SAN ANTONIO – As the nation says goodbye to its 41st president George H.W. Bush, it is fitting that the Secret Service shared a special memory of the former world leader, code name Timberwolf.
The U.S. Secret Service shared a photo of Timberwolf after he shaved his head in 2013 in solidarity with the rest of the agents on his detail who were supporting a fellow agent whose son was diagnosed with leukemia.
Bush was no stranger to the disease; he and wife Barbara had a daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953 at age 3.
View the photos of Bush and his detail with bald heads below:
Everyone's #TuesdayThoughts are on President Bush & we wanted to share a memory. In '13, Timberwolf learned that the 2-year-old son of an agent on his detail was diagnosed with leukemia & the detail was going to shave their heads. You can see what happened, in classic 41 manner. pic.twitter.com/3Y0vnjNruJ— U.S. Secret Service (@SecretService) December 4, 2018
