    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

        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
