Germany is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Military service is compulsory for a period of nine months. In January 2004 it was announced that the size of the Bundeswehr (armed forces) was to be reduced, and that by around 2010 it would be reorganized into a rapid reaction force of 35,000 troops, a second force, of 70,000 troops, for low- and medium-intensity conflict and a third force, of 137,500 civilians, providing medical and logistical support. More than 100 army bases were also to be closed as part of the streamlining process and the number of conscripts was to be decreased to 55,000. Germanys special forces, the Kommando Spezial Kräfte (KSK), were to be increased from 450 to 1,000. In March 2006 Germanys armed forces totalled some 284,500, including 94,500 conscripts. The strength of the army stood at 191,350, including 73,450 conscripts. The navy numbered 25,650 (including 4,950 conscripts) and there were 67,500 in the air force (16,100 conscripts).
As assessed at March 2006, the USA had 69,790 troops stationed in Germany (army 53,300, air force 15,900, navy 330 and marine corps 260). The United Kingdom had approximately 22,000 troops stationed in Germany, while France and the Netherlands maintained, respectively, forces of 2,800 and 2,300 personnel. Italy had 91 troops stationed in Germany. Belgium withdrew its troops from Germany during 200204. In 2004 the USA announced that it was to withdraw some 30,000 troops from Germany as part of a wider redeployment of its troops abroad. The US military was, however, to retain its European command in Germany. Key bases were to be expanded and three new, smaller brigades (of 3,0005,000 men each) were to be stationed in Germany. US air force bases in Germany were to be unaffected by the withdrawals.
