Luján Statement on Passing of President George H. W. Bush

Congressman Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) released the following statement today on the passing of President George H. W. Bush:

 “I send my deepest prayers and sympathies to the Bush family during this difficult time.

 “Our country owes a debt of gratitude to President Bush. He began a lifetime of service to our nation at just eighteen years old when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, fighting with the Allied forces in World War II, and continued that service as Ambassador to the United Nations, Director of the CIA, Vice President, and eventually President of the United States.

 “President Bush’s legacy of service will continue to be an enduring example for future generations of leaders.”
