Last Surviving American WWI Veteran Dies

Last Surviving American WWI Veteran Dies: "America's last surviving World War One veteran, a real-life hero raised in Oklahoma, has died."

This is a very interesting story. Frank Buckles, who served in France and England during WWI as an ambulance driver—just like Ernest Hemingway on the Italian front.

He will be interred in State this coming month at the U.S. Capital, followed by burial at Arlington Cemetery.

Buckles was the last surviving WWI veteran in the U.S. There are two others left who live in England.
