I was just curious. Who was the last living general/admiral officer of WWII? Was it SS general Wilhelm Mohnke? He died in 2001 and I remember it being on the radio/TV about him being one of the last generals of WWII to die. American James Van Fleet died in 1992 and he was the oldest living American general officer at the time of his death and I believe the last living US general of WWII . The last 5-star (US) died in 1981, Omar Bradley. I would think all the generals would all be dead by now considering that they would have had to have some age on them during WWII to achieve that rank. I don't know much at all about the Admirals.
