Are Rehnquist and Stevens the last WW2 vets in senior government?


According to this, Chief Justice William Rehnquist was in the USAAF during World War 2, and Justice John Stevens was a US Navy man.

I suspect they are the last veterans of that war still in full-time employment as officials in the Federal government in a senior role.

(Amongst members of Congress, I see that Ernest Hollings served (USA) but Robert Byrd apparently did not.)
