|George W. Bush
of the United States
George Walker Bush was born on July 6, 1946, in New Haven, Connecticut to former President George H. and First Lady Barbara Pierce Bush. He received a bachelor's degree in history from Yale University in 1968, and then served as an F-102 fighter pilot in the Texas Air National Guard. He then received a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School in 1975.
George W. Bush married Laura Welch Bush, a Texas native, teacher and librarian, on November 5, 1977. They have twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna.
On November 8, 1994, George W. Bush was elected Governor of Texas. He became the first Governor in Texas history to be elected to consecutive four-year terms when he was re-elected on November 3, 1998. George Bush was the Governor of Texas from 1994 to 2001.
George W. Bush was elected as President of the United States in 2001 and served two terms until 2009. He was the 43rd President of the United States of America and holds a special place in history. This is only the second time a son has followed his father into the White House. The first time this happened was when John Quincy Adams became the 6th President, his father had been the 2nd President.
Airborne terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the thwarted flight against the White House or Capitol on September 11, 2001, in which nearly 3,000 Americans were killed, transformed George W. Bush into a wartime president. The attacks put on hold many of Bush’s hopes and plans, and Bush’s father, George Bush, the 41st president, declared that his son “faced the greatest challenge of any president since Abraham Lincoln.”
Bush left office in 2009 and since then, he has returned to Texas and purchased a home in a suburban area of Dallas. He is currently a public speaker, has written a memoir titled "Decision Points", has taken up painting as a hobby, and his presidential library was opened in 2013.
