Grabbed this from Cranky Epistles. Gotta do it.
Apparently there is one living veteran of the American Expeditionary Force, Mr. Fred Buckles, of Charles Town, WV. He "inflated" his age to go to war -- he was born in 1901. He is the last of two million men who served in the AEF in WWI.
When Mr. Buckles dies, he should receive a full state funeral. Not just for himself, but as the representative of all of those men who did go over there. Full-on pomp and circumstance.
To help facilitate, you can do three things:
1) Write to your elected reps;
2) Write to your local news outlets; and
3) Blog about it. Honoring our vets is something we should do every day, not just once a year.
