The airstrikes launched against northern Iraq on Friday originated from the USS George H.W. Bush, an aircraft carrier, and today the former president himself sent his prayers to the crew.

The Washington Post reports:

As militants with the Islamic State launched artillery rounds at Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, the U.S. military on Friday launched airstrikes using fighter jets on the USS George H. W. Bush, Pentagon officials said.

It was just the latest involvement in combat for the Bush, which was commissioned in 2009. It was used extensively in 2011 to support combat operations in Afghanistan, and left Norfolk, Va., in February on its second deployment. It arrived in the Middle East in March, and entered the Persian Gulf in June, as the Islamic State took control of vast regions of northern and western Iraq.

Amen.

As Twitchy reported, the Blue Angels tweeted out that photo last week. On Thursday, President George H.W. Bush proudly tweeted it out as well.

Adorable.

Others offered up some warm support in the form of mutual respect, including members of our brave military.

Indeed. Honor, class and dignity, always.

He’s also a uniter. The real kind.

Dana Perino models the limited edition George H.W. Bush sock

That’s not quite true. If you do donate to the Republicans, though, the GOP will send you a pair of limited edition George H.W. Bush socks.

Would you like them better if Dana Perino of “The Five” modeled them?

This guy would take a pair.
