Last Man Standing

Reuters has this article on the last known living WWI Veteran. He is 107 years old. An interesting fact about this man is that he traveled to Europe on the Carpathia, the ship that rescued the survivors from the Titanic. He also just barely made it into the war at 15. He told the recruiting officer that Missouri didn't keep birth records and convinced him that he really was 18.
