      but there are actually seven. Who knew? With the addition of the Space Force we will have a whole octopus. From the wiki:

      The seven uniformed services are:
      United States Army
      United States Navy
      United States Marine Corps
      United States Air Force
      United States Coast Guard
      United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
      National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps

        ...be a part of the Air Force?

        •  No doubt at first (0+ / 0-)

          but in time I would expect it to become an independent branch, much in the same way that the Air Force broke off from the Army.

          Cheers
