The Last of the Titans

There’s a nice little piece over at the NYT on the 20 or so remaining World War I veterans.

These men fascinate me. I can’t imagine what it was like for them back in, say, 1917, when they were watching their friends and comrades get slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands. Just imagine not only surviving that horror but hanging on for another 90 years. What an awesome responsibility.
