I sat last month, as did millions of American's, and watched as our government underwent a peaceful transition of power - the "Change of Command ".
I was proud as Mr. Bush took his oath of office. But, I was sad, as I watched Mr. Clinton board Air Force One for the final time.
It may surprise you to know why the latter made me sad, let me explain.
I saw 21 Seasoned U.S. Marines in full dress blues with rifles, deliver a 21 gun salute to the outgoing president.
It was then that I realized the truth about the ready status of America's military. Even the elite of the USMC need more preparation and time on the range with their weapons.
Every last one of them missed!!
