Frank Woodruff Buckles, age 106, is the last living WWI U.S. veteran to finish basic training and be stationed overseas prior to the end of the war.
There's only one left who actually was stationed overseas in WWI.
He turns 107 on February 1st.
Lately it has occured to me that mortality sucks. I would be lying if I said that I am not afraid of it.
And actually, Buckles (though he served in France as a driver for officers) did not see combat.
So all of the American WWI combat veterans are gone now.
