WAND's New United States Armed Forces Taxonomy

Over the last year, we have developed several new taxonomies, in various areas, to help turn a taxonomy project from a challenging build to a simple edit. The WAND United States Armed Forces Taxonomy is one such taxonomy that we have recently added to our collection of Governmental Taxonomies.

This taxonomy provides a foundation of 8,142 terms and over 11,800 synonyms covering

U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. National Guard, U.S. Space Force, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Navy.


Terms that are relevant to a specific branch of the Armed Forces include Leadership, Units, Battalions, Companies, Divisions, Ranks, Training and Education, Weapons, Aircraft, Ships, Vehicles and Equipment, and Personal Equipment.


This is a foundation taxonomy. What does that mean? Simply, our taxonomies provide an 80% starting point that can be customized with terms that will lead you to the specific areas that will meet your needs.


As with all of the WAND Taxonomies, the WAND United States Armed Forces Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
