Beyond Afghanistan: Countries Inhabited by the United States Armed Forces

Sometimes when we speak with people about the Iowa Troop Pantry they think that our job is over now that the large Iowa National Guard deployment is over. What we always remind them of is that all of our Iowa National Guard personnel are not home, and we send care packages to anybody who comes from Iowa. Those men and women do not have to be stationed out of Iowa (as we have no major military base in the state), they must have originated from Iowa at some point.

In an effort to clarify that our servicemen and women are not only in Afghanistan, we have compiled a list from the Department of Defense of what countries our armed services are currently in. This includes all branches of the military.
