Hello,

I searched this site to see if my question has been addressed before, but could not find what I was looking for.

While making REPORTS of LISTS, MILITARY, I discovered all of my entries concerning military affiliation were anything but consistent.

 

example: for Confederate Army; CSA, Confederate Army 

: INF, Infantry, INFTY

: Navy, NAVY, US NAVY,

: Tenn Calv, TENN CAV, 

 

I hope you get the picture! I found some 'approved' abbreviations on the site linked below:

But they have United States Navy as USN; United States Marine Corp. as USMC, but nothing for United States Army.

Infantry is Inf., nothing for Cavalry.

 

Any sources for conventions??

Thanks,

John
