George and Barbara Bush celebrate 69 years of marriage
That's how former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush are marking their 69th wedding anniversary, according to a spokesman.
Jim McGrath tells CNN that with Barbara Bush recovering from pneumonia, the two are celebrating their anniversary at home.
The couple were married on Jan. 6, 1945, in Rye, New York, when George H.W. Bush was home on leave from the Navy during World War II.
Barbara Bush, 88, was released Saturday from Houston's Methodist Hospital after six days of treatment for pneumonia, according to a family statement.
