When the time came for Bush’s funeral in December of 2018, it’s no wonder that his family chose to dress him in a pair of memorable socks for the occasion. The chosen design: a pattern of airplanes shooting through the sky (via Insider).

The socks were intended as a nod to Bush’s veteran status. Bush served in the Navy during WWII, having enlisted at only 18 years old. By 19, he was serving in active combat zones as a carrier-based bomber pilot, according to People, and came to be the youngest pilot in the Navy. At the end of his service, he had flown almost 60 combat missions and had crashed multiple times. Bush won plenty of recognition for his service. He has been awarded many military awards, including the Distinguished Flying Cross, and in 2002, the naval carrier USS George H.W. Bush was named in his honor.
