George H. W. Bush was born on June 12th, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts. When he was young, Bush fought in World War II in the Navy and flew 58 combat missions. He married Barbara in 1945 and had six children.

From 1967 to 1971, Bush served as a Representative from Texas. He became an Ambassador to the United Nations for the U.S. from 1971 to 1973, the Director of the CIA from 1976 to 1977, Vice President from 1981 to 1989, and the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. 

Bush did not believe in the U.S. interfering with the structure of the new nations forming during his time as president. His efforts went into protecting the Panama canal and dealing with President Saddam Hussein of Iraq invading Kuwait. Both times, Bush sent in American troops to intervene. Bush campaigned for a second term, but lost to Bill Clinton. He died at the age of 94 on November 30th, 2018.
