This came from a Marine's wife. It says it all..
I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government underwent a peaceful transition of power a few months ago.
At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Barack Obama took his Oath of office. However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.
It was then that I realized how far America 's Military had deteriorated.
Every last one of them missed.
