The levels ranged from 1.6 million U.S. troops in the American sector in Germany at the end of World War II to 14,000 U.S. and international troops currently in Afghanistan.

Jack maintained that King County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Learned, now retired, was in error when she based the county's penalty on a mostly per-day basis, rather than per- document, as the statute infers.
Using a combination of logic—multiplying days by the number of some documents—Learned decided the county was 5,090 days late and assessed the minimum $5 daily penalty.
But he got the brush-off from county officials and resorted to formally requesting documents under the records law, which compels public agencies to release documents except for those exempted for reasons such as national security and personal privacy.
