Y'all are very welcome…

…for my service, but my Veteran's Day salute is going to the guy with time in grade...
Ninety-three years ago, Frank Buckles took the oath of enlistment and joined the U.S. Army. He was under age 16, but dreamed of service and adventure and realized that dream during his duty in Europe during World War One. Today, at 109 years of age, Mr. Buckles is recognized as the last living U.S. Veteran of World War One…
Thanks, Frank.

Hat tip to Chris Scheer at the VA's new blog, VANtage Point.
