Deterioration of American Military I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as our government underwent a peaceful transition of presidential power. I was proud as Mr. Bush took his oath of Office. I was sad as I watched Mr. Clinton board Air Force One for the final time. It may surprise you that this made me sad, but watching this part of the day's festivities, I saw 21 U.S. Marines, in full dress, with rifles, fire a 21 gun salute to the outgoing president. It was then that I realized how far America's military had deteriorated. Every last one of them missed.
