The branches will depend on the country in question. Some have more than others. Some have them all merged into a single group. The following are the branches of the military in the United States: Army Navy Marines Air Force The Coast Guard is currently under the control of the Departme…nt of Defense but during peace time is under the control of the Department of Transportation. The predecessor of the coast guard was the Revenue Cutter Service. The Air Force came from the post World War 2 split of the Army and the Army Air Corps (the Air Corps becoming the Air Force). National Guard the army Navy Air force coast guard spec ops special forces special activities division national guard navy seals reconnaissance division Rifle divisions military relief land relief air relief In the US, we have Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and during times of war, the Coast Guard.

In modern times the Air force has less causalities overall than any other. But this is simply because we are not fighting a advanced enemy that has reliable anti-air or a air force itself.
Answer . In the US the branches of the Armed Forces are the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marines. In time of war and when so ordered the Coast Guard is included, but normally is placed subordinate to the Navy.
The first military branch that was made was the army by president George Washington in 1775.
Facts: The Army is the largest and the strongest. The US Army trains many branches of the Military. Army trains the Marines in Artillery, HALO school, Ranger school (which is required to be a Recon Ranger in the Marines), etc.. Opinion: "The Marine Corps is the most powerful and the strongest …branch of the military. The training that the recruits endure during their 3 month boot camp or basic is more intense than all the other branches. For starters the Marines Basic is 3 months long, the Army's is 9 weeks long, the Navy is also 9 weeks long, and the Air Force is 6 weeks long. The PFT (physical fitness test) fir the Marines is with a 3 mile run the Army has a 2 mile run and the Navy & Air Force both have a 1.5 mile run."--this was the last answer, but I think that I may need to clarify slightly. If your question is in regards to numbers, than the Army for sure. If it is in regards to the highest technology, that is very hard t say--the Air Force and Navy have a lot of cool stuff, but so does the Army. If your question is about the individual soldier, then I would have to agree with the above answer--Marines all the way. This question is really hard to answer, because you were not really specific about it. ButI hope this clarifies things up for you. Answer: It is only a matter of opinion which branch is tougher than the others, not because the of length of Basic Training or Boot Camp. What exercises you have to do on the Physical Fitness Test hold no impact on the toughness of a specific branch. I will say that the Marine Corps is by far more disciplined than any other branch, but in my opinion that is based upon their brain washing and single minded thought process, where all other branches allow individuals to think individually. What is easy for one person is hard for another, the only differences in Army Basic and Marine Corps Boot Camp is the swimming portion (being that the Marine Corps falls under the Department of the Navy and will most likely be stationed at some point on a Navy ship) and that each person attends and is expected to complete Infantry school (just in case you fail the job training the Marine Corps chooses for you you can always be an Infantryman). From there it is only a matter of opinion. Another thought is that some if not most Marine Corps job training is conducted at either an Army Base or with Army Soldiers. Again it is only a matter of opinion and there is no true test or competition that has ever taken place to determine who is tougher, stronger, smarter we are all Americans who stood up and answered the call to serve the greatest nation in the world when so many others were to afraid to do so.

Congress is the legislative branch of the Federal Government which takes actions of the military.
No, it is independent of the military. It does use military people & equipment to assist. The first NASA astronauts were military pilots.
The United States Marine Corps, simper fi! Marine Corps is a Headstrong proud branch that only accepts intelligent people who meet certain Mental and Physical requirements with squeaky clean background checks. Marines are the First to Go if something happens and usually the last to leave. Marine… Corps also the smallest branch and has the smallest budget, so all the equipment is usually extremely outdated vs. what is available to the other branches. This also feeds in to the Ego " Do More with Less / SEMPER Gumby always flexible / Improvise, adapt, overcome" They Will put you through hell Physically Mentally emotionally and Treat you like Family. It takes longer to pick up rank in the Marine corps than any other branch. Army is more or less the same. They have similar requirements (Lower) as the Marine corps but they also have Waivers to get around any requirement. Unlike the Navy and Marine Corps, Orders and Rules are more a guideline than set in stone. They are the largest branch, and have a very large budget, They have a lot of really smart people that are in charge of a lot of really dumb people. They are not as tight on their restrictions as the Marine corps or Navy or Air force. They will bribe you with the enlistment bonuses to join which you will not get all up front but is still nice. They offer very similar training to the Marine corps, and a lot of pride for those who go above and beyond (Airborne / Rangers / Delta) They usually have the coolest gear and most up to date equipment. They However are the sustainment crew, deployments are a minimum of a year which would impact your ability to be with your dependants. Plus your first enlistment you will be surrounded by stupid people and automatically associated with them. Navy is well, the Navy. You will most likely be on a Ship. The Ship is your home as long as you are stationed there. That means you will most likely be separated from your family the majority of the time. You will receive great training as well as several snazzy uniforms and get to see the world. But you will ultimately suffer from lack of family time. Expect living in very close quarters. They are probably the second Safest choice with the least amount of casualties. Air Force (Chair Force) Well They have been known for the Easiest physical requirements and the strictest mental requirements. However The Physical requirements now resemble that of the Army. The environment is more like a regular office environment opposed to a Military (Hard Corp) environment. They will offer great technical training, and have the least impact on family life. They are the Hardest branch to get in to because so many people want to be Air Force. They are probably the Safest choice with the least amount of casualties. They do have the highest number of educated members. Most Air Force deployments are 6 months /180 Days. Most of the Differences in the Branches are marginal. Each branch is a good choice for someone. No matter what branch you choose remember to stay grounded, be responsible, and keep your head screwed on straight it can be a huge benefit to you as a person. ( Full Answer )

