An emotional moment at the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday, when, with help, former Senator Bob Dole got out of his wheelchair and saluted the late former President George H.W. Bush.

Both men served in World War II.

The senator and his wife, Sen. Elizabeth Dole, recently released a statement on the former president’s passing.

“President Bush answered the call to serve whenever our nation needed him,” they stated, adding, “God bless this great man of faith and hold our dear friend close.”
