From A Marine Wife...



I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government under went 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 just how far America 's military had deteriorated.

Every damn one of them missed the bastard.

When I was a kid, my dad took me to an Air Force ceremony for JFK's death. I watched the Airmen fire volly after volly with thier rifles.
I saw that they didn't hit shit, so I decided to join the Army.
Later, I found out they were shooting blanks.
Damn..If I'd known that, I'd joined the Air Force.

Airman Mom,
There's been a few times when I worshiped the Zoomies.
None of the other services could function without the Air Force.
