Army

Army, the armed force of any nation, refers to the total military land force of a country. It includes infantry, armored vehicles, artillery, different support troops and engineers, transportation, medical care and so on. The Army is the branch of US Army.

Every nation has an army comprising of both men and women. However, the training and maintenance differ from country to country. During the First World War, the single-entity of the US Army formed the National Army as the call-up force to fight conflict. This was the Officer/Enlisted Reserve Corps (ERC and ORC) existing simultaneously with the Regular Army.

Today the US Army has two divisions – Regular Army and Army Reserve. All National Guard Members are members of Army Reserve. They have two positions – Guardsman under the authority of State Adjutant General and Army Reserve under Army Human Resource Command authority.
