If the post offices "loses" money, how much money did our military "lose" last year? $640 billion it looks like...?

The budget (expenses over income) last year was $7 billion.  The years before that was only $3-4 billion.   It provides a very important and necessary service to America, and employs half a million people.  Our military cost us $640 billion last year.  Which do you think is more important?

Update:

DOD = department of defense, i.e., the entire military. https://comptroller.defense.gov/Portals/45/Documen...

Update 2:

Gradeschool math not your thing bro?  $640 billion is more than $7 billion fyi.

    The military is a scam, former general EISENHOWER tried to warn us about it but we didn't listen.

    The USPS is an independent agency.  As such, it is supposed to pay its own way.  That's why it reports financial results like a business.  When it fails to meet operating costs it has to ask the federal government for funds.  The DOD is not an agency which is why it does not report financial results like a business.  The DOD must stay within its Congressionally-authorized budget.  The DOD is far more important than anyone getting their junk mail.
