United States Code Title 10 defines seven uniformed services, including the five armed forces. Add to that the seven reserve components of the armed forces and taking our state defense forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, or State Militias) as one unit (although every state has laws authorizing state defense forces, and over twenty-five states do) that gives us our total of fifteen. What follows is a roadmap from which you can learn more about each service.
