Former diplomat and presidential advisor Henry Kissinger is celebrating his 100th birthday, outlasting many of his political contemporaries who navigated the United States through one of its most tumultuous periods including the presidency of Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War.
Henry Kissinger was born in Germany on May 27, 1923.
Kissinger is still well-known for his significant contribution to American foreign policy during the 1960’s and 1970’s, including some of the most contentious decisions on the Vietnam War.
In The Washington Post, David Kissinger reports that his father will travel this week to celebrate in New York, London, and his native Furth, Germany.
