The days-long national farewell to Bush will begin Monday with a commemoration in Houston, where the Bushes lived for years and where he died on Friday surrounded by friends and family.

"The president led the charge... and insisted that we do it in such a way, that we were not unsympathetic to the political problems of Mr. Gorbachev and we could operate in a way that would make it easier for him to do what we wanted him to do, not by brute force, not by threats, not by taking advantage of dancing on the Berlin wall as it came down".

Bush's crowning achievement as president was assembling the global military coalition that liberated the tiny, oil-rich nation of Kuwait from invading neighbor Iraq in 1991 in a war that lasted just 100 hours. Whenever I was with him I saw his absolute joy for life and true pride in his family. He had enlisted in the U.S. Navy on his 18th birthday. He left office in 1963, the same year John F.
