Remembering Former First Lady Nancy Reagan

Another woman who served our country is being honored this week. Former first lady Nancy Reagan passed away Sunday, which is why flags at public buildings around America are flying at half-staff this week.

President Ronald Reagan's wife was an advisor to him when he served in the White House, and introduced several programs on her own that helped the American people.

Right now at the National First Ladies Museum in Canton, Ohio, an exhibit about her life is open. It includes pictures and items about Mrs. Reagan and items that she owned - from White House china to sewing implements with her initials, to films from her Hollywood movie career.

 A new video of her life started showing at the museum on Tuesday. Nancy Reagan was 94 years old.
