During World War II Bush?s bomber group was active in the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Having been promoted to Lt. J.G. the youthful Bush and his crew flew more missions, one of which encountered such intense anti-aircraft fire that his plane caught fire. In spite of the danger Bush completed a successful bombing of their target. However, in the process of returning from the attack, Lt. J.G. Bush had to bail out of his plane. He was the only survivor of his plane?s crew. George was finally picked up by a rescue submarine where he assisted in the recovery of other downed pilots over the next month. Since his squadron suffered the loss of half of its pilots, the squadron was sent back to the U.S. Mainland.
