How many Marines are there in Afghanistan?

More than 7000

It is widely known the fact that the United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from the sea.  Keep in mind that the US Marine Crops had a rich history.  It was created in 1775.  It is extremely important to know the fact that in June 2009, 7,000 Marines with the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade deployed to Afghanistan in an effort to improve security.  Keep in mind the fact that the U.S. Marine Corps has just under 203,000 active duty members and just under 40,000 reserve Marines.
