Bob Dole Salutes Former President Bush

Dole Salutes Bush 12-4-18 USA TODAYFormer Senate Majority Leader and Russell native Bob Dole saluted President George H.W. Bush at the casket of the late president on Tuesday.

Like Bush, Dole is a World War II veteran.

He arrived in the Capitol rotunda in a wheelchair pushed by an aide. At the casket's side, the aide lifted 95-year-old Dole into a standing position.

Once steadied, Dole saluted.

Bush died last week in Houston at age 94.
