Another one-point-two million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces.About two million military retirees and military family members receive benefits.

    This nation’s security depends on our defense installations and facilities being available at the right place and at the right time and very capable (with the right qualities and capacities) of protecting our national resources. Those resources have never been more important than in today’s environment where America must fight terrorists who would plan and carry out attacks on our facilities and our people. The Defense Department manages a comprehensive inventory of installations and facilities to ensure our nation has all the assets necessary to keep Americans safe. The Department’s physical plant is huge by any standard, consisting of more than 600,000 individual buildings and structures located at more than 6,000 different locations or sites. When all sites are added together, the Department utilizes over 30 million acres of land.

    The Department of Defense has a budget of three hundred seventy-one billion dollars and more than two million employees; Wal-Mart has a budget of about two hundred twenty-seven billion dollars and employs about one-point-three million people; Exxon-Mobil has a budget of two hundred billion dollars and employs almost ninety-eight thousand; the GM company budget equals one hundred eighty-one billion dollars, it has a workforce of three-hundred sixty-five thousand people; and Ford has a budget of one-hundred sixty billion dollars, and employs three-hundred fifty-four thousand, four hundred people.

    The Department of Defense mission is accomplished seeking out our nation’s best and brightest.
