Last U.S. World War I veteran dies at 110
Frank W. Buckles passed away on Sunday at the age of 110. He was the last surviving U.S. veteran of WW I.
4.7 million Americans served in the military during the First World War, and Mr. Buckles was among 2 million U.S. troops who shipped to France during the war.
His effort is remembered alongside millions of other U.S. veterans who have served their country so nobly and with such sacrifice. We can only hope that we are worthy of their legacy, and that we continue the fight to preserve a democratic nation. "Made in USA" means little if there isn't a thriving economy to support it.
