Default Only one US WWI Veteran still surviving now.

The next to last US WWI Veteran has died. An era has almost come to an end.

Anyone know about the guy who was always on the History channel when ever they did a WW1 show? Was he from the US? Is he still alive?

I don't know Superport. I think I know who you are talking about but don't know the answer. Email the hirtoy channel, they could probably tell you.

Welcome to Wattflyer by the way!
