Branches of past presidents info
Has anyone else seen odd tendencies in the voting poles over the last few years?
If you don't make your own decisions someone else will.
If you don't make yourself happy... no one else will.
If you want to make God laugh just tell him your plans!

Some things to consider. Many of our early wars were land battles and our navy was rarely involved in any great scale. Starting with WWII, we maintained a large peacetime navy. The Air Force was also a recent creation (obviously).

I went off the official bios at the White House. Didn't list Reagan's service, but I knew about it from a biography.
Since his service was missing, other's may be. Any help appreciated.
Also, I only knew of three that were definitely in the Guard. For his purposes, I didn't see the meed to separate, but maybe for clarity it's not a bad idea.
