Here, Heritage is our Hero®.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963), 35th president of the United States, remains for many a captivating and charismatic personality. From the Peace Corps and his advocacy to end racial segregation to his bold goal of landing a man on the moon, he appealed to the nation's higher ideals and inspired a generation to engage in public service.
His tragic and untimely death on November 22, 1963, left the nation grief-stricken. We remember the 100th anniversary of his birth with this commemorative stamp.
