Army Reserve soldier 'enlists' former president to aid in ceremony
In this image released by the Army Reserve's Military Intelligence Readiness Command, former President George H.W. Bush helps to facilitate a re-enlistment ceremony in Houston, Texas, Friday, April 25, 2014. The re-enlistment was for Master Sgt. Branden Young, a Virginia-based reservist who successfully requested Bush as the official to witness the ceremony and sign the required documents. Young -- along with his family, friends and members of his unit -- traveled to Bush's post-presidential office in Houston for the event. Military units use formal re-enlistment ceremonies as a way to recognize ongoing service, as well as to encourage retention. (Photo/75th Training Command, Army Reserve Maj. Adam Collett)
