In 5 years, no World War II veterans?

According to statistics released by the Veterans Administration, World War II veterans are dying at a rate of approximately 492 a day.

This means there are approximately only 855,070 veterans remaining of the 16 million who served our nation in World War II.

Boy, do we owe those veterans a HUGE debt.

If they and millions of others who fought Hitler’s insanity hadn’t prevailed, I would have had to write:

Junge, tun wir die Veteranen einen riesigen Schuldenberg zu verdanken.

If 492 a day on average keep dying, then the last World War II veteran will die in less than 5 years.

God bless them all.
