Photo Of The Day


I found this photo from Roll Call particularly touching.

That’s Bob Dole giving a final salute to the casket of Daniel Inouye as it lies in state at the Capitol Building. Dole and Inouye first met at a military hospital in Washington, D.C. as the two men recovered from the injuries that they had sustained in battle during World War II. Dole was awarded the Bronze Star for his actions in battle the day he was injured. Inouye, of course, recieved the Congressional Medal Of Honor.

    It’s a sweet moment. From the same VA hospital to the Senate. And obviously Dole knows he’ll be there soon in an identical flag-draped coffin. Respect to both men.
