Apparently spurred by the shoutdown delivered by Marine Veteran Sgt Shamar Thomas to NYPD officers in Times Square, more military Occupy groups have been started. The Veracity of the these organizations may be questionable at this moment, but what can't be questioned is the growth of the Occupy Movement, and its ability to attract Military Veterans, Active duty as well as retired and current Police Officers.

Last night I reported on the organizing of OccupyMarines and Occupy_Police, with websites and twitter information. 24 hours later its clear that motivated by the Marine effort an Occupy Army facebook page was created, throwing a friendly jab at the OccupyMarines:

Time for us to open our eyes. Time for us to get in this fight, we can't let our Marine brothers get all the glory. Our Marine brothers have started this so let's back them up!

The Occupy Navy Facebook page says:

Occupy Navy is here to support the OccupyMarines effort....

Ironically that mirrors the Navy's traditional role of transporting the Marines. Occupy Air Force jumps onboard:

We are just getting going in our support of Occupy Marines... Please share this page, Occupy Navy, Occupy Army, and of course, Occupy Marines if you haven't. We aren't going to start our own press, we are just trying to help unify the Armed Forces for a push... and the Marines, have taken the lead. We will support them!

Dispensing with the cheerleading here is a listing of facebook pages, twitter accounts and websites.

6:44 PM PT: Check out my diary from last night about Occupy Police and OccupyMarines and the shoutdown Sgt Shamar Thomas gave to Times Square NY Police, on video, made it all the way to second on the wreck list, but Meteor Blades diary held reign supreme thru the night.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
