Former President George H.W. Bush, 93, spent Saturday morning greeting veterans at the American Legion Post 159 in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Delighted to join the veterans, including my dear friend Gen. Brent Scowcroft, at the @AmericanLegion Post 159 monthly pancake breakfast in Kennebunkport today. This weekend we remember, and thank, all who have given their lives for our great country. pic.twitter.com/VQgfPmt5rw

The former president has spent every summer in Kennebunkport since he was a child, with only one notable exception: the time he spent overseas, serving as a naval aviator during the war.
Bush recently arrived at the family summer home at Walker’s Point following the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush and a bout with an infection that spread to his blood.
