"I'm glad members of my family are giving their version of what it was like to serve the country," Bush said during an interview on “Fox and Friends.” "I did the same thing."

Bush also said he doesn’t plan to endorse any of the Republican presidential candidates officially, though he will "remain an interested observer" of the race.

"I also follow baseball," Bush quipped. "I'm not going back into the limelight."
