The former commander-in-chief still finds time to help build homes for Habitat Humanity. That’s not the only record broken by an American president, let’s have a look at five others.
- Speaking of age, John F. Kennedy at 43 years old was the youngest elected president, but he wasn’t the youngest man to ever serve as commander-in-chief. In 1901, Theodore Roosevelt, 42, became the youngest president after William McKinley’s assassination.
