The United States Army is the branch of the United States Armed Forces, responsible for land-based military operations. It is the largest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven uniformed services, and one of four featured in the Medal of Honor series.


The modern Army has its roots in the Continental Army which was formed on 14 June 1775,[1] before the establishment of the United States, to meet the demands of the American Revolutionary War. Congress officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784[2][3] after the end of the war to replace the disbanded Continental Army. The Army considers itself to be descended from the Continental Army and thus dates its inception from the origins of that force.[1]

In Medal of HonorEdit

The United States Army has appeared in every game of the Medal of Honor series to date. Prior to 1946, which is when most of the Medal of Honor games, the United States Army was split up into three contingent groups: the ground component, a logistics and supplies component and the Army Air Forces, meaning during World War II, the Air Force was actually a division of the United States Army. The Office of Strategic Services, an intelligence organization under the jurisdiction of the United States government was a largely Army unit, its commanding officers, Stanley Hargrove, Michael Paul Floyd and William Donovan all members of the United States Army, as well as agents Mike Powell and James Steven Patterson. Although today, the United States Army as a whole does not practice amphibious tactics, during the Second World War, some of their greatest operations were via the sea, including Operation Overlord and the Invasion of the Philippines.
