41st President; honored right down to his socks

Washington D. C. (KNOP) - As former President George H. W. Bush is laid to rest this week, his funeral will honor his lifetime of service, right down to his socks - the pair he will wear as he is laid to rest.

Mr. Bush was especially fond of socks, as he often displayed the different pairs he wore to events. For his trip from Washington D. C. to Texas, and to his final resting place, he will wear a pair worthy of mention.

The design displays military jets flying in formation. It's a nod to his service as a young naval aviator in World War Two. Bush's spokesman tweeted a picture of the socks, along with a mention of the U.S.S. George H. W. Bush - the aircraft carrier names after the former president.
