George Bush has the distinction of being the youngest Naval Aviator of all time. He served his country with honor long before he served as her President, also with honor. He is my cousin.

On the flight that was shot down he gave his two crewmen a chance to get out first. When he left the plane, his parachute opened too early and he hit his head on the bomber. When he landed he was bleeding, vomiting, and crying. He had just lived from a burning plane crash but his crew mates had not been so lucky despite extreme measures he took to try and save them. Regarding the two men, he has been quoted as saying "God bless those boys."
