The tag military_service=army is added to military establishments and facilities to indicate that they are operated by the Army, a country's land-based military force. It is to be used for all Army units, be they Regular, full-time forces, or part-time, volunteer Reserve forces.

This tag is not to be used to map such groups as youth-based Military Cadets, military historical or re-enactment groups, or Veterans groups.

How to map

Create an area around the grounds or a node at the centre and add military_service=army to a primary feature tag such as landuse=military or military=office, to map a military establishment or facility that is operated by a country's Army
