Washington (CNN)The US Department of Defense is diverting an estimated $3.6 billion in military construction funds to help build President Donald Trump’s wall on the US-Mexico border.

The Pentagon on Wednesday released the full list of 127 military construction projects that will lose funds in order to help construct 175 miles of southern border wall.The projects range from building training and ammunition storage facilities to fixing access roads to construction on a middle school in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, along with a subway station entrance facility at the Pentagon.Not everyone is outraged by Trump's move to divert military funds to pay for border wallNot everyone is outraged by Trump's move to divert military funds to pay for border wallNot everyone is outraged by Trump's move to divert military funds to pay for border wallJust under $1.8 billion meant for US and US territory projects will be reallocated to the border wall. The US is also pulling funds from several overseas projects, more than $1.8 billion, including from construction at air bases in ally nations like the United Kingdom and Germany.Asked about potential concerns from European allies, Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters in London on Thursday that his message is one of increasing “burden sharing” among allies when it comes to military spending, and that other countries should “maybe pick up that tab.”Read MoreBelow is the full list of military construction projects.Domestic projects: $1,075,961,000AlabamaAnniston Army Depot Weapon
