Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
By my count wikipedia lists 27 foreign Airforce bases in 15 countries; 89 Army bases in 8 countries;  27 Marine Corp bases in 7 countries; and 15 Naval installations in 9 countries.

A total, by my count, of 158 bases - a figure Wikipedia acknowledges to be incomplete.  Obviously this does not nominally local bases where some US troops may be based from time to time, temporary bases, black sites, and bases manned by close allies or Corporate contractors.

Do you know what the 700 figure is based on?
