WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former President George H.W. Bush returned to his old office on Tuesday for a brief meeting with President Obama.
Bush, the 41st president of the United States is in Washington to recieve the Presidential Medal of Freedom later this afternoon in the East Room. He is one of 15 recipients to receive the nation's highest civilian honor. Maya Angelou, Warren Buffet, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Rep. John Lewis, and Yo-Yo Ma are some of the other recipients.
Today's meeting is not the first for the two presidents. Obama traveled to College Station, Texas in October 2009 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bush's 'Points of Light Institute,' and Obama met the former president, and his son, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, in the Oval Office in January of last year when they were in Washington to attend a dinner at the Alfalfa Club.
