    May Cpl Buckles rest in peace. The lack of respect for the WW I monument in Washington is a crime. I hope the national press has the respect to cover his funeral which should be at Arlington.

    Been there. Every American should go once in their life-time.

    Although I doubt you will get anywhere near the place when they inter him.

    It's sad that this generation is just about gone,It looks like there are only 2 WW I veterans left anywhere.

    That is incredibly sad, but it kind of made me happy to see he died peacefully at his home if you know what I mean. What a life! He's seen a lot.
