Military Personnel

Military personnel is a blanket term used to refer to members of any armed force. Usually, personnel are divided into military branches roughly defined by certain circumstances of their deployment. Those who serve in a typical large land force are soldiers, making up an army. Those who serve in seagoing forces are seamen, and their branch is a navy. Marines serve in a marine corps. In the twentieth century, the development of powered flight prompted the development of air forces, serviced by airmen.
