108! Wow. The storys that man would have told! Can you just imagine the things he saw and the changes that occured during his lifetime? I would like to have been able to talk to him.

My Grandad just turned 95 last fall and is in great health still.

Anyone know about the guy who was always on the History channel when ever they did a WW1 show? Was he from the US? Is he still alive?

I don't know Superport. I think I know who you are talking about but don't know the answer. Email the hirtoy channel, they could probably tell you.

Welcome to Wattflyer by the way!:D
