Approximately 3 million. However, they are passing away at a rate of 1,100 per day! There are approximately 4 million US veterans of WW 2 still living. The number is approximate, because 1,100 of them pass away each day! Thank god the long overdue Memorial to them will finally be dedicated in Washington, DC, on May 29, 2004. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections About 3 1/2 million of the 16 million US Veterans of WW 2 are still with us. We lose on average about 1,100 a day. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com

There are no more veterans of World War 1 alive. If they were alive they would be roughly 120 years old now.
