George W. Bush's nephew chosen for intelligence unit of the Navy reserves

George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush, has been selected as one of 15 prospective ensigns for the intelligence unit of the Navy reserves.

He and the other members of the Class of 2007 will be sworn in this year, Lt. Cmdr. Bill Schroeder of the Navy Reserve Intelligence Command in Fort Worth said Wednesday. They will go through a two-week officer indoctrination school, a year of Navy basic intelligence training and be assigned to Navy reserve intelligence units close to their homes.

Navy intelligence officers collect and analyze information and provide guidance to help war fighters make decisions critical on the battlefield, Schroeder said.

Bush, a 30-year-old graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, will get no special treatment, he said.

"He will be held to the same standards as all of his other shipmates," Schroeder said. "He will go through the same training. He will have the same duties and responsibilities and have to display the same commitment as the rest of his shipmates."

The 15 were selected in February by a panel of Navy officers who considered their qualifications, skills and education, the AP reports.

A message left at a political action committee led by George P. Bush was not immediately returned.
