2010 Vacation Slideshow - Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

Something we learned while visiting the Reagan Presidential Library which I found interesting is President Reagan was never in the Oval office without his tie and coat on. He had a private study off of the Oval office which he went to when he needed to loosen his tie and relax but he never set foot in the Oval office without his coat and tie. It was his way of showing respect for all those who had occupied the office before him and to respect the office and what it symbolizes.
Also, there is a picture of saddle bags that are on display. These saddle bags were on the saddle of President Reagan's security guard when they went out to ride. The bags carried the nuclear launch codes.
