When 101-year-old Ernest C. Deetjen passed away Tuesday, so too did the final connection to Hagerstown's World War I Last Man Club.
Deetjen, who met both President Woodrow Wilson and President Bill Clinton, was a member of a club that started 50 years ago with 199 members and became more exclusive as the years passed.
In 1994, he became the group's last surviving member.
Officials with Morris Frock American Legion Post 42 said Wednesday they are not sure if there is any official procedure that must be carried out when the final member of a Last Man Club dies. After all, it is a situation they have never had to deal with before.
