HOUSTON (AP) – The Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation has given former President George H.W. Bush an award for his public service and government career.
Bush was given the LBJ Liberty and Justice for All Award Tuesday at his Houston office. The foundation said in a statement that Bush personifies his fellow Texan president’s vision for America.
Johnson’s two daughters, Luci Baines Johnson and Lynda Johnson Robb, attended the presentation of the award to Bush and his wife, Barbara.
This is the second time the foundation has given the award. The first recipient was U.S. Rep. John Lewis, the Georgia Democrat and civil rights leader.
