Oldest Marine passes away, age 107

| January 13, 2021

KoB sends in word that Dorothy “Dot” Cole has passed away at age 107. She was the oldest living Marine until her death.

The News & Observer does a great write up on Dot and her journey through service during World War II. We talked about this amazing lady on her birthday a few months back. Oldest living US Marine celebrates 107th birthday in North Carolina.

Fair winds and following seas, Sergeant Cole.
