BREAKING: Jimmy Carter Family Gives Sad Health Update

(SNews) – Jimmy Carter’s family gave a heartbreaking update on the former President’s health. They said he will spend his “remaining time” at home receiving hospice care instead of continuing to receive “medical intervention.

The statement says: “After a series of short hospital stays, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention.

“ He has the full support of his family and his medical team. The Carter family asks for privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by his many admirers.”

According to The Naval Institute:

Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro renamed the Naval Academy building, formerly named after a member of the Confederacy, after the only U.S. president to attend the institution.

Maury Hall, which was named after Matthew Fontaine Maury, considered the father of naval oceanography who joined the Confederacy, will now be known as Carter Hall, named after former President Jimmy Carter, who graduated from the academy in 1946, reads a Navy press release.

“When Secretary Austin directed us to implement the recommendations of the Naming Commission, he instructed us to give proud new names. Names that echo with honor, patriotism, and history. Names that will inspire generations of service members to defend our democracy and our Constitution,” Del Toro said during a renaming ceremony, according to the release.

“Today, on the Friday before Presidents Day weekend, that is exactly what we are doing. I can think of no one more worthy of this renaming than President Jimmy Carter.”

Carter is the only president to attend the academy.

“By naming this building in his honor we not only recognize his great contributions but ensure that his legacy will forever inspire our nation’s future leaders,” academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Sean Buck said in the release.

“For generations to come, when midshipmen walk the corridors of Carter Hall, I have no doubt that they will be reminded of President Carter’s example and his legacy of lifelong service, and reinvigorated with the call to serve we all answered when we took our first oath.”
