Tnr Slideshow: Base Instincts

When Barack Obama unveiled his long-term plans for American military forces in Iraq and Afghanistan earlier today, he chose to do so in front of audience of Marines and their families at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. The military-base visit is a staple of the modern American presidency. In today's TNR slideshow, we look back at revealing moments from other presidents' military drop-ins, both literal and figurative.
