he 41st president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush, died at 94 after a life of service to his country. His death was announced late Friday.
Bush was born on June 12, 1924. At 18 he enlisted in the Navy and served as an aviator. He flew dozens of combat missions and survived being shot down. He and his wife Barbara left their affluent New England relatives and moved to Texas, where Bush entered the oil business. He was elected to Congress—his father, Prescott Bush, had been U.S. Senator from Connecticut—and in the course of his career served as a U.N. ambassador, head of the Republican National Committee, director of the CIA, vice president to Ronald Reagan and finally president. He served one term in the White House—long enough to lead the international coalition that pushed the forces of Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein back out of Kuwait, and to see the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Mrs. Bush wasn't elected as a leader. Didn't conduct war or administer policy. Save it for the Mr(s). You'll get your chance.
