In 1989, few could have imagined that four years later the Cold War would be won; the threat of nuclear war would be all but eliminated; the Soviet Union would be replaced by a democratic Russia; Germany would be unified; and age-old enemies would be discussing lasting peace in the Middle East. Yet, these and so many more dramatic events unfolded at home and abroad-each day, it seemed-and leading America through this period of unprecedented change was President George Bush. Mr. Bush was born in Milton, Massachusetts on June 12, 1924. On his 18th birthday, he graduated from Phillips Academy and enlisted in the Navy. During active duty in the Pacific, he flew torpedo bombers off the USS San Jacinto. He was shot down on September 2, 1944 afte4r completing a bombing raid on Chi Chi Jima and was eventually awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service. Mr. Bush returned from the battle in 1945, graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Yale University in 1948, and moved to Texas to begin making his way in the oil industry. His career in public service began in 1966 when he was elected to the first of two terms representing Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Bush was named ambassador to the United Nations in 1974; and in 1976 director of the CIA. Ronald Reagan selected George Bush to be his running mate in 1980, and they went on to serve two terms in office together. In 1988, he earned the GOP nomination and the support of the American people to become the 41st president of the United States.
