Jim Bush
Commander - Air Force

Jim was born and raised in Chicagoland. He served on active duty in the United States Air Force from 1983 to 2007. When Jim retired, he and his family returned to his wife’s hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming.

During his career he served just over a decade in Europe and the remaining fourteen years in the continental United States, including being assigned to F. E. Warren Air Force Base, WY on two occasions. He likes to tell people God sent him back to Cheyenne because he did not meet his wife on the first go around.

In 2014 Jim became a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Frontier Post 11453 and during the spring of 2016-2019 he performed the duties of Post Quartermaster. From 2019-2020 served as Junior Vice Commander. In 2020 he began serving as Post Commander. Additionally in 2019 he started a 3-year commitment as Trustee for VFW Wyoming District 5.
