  • Former US President George Bush dies at age 94, family spokesman says

Former US President George H.W. Bush has died, the family's spokesperson said Saturday.

Eight years later, though, he was able to watch his son, George W. Bush, become the 43rd president of the United States. The aircraft carrier on which he served, the San Jacinto, was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation.

George W Bush would go on to be elected president in 2000 after Mr Clinton and served two terms. The family also thanked those who cared for and prayed for their beloved dad in recent days.

One of the youngest pilots in the Navy, he flew 58 missions off the carrier USS San Jacinto. He made two unsuccessful runs for Senate, but would later serve in various political capacities - including as the U.S. ambassador the United Nations, Republican National Committee chair, and Central Intelligence Agency director.

During his four years in the White House, Bush ordered a military operation in Panama to overthrow its drug-trafficking leader, Manuel Noriega.
