The military of the United States is deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with more than 369,000 of its 1,379,551 active-duty troops serving outside the United States and its territories. Many of these troops are still located at installations activated during the Cold War, by which the US government sought to counter the Soviet Unionmarker in the aftermath of World War II. Since 2001, the US has redeployed some of its forces as part of the "War on Terror."
