By 2036

Today I was reminded of the below... for *ahem* some reason.... The last paragraph of the article about the woman who got the letter from her father 69 years after he died in WW2, my added emphasis, close-tags don't fail me now:

Eddington-Smith's father is buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis. He was among the more than 400,000 Americans who died in World War II. Of the some 16 million U.S. service members in the war, less than 2 million are alive today. The Veterans Administration estimates that by 2036, there will be no surviving World War II vets.
