Matt
tzalaf tzva'i
Explanation:
Matt,

See my answer under 'sniper'.

For qualifiers (adjectives and such) in Hebrew, you add a term AFTER the noun.

Army (or military = same thing in Hebrew), masculine singular adjective/qualifier (military/army), would be

tzva'-I

Feminine singular = tzva'-IT

Masc. plural = tzvai'-YIM
Fem. plural = tzvai'-YOT

If you want to add \'US\', then again this is at the end:
tzalaf tzva\'i amerika\'i (or: amerikani, but I consider this less grammatically correct).
Similarly: ... amerika\'it (f.), amerika\'im (m. pl.), amerika\'iyot.

tzva\'i is spelled
tzadi-bet-alef-yod
צבאי
