    Nice there is some recognition of WW I vets.

    I keep thinking of the funeral of my great-aunt Kate about 30 years ago and the little honor guard of old, shaky, bleary eyed WW I vets who proudly saluted the flag on her coffin. She was a USN Yeomanette or Yeoman-F. She never got farther than the Boston Navy Yard but she was a proud veteran and proud that she made Petty Officer. God bless them all!
