Today there are a Total of 2,475,967 soldiers in the Military. There is 507,158 soldiers in the army, 347,693 soldiers in the navy, 347,352 soldiers in the air force, 179,762 marines, and a total of 1,381,965 DODs
The best information I could find is that by law the limit for General and Flag officers is 877 for all branches. There is an exemption for an additional 12. That should bring the total to 889, but in December of 2006 there were actually 901. It's my understanding that those officers serving in non military positions, for example CIA or DOD intelligence are not counted in the authorized total.
Answer . Seven US Army, One US Marine and three US Air Force. There was also one Admiral, US Navy.
Answer . According to http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos249.htm the number of active service officers in the US armed forces in January 2005 was 210 882.
1,430,895 were on active duty in the United States military as of September 2010. Active personnel . 1,477,896. Reserve personnel . 1,458,500 .
Military officers go where they are ordered. They don't have a choice in the matter, to disobey can be considered treason.
George Washington, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, ZacharyTaylor, Franklin Pierce, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, JamesGarfield, Benjamin Harrison, and Dwight D. Eisenhower were all somekind of general and commanded troops in combat. Andrew Johnson andChester A. Arthur held the rank of general but were not in commandof combat units. Taylor, Grant and Eisenhower were career soldiers;the others only served in war time. Additionally, both Grant and Eisenhower, were given a wideresponsibility to win the US Civil War and the war in Europe duringWW 2. Also, both Grant and Eisenhower were Republicans.
As of a count earlier this year, 7. I don't know the break-down among Brig. General, Maj. General, Lt. General, 1 Lt. (3-star) General and at least 2 Maj. (2-star) Generals. I'm assuming the rest are Brig (1-star) Generals, but I could be off on the exact numbers. I would look at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, for more information about them. I know at least 2 are stationed there, 1 Lt. General and 1 (newly-pinned) Maj. General. The 1980 class of the Air Force Academy Colorado was the first to graduate women and is the main source of Generals. As more women graduate into the officer ranks, we will see more and more Generals in time. Only the US Army has a 4 star General at this time.
8 US Military Nurses were killed in Vietnam. One from a communist rocket which struck her medical facility; and Seven were killed in accidents (one jeep, one helicopter, five during Operation Babylift, when a C-5 Galaxy Transport plane crashed on take off)..
It depends entirely on the circumstances of the discharge, the number of applicants applying, the ratio of the number of applicants as compared to the number of available positions, and internal regulations of the department. Also bear in mind that different departments have different standards and different reasons for those standards. Long story short, if you have a general discharge from the military, be honest and upfront about it with the background investigator and apply to multiple departments as to find the best mutual fit for you.
The US first tried to establish a draft for use in the War of 1812, but the Congress denied James Madison's request. Prior to the US Civil War, the various colonies and later States provided the Militias and the Federal government forces in a manner that they deemed appropriate, usually by providing a bounty for their enlistment.. Lincoln received the authority for a federal draft, but the number actually drafted into service was quite small, totalling only about two percent of the force. WWI brought on the first large scale conscription effort. The third draft was for WWII and it expired as the Law of the Land in 1947 after a total of 10 million men had been inducted. Draft number four was put into place in 1948 and covered the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and ended in December of 1972.. The framework for a future draft is in place, but for now, the US operates with an all volunteer force.
There are, approximitely, five African American Generals in the U.S. Marine Corps that I know of, four are retired and one is currently on active duty. There are more, but not aware of their name's....Will add them when I find out.. They are: . MajGen Charles F. Bolden USMC (Ret.) . MajGen Clifford L. Stanley USMC (Ret.) . MajGen Leo V. Williams, III USMC (Ret.) . MajGen Arnold Fields USMC (Ret.) . Brig. Gen Cornell Wilson Jr. . "Once a Marine, always a Marine"... . Semper Fi . PFC A. Jackson Jr. USMC (Ret.) . C/1/1 . Vietnam Veteran, 1966 . Lieutenant General Frank E. Peterson USMC (Ret.)
During the cold war, the US averaged about 2 million men. During the Vietnam War, the US averaged 3 million men; after the Vietnam War in 1975, the US Military abolished the WAC's (Women's Army Corps) and WAVE's (Women Allowed to join the Navy for Emergency Service) and went to the all volunteer military. Today's all volunteer military numbers less than 2 million service members.
There have been a total of 69 female generals in the US military.That includes 19 in the Army, 28 in the Air Force, 21 in the Navy,and one in the Marines. The list of names include Judith Fedder,Carol Mutter, Frances C. Wilson, Martha Rainville, and ClaudiaKennedy.
Number of US Military Bases . There are 440 military bases in the continental United States according to a list of bases posted on the nps.gov website. Bases in Alaska (3 Army and 3 Navy) and Hawaii (5 Army, 4 Navy & Marine Corps, and one Air Force) make the total 456 for the entire United States.
Yes, an individual must be a current US Citizen to become an Officer in the US Military.
According to the 2008 USAF Almanac, the total number of aircraft in the USAF was 5,778 in 2007.
Including active duty, and reserves, around 2 million or so, percentage wise its less than 1%.
A Warrant Officer is an "officer." If the Military Policeman is enlisted or of a lower rank then, yes, the "Warrant Officer" does outrank him. However, when the Military Policeman is enforcing the law (UCMJ) then it does not matter what the rank of the other service member might be. If they are violating the Law, the Military Policeman must do his or her duty regardless of rank. Warrant Officer are commissioned outside of the normal process of selecting Officers. Usually those who are given Warrant Officer status possess training, skills or other knowledge that the Military needs at that time. In VietNam many helicopter Pilots were Warrant Officers. In the dawning age of computers many IT guys in the Military were commissioned as Warrant Officers and served for a specified time.
No, but they wear the uniform of a Vice Admiral in the U.S. Navy. In 1987, the Office of the Surgeon General (OSG) was reestablished as a staff office within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health. Concomitant with this action, the Surgeon General again became responsible for management of the Commissioned Corps personnel system. (Note: The Surgeon General does not directly supervise all Commissioned Officers; most work in PHS or other agencies and report to line managers of those agencies who may or may not be in the Corps.) In carrying out all responsibilities, the Surgeon General reports to the Assistant Secretary for Health, who is the principal advisor to the Secretary on public health and scientific issues. As "America's Doctor," they provides the public with scientific information available on how to improve their health and the health of the nation. They also oversee the operational command of 6,500 uniformed health officers who serve in locations around the world to promote, protect, and advance the health of the American People.
No. They are trained to fight if the situation should arise, but they are not placed in units which are intended for front-line fighting.

