Saturday Tribute: Bob Dole's Final Mission

An incredibly touching article from The Washington Post about Kansas' Bob Dole and him greeting the Honor Flight veterans at the World War II Memorial.

After you have read the article: Some of us (I've had the pleasure of meeting and talking with our former senator on several occasions) have known the struggle Bob has had to dress himself daily. Can you imagine a half-hour just to put on a shirt and slacks with a nurse assisting? Bob used to insist on dressing himself in a suit and tie daily and I understood it took more than an hour. He had to use a button hook.

Regardless of your politics, Mr. Dole is a profile in courage.

Thank you, Washington Post.
