Last US Doughboy passes.

Frank W Buckles, 1901-2011.  Sounds like he was a good-natured, amiable sort who did not take his status as the last remaining US WWI veteran as being anything except a testament to his longevity… and as an opportunity to push for refurbishing and rededicating DC’s WWI memorial as a national one.

Odd that I had a WWI song up yesterday, too.
