A Lifetime of History
Frank Buckles ~ WWI Veteran
Last month (April 2007) marked the 90th anniversary of when America entered the Great War. President Woodrow Wilson called it the war to end all wars.
More than 4 million Americans were mobilized for World War One.
Only four remain.
One of them is 106-year-old Frank Buckles of Jefferson County.
As we head into Memorial Day weekend, Cecelia Mason talks to Buckles about his memories of two wars, his life today, and his gratitude.
This story aired May 24, 2007, on the program “Outlook.” Cecelia Mason is the producer.
