US Military enlistment, active duty, 2010:

AUGUST 31, 2010

Total - 1,435,731
Army - 568,169
Navy - 329,622
Marine Corps - 201,623
Air Force - 336,317

The article above estimates total US military spending at $948 billion per year. $948 billion per year divided by 1,435,00 = $660,000 per enlistee per year.

Is it possible that we could spend that money in a better way? How about we gave every enlistee a guaranteed $200,000 per year and take the other $460,000 per enlistee and invest it in the USA?
