Biographical / Historical

The Last Man’s Club was a group of the World War I veterans of the Arrowhead country who served as a group with the 62nd and 67th Coast Artillery Corps in France. The Corps was formed into an Army Artillery Park and its primary function was to supply ammunition for the heavy artillery of the American and French armies. The men gathered annually to renew acquaintances and discuss common experiences on or near the anniversary date of their departure for training in California December 17, 1917. In 1982, 26 veterans remained with an average age of 89. At the annual meeting, it was determined to “retire” the club.
