WW 2 Veterans reflect on 41

While the Nation mourns the loss of former President Bush, World War 2 Veterans reflect on his service.

Posted: Dec 4, 2018 6:17 PM

World War 2 Veteran Carlton Warner had a tear in his eye as he thought about the loss of not only a President, but a comrade.

"I think we have a few minutes of solemn prayer. I’m sure my Legion, VFW, or the Legion, either one will bow their heads."

Angelo Saggese thought of Bush as a family member, and hopes people will remember the good things he did.

"It’s tough for any President. You know you do so much good, you do one thing bad, everyone remembers the bad thing not the 99 good things that you did."

Edward Freeman thinks about what Bush had to go through during war, and then as President.

"Well I think he was an exceptionally good President, and he served his country well. Well respected. Had a good attitude and kept his cool and was a fine person."

Alfred Circelli plans on watching the funeral coverage on Television and tells us just what he thinks about the former President.

"Well don’t you go to watch a person that you think is a friend. Well, I thought he was a friend. He never done nothing to me, you know if he came aboard ship or something he was friendly, so why shouldn’t I see him on TV?"
