One-sixth of the entire fleet and one-half of the Pacific Feet are based within the county. Experts estimate Department of Defense annual expenditures in San Diego, including US. space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) defense contracts, payroll and base operations at more than $9.5 billion. In fact, San Diego is second only to Los Angeles for defense dollars awarded.

Secondary financial resources include the more than 200,000 family members who have relocated to the county as well as the 85,000 military retirees who work at the many San Diego high-tech companies in need of their special skills.
