Sully paid tribute to his previous owner, George H.W. Bush, and has an important message for Memorial Day.

The World War II memorial opened to the public on April 29, 2004. The memorial is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

George H.W. Bush enlisted in the armed forces on his 18th birthday. He became the youngest pilot in the Navy, at his time, when we received his wings. Bush flew combat missions during WWII.

Sully became an American sweetheart after a photo of him lying by President Bush’s casket moved America.
