George HW Bush's final journey to the Capitol

Washington to pay respects, bid farewell to George H.W. Bush

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted Monday that Bush will be laid to rest wearing gray socks honoring his days as a naval aviator.

Following the funeral in Washington, Bush's casket will be returned to Houston, where a private service is scheduled for Thursday.

"He will be working alongside fellow VetDogs facility dogs SGT Dillon and SGT Truman who are there to assist with physical and occupational therapy to wounded soldiers and active duty personnel during their journey to recovery at Walter Reed Bethesda", the organization said.

Michael Dukakis, who lost to George H.W. Bush in the 1988 presidential election, said Saturday that his former political foe's legacy was his effort to help end the Cold War.

The report noted that Sully can perform a number of commands, including answering the phone and fetching specific items.

Wreaths were placed at the casket by congressional leaders from both parties, as the Bush family, including former President George W. Bush looked on.

Sully worked for Bush over the summer after former First Lady Barbara Bush died.

Though Matthews has three goals and an assist in the past two games, there's some room for improvement. The contract also comes with a $24.5 million signing bonus, per Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos .

John Miller, president and CEO of America's VetDogs, thanked Bush for his work and vision for helping Americans with disabilities.

Soon after, he reached the height of his political popularity following the liberation of Kuwait, with public approval ratings that are the envy of today's politicians, the US economy began to sour and voters began to believe that Bush, never a great communicator - something even he acknowledged - was out of touch with ordinary people. The train will take about 2½ hours to travel roughly 70 miles to the city of College Station, home to Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

Bush died Friday at his home in Houston at age 94.

On Monday, George H.W. Bush's faithful service dog Sully made a final journey back to the United States capital with the late president. A funeral service is set for Wednesday at the National Cathedral.

During this service Bush's grandson George P. Bush will speak as will Bush's best friend, James Baker, Bush's chief of staff and Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury.

George H.W. Bush's casket will lie in state from 5 p.m. Monday until 10 a.m. on Wednesday. The crew has been tasked by President Trump with carrying out "Special Air Mission 41". As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act.
