Inquiry into U.S. Costs and Allied Contributions to Support the U.S. Military Presence Overseas: Congressional Report
Carl Levin (ed)
The U.S. spends more than $10 billion a year to support our permanent military presence overseas, not including military personnel costs or spending to support the war in Afghanistan. Major U.S. force posture initiatives are either underway or under consideration that will define our relationship with NATO and our allies and partners in the Asia Pacific for decades to come. As we renew our commitments to these critical relationships, we must also look for ways to support our strategic goals while avoiding excessive and unsustainable costs. This report reviews certain costs associated with U.S. military presence in Germany and the Asia Pacific, including how the burden of costs is shared between the U.S. and our allies, the impact of planned posture changes on those costs, and the spending and oversight of foreign government payments -- particularly in-kind payments used for military construction projects. (U.S. burden-sharing agreements with Korea and Japan both include in-kind payments. In addition, payments from the German government to compensate the U.S. for improvements made to facilities on U.S. bases in Germany are almost exclusively in-kind.) Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
