Frank Livingston, the oldest living man in the United States and the oldest verified surviving American World War II veteran, has died at 110.

Born in North Carolina and one of seven children, Levingston enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1942. He served as a private during the war in the Allied invasion of Italy which lasted from September 1943 to January 1944.

According to the History Channel. 1000 American WWII Veterans die EVERY DAY.

Notice how our Pretender-in-chief NEVER mentioned the loss of our SEAL TEAM MEMBER in Iraq???

And the W/H brags about supporting our Military members?

Just like Hillary lied to the families of the Benghazi Murders? NATA!

Yes...I noticed it all and more.

Not to make this political, but why would anyone want another Dem in the CIC position?
