An Air Force jet, designated "Special Air Mission 41", landed at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, D.C., Monday afternoon, carrying the body of former President George Herbert Walker Bush.

A similar outpouring is anticipated in Washington this week during the state funeral for Bush, who died late on Friday at his home in Houston.

The casket containing the remains of the 41st president was then transported to the U.S. Capitol rotunda, where Bush will lie in state until Wednesday morning's state funeral at Washington National Cathedral.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., remembered volunteering for Bush's 1988 presidential campaign, including handing out literature at ballgames and at '"the Rock County 4-H fair".

"As one person said, he can do just about anything except make you a martini, but not to worry, he can go get you someone to make you a martini", Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said in June. "Bush of course was defeated for re-election and most people at the time considered him a failed president" because of a recession during his time in the White House. He also led the U.S.to a military victory in reversing Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's takeover of Kuwait. The elder Bush's body will be buried in a family plot at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.

Moreover, Sabato told VOA Bush benefits from a comparison with Trump's demeanor almost halfway through the current president's first term in the White House. The number is a reference to Bush's place in the roster of America's presidents. "And the contrast between George H.W. Bush and the current president could not be more stark".

"I think he was one of the kindest, most generous men", said Marge Frazier, who visited the downtown statue on Sunday while showing friends from California around. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-mast for 30 days out of respect for Bush.

The official schedule for ceremonies honoring the late George H.W. Bush was released on Saturday. "President Trump is scheduled to speak with President George W. Bush this morning and offer his condolences on behalf of himself, the first lady, and the entire country".
