Obviously but depending on the make and model of your GPS, the answer is yes.
One way is to hit the Mark button which will input the position of the place where you hit the button.
Another way is manually enter the coordinates of waypoints :-
So that waypoint 1 has xyz, 2 has xya, 3 has xyb and so on.
On the majority of new models one also has a 'Man Over Board' button,
which when hit registers a position believed to be near the incident.
