–  My Take  –

I guess one could say that ‘the chapter has now closed’ on that brief part of history known as ‘The War to End All Wars’; WWI.

The passing of Frank Buckles was of course historic but it was just so amazing to even contemplate this man and his story.  When I first heard about this hero, my curiosity hit high gear.  Just do the math.  This man was 16 years old and fighting in a world war at a time when MOST of the people on this earth had not even been born yet!   And in fact most of the people that were just born during the war years have passed on way before him…

An amazing and inspiring life.  A great man and a great patriot.  All American Frank Buckles.  Thank You and all your fellow comrades that fought for us.   Until we meet again…
