Thanks for the info, Shadetree (something about those medals made me think possibly Russia, but I couldn't see them clearly enough in the photo).
So Maybe US WWII veterans ARE already gone... My father enlisted in the Navy in early 1942 at age 20, served in the Pacific Navy until the end of the war and came home in late 1945 (crossing the International Date Line on Christmas Day in 1945). I still have the 'menus' from his ship where they got a 'Christmas Dinner' two straight days on that crossing. He was a Navy Radioman, who was assigned to the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force for a portion of the war, being commended for bravery and courage under fire by the Marine Commanding General when he went ashore with the first wave of Marines when they retook Bougainville (something I never knew until going thru his discharge papers upon his death in 2006, at age 84).
Any WWII veteran who actually served prior to the end of the war, would be very old. Assuming the earliest possible age (16 or 17?) in 1945, he would have been born ~ 1928 or so, and would be at LEAST 95 by now and even that is a pretty unlikely scenario, as any who actually served in the war would likely be ~ 100 by now.
