If these numbers are correct then SOCOM is bigger than a reinforced Marine Expeditionary Brigade.

If these numbers are correct then you're looking at almost 46,000 servicemembers. That's more than a Marine Expeditionary Brigade or for my Army bubba's that's a couple of Divisions (Reinf).
The composition is curious too. AFSOC and Green Berets seem to be extremely heavy with everyone else basically hitting personnel numbers I expected.
Does anyone have an explanation for why those two organizations require so many people?
