Frank Buckles enlisted for World War I at 16 after lying about his age. He made it home again and ultimately became that war's last surviving U.S. veteran, campaigning for greater recognition for his comrades-in-arms before dying at 110.
No question, just thought I would share.

I think he's the last American soldier to have served in WWI. A report I heard this morning suggested that there might be two others still living--one in Great Britain, and the other in Australia.
Regardless, he did a great thing for our country, and for his fellow veterans. May Mr. Buckles rest in peace.
