Best Answer

In 2010, less than 1% of the American population was serving on active-duty in the military, with only 0.0003% of them U.S. Marines. It is likely impossible to determine how many of America's current (as of June 2015) population of 310 million have served in the U.S. military as the 1974 fire in the St Louis records center destroyed much of the WW2-Korea-Vietnam records.
