  It is indeed sad to see the end of the WW II generation. Over 2/3 of a century has passed since the end of the war. As the link below shows, there are only about a million still living out of over 16 million that served in the military during the war.

  I knew many, many of them, including several that I was related to. (Some would be well over 100 years old if they were still living). I even served with a few WW II vets. Now ALL of those that I knew are gone. I miss them a lot.
