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, Master Sgt. Branden Young and Brig. Gen. Gabriel Troiano participate in a re-enlistment ceremony in Houston, Texas, Friday, April 25, 2014. The re-enlistment was for 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 wife Amanda, family, friends and members of his unit -- traveled to Bush's post-presidential office in Houston for the event. Troiano administered the oath as part of the ceremony. Military units use formal re-enlistment ceremonies as a way to recognize ongoing service, as well as to encourage retention.
