FYI - the Heritage Foundation has issued a new report that it expects to produce annual going forward.  
More information about the 2015 Index of U.S. Military Strength can be found at

" The Index is an annual assessment of the state of America's "hard power," the geographic and functional environments relevant to the United States' vital national interests, and threats that rise to a level that put those interests at risk."

The announcement about the report is available at
