    Last surviving U.S. WW1 vet dies...

    Not big news apparently, I think it's noteworthy.

    All wars are hell and WW1 was especially brutal. My he rest in peace. And, yes, I also believe the news is noteworthy.

    Wow, I had no idea that so few were left. My grandpa was a WWI vet, and it seems like just a couple of years ago that he passed.
