The United States Army remains one of the most powerful forces in the world based on recent combat experiences, equipment and training.
The United States Army maintains a long-standing tradition dating as far back as 1775 when the first companies of 'riflemen' were formed by the Continental Congress. The branch went on to see notable (and extensive) combat actions through many of America's subsequent commitments including the Revolutionary War (War of Independence), the War of 1812, the American Civil War, World War 1, World War 2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf War and - more recently - U.S. Army personnel have been involved as part of the War in Afghanistan and the Invasion of Iraq. NOTE: The Five Star rank is generally reserved for wartime but is also bestowed as an honorary rank in some cases.
