Last WWI Vet on MSNBC

I saw this on Night Line last night and thought it was worthy of some recognition.  Frank Buckles is a veteran of both WWI and WWII, and the story last night stated that Mr. Buckles is the last known WWI veteran alive today at 107 years old.  I thought it was noteworthy that the network took the time to make note of this and recognize this remarkable man.  And…may we never forget what those men sacrificed during WWI for their country.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
