Here's the current state of affairs for the US military.
The United States Army's Old Guard is best known for its ceremonial duties. Its soldiers stand vigil at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery and serve in color guards for visiting dignitaries.Maureen Dowd points out that the last time this regiment had to be used for combat duty was during the Vietnam conflict.
It seems as if the day is imminent when no American forces will be in the US. Another example of the Bushies' lack of planning.
