Former US president Jimmy Carter celebrated his 95th birthday on Tuesday, becoming the longest-serving US president in the nation’s history.
Carter, the 39th president of the United States, took office between 1977 and 1981 and remains a resident of Georgia.
Jimmy Carter, born in 1924 and raised in the depression in the 1920s, participated in the US Navy as an officer during World War II. He had trouble walking after surgery in May, but he remains active and participates in his center programs. He and his wife, Rosalyn, founded in Atlanta in 1982 and still lecture and participate in humanitarian work.
Last spring, Carter became the longest-serving US president in history, surpassing George H W Bush, who died in 2018.
Rosalyn, 92, is one of the longest-lived former first ladies. She married President Jimmy Carter 73 years ago.
