  Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A national army is usually the arm of the military service which conducts land-based warfare (for example, the United States Army, or the French Armée de Terre).
A particular army is named or numbered to distinguish it from military land forces in general—for example, the U.S. First Army and the Army of Northern Virginia.
Armies (as well as army groups and theaters) are large formations which vary significantly between armed forces in size, composition, and scope of responsibility.

The army as operated from the time of Augustus can generally be referred to as the 'classic' legion, the armed body of men which most imagine in their minds upon hearing the word 'legion'.

 United States Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Army of the United States was re-established for the Korean War and Vietnam War and was demobilized upon the suspension of the draft.
Although the present-day Army exists as an all volunteer force, augmented by Reserve and National Guard forces, measures exist for emergency expansion in the event of a catastrophic occurrence, such as a large scale attack against the US or the outbreak of a major global war.
Upon joining the Army, all soldiers (officers and enlisted) must swear (or affirm) an oath to "protect the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, both foreign and domestic." This emphasis on the defense of the United States Constitution illustrates the concern of the framers that the military be subordinate to legitimate civilian authority.

 Army reaches breaking point   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Army's top general warned Thursday that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan 'will break' the active-duty Army unless the National Guard and Reserves are used more often and thousands of active-duty troops are added to the ranks.
Further, because nearly all part-time Army units have been called up to serve at least once in the war on terrorism and in Iraq, current mobilization policies mean that the Army must rely on individual volunteers to fill out units that are being deployed again.
Clyde Vaughn, the director of the Army National Guard, said he supports changing the policy so that citizen soldiers are called up to serve for no more than 12 months at a time.
