Question:  I understand that Frank Buckles who died earlier this year was the last American veteran of World War I.  Are there any veterans alive today that can still claim Armistice Day being in the service back during the Great War?

 

Answer: There is all but one veteran remaining.  Mrs. Florence Green was born at Edmonton, London, England in 1901.  She is currently still living with her daughter who is in her 90's.  Florence is the last survivor of World War I.  She served England with the Wome Royal Air Force 1918-1919.
