In 1916, Charlotte L. Winters called on the secretary of the Navy and asked why women weren't allowed to enlist. A year later, she had begun her military career. This week, Mrs. Winters - the nation's oldest female military veteran - died in her sleep at the Fahrney-Keedy life care community in Boonsboro. She was 109. "She is the last female World War I veteran," American Legion spokeswoman Ramona E. Joyce said yesterday. With Mrs. Winters' death, there are only four surviving U.S. veterans from the "war to end all wars," according to the Scripps Howard News Service, which tracks living veterans of that war. Since the beginning of the year, six - including Mrs. Winters on Tuesday - have died.

With all the attention given lately to the "embedded" press, many people might want to take their own try at living as the military does. I decided to start gradually -- with World War II. The USS New Jersey, the nation's largest battleship, was launched at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Dec. 7, 1942, a year to the day after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The end of World War II might have been the end of the New Jersey, as new forms of warfare obviated the classic ship vs. ship mission of battleships.

THE FEDERAL Maritime Administration has wisely joined the Navy in suspending shipbreaking until it has had time to think the problem through. Until a high-level Defense Department panel reports in two months on health and environmental problems and other issues, neither agency will send its decommissioned ships to be broken up for scrap by untrained, ill-equipped, slave-wage labor polluting the waters and beaches of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. There must be a better way.A series of articles in The Sun detailed the illegal and unsafe ways these great old ships are dismantled in fly-by-night yards.
