With the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) this morning, there are no longer any World War II veterans serving in the Senate.
The remaining WWII veterans are both members of the House of Representatives. They are:
- Rep. John Dingell, a Democrat from Michigan
- Rep. Ralph Hall, a Republican from Texas
In addition to Lautenberg, the Senate has lost two other WWII veterans in recent months:
- Daniel Inouye, a Democrat from Hawaii, died in December
- Daniel Akaka, also a Democrat from Hawaii, retired in January
The current Congress has the fewest number of veterans overall since World War II.
