There are five branches of the United States military forces. The army is tasked with land based operations. Anything that happens in or very near to an ocean is the responsibility of the Navy. The Air Force commands the skies, although there many less humans in the skies these days. Marines are a very specialized force in that they serve a role that supports all the other branches of the military. Marines are mostly involved in amphibious warfare. The Coast Guard serves as a Homeland security arm for all of the U.S. coasts, seas, lakes, and even rivers.
We spend a good amount of time looking at each branch of the military. We focus on the duties and demands of each of the branches. We end by talking about the ways in which the general public pays their respects to the people responsible for their freedom.
