RIP President Bush. Regardless of how you feel about his politics, he was a part of the greatest generation, and a war hero. That's more than you can say for most of our cowardly politicians today.

Here is a nice piece by Pres. Reagan's former administrative assistant, Peggy Grande.

41, thanks for your heroic service in WWII.

George Bush was a remarkable man (and the ultimate wingman)
Bush was one of the greatest. I'm sure most people have seen the photo's of Bush being rescued by a US submarine off the coast of Iowa Jima ( actually an adjacent island). A very good read is available, "Flyboys" that illustrates how close we came to not having Bush for our 41st president. Bush's co-pilot was killed by enemy gunfire and Bush had no choice but to bail out. If the sub had not picked up Bush, the tides would have caused him to land on the beaches, that were swarming with the Japanese. Bush's chance of surviving his capture by the Japanese was "zero". Besides ritual torture, Americans prisoners were routinely eaten. (cannabilism) Gen. Douglas McAuthor, and others, kept this information secret, and was not made public until fifty years later. (Freedom of Information Act).

One of my favorite stories about George Bush, as told by himself actually, was when he entered the Texas political arena. After WW2, Bush did quite well selling agricultural equipment in Texas.
He was well received, and liked. He had some encouragement to run for either U.S. Congress or the U.S. Senate. Paying a social visit to the Governor of Texas, Lyndon B. Johnson, Bush asked for Johnson's advice wether to run for the U.S. Congress or the Senate. Johnson's advice:
In the senate you have chicken salad, in the congress you have chicken $hit !

He was an intelligent good man that served his country for many years. He showed us how to suffer old age and many ailments with dignity.He left a legacy that few will ever achieve.He was soft spoken but his deeds speak louder than his words.

He was good. Better than his son and far better than John McCain.

His wife was/is good, too, I think.
