The Military is comprised of 12 Service branches: five Active Duty (Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard) and seven part-time duty (Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Army National Guard, and Air National Guard. Each branch varies greatly in service commitment, location and how its members contribute to the overall mission of protecting our country, though all branches are on the same rank-based pay scale.
