    Hell yeah they do

    It's also kind of sad that there's not many of them left. Would love to read their journals

    I have an 103 year-old Grandpa. Does that count for anything? I'm 13-3/4 years-old by the way.
    (No bragging intended)

    That is amazing how he wanted to be in the army so much he'd "increase his age" and serve in WWI. And was a POW for 39 months.

    Its amazing that anyone who went near the frontlines of WW1 was still alive at the end of 1918, let alone at the start of 2008.
