5 for National Day of Mourning

Sully The Service Dog Arrives To View Owner George H.W. Bush's Casket

Although President Donald Trump will attend Bush's national funeral service on Wednesday, he is not among the eulogists announced by the Bush family, a list that includes the late president's son, former President George W. Bush.

A Connecticut Yankee from a wealthy family who moved to Texas to be an oilman, Bush has been eulogized as a president with a keen sense of civility and duty.

Union Pacific originally commissioned the Bush locomotive for the opening of an exhibit at his presidential library titled "Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse".

"I think he was one of the kindest, most generous men", visitor Marge Frazier said.

"President Bush worked selflessly throughout his long life to bring about a world of justice and lasting peace". President from 1989 to 1993, Bush died Friday at 94.

Mourners lined up to enter the Capitol beginning Monday evening for the public viewing.

Trained to assist United States army veterans as part of the VetDogs programme, Sully was joined by several army veterans - some of who were in wheelchairs from injuries incurred during their time in action - and one of the late president's sons, Neil Bush.

John McCain was the last person to lie in state at the Capitol after his death in August.

Trump, the day before, spent 20 minutes visiting Bush family members, who were staying at Blair House, across the street from the White House.

Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days. "The Bush family's active participation in the Kennebunkport community has touched many lives".

A humble hero of World War II, Mr Bush was just 20 when he survived being shot down during a bombing run over a Japanese island.

THe US Postal Service will not deliver regular mail. He served in Congress, as ambassador to the United Nations, chaired the Republican National Committee, was an envoy to China, director of the Central Intelligence Agency and vice president before being elected president in 1988.
