USS Bush

By  | 

We've had two George Bushes as presidents, now the Navy's getting a George Bush of their own.

A ship named after a former president will be hitting the high seas. Bush 41 was presented with a portrait of USS George H-W Bush at an unveiling ceremony Monday. The aircraft carrier is expected to set sail in about four years.

The painting is a gift from the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, California. The artist, Stan Stokes, known for his paintings of military subjects, was also at the ceremony.

The portrait will be on display at the Bush Library.
