George HW Bush Makes History on His 94th Birthday

Mr. Bush celebrates his 94th birthday, becoming the first former president to reach this milestone.

Bush is in ME without his wife of 73 years, who died in April.

The former president has celebrated past birthdays by skydiving near his home in Maine.

Bush surpasses former President Ford, who died in 2006 at 93 years and 165 days. Two other former USA presidents made it to 93: deceased Republicans Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.

Another son, Neil Bush, used his dad's birthday Tuesday to call for people to volunteer and "to become a point of light".

Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter isn't far behind, at age 93, and he'll celebrate his 94th on October 1.

"Dad also understood that government alone can not solve all of our community challenges and, from his first day as president, he actively supported volunteer-powered service initiatives", he wrote.

Bush has been hospitalized twice since Barbara Bush's death and several times in recent years.
