Last WWI Combat Veteran Laid to Rest

Last WWI Combat Veteran Laid to Rest

Wow, and there are only 7 other WWI vets alive and none of them were ever sent overseas.

From the article-

Ramsey's lifetime spanned three centuries and 19 presidents. He was born in Rico, Colo., on April 2, 1898, when the U.S. flag had just 45 stars and President McKinley was preparing to declare war with Spain.


Go read the whole thing. I didn't see any press on this at all other than on Military.com.
