Thanks for this post! I want to point out that I just saw a documentary (made last year) about how the US is changing the way they are handling
overseas bases and troop deployment. For example there is a base in Australia that people claim is a "US" base but in fact it is vastly staffed by
Australians while there is a small deployment of DOD & ABC agencies & contractors employees stationed within this base. Now in this case, and in many
others, there is what amounts to a private US base within this base - fenced in w/ it's own security where all US personnel work. These smaller bases
can be impossible to spot unless you knew they were American's already and often times many/most of the personnel live off base with the rest of the
These smaller bases are much smaller than the older US only bases that were being used in years past, so in cases there could be 50-500 troops on a
base, often with "limited" hardware (who knows what they really have though).
So when you see these maps of bases, it might be an Afghan base or Iraqi base with only a handful of US support personnel, maybe some special forces,
contractors, CIA, etc, but very often they are not a base of 500-3000 troops with a full deployment of vehicles, armor, air craft, etc.
