No matter how you measure it, by aircraft, ships, or active-duty military personnel, the US Department of Defense (DoD) is big. Except for Social Security, the Department of Defense -- comprising the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, Reserves, and more than a dozen defense agencies -- is the largest component of US government spending. The 2012 budget for the Department of Defense is more than $670 billion, 18% of which will be used to fund the ongoing military engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq. The DoD maintains a force of about 1.4 million active duty service members and operates thousands of facilities around the world.

With 50,000 employees, the NYPD has a broad array of specialized services, including the Emergency Service Unit, K9, harbor patrol, air support, bomb disposal, counter-terrorism, criminal intelligence, anti-gang, anti-organized crime, narcotics, public transportation and public housing. The New York City Transit Police and New York City Housing Authority Police Department were fully integrated into the NYPD in 1995. (Statement from: Wikipedia)
To be a marine, you gotta have faith. The United States Marine Corps' motto, Semper Fidelis, Latin for always faithful, reflects service members' dedication to each other, their corps, and their country. The Marine Corps has two missions: make Marines and win battles. The military branch operates artillery, aviation, expeditionary, and infantry units. It has four divisions and works out of about 35 bases and stations in the US and Japan. It is the smallest of the military branches with just more than 202,000 active duty personnel and some 40,000 reservists. The Marine Corps traces its roots to the American Revolution and 1775, when the Continental Marines was formed.
New York City is home to approximately 1.64 million older adults, and the Department for the Aging is committed to helping them age in their homes and communities. Our mission is to eliminate ageism and ensure the dignity and quality of life of diverse older adults. We also work to support caregivers through service, advocacy, and education. We accomplish these goals by partnering with hundreds of community-based organizations to provide services through older adult centers, naturally occurring retirement communities, case-management and home-care agencies, home-delivered meal programs, mental health and friendly visiting programs, and much more in each borough. NYC Aging also has an Older Adult Employment Services Unit, Caregiver Resource Center, Elderly Crime Victims Resource Center, Grandparent Resource Center, Foster Grandparent Program, Bill Payer Program, and Volunteer Resource Center. We are committed to providing safe and inclusive services for diverse, older New Yorkers. All New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, can access NYC Aging and City services. We know that older adults may have concerns about the confidentiality of their information, especially any information about their immigration status. The City has strong policies to protect the privacy of your information. You can find more information through the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. Additionally, if you are worried or have questions about immigration and public benefits for you or your loved ones, you can visit nyc.gov/publiccharge for more information. As we look to the future, when older adults are projected to reach 1.86 million - or 20.6 percent - of the City's population by 2040, we are proud to participate in Age-friendly NYC: New Commitments for a City for All Ages under Mayor Eric Adams’ leadership. Our City has already been named an age-friendly city by the World Health Organization. The Age-friendly NYC: New Commitments initiative and our work with community partners make it even better!
