Charlotte Winters, 109, died. She was the last surviving woman member of the U.S. military to serve in World War I. The New York Times story is here:

Just imagine: She was born not in the last century, but the one before that, the end of the 19th century. She served in the First World War, lived through the Second World War and the entire 20th century, saw the world go from horse-and-buggy to the space age to the computer age, where every person on Earth can communicate with everyone else in an instant.

Wow.

Wish she rests in peace.
