RIP Frank Buckles

The last surviving American veteran of the First World War died today. According to Wikipedia, there are only 2 veterans from the war left — both British — as well as a Polish soldier who fought against the Red Army’s invasion of Poland in 1919.

I sincerely hope someone has been able to interview these men before they pass on. As time passes, even the number of Second World War is beginning to dwindle. The more of their memories and experiences we can document, the better.
