Statista – “16 million Americans fought in the Second World War but today, their ranks are dwindling. U.S. men and women who fought in the conflict are now in their late 80s or early 90s with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reporting that just under a million WWII veterans were alive in 2015. With an average of 362 dying every day, it raises a sad and depressing question: when will the U.S. lose the last of its WWII veterans?”
