Ratcliffe Report: Remembering 41

(Dec. 5, 2018) Today marks the national day of mourning for former President George H. W. Bush, who passed away last week at the age of 94. But as we mourn his loss, we should also celebrate his distinguished service to our country.

President Bush’s public service began many years before he became the 41st President of the United States. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor inspired him to enlist in the Navy on his 18th birthday and become the nation’s youngest naval aviator.

He went on to serve as a Texas member of the U.S. House of Representatives, the ambassador to the United Nations, an envoy to China, director of the CIA, and as Vice President for eight years before winning the presidency.

President Bush was a man of great integrity whose dedicated life of service to his country and devotion to his family should inspire us all. Our nation will always be grateful for his legacy.