No branch of the Military Service is the leader of the military. Consider some of the following leadership elements: . The President of the US ( Executive Branch ) is the elected Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. . The Secretary of Defense is a political appointee who deals with budgetary ma…tters, organization, strategic defense planning and the big picture. . The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff provides the Commander in Chief with the very best military advice available and this post has been held by members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marine Corps. . The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA) and other government agencies provide a variety of inputs to support the military. . The Army is the largest branch in terms of numbers. . The Navy and the Air Force share first place in total available destructive power. . The Navy and th Air Force equally share the need to transport a US presence to anywhere in the world and this is where a power and position as leader of the military starts to get fuzzy. After all if the military can't reach the point of conflict rapidly and with all the tools it needs, then it is an incomplete and ineffective force. . The UK became an Empire and a world presence based on a projection of Naval power to distant shores and the ability to secure and hold that ground. . The US Navy mimics this profile of force projection supported by a Corps of Marines capable of securing a sustainable beachhead anywhere, Seals for Special Operations and a Fleet that is capable of and able to put boots on the ground anywhere in the world within 48 hours. . No service holds a pre-eminent position. . Each Branch provides a single slice of the pie that makes up an effective and complete national defense system. At it's core is the strength and mass of the US Army and the focal point of the Army is the individual rifleman. ( Full Answer )

U.S. Coast Guard USCG is the most selective service out there, considering they don't need nearly as many people as the other branches do. On average, 1 out of 100 applicants successfully make it into the Coast Guard. . Think about the last time you saw/heard a Coast Guard advertisement on the… TV or radio in comparison to the other 4 branches...it's rare! Reason being: they don't have to advertise much to keep a full workforce, hence they can be so selective on who they enlist. ( Full Answer )
Air Force, they have better equipment, food, brains, money If you want combat though than I would suggest another branch or you could go into combat control (Apprentice)

There can be no clear answer to this. Any answer given is purely subjective. However General Black Jack Pershing, US Army who knew a thing or two about warfare said that " The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle." For instance: The war in Iraq has produced more casualites for th…e US Army than any other branch, which would statistically make it more dangerous than any other branch. The flight deck crews on US aircraft carriers suffer more on the job related injuries and deaths than any other branch, so in general terms the US Navy could be considered quite dangerous. Each MOS/Tech/Rating in the US Military has a life expectancy in terms of seconds or minutes from the point of entering combat, and the lowest current life expectancy is the door gunner on a Black Hawk helicopter at 6 seconds. (The lowest life expectancy in the history of the US Military was a Pershing Missile Crewman at 30 minutes before the declaration of war ). Chinook pilots and crews have low ife expectancies in all four services, as do Osprey crews. ( Full Answer )

That all depends on what you want to get out of it. If, for example, you wanted seafaring experience, you probably wouldn't join the Air Force. If you wanted to be a fighter pilot, then you'd "aim high" at the Air Force. So you need to figure out what you want to do, what you want to get out of yo…ur experience, etc. before this question can be accurately answered. Individual Opinions: . MARINES and NAVY are the best, to many in the army, airforce you get to fly, the few the proud, the marines, marines are always called on to save the day, ww2 . The Marine Corps offers challenges no other branch of service in the U.S. has, the Marine Corps is one of the toughest and best in the World. Understand, the Army, Navy, and Air Force in their own rights are the best in the world at their particular craft, the Marines is more physically demanding therefore I say it is the best.
