Florence Green Was 110 Years Old
The last known veteran of WWI passed away Saturday night.
Florence Green, who was just shy of her 111th birthday, had been a
mess steward for the RAF during the war.
The BBC reports that Green joined the RAF at the age of 17. She
served on two air bases after enlisting in September of 1918, just
two months before the armistice was signed.
The last combatant to pass away was a Royal Navy Sailor, Claude
Choules, who died in May of last year. The last American WWI
veteran to pass away was Frank Buckles in February, 2011. All were
110 years old.
