Time is running out to find and recognize the last remaining veterans of "The Great War."
The rolls of World War I veterans have declined so rapidly that the day is fast approaching when there will be one remaining, then none.
The VA, with assistance from historians, state agencies and others, is keeping a roster of those veterans.
Three years ago, there were about 250 remaining WWI American veterans. Yet, there may be other WWI veterans out there, perhaps in private nursing homes or in the care of family members, who have not been identified by VA.

If you know of any WWI veterans in your area, please contact VA's Office of Public Affairs in Washington, DC, at opaweb@va.gov
