Former U.S. President George H. W. Bush received an award at the University of Kansas Sunday.
Bush was given the 2008 Bob Dole Leadership Prize at the Dole Institute of Politics Sunday. The elder Bush is very active with charities and travels to foreign and domestic areas to help those in need.
During the event, he talked about a number of issues including Desert Storm and how it changed the way the world looked at the U.S. military. At one point, hecklers interrupted him three times. Security escorted them from the room.
He went on talk about the criticism George W. Bush has endured over the years as president and said he continues to be strong as his term comes to an end.
Bush noted that president-elect Barack Obama has a big job ahead of him and he urged everyone to show their support.
