Last week we learned that there are 3.6 million members in our US Military but have you ever wondered what branches they serve in? Get to know your customers...
Active Duty: Member Highlights
The percentage change in the number of DoD Active Duty members in each Service branch compared to 1990 has varied significantly. Compared to 1990, the Coast Guard and Marine Corps have increased 16.9 percent and 3.4 percent, respectively. Conversely, the number of Active Duty members is lower in 2009 compared to 1990 for the Army (24.6%), Navy (43.5%), and Air Force (38.1%).
Note that our Military Population is smaller since 9/11/01 and yet with such greater job demands. What can you do today to thank a Military Member for their diligence?
