Bush Se­cret Ser­vice de­tail signs off

Toronto Sun - - NEWS -

COL­LEGE STA­TION, Tex. — The U.S. Se­cret Ser­vice has ended its de­tail for Ge­orge H.W. Bush af­ter nearly 40 years of pro­tect­ing the for­mer pres­i­dent, who was known by the code name “Tim­ber­wolf.”

The agency says its se­cu­rity de­tail of­fi­cially ended at 6 a.m. Fri­day “with no in­ci­dents to re­port” fol­low­ing Bush’s burial Thurs­day at his pres­i­den­tial li­brary at Texas A&M Univer­sity.

In its fi­nal no­ti­fi­ca­tion, the Bush Pro­tec­tive Divi­sion said: “You will be missed by all of us.”

Agents served as hon­orary pall­bear­ers dur­ing some of this week’s events hon­our­ing the 41st pres­i­dent.

On Twit­ter, the agency shared pho­tos of when Bush shaved his head to sup­port an agent’s 2-year-old son who had leukemia.

Bush was buried next to his wife, Bar­bara, and their daugh­ter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted pho­tos from the pri­vate ser­vice.

Bush died Nov. 30 at age 94.
