Florence Green, the last surviving person to have served in World War One, has died at the age of 110 years old. Will you take a moment today to reflect on the loss of a generation?
As a student of military history, it pains me to see this generation go and to know that I will likely live to see the same thing happen to the WWII, Korea, and Vietnam generations. The Great War changed the course of history forever and Florence Green was the last living historical treasure to have experienced it from the perspective of someone who served.
Will you take the time today to reflect on the importance of history and people like her? If you know someone who is still alive who is connected to some historical event, will you work to preserve their story?
