Lloyd Brown


CHARLOTTE HALL, Md. - Lloyd Brown, the last known surviving World War I Navy veteran, has died. He was 105.
Brown died Thursday at the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home in St. Mary's County, according to family and the U.S. Naval District in Washington.

How strange to see this picture up on Yahoo news. I met him two or three weeks ago for the first time. He said that when he went into the navy they scrubbed the wooden decks with sand and a brick. He wasn't getting around well on his own but he was still sharp. We were there for another vet's birthday but meeting Lloyd was a plesent surprise. I'm glad we could meet him and share some strawberry shortcake with him. He lived a full life. God bless.

Are they still saying those things? (about me, the stewardess, the gas mask, the fire engine, and the goats?)

But thanks. (and if they're not saying things about me, the stewardess, the gas mask, the fire engine, and the goats, then never mind. They're all lies anyway)
