Apparently it isn't Babdah.I think the Carter administration is the only administration since Hoover where we were not involved in some kind of military action.
Feel free to find a period of time when we have *not* been engaged in a military action.
Bummer, I've always liked Fmr President Carter. I greatly admire his dedication and efforts that he's done after he left office as well. I do believe he was one of the few to cancel his Secret Service, and wish that we'd stuck with his foreign policy choices re: oil independence.

From the great Wiki.

1979 - Nicaragua — Anastasio Somoza II, the CIA-backed dictator, falls. The Marxist Sandinistas take over government, and they are initially popular because of their commitment to land and anti-poverty reform. Somoza had a murderous and hated personal army called the National Guard. The Contras fight a CIA-backed guerrilla war against the Sandinista government throughout the 1980s.
1980 – Iran. Operation Eagle Claw. On April 26, 1980, President Carter reported the use of six U.S. transport planes and eight helicopters in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the American hostages in Iran.
1980 - El Salvador — The Archbishop of San Salvador, Óscar Romero, pleads with President Carter "Christian to Christian" to stop aiding the military government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses. Shortly afterwards, right-wing leader Roberto D’Aubuisson has Romero shot through the heart while saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil war, with the peasants in the hills fighting against the military government. Death squads roam the countryside, committing atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they massacre between 700 and 1000 men, women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans will be killed.

I've commented on how the NDAA has been ongoing in other threads, as well as on various political sites, generally in response to people trying to pretend President Obama's actions were unprecedented. The NDAA issue of Carter's time was FISA, which essentially circumvented the 4th amendment to the Constitution.
