(Released) President Bill Clinton reaches for the hand of a sailor as he shakes hands with U.S. service members and DoD employees at the Pentagon after signing the National Defense Authorization Act FY 2000 on Oct. 5, 1999. The Act provides for the first sustained increase in defense spending in 15 years and reflects the imperative of providing a sound quality of life for our uniformed people. Service men and women will see a 4.8 percent pay increase starting Jan. 1, 2000.   DoD photo by Staff Sgt. Scott M. Ash, U.S. Air Force. (Released)
