    1918. 18 years old to join the army. some snuck in younger, so lets say 15 years old.

    You would have to be in yer hundreds to still be alive. I’m glad five of em lived that long.

    Although, true, the implications of a generation that doesn’t know the First or Second World War as much as we do is frightening. They shaped the Capitalistic world we live in…

    then again, 2 Gulf Wars in 15 years. and more to come. Primarily about Oil. And soon, more, Priumarily about Water Rights.

    Should be interesting. I mean interesting in the way that Chinese proverb wishes upon one the good fortune of living in Uninteresting times.
