I am totally with all of you on this. And there will never be another generation like the one Tom Brokaw dubbed 'The Greatest Generation'.

A lot of political crap out there about him. But in my book he was a hero, and a great President! RIP

I took a C-5 with the first load into Daharan as a trip wire when Saddam went into Kuwait. Sheridan tanks and Airborne troopers. Bush got us in, did the job and we left.
In 1968 I was an Army chopper pilot in Viet Nam. Johnson got us into a quagmire with no end. We wondered if he even wanted to win.
No comparison.

Odd notes


I think his first carrier landings were on the Wolverine or the Sable in Lake Michigan.


Picked up by a sub after being shot down.


No bone spurs on this guy!

Thank you for your service. Also thankful for the service of President Bush 41.

Ditto on what each of you said. I read a story about how H W liked to fish. Had a fast boat built after elected [with his own $$$]. His priority was to have comfortable dry seats for security personel who accompanied him. Says a whole bunch about the man. m

From what I have read about his running his boat some of the seats may not have been as dry and as comfortable from the inside after a good fast run... lol.
