Good day!

I would like to inquire about the tally of the current strength of our nation. Including:

1.) Strength in numbers of all divisions of the Army (Navy, Marines, Reserved, etc.)

2.) Where these forces are based and how many are in each base

3.) Number of operational military vehicles (Tanks, Fighter planes)

This is for the sole purpose of knowing how our country's forces match up with others.
