The military of the United States is deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with approximately 170,020 of its active-duty personnel serving outside the United States and its territories.[1]

Outside of active combat, US personnel are typically deployed as part of several peacekeeping missions, military attachés, or are part of embassy and consulate security. Nearly 40,000 are assigned to classified missions in locations that the US government refuses to disclose.[2]

These numbers do not include any military or civilian contractors or dependents. Countries in which US military are engaged in combat operations are not included.
