    FILE - In a March 24, 1994 file photo, U.S. soldiers board a C-5 transport plane bound for Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, at Mogadishu, as the U.S. military's presence in Somalia winds down. By the time U.S. military forces left Somalia in 1994 after entering the lawless nation more than a year earlier to stop a famine, 44 Army soldiers, Marines and airmen had been killed and dozens more wounded. But the U.S. has come back, using special forces advisers, drones and tens of millions of dollars in military aid to combat a growing and multifaceted security threat. (AP Photo/John Moore, File)

Griffin of Terre Haute, Ind., who died in Afghanistan according to the Department of Defense, during a dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Del. Sept. 11 defined one presidency. It still hangs over another. Every big ramification of that horrible day, two wars, tremendous debt, the unsolvable Guantanamo Bay prison, the hunt for Osama bin Laden, the dead still coming home at Dover ? has bridged the decade from George W. Bush to Barack Obama. The White House, like the rest of the country, has been forever changed. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
