BEAUMONT — Over 2,400 A&M Corps of Cadets will line the streets as President George H.W. Bush's motor brings his body to his final resting place at The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College State. It's already the resting place for his wife Barbara and daughter Robin.
One of those Cadets, a Beaumont native, Ty Fuselier.
The Corps of Cadets have a set of values they follow, honor, courage, integrity, discipline and self service.
Once Ty graduates from A&M he will be an officer in the United States Navy. It's an honor that makes his mother and family proud.
His mother Kristi Fuselier tells 12News her family comes from a line of Military Officers. Her father and grandfather served in the Army. Her son will be the first Navy Officer the in family.
For Ty, this moment is extra special because he and President Bush share a common life goal, serving our country.
"He was a naval aviator in WWII, he was actually I think the youngest, you know right out of high school. He was like you know I am going to go serve my country and that's special for me because that's what I want to do, I want to go. That's why I am here. I am under a Navy contract and I want to get my wings soon."
