I just learned that Mr. Frank Buckles the last surviving American veteran of World War I has died. With his death, we loose the last living link to the many men that fought in what was optimistically called "The war to end all wars". World War I was the point that America took it's place on the world stage as a major power and we never looked back.
So now, Mr. Buckles has joined his long lost comrades.
May he rest in peace
