Bush 1 flew 58 combat missions in the Pacific during WWII, he was shot down 
after completing a successful bombing mission on a Japanese radio 
installation.  As his bombs hit their target I'm sure that 
he killed some of the enemy on that mission.  GHW Bush was the youngest Navy 
aviator to serve during WWII and received the Distinguished Flying cross for 
the mission that he had successfully 
completed when he was shot down.
