Recording Military Service

Apparently TMG uses custom tags for military service, there are probably some in my database. The opinion of the webtrees developers is that custom tags are a bad idea.

The correct form is:

1 FACT
2 TYPE Military Start Service
2 NOTE This would house the content of the actual text describing this fact.
2 DATE xx xxx xxxx

instead of

1 _MILIS (or whatever the TMG tag is)
2 NOTE This would house the content of the actual text describing this fact.
2 DATE xx xxx xxxx
