American Military Personnel
These numbers include active military personnel who are stationed in non-engagement operations. Combat areas are too difficult to get accurate numbers from since troops are moving in and out all the time. These numbers also only include official military personnel and do not include private contractors or mercenaries since those numbers are not disclosed and their movement is too frequent. What we do know for sure is that mercenaries are being used more as the military brings troops back so we could take these numbers and nearly double the personnel abroad to take mercenaries into consideration.
