The President's plane is arriving at Andrews Air Force Base at this moment.
Just arrived at Andrews.
Yes, it is.
I am so pleased to see this for President Ford.
He didn't serve long....but, it was his tenure at the helm that served to heal this nation and help it recover from one of its darkest hours.
I will always be grateful.
And, I pray our former President rests in the peace in our Lord's hands.
I Agree, Compared to what I was watching earlier with the dancin en singin in GA.
Thank you....Hail to the Chief....21 Gun salute.
I am glad I didn't miss this.
President's plan their own funerals.
I wonder if he planned his for nightfall.
If so, I think it's a perfect time. It really sets a proper funeral mood.
"21 Gun salute"
US Army Field Artillery - King of Battle!
I'm sitting here at working listening to someone say, "between Ford,Brown and Saddam they're just 3 dead men"......no different then me.......nice huh.....I didn't say a word......you can't argue with stupidity.
My Country Tis of Thee. I managed to make it about one minute without crying.
That kind of stuff is best left for Irish wakes... I like funerals sad, dignified and patriotic.
Doubt it. To plan for a nightfall arrival in DC he would have needed to plan the date of his death, too.
Amen..I have lost my husband..It is so very difficult.
It's all Ford's fault ;0)
God Bless him and his family
Thanks for this...I am too, and thought it was just me.
Hey .. we aren't aren't that bad :0)
I thought the "Whip Inflation Now" buttons were ridiculous but compared to the GOP PR going on today they were stellar.
Children today do not even know that song. I went to Catholic school and sang that song everyday after the "Pledge". Times have changed so much.
They said that James Brown's clothes had been changed for all three funerals, so far...
Oh yes we are and you know it. :)
Me too. Everything is so precise. From the half steps to the way they handle the charges for the 21 gun salute.
Hope Mrs Ford got some rest on the way to DC.
