Ensuring the defense of our country requires more than warfighters.
Currently, more than 950,000 non-uniformed civilians serve in 650 occupations in 94 countries around the globe. DOD employees work in offices, laboratories, shipyards, airfields, medical facilities and schools. They serve under different flags — Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force or defense agencies. Their common mission is “to deter war and protect the security of our nation.”
