When you deal with many soldiers and other personnel that was involved in one (or many) of global (or regional) events, I would rather pick from a list of of such events.
I like the historic events, but I need to indicate that this person took part in it somehow as an occupation. Saying that he was a US soldier at the time is not enough because not every US soldier was deployed to every event.

Thanks,

Maybe "shared notes" can be useful to you for this purpose.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.13

Try 'Historical Facts' - see https://www.adkins.ws/individual.php?pid=I007, & click on 'Historical Facts.'
I've also created images for US Army, Navy, World War I, Viet Nam, etc.

Yes if you create shared notes, e.g. "WW I" or "Vietnam War", you can add these notes to all soldiers who were involved in these wars. When you then navigate to the shared note, you can see a list of all involved persons in these wars.

Maybe you are interested in my just-finished historical facts module with wars and battles worldwide since the year 900: github.com/hartenthaler/german-wars-and-battles-worldwide (it is in German language).

OMG Hermann this is GOLD.

You have about 1600 entries. And I checked a few of them and zou have them all that I need.

I don't care it is in German. Good that you made it translatable.
