Nation Prepares For Farewell to WWI Veterans

With the recent passing of Harry Landis of Sun City, Florida, 107-year-old Frank W. Buckles of Charles Town, West Virginia is now the last known remaining American veteran of World War I. Buckles, who joined the U.S. Army at the age of 16, remains in excellent health, and served as Honorary Marshal for World War I in the 2007 National Memorial Day Parade. Still, the nation should give pause to remember the millions of Americans who served during “The Great War,” and honor the valor and sacrifice that they demonstrated in the fields and trenches of Europe, 90 years ago.

Frank Buckles was interviewed in the inaugural issue of American Valor Quarterly, available by clicking here.Frank Buckles
