Last WWI Navy Vet Dies In Md. At 105 link
Apr. 1 - The last known surviving U.S. Navy veteran of World War One has died at the age of 105.
Lloyd Brown died Thursday at a veterans home in Maryland.

His death comes days after the death of the last known surviving American female World War One veteran, Charlotte Winters, who was 109.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the deaths leave three known survivors who served in the Army, and a fourth who lives in Washington state but served in the Canadian army.

Brown was born in 1901 in Lutie, Missouri, a small farming town in the Ozarks. His family later moved to Chadwick, Missouri. In 1918, the 16-year-old lied about his age to join the Navy and served as a member of the gun crew on the battleship USS New Hampshire.

Did the US Navy see any action in WW1 beyond anti U Boat work and convoys that is? Just a thought as the gerries navy spent most of the war bottled up!
Edited to add not a dig just a question?
