In Memoriam: Howard Bushman

The Army Historical Foundation remembers Howard Marshall Bushman, attorney and longtime resident of McLean, Virginia.  Bushman, a member of the Army Historical Foundation, passed away on May 28, 2016, at the age of 70.  He was born in St. Louis, Missouri on June 19, 1945 to Leonard and Tama Bushman.  He graduated from Murray State University and the University of Missouri-Columbia Law School before joining the Army.  He served in the Judge Advocate Generals Corps at Fort Riley and the Pentagon.  He remained in the Army Reserve until his retirement as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2005.  Although retired, he continued to be dedicated to the Army and veterans through various service and legal outlets.  He became the lawyer of choice—and friend—for many active and retired general officers and their families.  He wrote the original Articles of Incorporation for the Army Historical Foundation in 1983 and remained the Foundation’s lawyer and Secretary until his death.  BG Creighton Abrams noted, “Devoted to Army history as much as he was to baseball, Bushman made a significant mark on the Army Historical Foundation and the Army Museum Project.  He will be deeply missed by the entire AHF family.”
