Oh, How We Have Fallen!

In Citizen Soldiers, his book on the US Army in Europe in 1944 and 1945, Stephen Ambrose wrote:

The U.S. Army in its treatment of POWs compiled a record of decency and efficiency in an area in which all other countries, save Britian and Canada, must hang their heads in shame.

Once, we had much to be proud of.

Today, I am worried.  Ours really was, once, the greatest country on earth, morally and physically.  Now?
