Bob Sprague shows off a photo of President George H. W. Bush he received in the late 1980s from the chief of naval information. Sprague, who served in the U.S. Navy for 23 years, met Bush once while serving, recalling, “He was beyond words.” Sprague later learned that he had flown in the same squadron as the president years after him.
