A Veterans Day Story

Today is the federally observed holiday honoring our veterans. Because the actual holiday fell on a Sunday, it is today that some people get a day off with pay. Originally, this day was set aside as a day to honor the armistice of WWI, better known back then as Armistice Day.

So today, I want to link my readers up with a story about what appears to be the last surviving veteran of what was then known as the Great War.

Here is a story about Frank Buckles, American.

Have a Happy Safe Veteran's Day.

I read this today at AOW. Fantastic story, and as I said, I hope his family has recorded his stories for future generations.
