I found this link:

http://siadapp.dmdc.osd.mil/personnel/MILITARY/ms0.pdf

which indicates totaly US military as 1,471,008 (1/31/2010).
Of that, 43,391 is in the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard folks are the only armed forces counted in the census totals. The other services are not.

There are actually two links there on the same line. It didn’t post “pretty”. You’ll have to copy off one at a time.

Below is the first one:

The problems with reported federal employment numbers is that they have not substantially changed since the 1950’s despite the huge growth in government. For example, a major debate between “W” and Gore in 2004 was job creation. Gore claimed 600K jobs created between 2000 and 2004 while “W” claimed 2.6 Million created. The difference according to “W” was government jobs created. So while there is a reported increase of 2 million in 4 years, the official number never waivered.

We know that the Dept of Energy, created in 1978 now has 24000 direct employees and 100,000 contract employees, but the reported federal number hasn’t changed since the 1950’s.

Neither my Congressman nor my Senators will respond to my request for an accurate federal government headcount. It shouldn’t be that difficult, so obviously people in both parties don’t want the truth to be known.
