Even if DOD provided a number, you know it would be a lie.
While on active duty the biggest liars I ever encountered were those in public affairs offices, which were really just propaganda outlets deceiving the gullible American public.
Always remember the words of Arthur Sylvester, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs (the head PR guy for the Pentagon) in 1966:
“Look, if you think any American official is going to tell you the truth, then you’re stupid. Did you hear that? Stupid.”
