Bush's Belongings Arrive at Joint Reserve Base

The Air Force brings boxes and furniture from the Bush White House to Ft. Worth

While President Barack Obama was taking his oath of office at the U.S. Capitol, white box trucks pulled up to the back door of the White House and loaded boxes containing the last personal effects of President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush.

But, that process has actually been going on for two weeks now, according to Capt. T. D. Smyers, commanding officer at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth.

Tuesday afternoon, and over the past 14 days, Air Force planes have been landing at the JRB, delivering furniture and boxes of personal things removed from the Bush White House.    Many of those things will eventually end up in the new Bush residence in Dallas.  

Other items will go the the Bush Ranch in Crawford while the rest will go the Bush Presidential Library that is to be built on the SMU campus.  

The last shipment is expected Wednesday, making the 43rd President's move back home to Texas complete pending the final move into his new family's residence on Daria Place this March.
