Three Cheers For Three Survivors

Here’s a sobering fact: according to the Department of Veterans Affairs, there are only three US World War I vets still alive.

The Chicago Tribune profiles one of them: Frank Buckles, who at age 106 is the youngest of the three. The Tribune notes that quite appropriately, “Buckles will serve as a marshal in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, sharing the starring role with actor Gary Sinise”.
