Aaron’s otherwise wonderful tribute to a now-deceased Bataan Death March veteran is slightly off. As my friend Kate notes, Mr. Brown was the oldest, but not the last: There are other remaining survivors:

Mr. Brown is clearly an American hero – as are the remaining American survivors of the Death March, including the remarkable Ben Steele, who, though he hesitates to buy green bananas these days, is still very much alive. https://www.tearsinthedarkness.com/ben-steele. In fact, the American Survivors of Bataan and Corregidor still meet annually, though their numbers are dwindling. Mr. Brown, indeed, was the oldest survivor.

I wrote about Ben Steele here and here.
