Topic: Branches of past presidents


I have looked around the internet to find a site or source that has the different branches of each president of the United States of America. I think there may be some tendencies for the public to pick one service over the other. Just a thought though. i have no valid sources and would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

Has anyone else seen odd tendencies in the voting poles over the last few years?

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.
