When I was a child, when in town, in early fifties there were many Veterans of WWI. I remember some of them. They had little to do with small children. They were mostly in mid fifties to early sixties. Mom's Dad wasn't Drafted because he had a broken foot. Seems strange they want him at over40 years old when the War started. There were several around from the Spanish American War. Dad's Grand Pa was not drafted because he was a Farmer or some such. What got me to thinking about it was Dad would have been 100 this September and yet he was way too young, only an Infant in 1917. The War has been over for near 100 years. Most all or all of those who fought in it have crossed over. It was covered lightly, to best of memory, in School. In the nineties I talked with a couple of Vets of WWI already near 100 or over.Probably older. I don't remember their ages. Not long conversations. Perhaps I could have been able to get together with them for their memories. This is probably a rhetorical question: are there any WWI Vets alive, possibly Relative or Family Friend? Anyone have anything any memories of their Grand Fathers and Great Grand Fathers in the Great War. There is only one, that I have found with any input from WWI Vets and they were from the British Empire. So everything from here on will be second or third hand. If you have the memories the words the deeds, write them down. Even WWII Vets are crossing over way to fast. I ate at Arbys, year before last with a WWII Vet and talked quite a while. There is still one Vet at the VA or was three years ago, that served with the Navy in the Gulf and had much fascinating info on German Subs and ships sunk etc off Florida and the East Coast. He is slim and fit as a fiddle. He gets around better than most 35 year olds even if he smokes like a tar kill. If I chance to run into him again I'm going to get some of his memories on tape. He should be 95 now, I think.
