Factoids on the Army in 2002

The Army had in 2002 480,000 active duty troops, 565,000 Guard and Reserve troops, and 225,000 civilian employees.


40 percent of all Department of Defense personnel are with the Army.


The Army has 10 active component divisions, and 8 regular divisions and 18 separate brigades.


It has 110,000 forward stationed troops, troops overseas.


There are three pillars of the National Military Strategy:  1). shaping the international environment; 2).  responding to the full spectrum of crises; and 3). preparing for an uncertain future.

About elloborojo

Okay, as the subtitle states, this is a notebook from what I call a New Mexico diaspora (look up diaspora if you are asking). I was a former resident of New Mexico, now living elsewhere, but New Mexico is still my homeland. To get more in touch with your homeland one must be away from it. This is my attempt to understand it. I was a former anti-militarism activist in the Albuquerque area. Still believe that United Snakes militarism is the greatest threat to the world, as do the majority of the worlds population. Uncovered much information about the ties in New Mexico, but never processed it all. This blog is an attempt to do that. Also hope it may come of use to others with similar interests.
