America's oldest World War I vet died last Sunday. Ernest Pusey was one of fourteen surviving U.S. veterans of The Great War, and was thought to be the third-oldest man in the world.
In a life that touched three centuries, Pusey was a sailor, a machinist, a husband, a father and an unrepentant flirt.
Sure, he was 111 - but that didn't stop Pusey from having bellydancers and Buccaneer cheerleaders at his last birthday party.
"Oh, he loved the ladies," granddaughter Kathy Dieck said. "He was looking as long as he could see." [Link]
