So the last living participant in the Great War is no more. That is incredibly sad. I have spent much of my career reading and researching that war, and between 1995 and 1996 I interviewed eight surviving U.S. World War I vets. Three of them had fathers who had served in the Civil War; one's father was born a slave. Those conversations were an amazing chance to touch base with men whose lives began in the 1890's. It saddens me that they are now all gone.
Rest in peace, dear lady, and all who served alongside you. You earned it.
