BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2015) - RallyPoint and Rasmussen Reports teamed up to conduct a survey of 1,473 military adults between October 25, 2015 and November 2, 2015. With ISIS escalating terror in the Middle East, service members and veterans were asked about U.S. involvement overseas.

Service members and veterans of the Air Force were most likely to say that the U.S. is too involved in the Middle East compared to other branches. Respondents who said the U.S. is "too involved":

  • Air Force - 44%
  • Army - 36%

  • Marine Corps - 46%
  • Navy - 42%
  • Army - 38%
