The US community in the Naples area includes service people and their families from each branch of the US Armed Forces. The total community population fluctuates around 10,000. The bulk of the US community in the Naples area is Navy, with Air Force personnel second in number, followed by the Army, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. US civilians, Department of Defense or State employees and family members round out the community. Most of the Army and Air Force personnel are assigned to elements of AFSOUTH. The US Army Element of AFSOUTH is located on the AFSOUTH Post. The Element provides personnel support to all US Army personnel assigned to AFSOUTH, including the NATO Communications School in Latina, Italy; LandSouth Headquarters in Verona, Italy; and the Advanced Command Post at Thessalonikia, Greece.
