Army Support to Combatant Commands
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 the employment of our soldiers all over the word. as of July 1, 2017
