It looked like he was going to pass around Christmas about 5-6 years ago, but he kept going, but today was his day. I believe he's the last president who more or less just kept his head down, did a good job, kept the country running, managed world affairs, and then left the stage. Something we've needed for a long time, but aren't likely to get again anytime soon.
Anyway, here's a video of him being fished out of the Pacific by a submarine after being shot down by anti-aircraft fire. Despite the engines being on fire, Bush managed to complete his bombing run and get out to sea before bailing out. Also a reminder that Bush was the last of a long line of seven WWII presidents (between Eisenhower and Bush, 1953-1993, all but Carter, who graduated from the naval academy a year too late, served in WWII in some capacity).
