PhM/3c George BUSH, USNR
Pharmacist's Mate Third Class

U.S. Navy Service # 8193906
Third Marine Division, Iwo Jima

George Bush was born on November 23, 1922.  He lived with his family at Rural Delivery #2, Elverson, Pennsylvania (near Morgantown).

George entered the Navy on January 6, 1944, and received medical training to become a Pharmacist Mate. He received training at Hospital Corpsmen School, at the Naval Hospital in Bainbridge, Maryland, March - April 1944, Medfield Service School at Camp Lejeune, New River, North Carolina in July.

George was sent overseas after completion of his medical training serving as a Pharmacist Mate 3rd Class.

George was assigned to the Marine Corps as a medic (the Navy supplied Pharmacist Mates to the Marine Corps. The Marines called them Medics although they had more extensive training than the Army Medics.) 

Pharmacist Mate 3rd Class George Bush was Killed In Action on Iwo Jima on March 20, 1945.  Even though he survived the most intense battles which began with the landings on February 19th, the Island was considered relatively secure and victory declared on March 16th, four days before George was Killed In Action. 

George Bush was buried at the Honolulu Memorial Cemetery, Hawaii, with full military honors.
