On March 31st 2003.
953,397 service members were based in the continental United States
IE: those in alaska and Hawaii, or in US territories are not included.
On March 31st 2003 there were 1,414,517 total active duty service members.
2. So 67.4% of active duty service members were in the continental United States

Less than 20%. At that time we had a 2.1 million person military and about 320,000 in Iraq
