JFK’s Life Celebrated On His Centennial


The life and legacy of President John F. Kennedy, who died at age 46, will be celebrated on the day he would have turned 100.

The United States Postal Service plans to commemorate Kennedy’s centennial Monday with a dedication of a new JFK postage stamp in Brookline, Massachusetts. Brookline is a Boston suburb where the late president was born on May 29, 1917.

USPS Boston Postmaster Nick Francescucci and representatives from the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site— JFK’s birthplace and childhood home — are expected to attend.
