I just thought this was neat...

The last surviving American World War I veteran is scheduled to testify Thursday before a Senate Energy and Natural Resources subcommittee, which is considering a bill to designate the District of Columbia War Memorial as the “National and District of Columbia World War I Memorial.”

He's the only WWI survivor left and also served in WWII as a civilian contractor and was captured by the Japanese.
