According to the Center for Responsive Politics, among those deployed overseas at the time they contributed money to a presidential campaign, Obama was the overwhelming favorite in every service branch except the Marines.

Despite McCain’s status as a decorated veteran and a historically Republican bent among the military, members of the armed services overall — whether stationed overseas or at home — are also favoring Obama with their campaign contributions in 2008, by a $55,000 margin.
