    Hard to believe this entire generation is gone. The last US WWI vet died just last year
    Sleep in peace, comrades dear,
    God is near.

    To the last to have witnessed what was the stupidest, most pointless war in history, we salute you.

    I don't want to be a "downer" and I'm very glad she is recognized for her contributions - but there could be, in Russia, E. Eruope or maybe even in Africa - places in the world where the media and records are not so modern - one or more vets we don't know of.
