Default A moment of silence please.

America's LAST WWI Vet has passed away in West Virginia.

America's Last WWI Veteran Dies - West Virginia Headline News and Talk Radio

This man at the age of 16 lied to go protect his and others country from Evil. How many 16 year olds of today would do that?

It amazes me and makes me sad that we do not have a National WWI memorial we have a WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, and they are gunning for a memorial for the current war/wars.

The stories that man could have told and the lessons he could have taught.....A moment of silence has been more then earned by this gentleman.

The man definitely deserves a moment of silence.

A prayer has been sent to accompany him on his final journey.

Thank you Mr. Frank Buckles!

"He'd dedicated much of his time toward efforts to build a memorial in Washington to honor the five-Million Americans who served in World War I. Sadly, as he died, the legislation to commission the memorial is stalled in Washington with the support largely of only US Senator Jay Rockefeller and Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito."
