Since I'm a jarhead, I don't quite understand the Army as well as I do my beloved Corps. So if anyone has any ideas on how to improve this template (or if I've included something not appropriate or out of order), please let me know. bahamut0013 19:12, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

To Bahamut0013: Wouldn't the Chief of Chaplains be put in the leadership section? The Sergeant Major of the Army is the highest ranking enlisted man and an advisor to the Chief of Staff. The Chief of Chaplains of the Army is the highest ranking chaplain and is also an advisor to the Chief of Staff. Rockhead126 (talk) 06:47, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Field armies missing[edit]

Just wondering why not all of the field armies are listed in this navbox. Thanks -- (talk) 21:15, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello fellow Wikipedians - Kindly consider changing the "History and Traditions" section listing of the Template:US Army navbox to include a link for the Seventh Army Symphony Orchestra which was staffed by members of the Seventh United States Army for over a decade (1952-1962) in Germany and provided a vital service in support of cultural diplomacy throughout Europe in the post World War II era. Its performances supported the morale of service members throughout Europe and also dramatically improved peaceful relations with the vanquished peoples of Germany and Italy as indicated by the High Commissioner to Germany James B. Conant. It was also the only professional symphonic ensemble ever created under the direct supervision of the United States Army. Its performances earned the founding conductor Samuel Adler the Army's Medal of Honor for services to music. The link can be included within the text at the very end of the listing as shown here:

History and traditions:_
History - Continental Army - Union Army - National Army - Army of the United States - Center of Military History - Institute of Heraldry - America's Army - Army Art Program - Flag National Museum - West Point Museum - Rangers - U.S. Army Regimental System - Soldier's Creed - "The Army Goes Rolling Along" - Division nicknames - Draft Service numbers - Seventh Army Symphony Orchestra

 Done, seems like a reasonable addition, there's plenty of space for it. Fish+Karate 13:58, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
