Our only surving WWI veteran is apparently John Babcock, at 108 years old. He signed up when he was only 15, lying about his age so he could serve his country. But he was repeatedly discovered and sent to different bases away from the combat zone, and the war ended before he saw any action.
But that sure was a different time. Can anyone imagine a 15 year old attempting such a thing nowadays?
