YPG honors Bush with 21-gun salute

Yuma Sun - - NEWS -

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.
