As tributes pour out for the 41st President George H.W. Bush, we dug into the state achieves were Bush’s political past included stop right here in Alabama. 

State Auditor, Jim Zeigler say George H.W. Bush showed a love for America and a patriotism at a young age.

Secretary Of State, John Merrill, Says he doesn’t think there has ever been a man who’s been more qualified to serve as our nations chief executive than late President Bush.

Zeigler says Bush was the youngest person ever to become a navy pilot.

He says late Bush signed up in the navy the day after his 18th birthday, and this was in the mist of world war two, he did this knowing he would see action.
