Florence Green, who died at age 110, was the last known surviving veteran of World War I. She was serving with the Women’s Royal Air Force as a waitress at an air base in eastern England when the guns fell silent on November 11, 1918. It was not until 2010 that she was officially recognized as a veteran after a researcher found her service record in Britain’s National Archives.  Green died February 7, 2012 at the Briar House Care Home in King’s Lynn, eastern England, two weeks before her 111th birthday, the home said.
