An then, there was only one...

I picked up today's morning paper and just below the fold was an article about students from a local high school who had an opportunity to speak with Frank Buckles, the last remaining American World War I veteran. They were learning about World War I in their class and their teacher had wanted them to gain more then what any history book could tell them. I have heard of a saying that,"education is what you have left after you have forgotten everything else." I hope these students gain a better understanding of what happened during this time in history from Mr. Buckles. He will be a 108 in February 2009. Article
