YPG honors Bush with 21-gun salute
Overcast skies and light drizzle underscored the solemnity as YPG personnel and Price Elementary School students bid farewell to former President George H.W. Bush with a 21-gun salute on Thursday. In keeping with Army protocol, a 50-gun salute took place at retreat that evening. Former President Bush was the last president to visit the proving ground: he conducted a parachute jump here in March 1997, his first since serving as a Naval aviator in World War II.
