FRONTENAC, Kan. (AP) _ Frank J. Bozick, who served in World War
II and is the oldest known veteran in Kansas, has died. He was 105.

Bozick died early Saturday morning at the Sunset Manor Nursing
Home in Frontenac. A staff member at the nursing home confirmed the
death.

Bozick was drafted at age 38 to fight in World War II and was
called ``Pops'' by younger soldiers while he serving in the U.S.
Army doing tank repair.

A historian at American Legion national headquarters in
Indianapolis last year confirmed in a letter that Bozick, who was
born Feb. 11, 1903, was the oldest living veteran in Kansas.
