Lloyd Brown (October 7, 1901 – March 29, 2007) was one of the last surviving American veterans of the First World War and also the last member of the United States Navy to have signed up before the German armistice. Born in Lutie, Missouri, Brown enlisted at age 16, and after the end of the war, he worked at a Washington, D.C. firefighter company covering the White House and foreign embassies.[1]

His age of 105 is subject to some dispute, as he may have been 'only' 104 based on the 1910 Census.
