Happy birthday, President George W. Bush! See how our 43rd president rang in his 70th year Facebook/@GeorgeWBush

Former President George W. Bush is celebrating his 70th birthday in true George W. Bush style.

Instead of relaxing on his special day, he took to the trails with wounded warriors showing the world he isn’t slowing down anytime soon and showing his continued commitment to our military.

Along with a photo posted to Facebook, he wrote: “Celebrating 70 on the trails with wounded warriors. ‪#‎43turns70‬.”

He followed up the first photo with another of him posing with a wounded veteran, with the caption: “Chris Self, gentleman-soldier, showing respect for his elders in black tie. ‪#‎43turns70‬.”

Well wishers were quick to wish the 43rd president a happy birthday and social media was full of birthday messages and greetings from some of his famous friends and colleagues.

Even with all of these famous names attached to birthday greetings, we have to admit our favorite came from the George W. Bush Presidential Library. This throwback photo shows a touching moment between father and son, dating all the way back to 1947.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

Happy birthday, President Bush!
