September 1944: perched on the wing of his stricken torpedo bomber, 3,000 feet above a Pacific Ocean teeming with hostile ships, Ensign George Bush prepares to leap into destiny. One yank of his rip cord later, he is prey to a Japanese armada, intent on his capture and interrogation. The story is true. A patriotic young man volunteers for hazardous assignment, knocks out enemy war ships, and collects a pile of medals. His inspiration is his fiance, Barbara, for whom he names his plane. Discover for yourself the gallantry, conflict, and drama that molded our former President in a fascinating and insightful recollection. 100+ photos.
