Problem with indexing instructions for "US, Missouri, St. Louis - Military Records 1916-1939
I noticed a potentially big problem in the indexing instructions for the following project: "US, Missouri, St. Louis - Military Records 1916-1939." In your instructions, you state that the "Military Service Branch" should be listed as the company in which the person was located, while the "Military unit" should be listed as "army, etc." However, this is incorrect. In military records, the "Military Service Branch" should be the branch of the military in which the person is enlisted: "The U.S. military has six branches of service: the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Space Force. Join the Military | USAGov https://www.usa.gov › join-military" The Military Unit is the "company, infantry," etc.
this means you potentially have thousands of military records that are incorrectly indexed.
