One of the greatest honors that could be bestowed to any President, alive or dead, is to have a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier named after you. U.S. Navy aircraft carriers are often times the sword that both protects American interests abroad, as well as enforces and defends against threats around the world. Around the world. and across the seas, the name of these aircraft carriers become synonymous with power and respect.
So to honor Bush 41, otherwise known as Bush Senior, take a walk aboard the aircraft carrier bearing his name, the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) and take a look of its interior. Nearly 6,000 Sailors attached to the George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group (GHWBCSG) departed from Norfolk and Mayport, Florida for a regularly-scheduled deployment. The deployment is part of a regular rotation of forces sent to support maritime security and operations in the Navy’s 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operation.
