Each Wednesday the Citizen Tribune shares a photo from the formative years of the Boomer Generation. Born from 1946 to 1964, the Boomer Generation was created when the members of the G.I. Generation returned from World War II. There were 79,907,844 Boomer Generation children born. The formative years for Boomers range from the late 1940s through the late 1970s.
