Army Support to Combatant
The Army has a total commitment of 183,050 Soldiers worldwide, with
106,567 Soldiers overseas in over 140 countries and another 76,483
within the U.S. and its territories supporting Combatant Commanders.
This demonstrates that regional commanders are asking more and more
of the U.S. Army. These requirements can only be accomplished
through a Total Army commitment and creates an increasing demand on
our reserve forces. This is why the current endstrength numbers
being debated in the National Defense Authorization Act are so
important to the U.S. Army.
Here are two
(rather complicated) slides from the Army Staff which illustrate
