Today, Tuesday, March 15th, 2011, to commemorate Frank Buckles' service to our Country and to coincide with his Memorial Service, I am flying three Flags at half-staff in front of my home. The current U.S. Flag (50-Stars), a 48-Star U.S. Flag (the then current Flag that Frank Buckles served under in both WWI & WWII), and the U.S. Army Flag.
Rest In Peace, Frank Buckles !
