You da man!
and we love you still!
AWESOME!!!!!! So glad for him! Thanks for posting these. I missed it on the news, today.
What’s an old Navy man doing jumping with the Army? Wasn’t his Navy parachute good enough for his first jump?
Unlike America I have a parachute!

The Navy doesn’t let you jump out of a perfectly good aircraft.
Good Maine Stock!
Can’t help that notice George W. and Laura holding hands. Some one should tell the Obamas that real affection can’t be faked. It shines from the former first couple.
Idjit Naval Aviators ain't got the brains God gave a goose...IMHO...
Yeah, and the SEALs too. And they’re nuts too. IMHO.
I understand he got his jump wings after his fourth jump with the Army jumpers....they counted his jump out of his burning Navy plane as one. Personally, I would probably count that as two or three.
Sure they do, and usually without a parachute.
Wow! It’s nice to see from this story about President Bush and the photo that you posted that there are still many brave men out there.
May GOD BLESS THIS MOST WONDERFUL MAN and HIS ENTIRE FAMILY!
President George H.W. Bush is a Truly GREAT U.S. Patriot and Hero, a Great Leader, and One of Our Greatest Presidents Ever!! What a Wonderful Birthday to Celebrate and Soar Thru GOD’S Heavens Like a Bird:-) A Special Thank you to #41 and Barbara for Giving Us Our Truly Great President George W. Bush and Laura, Our Wonderful Commander in Chief and Leader for the Past Eight Years!!!!!!!!
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS THE BUSH FAMILY, ALL OF US AMERICANS and Most Specially OUR TRULY GREAT and WONDERFUL AMERICA AS IT WAS UP ON UNTIL NOON ON JANUARY 20, 2009!!
He finally got Religion???
He was somewhat of a disappointment as President, as was his son. Yet, I voted 4 times for Bushes as POTUS. I am not particularly distressed because we would have otherwise had Presidents Dukakis, Bore and/or Jean Francois Kerry.
He is a remarkably admirable person, as was his son 43. I think he would be a more interesting ex-President to talk to than any other living POTUS. (Ronnie, I am still sad that we lost you).
I'm 83 and I could kick 0bama's ass from here to Cairo.
