Total War Funding by Operation
Assuming an annual level of the current Continuing Resolution (H.J.Res. 44/P.L. 112-4) and
based on DOD, State Department/USAID, and Department of Veterans Administration budget
submissions, the cumulative total appropriated from the 9/11 for those war operations, diplomatic
operations, and medical care for Iraq and Afghan war veterans is $1.283 trillion including:
• $806 billion for Iraq;
• $444 billion for Afghanistan;
• $29 billion for enhanced security; and
• $6 billion unallocated
Of this total, 63% is for Iraq, 35% for Afghanistan, 2% for enhanced security and 1/2% is
unallocated. Almost all of the funding for Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) is for Afghanistan.
This total includes funding provided in all appropriations act including the FY2010 Supplemental
(H.R. 4899/P.L. 111-212) enacted July 29, 2010, and the 6th Continuing Resolution for FY2011
For example, between FY2005 and FY2009, average annual operational costs per troop were $525,000 for Afghanistan and $462,000 for Iraq.
DOD’s requests for FY2010 and FY2011 generally include sharply higher annual per troop costs for Afghanistan, with operational costs projected to jump from $507,000 in FY2009 to $667,000 in FY2010 and $694,000 in Afghanistan.
