Resolved Question: Why does the US armed
I'm not from either country but I've met so many American soldiers or people from American living in Germany that were raised in a Us-military family. Seems kinda odd that there's so many or maybe it's just a major coincidence?

Resolved Question: AGAIN: How many of the
I recently received some very un-informed responses to this question and surprisingly many of you don’t think we have that many overseas military bases in other countries many since WW2. Doing some research I’ve found it difficult to get an exact number of overseas military installations but from the likes of Wikipedia and congressmen the number is somewhere between 712 and 1000. The military does admit to bases in 130 foreign countries. None of these bases are rent-free and besides the foreign aid given to these countries these bases also employ thousands of natives. We do have some joint operations with the United Kingdom; which we pay most of the cost. Think about the boom to this country’s economy if these soldiers returned home and spent their wages in this country. The military high command deploys to our overseas bases some 253,288 uniformed personnel, plus an equal number of dependents and Department of Defense civilian officials, and employs an additional 44,446 locally hired foreigners. Just to give you an Idea of the personnel over there I’ve listed the military installations in Germany alone.
From Wikipedia, Military installations in Germany only.

Anderson Barracks, Dexheim Honey Badger: Sorry 253,288 did not include the personnel in Iraq or Afghanistan! However I disagree with your presumption that our presents creates stability in Europe. If I'd stayed an additional 19 years I'd be just as f*cken smart as you apparently are! Glad I didn't. xpatinas: I don’t consider all who disagree with me un-informed I was mostly referring to an answer that indicated we had only a few military installations overseas not several hundred and that some of those countries paid us for our presents. mnbvcxz5: It seems very cut and dried to me and your response even confirms my beliefs. If not for Iraq and Afghanistan we wouldn’t need those military locations and we are only in those military conflicts because our congress can’t even honor their oath of office! LTCgross: These aren’t my numbers they are from the DD!
I appreciate and thank you for your service to my country but the only base that I would CONSIDER keeping open is Cuba. I see no reason to consider troops in Asia either. I know people that have worked 30 years at General Motors but I don’t think that qualifies them to make major decisions about its operation. jeeper_p… You would think that the pentagon might know a little more than you as to the number of overseas military bases and I’m sure there not counting individual soldiers.
Officially the Pentagon counts 865 base sites, but this notoriously unreliable number omits all our bases in Iraq (likely over 100) and Afghanistan (80 and counting), among many other well-known and secretive bases. More than half a century after World War II and the Korean Conflict, we still have 268 bases in Germany, 124 in Japan, and 87 in South Korea. Others are scattered around the globe in places like Aruba and Australia, Bulgaria and Bahrain, Colombia and Greece, Djibouti, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Romania, Singapore, and of course, Guantánamo Bay, Cuba — just to name a few. Among the installations considered critical to our national security are a ski center in the Bavarian Alps, resorts in Seoul and Tokyo, and 234 golf courses the Pentagon runs worldwide.
