We are losing so many and they aren't getting any younger. . .

Just read today that several WWII reunions have either held their last reunion or plan on this year being their last.
The survivors of the Arizona in Pearl Harbor will hold there last one this Dec. 7th.
Only seven of the remaining nine will make it this year and organizers feel it is becoming a hardship for the last few. Several plan on returning on their own as long as they can, but it will no longer be an official event. Here is there story.

While this year will be the final one for the survivors of the Arizona, the 5th Armored Division and survivors of the Doolittle Raid have already held theirs.

The generation that served in WW2 will be sourly missed.

Out of about 16 million Americans who served in WW2 only about 1 million remain.
