of the US Military often feel a strong sense of pride for their service and have a comorodary and sense of unity among each other, especially those who served in combat.As a result of this sense of pride, it is very common for veterans of the military to display the flag of their branch in front of their homes as a display of pride.
