Figuratively Eleventh Hour Post

Via Lawyers, Guns and Money I learned that there were only three surviving veterans of World War I, which ended (on the Western Front at least) at 11:00 AM on this date in 1918.

Many thanks to those among us who served and those who continue to serve, on land, at sea and in the air, and to those who have given the last full measure of their devotion in the service of the United States of America.

Strangely, I only have ancestors who served in the Revoloutionary, Mexican, and Civil Wars. No 20th-century-ers. But I guess they helped establish the country the WWI-IIers protected.
