    I read about this yesterday. Not only was this guy super old but he'd done so many amazing things in his career in the armed forces and throughout his life. He was truly a man to live life to its fullest potential.

    Also, this seems appropriate - YouTube - The Last Post

    With this last participant passed, it now falls to us to remember that they fought, and why, and how much was paid in the fighting, so that their sacrifices are kept worthwhile. Wars such as this were not just lessons in a history textbook or fodder for movies and video games, they were real, true lives lost in a scale rarely seen before or since. They were blood and smoke and unimaginable cruelty as well as valor, a fragile peace paid dearly with the lives of millions of young men, and a peace in this case whose making lacked foresight and the determination to uphold it, even as nations still mourned an entire generation killed or maimed. We must endeavor to escape the mistakes they made, before, during and after, for only in that way does such a global tragedy hold even a shred of value.

    There is no longer any living link to those events, no person to point to and say "look, he was there, this is still relevant today", it is now in our hands to carry the torch of remembrance.
