The month of May is Older Americans Month, an annual observance that recognizes and honors the contributions of the nation’s past and present seniors — in particular, those who have served in the military. Older Americans Month originated in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy and the members of the National Council of Senior Citizens designated May as Senior Citizens Month, a prelude to Older Americans Month.
