The Passing of Some Noteable Veterns of the First World War

There are now less then 80 veterans of the first World War (1914-1918) left alive in the world today. I want to take a moment to note the passing of a few who have crossed over lately.

First Lloyd Brown, who was the last living person to have joined the U.S. Navy before the German Armistice.

Charlotte Winters, the last surviving American female veteran of the war.

The British Philip Mayne, thought to be the last surviving 'officer' of the first World War.
