Rest in peace, Ms. Green. You and everyone who helped secure our freedom will always be remembered.

It’s something many of us rarely think about, yet when you do, it’s really sad and it strikes deep those of us who care about history and the sacrifices others have made for freedom.
LONDON — Florence Green, the world’s last known veteran of World War I, has died at the age of 110, the care home where she lived said Tuesday.
The last of that generation is gone forever. Let’s hope the keepers of history do their lives justice.
On behalf of a grateful nation……
