France buried its last World War I veteran last week.
Actually, Lazare Ponticelli was Italian. Born at the end of 1897, he left Italy, when he was 9, to join his brothers who were already in France. When Germany invaded in August, 1914, Ponticelli, still 16 at the time, lied about his age in order to enlist in the Foreign Legion. He wanted to fight for the country that took him in.
