The Last U.S. Veteran of World War I
I was unaware that any U.S. WWI veterans were still alive, but just saw a story at CNN about Frank Buckles -- the last survivor. According to his Wikipedia entry, he enlisted in the U.S. army at age 16. That was in 1917. He turned 109 today. Happy birthday Mr. Buckles!
