MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Congressman John Kline had a chance to witness first-hand the devotion Nancy Reagan shared with her husband, former President Ronald Reagan.

Kline served as a military aide, the one who carries the “nuclear football” - the brief case the commander in chief can use to authorize a nuclear attack while away from the White House or other command center.

Kline’s job kept him close to the Reagans. He describes Nancy Reagan as a source of strength for her husband. He says that the Reagans partnership was a service to the country. WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1ROO3HN ) reports Kline says it was clear to many how close the couple was and how protective she was of her husband.

Nancy Reagan died Sunday at age 94.
