President George H.W. Bush was escorted through the heart of Houston as the motorcade made its way toward Air Force One at Ellington Field Join Reserve Base.
When President H.W. Bush lies in state in the Capitol Rotunda starting Monday evening, he will be wearing a pair of socks that “pay tribute to his lifetime of service,” family spokesman Jim McGrath says.
Bush was known for wearing colorful, often whimsical socks. Days before the Texas primary in March, he wore red, white and blue socks with emblazoned with the word “VOTE.” He also wore book-themed socks to his wife Barbara’s funeral in April to celebrate her commitment to literacy.
On Monday, McGrath tweeted a photo of gray socks with several small jets flying in formations with tiny jetstreams behind them. The former president flew more than 50 combat missions in World War II, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
“The 41st President will be carried to his final rest wearing socks that pay tribute to his lifetime of service, starting as an 18 year-old naval aviator in war,” McGrath tweeted. “That legacy is now being carried, in part, by the brave, selfless men and women” aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush.
