The story behind President George H.W. Bush’s service revolver (PHOTOS)


Recommended Posts

This was posted on another site and though it well worth sharing.

"Enlisting on his 18th birthday in 1942, the U.S. Navy notes that Bush volunteered for the service just six months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and was soon accepted into a pilot training program. Before he saw his 19th, Bush was commissioned as one of the youngest naval aviators and soon shipped out for the war in the Pacific on the light aircraft carrier USS San Jacinto."

How about in the comments section the guy who says 41 was involved in the Kennedy assassination? 

Another loon who believes in the fantasy land of Camelot. 

I read those but hoped people would just focus on the story and the pictures.

Always going to have fruitcakes making comments.
