Former US Senator, US Army Second Lieutenant, United States Presidential and Vice Presidential candidate, father, and friend Robert Joseph Dole was laid to rest today, after a lifetime of service of 98 years.
Mr. Dole was a man of service, from a generation that is rare in the current generations of “leaders” that occupy positions of trust today.
Many friends, colleagues, and family members spoke of Mr. Dole’s compassion, leadership, and service. President Biden spoke of Mr. Dole’s ability to compromise and help millions of Americans funding programs such as the Veterans Administration, American Disabilty Act, and Medicaid expansion.
Dole’s daughter Robin Dole, gave a heartwarming tribute, saying Bob Dole “will never walk alone.”
