Ordnance Corps, May 14, 1812

The Ordnance Department was established by act of Congress on May 14, 1812. During the Revolutionary War, ordnance material was under supervision of the Board of War and Ordnance. Numerous shifts in duties and responsibilities have occurred in the Ordnance Corps since colonial times. It acquired its present designation in 1950.

    • That’s what I found using only the Army official website. I need to broaden the list to add the other services – Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and now the Space Force.

      When I checked on JAG recently, all of the above, except the Space Force, have their own version. I am sure once the Space Force gets up and running, it will have its version of JAG.
