When refering to an army as a body of soldiers, the term 'army' is not capitalized. But when using the term as a reference to the U. S. Army, it is a proper noun and becomes capitalized. It is the same with the abbreviated names of the other military services. The terms (i.e., navy, Navy, air force, Air Force, etc.) can be used either as common nouns to refer to organizations of particular types of war fighters or as references to the name of specific military services of the United States.
