    Heard it on the radio this afternoon, it was news to me that Arbutus Senior had passed on, guess meeting with Carter, Clinton, and Obama was too much for him.

    Must be nothing like it in the world to have a giant 'war machine' named for a war monger!

    USS George HW Bush Aircraft Carrier Commissioned - 12 hours ago
    The carrier that bears Mr. Bush's name is the last of its kind. The USS George HW Bush is the tenth and final vessel in the Nimitz class of nuclear-...................that's exactly what it's called

    Partisanship aside, that "old sumabitch", Bush 1, was a war hero in WWII , who flew planes off of carriers and almost died in a crash.

    There really isn't anything funny about it.

    The Navy's newest Super Carrier is the George H.W. Bush, named for the first President Bush.

    George H.W. Bush was a decorated U.S. Naval Aviator in WW2. It would seem appropriate that a carrier is named after him, considering that the 11 US Nuclear Super Carriers from 1967 onwards are named after Presidents and high ranking Naval Officials.

    He volunteered for the Navy at 17 became the youngest ever naval aviator in history up until that time, just shy of his 19th birthday

    He flew on the carrier USS San Jacinto, and his plane was shot down and he was injured and the three other members of his crew were injured.

    Nevertheless he was rescued and went on to fly 58 combat missions off the carrier.

    He then was an instructor for new Torpedo plane pilots because of his knowledge, and then returned to active service in 1945 with another torpedo squadron and he received three air medals for " Meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight", a presidential unit citation, and the Distinguished Flying Cross for "Heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight"

    I would say that, and his long service to his country, being a congressman, being director of the CIA, being Vice President for 8 years, and President for 4 years, and having a strong, lifelong commitment to the U.S. Military means he has clearly earned it.

    Its a fitting tribute to Sr.

    I have to admit that George Sr had a hell of a portfolio. Going back to his grandfather who help the NAZI during WWII and then when the war was over recruited the itelligence agency of the NAZI to form the CIA, which later appoint George Bush Sr as director.
    The old adage of "it's not what you know, but who you know" but in this case George Sr "had who you know" and (CIA) "what you know" in the bag!

    A warmonger raise from birth did good in the warmonger world! I think starinvestor
    should be real proud of that!

    Not to discount you - but was this true??

    I don't know of any recent leaders that were actually In the line of fire.
    All of them from what I have heard - were conveniently misplaced here and there when the shit hit the fan.

    Does this event really surprise anyone? 43 signed off on the Defense Budget authorizing payment for the craft named after 41. Then goes and stands on it when completed. Sounds more like family showing up for graduation. This is news?
