Rest in peace, sir. You certainly earned it.

Freeman was a mortarman, dropping onto the French shore in 1944 with an 18-pound mortar baseplate on his chest, according to Columbus Air Force Base, which honored his service last year. During the celebration, at which the base presented Freeman with a challenge coin, he offered brief remarks thanking people at the gathering.

"Me and my buddies did a job for America. … Now it’s time for new faces to take up the cause," Freeman said.

I saw an article that said at the end of 2021 there were only 397 ww2 vets still alive.

ETA. After some googling the number appears to be about 240k. But we’re losing tens of thousands every year.
