Today is the funeral of a great man and the 41st president of the United States. I was fortunate to get to dine with him at a dinner where he spoke.
I was working in Washinton D.C. on a contract for the army when he sent troops to Panama for Just Cause. I never mentioned this when I lived in Panama because many Panamanians protest that invasion and there was a large loss of life during the invasion. While Panama was better off without Noriega, it is a good time for U.S. citizens to stay off the street during its anniversary.
I also worked in Austin for a project for Governor (future President 43) George W, Bush. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo with him to remember that time.
George H.W. Bush will be buried in College Station, Texas at his Presidential Museum. I hope to visit there in 2019.
RIP President Bush.