There is one African American four star general in the US military. He is army General LLoyd A. Austin III
Air Force, Army and Marine Corps . The United States Code explicitly limits the total number of generals that may be concurrently active to 302 for the Army, 279 for the Air Force, and 80 for the Marine Corps. For the Army and Air Force, no more than 16.3% of the service's active duty general officers may have more than two stars. Some of these slots are reserved by statute. For example, the Army and the Air Force, the Surgeon General and the Judge Advocate General for both branches are lieutenant generals. Officers serving in certain intelligence positions are not counted against either limit, including the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The President may also add three-star slots to one service if they are offset by removing an equivalent number from other services. Finally, all statutory limits may be waived at the President's discretion during time of war or national emergency. . http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lieutenant_general_(United_States) . Navy . U.S. Code of law explicitly limits the total number of vice admirals that may be on active duty at any given time. The total number of active-duty flag officers is capped at 216 for the Navy. For the Navy, no more than 16.3% of the service's active-duty flag officers may have more than two stars. Some of these slots are reserved by statute.

No more easily than a male felon. There are some classes of felony convictions that may be waived. For specifics on these it would best to contact your local branch recruiter.

Antonia Novello was the first woman and first Hispanic American U.S. surgeon general in 1990
Every US President is Commander In Chief of the American military, while in office. Hence, they have all served in the military while in office. It's part of the office.
with rising populations one could easily guesstimate millions of soliders. however there could be as many as 1-4million in the military alone
Ann E. Dunwoody is the first female four-star general in the U.S military in 2008
Four 5-star generals for the Army (plus one for the Air Force) and four 5-star admirals for the Navy.
The US Military has 5 branches during peace time, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. When the United States declares war, the Coast Guard falls under Homeland Security. So currently there are 4, because of the War on Terror.
Do all officers below Brigadier General in the US military see combat as much as enlisted soldiers do?
A bit unlikely... as with enlisted personnel, you'll have a lot of officers who may never leave the FOB, or may never even be deployed. And while a Colonel may be in the field with their troops, they won't be going house-to-house, kicking down doors with enlisted soldiers and junior officers.

Military members will not be furloughed if the government shuts down. Their pay has already been appropriated in the DOD budget. So, the government civilians will stay home, military members will still show up to work.
Yes, they are allowed to be in a political party. They are allowed to be active in the party as well. They can support a candidate through contributions, volunteer work etc. However, they are not allowed to use their status as military officers to promote a candidate or a political agenda. They are not allowed to go to meetings and rallys in uniform or to otherwise leverage their position for political purposes. Bottom line, they have to be careful to keep their military status separate from their political activities.
The five star general, also known as the general of the army. They no longer have one, as they are only used during wars. I believe that the last one was during WWII.
Yes. If you get ordained, you could even enter as a chaplain with a commissioned officer rank.
Yes, as long as one isn't in command of the other and the two aren't in the same unit.
Female military officers are referred to as Ma'am. All junior navalofficers are referred to as Mister or by their rank by theirsuperior officers.
It is impossible to know for sure, but there are many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) serving in the military, but it would be impossible to know exactly how many. They are not required to disclose their religion to the military, and they are not required to disclose their military service to the church. In addition, the number is constantly changing as people are joining or leaving the military or joining or leaving the church.
Since you are asking this in the section dealing with U.S. areas administered by the National Parks Service, I'll presume you're asking about "National Military Parks." There are eight, all near battlefields: Gettysburg, Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania, Chickamauga & Chattanooga, Guilford Courthouse, Horseshoe Bend, Kings Mountain, Pea Ridge, Vicksburg, and Shiloh. There are also eight national battlefields, four national battlefield parks, and one national battlefield site.
Yes, Warrant Officers exist in several military forces. In British and Commonwealth forces (as well as some European forces, particularly those liberated by British forces during the Second World War), a Warrant Officer is the equivalent of what's known as a Senior Noncommissioned Officer (E7 and higher) in the US. In the US military, Warrant Officers are a type of technical specialist neither in the enlist or noncommissioned officer ranks.

The formal rank is General of the Armies of the United States. Two US Soldiers have held this rank: George Washington and John J. Purshing. Some historians have referred to this at a 6-star general to distinguish the rank from a 5-start General of the Army (not Armies).
