On Veterans Day, I would like to salute Ms. Lucy Coffey for her service to our country. Ms. Coffey is 108 years old and is America's oldest living female veteran.
400,000 women served in the Armed Forces during World War II, and more than 500 of them died. We salute Lucy and all the women who served in the war. Thank you!
Take a look at Lucy's visit to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. this summer. Oh, and also. Try and wrap your head around this factoid. Lucy's father fought in the Civil War!
God bless her...
