Longtime politician and WW2 veteran, Bob Dole, died today at the age of 98. He lost the use of one arm in World War 2, fighting in several campaigns and earned the Purple Heart. As a United States senator from 1969 to 1998, the republican ran for president in 1996 against Bill Clinton, but lost handily as the US was in the midst of an economic boom, the biggest one until Trump engineered a bigger one during his term.
Flags were ordered at half-mast nationwide, while he laid in state at the United States Capitol. Senator Dole will be remembered for years to come and will be known as a statesman and great man and he is being missed already by so many of his friends on both sides of the aisle.
