Remembering President George H.W. Bush
George H.W. Bush was a courageous war hero, Texas Congressman, an Ambassador, Director of the CIA, Vice President, and President of the United States. But I believe he would say his favorite title was husband to his beloved Bar, and greatest accomplishment was in raising children who serve their nation with equal dedication and patriotism.
Our country and our state have lost a man of honor who leaves a legacy of love and service for his nation and his family. Cathy and I extend our deepest condolences to the Bush family and join the nation in mourning the death of one of our greatest leaders.
After losing a true American hero with the death of our 41st President, it seemed entirely appropriate to spend the day with future leaders of our U.S. military. On Saturday, we hosted our annual ‘Academy Day’, during which young people in our district interview with our Academy Board in hopes of securing a nomination to one of our military institutions. It’s always a blessing to meet these exceptional young people who have a heart for service and who stand out from crowd because of their hard work.
