According to Q4, FEC filings:

A search of the FEC database by employer reveals that Dr. Paul has received 1160 donations from military donors, nearly triple that of John McCain, and more than McCain, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee combined.

Dr. Paul’s total military donations of $249 thousand are almost as much as the $260 thousand of combined donations received by the other five remaining candidates.

Wow, 1160 donations? Out of an active and reserve force totalling roughly three million?

Given typical salaries, and figuring out how 1160 goes into 249,000, I'm betting most of those aren't from the rank and file.

I think the FEC only requires reporting donations above $200. So if the median rank and file member donated less, their contribution would not be reported here.
