    Thanks for recognizing this great Veteran who deeply appreciated the care he received from VA. Now let’s support his efforts to create a national memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC for the millions of U.S. veterans of World War I. Check out the World War I National Memorial Foundation which Mr. Buckles chaired until his death at http://www.wwimemorial.org/ .

    Reading on Mr. Buckles I came across the American Legion and they still have their Paris post FR01, the city of Paris provides them with an apartment space to the post, after they lost their home thanks to the VA tossing them out Pershing Hall and on the street … Nice to see the French still remember and honor our boys from both world wars.

    Mr. Buckles hoped some day this nation will build a world war I memorial for those 4,734,990 Americans service in the Great War..
