MUST SEE: Bob Dole Rises From Wheelchair To Salute Fellow WW2 Veteran George H.W. Bush One Last Time

Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole arrived at the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday to honor the life of former President George H.W. Bush, who will lie in state until Wednesday, in a wheelchair being pushed by an aide.

It’s what happened next that has the world talking.

Once next to Bush’s American flag-draped casket, the aide helped Dole to his feet so that he could salute his fellow World War Two veteran once last time.
