May is Older Americans Month

May 13, 2013

During Older Americans Month and throughout the year, we urge Americans to appreciate and celebrate the many contributions of older individuals to our society.

More than 9 million American seniors (ages 65 and older) are veterans of the armed forces and approximately 16% are in the labor force. According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, about 1 in 3 volunteers is 55 years or older.

To older Americans: thank you for making a positive difference in our nation and in our communities!
